With so many independent drum makers to choose from, it's easy to get jaded. Many "custom" builders buy their shells from a manufacturer, buy their hardware from a mass distributor, slap on a paint job and a badge, and call it a day.
Then, there's A&F.
A&F is a truly unique and boutique drum company based in Austin, Texas. You can literally spot one of their kits from the back of a venue. This outrageous Raw Steel 3 piece drum set is as hip as it gets. This kit is lightweight and made from A&F's exclusive Raw Steel shells, patented Raw Brass Lugs/Hardware, and Whiskey Maple Hoops. The Raw Steel produces a sound that is dryer then A&F's Royal and Copper kits. They're not loud by any means, but they tune lower than you might expect, and they have a perfect balance between punch, warmth, and attack. These drums are extremely microphone friendly ... a sound engineer's dream!
Sizes are 12x8, 16x14 "snom" (floor tom w/snare wires for added effect) and 22x14. Drums only; hardware/cymbals sold separately.
We are very excited to be carrying the A&F line at Drum Center of Portsmouth. Once you play them for yourself, you'll understand why!
