What's in the Vault? - Pedigree Drums

When the Auckland Drumshop took over our new space, we inherited an old bank vault. This gave us the perfect excuse to showcase vintage, rare and boutique drum gear that you would not normally get to see. It also means some of New Zealand's custom drum builders have a space where they can display their fine work.

Currently on display in the Vault is this beautiful piece from Pedigree Drums. Pedigree Drums are New Zealand made custom drums. Drums shells are stave construction, designed and built in Southland, NZ.


Build Number 005

Build Date: 20th November 2017

English Oak – 20 Stave Construction
Dia. 14 inches
Depth 6.5 inches
Thickness 18 mm

Die cast hoops (x2)
Trick USA Three Stage Throw Off
Pure Sound Snare Wires

Re-Crafted from 1970s furniture, from a dwelling in the Southern town of Gore, New Zealand.

Nice woody tone from the dense English Oak. Dare to tune me high and I’ll rip through the sound barrier!
