Default Drumworks Snare ~ info ???

Is Drumworks DW - or something else altogether? I've not seen one of these or heard of this co. before.

Interesting! As to DW, it stands for Drum Workshop, so, NO, not the same company. Maybe someone else can tell what this drum is.

Thanks Mark.

Asked a buddy and he thought it's probably toward the budget end of the market. Definitely not DW.

Judging by the shell, custom tube lugs and the Made in USA badge, I don't think this would be a "budget" drum! Most likely an early "boutique" builder no longer in business. I'm hoping one of our members may recognize the badge and have some more information for us.

No, not Cali.

Asking about Drumworks as I know nothing about the co. or what any collector value might be. As in, is it worth pursuing or not bothering with.

It appears there's more than 1 "Drumworks" outfit using the name Drumworks. Head scratcher ~

It`s not vintage and could use a few more gigs or three or more.

We do like to get to the end of the mystery though.

Kansas City Drumworks. A boutique drum building company that never really gained a foothold.

The one that can tell you more about them is drummer Jim Riley. He was a drum builder for KCDW before he got the gig with country group Rascal Flatts

Being from Kansas City I know a few local drummers that play them. Perhaps 'kcdrumdad' could give some insight.
