In collaboration with Audio Technica and James Lye, we conducted a drum tuning and studio recording workshop at Lasalle College of the Arts on the 24th of October.
On 7th November I will be conducting another such workshop for SMU students, this time, only drum tuning. Not long after I will be conducting a similar workshop for ITE Central students.
On the 21st of November, I am conducting a snare tuning workshop for anyone who wants to sign up. The location will depend on the number of people who sign up. It is free. Just drop me a message at 97254846 and we can talk from there.
We will have more courses in november and december, all free.
MAKE DRUMS IN YOUR HOME. With our minimalist methods of drum making, you can make the drums of your dreams with just a few basic everyday tools. The main tool you need is your mind. DM me to learn how.
Custom 13×7 aluminium snare in a beautiful “Jupiter” patina finish for an international customer. The finish was done by our good friend @predator_percussion and this is one of our many international collaborations. We source the best from around the world and we share and respect each other’s work often.
To do this snare justice we put on a combination of brass and gold hardware, with a royal purple snare strap for the Canopus Vintage Dry snare wires. It’s a beautiful snare and sounds very articulate, punchy and meaty.
DRUM MAKING SECRETS REVEALED. Learn the craft from the ones who started it all in Singapore: Pantheon Percussion.
I am going to take a small number of students for one-to-one lessons in drum making for a token fee. Learn to craft ANY drum, learn to repair and maintain drums and cymbals, find a new way to express yourself, and even start your own business.
Drum making is an art; a craft that not many people have access to. Now it is readily available.
In my lessons, I will reveal all my contacts, processes, techniques, and give full access to my tools and workshop. You will not need any tools yourself and you won’t need to set up a workshop for yourself. You just need to be willing to learn and to persevere till the end.
Learn to create something unique for yourself: I will help you.
Custom 12-ply 14×7 Bubinga snare with black nickel hardware and brass accents. The yellow gold strap was for extra personality.
Dale and Tabitha of Noivil Studios had been telling me of their interest in trying a Bubinga snare for certain recordings. They wanted projection and power, yet depth and tone. We agreed that we should experiment, and come up with a killer aesthetic while we were at it.
This snare is looking and sounding absolutely delicious. Come try it out.
14×6.5 Myrtle stave snare, the ultimate in phat tone with a ridiculously wide tuning range. This is one of several snares that will be available for jamming at Tonehouse Studios.
Along with an ever increasing range of Pantheon products (cymbals and drums) and premium Sonor drum kits, you need to check out the other gear available here at Tonehouse Studios, available 24 hours, in town, with video and audio recording amenities.
14×14 Purpleheart Stave Baritone SNOM (Snare/ floor tom) with a hand-rubbed high gloss finish, quite possibly the first in Singapore. This is the first of our fully-custom Pantheon Elite series drums.
We used the “double-staining” technique to tone the colour of the wood with black and purple to enhance the complexity of the grain. The shell was originally a pink/ brown mix of open-grained staves and it took plenty of back-breaking work to oil, seal, harden, stain, varnish, sand, glaze, polish, and wax.
We finished it off with a selection of premium hardware for maximum versatility. We selected the thickest 12.7mm floor tom mounts and legs to handle the weight of this beast; it’s heavier than the bass drum! We hand-cut extra deep and wide snare beds to accommodate Canopus’s 42-strand back beat wires: you need all these to make sure there is maximum buzz at this depth.
Above all, the SOUND of this snare is simply fantastic: focused, thick tone with plenty of projection and articulation. This snare can play it all.
This drum is part of an exclusive, one-of-a-kind 4-piece SNOM kit in 12/14/20 configuration. Stay tuned for further updates on this SNOM kit.
