“Since I was a kid, Tom Schultz has helped me find my sound. From sticks to drum heads, he was always there to help guide me along. Now I have the privilege to play his 100% Maple drums made in the United States! These instruments are truly assembled by a master craftsman from start to finish. Did I mention that the sound can’t be beat either?!”
