  • Where can i buy shells?

    Hi,
    i have been googling the past few days and have so far only found shops in the US who can supply shells for my next project. I'm looking for 12",13",14", 4" deep and one 16"x10-12" for the bassdrum.

    Could anyone point me in the right direction?

    Thanks,

    Kari

    1) where are you
    2) look for used drums to 'convert'?

      I'm in Stockholm, Sweden. Sorry i should have stated that i'd prefer to buy within EU so i do not get to pay customs and etc crap.

      I would prefer to build everything from "scratch" but if that is not an option and/or to convert a used kit is cheaper i'll go with that.

      Thanks,

        I think converting a used kit would be way less expensive. I have no idea what you'd do to get bare shells over there, but it would definitely be pricey over here.
        Stick twirling - because you obviously have mastered all other aspects of drumming already, right?

            First: Thanks to everyone for their inputs!

            HighWood drums do supply shells for edrum DIY'ers, and pretty darn cheap to. However i found a 10" and a 12" Tama tomtom for a mere 30EUR so i bought that instead.

            Thanks again,

              I only know the thomann cyberstore.
              Think it is on the swedish site now. If not, pick the right flag.

                For those of us in the US - I got all of my drums on eBay from a seller named Daddysmusiconline. They are a local music store around here, so if you live in the northeast you can arrange for store pickup and avoid shipping . I paid a total of $12 for all of my 12, 13, 16 inch toms which have since been cut in half. The 16 inch was brand new, too! I'm not affiliated with these guys in any way, but I highly recommend them--they are very flexible, cheap, and reasonable should anything come up.
