Here are just some of the many services MKE Drum Co. offers.

BEARING EDGES

Do you have a drum with a wood shell that just won’t tune properly? Chances are it is because the bearing edges are in rough shape. Over time, the aging and drying out of vintage wood shells can take a toll on the edges of the shell where the heads make contact. Even a sloppy factory job can leave you with the edges in very poor playing condition. Here at MKE Drum Co., we take extra care to cut and refinish bearing edges with the utmost precision and attention to detail. We offer everything from standard 45 degree cuts to full round-overs to provide you with the proper tonality. If you are in need of getting your bearing edges redone, please contact us for a cost estimate.

REPAIRS

We get it – drums are heavily played and that means from time to time they require repairs or maintenance. Do you have a drum with broken or even missing parts? We can help locate and repair the problem. We do everything from part replacement to filling holes, re-wrapping, gluing wood separation, refinishing, you name it! We’d like to help you relieve your broken drum woes, so please contact us for a price quote.

RESTORATION

Got a vintage drum set that has seen better days? Maybe it needs a simple detailing and a few missing parts replaced. Or maybe it needs a complete overhaul including major shell repairs, a custom wrap or finish job, broken parts replaced with original period correct versions, etc. Whatever size project it may be, we can help! Drop us a line over on the contact page and we can help get those drums singing like they used to.
