  • Tristan did a superb job of making a vellum head for my 1937 “Premier
    Popular” snare, thereby breathing new life back into an elderly drum

  • Since that purchase, the cymbals have toured the UK for sold out shows, and been played multiple times on radio X and BBC 6 music – and today been involved in an EP my band have just recorded.
    The amount of complements I get for my hardware is hard to count.
    Without your help, none of that would be possible.
    Hope to see you soon

  • I have a Premier 2000 snare drum I purchased in 1972, it is an 8″ x 14″ chrome plated aluminum drum with a flo beam parallel strainer. It is the greatest snare drum EVER. I have been recording with this drum for 47 years! I was able, with your wonderful help, to purchase some replacement parts in order to restore the drum to original condition! I am so excited I can’t stand it! Thank you for caring enough to have the parts available. Best day ever!

  • Tristan at drum attic has been an invaluable help sourcing parts, giving advice and helping with the trickier side of drum restorations. He is my number one go to for anything drum related now. I’ve especially been amazed with the wooden bass drum hoop restoration he has done for me for various kits! His work is a credit to himself!

  • Showed up to this ‘Aladins cave’ and bought a vintage Olympic kit, some zyn cymbals and some other bits.  All very nice and now used regularly.

    Was able to part exchange an old snare and some old hardware. Which is great!
