SJC Custom Drums Tour Series 3-piece Shell Pack Review

Looking for a custom-quality drum kit without the lead time? The SJC Tour Series maple shell pack boasts the same features, integrity, and status as SJC’s made-to-order drums — except these handcrafted American beauties are available on a touring drummer’s schedule and budget. The SJC Tour is a traveling favorite of hardcore drummers David Sandstrom (Refused) and Cameron Losch (Born of Osiris), thanks to its pure, powerful tone and crisp, cutting projection. SJC 45 (45°) bearing edges maximize volume and sustain, and a modern satin stain gives this kit a look that’ll take center stage on the road.

eveything you need to know is in the first 90 seconds

TheCosmicCharizard says:

Here is a secret. 90% of Custom Drum Companies just use Keller shells. Most custom drums sound the same.

kimmy101 says:

Just Keller Shells….

P.o.B pedals says:

They don’t build their own shells like most of the other high end companies do,, they are sourced

Ethan Winograd says:

TheCosmicCharizard says:

Hey SJC, will you guys begin to use more exotic sounding woods like mahogany, bubinga, ash, and walnut?
