I was curious to see what the Forummites preferences were when it comes to Major Drum Companies and Boutique Drum companies .
For me personally my favourite major drum company and favourite period is Gretsch . I love the USA Custom line and I have owned more Gretsch drums sets than any brand . The sound and feel of the USA Custom is unique and their lacquer finishes are gorgeous .
When it comes to boutique brands - my list begins and ends with Noble and Cooley . The oldest family owned American Drum Company . They make wonderful drums ,that sound great and their finish work is top notch too .
