New Pricing (effective 1/1/05)

As a part-time builder, and as a drummer myself, I realize pricing is a very important issue. Whether you are a pro player, a weekend warrior or a hobbyist, your hard-earned dollars need to go where you can get the most value. I also realize drums can often be purchased in big-box music stores or on the internet for ridiculously low prices. How those prices are achieved is an interesting topic in and of itself.

That being said, I have made the decision to sell direct and not through distribution, with only one or two exceptions.

While I personally try to patronize my local family owned music stores, I have a hard time letting a large chain make 30-50% on an instrument I have toiled over. Trust me, my profits don't even come close to those numbers, and I often wonder when the last time was that they cut themselves on a router table. I may be biting the hand that could feed me, but who cares. My customers are more important.

RatTrap drums use only the finest materials available and are made by hand, one drum at a time. The pricing below represents my efforts to bring you an hand crafted instrument at a price that is as reasonable as possible.

Base price for Solid Shell or Stave Snare drums: Was $875.00, NOW $675.00

This price includes:

  • Trick or Nickel strainer
  • 2.3mm triple flange hoops
  • Evans, Remo, or Aquarian heads of your choice
  • Puresound wires of your choice
  • Chrome plated lugs
  • Any size drum, within reason
  • 8 lug configuration

A sampling of wood species included at this price (many other species are available, let me know what you might be interested in):

Brazillian Cherry, Walnut, Maple, Birch, Oak, Padauk, Purpleheart, Yellowheart*.

*Wood pricing is dynamic and subject to availability and market pricing.

Other more exotic woods can be used: curly maple, bird's eye maple, wenge, ebony, bocote, cocobolo, lacewood, rosewood, etc. Premium pricing will be applied based upon market availability and pricing.

Shipping is additional, but usually is in the area of $25 to anywhere in the continental U.S.

The following upgrades are also available:

  • Die cast hoops
  • Wood hoops
  • Black chrome, brass or powdercoated hardware, anodized lugs
  • Strainer of your choice
