I’m doing my best to let osmosis tap into such a wealth of talent and inspiration :)

From the “Best Gear of 2017’ in February 2018 issue of DRUM! Magazine ........

A bunch of Rustico’s ready to be lathed.

Orchestral cymbals - 15” Pair, 17” Pair and 16” & 18” Suspended.

A comparison between an old k and one of my OSC’s.

Give it 25 years and a whole lot of patina :)  .............

I’m committed to an environmentally sustainable industry and future and since 2018 have carbon offset my business through the mass planting of trees through ‘Carbon Positive Australia’.


Prior to that, I paid for 500 square metres of forest in the Daintree to be preserved in perpetuity as natural habitat. 


I reuse and recycle as much as I can and all lathe chaff and damaged bronze ends up being recycled.
