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.
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.
14×6.5 Purpleheart Stave snare with a hand-rubbed high gloss finish. 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.
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 (snare/tom) kit in 12/14/14/20 configuration. Stay tuned for further updates on this SNOM kit.
A few weeks ago I decided to work more from home, so I have spent many hours repurposing the rooms of my house. It’s not complete of course but it’s getting there. This used to be my study, and now it’s where I do my finishes and leave them to dry.
The main reason for this, is of course, quality.
Drum making is an art and the more time you can spend honing a single drum, or finish, the higher quality the final product is likely to be. I can spend time developing and perfecting, reworking and revisiting, producing drums of the most exacting standards and beauty.
These are not drums that you churn out. These are drums that you make regardless of cost and time spent. You make them because your soul demands it.
Introducing the Pantheon Elite series. May they rock your world.
We’ve had concert toms for years now but we haven’t really marketed them for some reason. Maybe I was too busy with the drum kits. We set these up at Gryd Studio a while back to record some samples.
Available in different woods, sizes, plies, depths, shell types, finishes, single or double sided, and price points, I think there is something for every orchestra and band. Talk to us and we can make some magic happen.
An eventful day at @scapesg today with @lestersullivan and @hydhirramli , getting all the gear at SCAPE up to speed.
If you haven’t heard, @thedrummerco is a community of drummers who gather together to promote the percussive arts. With the help of a stellar committee of volunteers, a regular stream of activities and workshops have been planned for, in partnership with SCAPE.
For the best possible experience, Pantheon Percussion partnered with SCAPE to ensure that their drumming gear is well serviced, heads refreshed, and cymbals upgraded. Only the best for our little community of drummers.
Stay updated for updates and events organised by @thedrummerco on all social platforms!
Today in the workshop: One of our Beech “Universal” standard snares headed to Hwa Chong International School. On their request we did a custom badge to commemorate the 100th Anniversary of the Institution. For all students past and present: enjoy the celebrations!
Now imagine if every customer customized their own badges. Cool idea? Stay tuned!
