Crafting Stunning Solid Stave Drum Shells: Vintage Meets Modern

Red Rock Drums Australia, established in 2008, are leaders in the bespoke creation of stunning solid stave drums. Their shell design aspects, originally dreamed up by Mat in 2011, have since been attempted by many, but remain the pillars from which their unique sound is produced. The company pays homage to the 'golden era' of drums, coupling vintage richness with modern functionality.

Nature is the hero in Red Rock drums, with the world's most desirable timbers sustainably sourced from their 'lucky country', as well as some of their pacific neighbors. The exceptional tone, resonance and feel under the stick of a Red Rock drum is inimitable.

The Perfect Drum Collaboration

At Red Rock Drums Australia, Roger and Mat's excitement to explore any untapped potential of their phenomenal stave drum shells (especially of their toms and bass drums) was realized with the integration of the Welch Tuning System™ (WTS) hardware.

The first Red Rock + WTS collaboration is a beautiful Fijian Mahogany drum kit with a 12x8 tom-tom, 16x16 floor tom, 20x16 bass drum, and 14x8 snare drum:

The results of this collaboration have been outstanding, and the drums have provided exceptional versatility and creative function.

" absolute game changer for drummers worldwide!"

This three-piece drum kit and snare moves effortlessly between deep rich round tones in a rock context, to warm classic throaty musical pings of earlier rock and bebop jazz tunings.
