K DRUMS – New Zealand Made, Now available at Rockshop!
K DRUMS was born 2002 when then carpenter, Ben Klinkenberg, was looking for a new drum kit. Unable to find exactly what he was after and always wanting to try his hand at drum building, he started down the track of making his own using New Zealand native timbers.
Ben made jigs, acquired specialty machinery and designed custom tooling in order to hone his skills in the drum making game.
And with that, K DRUMS was born.
Handmade entirely from native New Zealand timbers and completed with a natural timber finish, KDRUMS produce a remarkably warm and rich sound to rival that of any topline drums.
The badge says it all. Ben can sit down with you and discuss every aspect of your dream drum. From size through to hardware and finish, everything is able to be customized to fit your ideal look and sound.
Endorsed by many of New Zealand’s top drummers, including Eli Paewai of Six60, KDRUMS are based in New Lynn, Auckland but all products can be shipped worldwide.
All KDRUMS are still hand made by Ben with a close knit team slowly growing to meet the high demand his drums have now created.
