Outlaw Drums is a high-end boutique drum maker in the business of bringing ancient wood back to life! The company prides itself on the fact that each and every drum they build is handmade from start to finish. No two of their beautiful, expertly crafted drums are exactly the same; each has its own unique personality and charm.
Outlaw utilizes two building methods, stave and segmented construction, to bring out the tonal values of the various species of wood. All of the wood is hand-picked by Michael Outlaw to ensure only the finest drums are produced.
Outlaw Drums specializes in repurposing wood from old buildings, houses, floors, or anywhere in which the wood is of the highest quality and would otherwise be left to rot away.
Building drums with salvaged 200 to 600-year-old wood not only lessens the stress on our environment, but creates a better sounding instrument with distinct tonal differences not found in farmed wood.
