Garfield - Founder, Drum Doctors.
There is a difference between your drums and those played by the
world’s leading drum artists. The difference is Drum Doctors
- the drum sound specialist with the expertise and experience to
get inside your heads to help you create the perfect drum sound
for the music you play. For top drummers like Josh Freese, Abe Laboriel
Jr., Jim Keltner, John Wysocki, Lars Ulrich, Joey Waronker, Dave
Grohl, Ricky Lawson, Eric Kretz, Ginger Fish, Peter Erskine, Carla
Azar, Brian MacLoud, Stevie Wonder and a host of others who depend
on the highest level of performance and sound quality from their
instruments at all times.
Drum Doctors’ Advantage
In fact, just as professional race-car drivers compete with cars that
are "tweaked" to perform at their maximum potential, professional
drummers play drums that are specially "set-up" to fit their
more critical needs in the studio and on the road. At Drum Doctors we
inspect, true and recalibrate the bearing edges of all our drums. We
use RIMS Suspension Mounts. We make sure all the fittings are adjusted
and that all the parts are operating properly. As our work on dozens
of Gold and Platinum recording projects has proven, when properly diagnosed
these as well as many other small, often subtle refinements make a big
improvement in a drums tone, response and recordability.
More Than Just A Great Drum Sound.
But, at Drum Doctors, getting your set professionally set up is just
the start. We’re available 7 days a week to provide a wide range
of products and services - from fully insured instrument storage, maintenance
and cartage to on-call studio teching and tuning.
We have one of the most extensive rental stocks of classic, contemporary
and custom acoustic and electronic drums in the world, including a collection
of over 300 vintage snare drums, and we are authorized dealers for many
major drum and drum accessory manufacturers. Our well-stocked, well-staffed
repair department can expertly perform any procedure for customizing
and modifying your existing kit to building a new kit to your personal
specifications from the ground up.
