Our first years were spent building custom drums. The drums from this era were a straight maple shell with a sharper bearing edge designed by the owner and founder of C&C, Bill Cardwell. Our Gladstone series is made with 7 plies of New England Rock Maple and comes with thicker cuts than the industry standard. It has the attack and projection known of a maple shell, but with a warm tone that makes for a very musical and versatile drum. This line comes standard with Triple Flanged Hoops and our brand new single ended „Art Deco“ lug. This is an exciting addition for us, because we are reintroducing the line that put us on the map with C&C Drums and hopefully many drummers around the globe will enjoy playing it. This is our definitive rock’n’roll drum kit which also features larger kick drum sizes.
