Half of an old saying goes "imitation is the most sincere form of flattery." The lesser known other half says "invention is the most sincere form of criticism." I think the existence of Dunnett Classic drums can attest to both of those adages. It's a big part of the reason why I started working with drums in 1978. As a drummer, I was unsatisfied with the products that were available and began modifying other manufacturer's shells and hardware, doing refinishing, bearing edges etc. It became a labour of lust. By 1994 I had designed, developed and built several prototypes based on my own rather unorthodox concepts, simple innovation and what I felt was lacking from existing products (including the creation of the planet's first titanium drum). Those prototypes ended up in the hands of some very capable drummers, producers and studio engineers. The positive feedback was overwhelming-as was the demand for more.

Mission Statement
To work with you, my fellow drummers and percussionists; to share my experience as a builder, to listen to you, your thoughts and ideas and respond; to create drums that are affordable, unique and personal. If that sounds like something you would be interested in, please, read on.
