Handmade Drum shells defined. No automated machinery to be found with Rukus designs. Each drum expresses a unique organic character, only achieved by human hands. 

All wood materials are manufactured and procured in the USA.

At Rukus, we believe the pinnacle of sound, character, and performance starts with the drum shell. We not only design and build our own shells, but we also build the molds they are made in. No high-tech machinery used here. Rukus shells are as hands-on as possible. Fabricated with that vintage vibe drummers are searching for, with modern edging and performance. Warmth and charm with nearly endless build layups. Just like that special K ride, it’s an instrument to cherish for many years.

At Rukus, we are always building and creating. These instruments will make their way to the product page frequently. We truly feel what sets is apart is our endless array of build options and custom specs. With Rukus Drums, the shell lay up and construction are virtually endless for a specific and vital reason. We don’t offer limited choices to get the closest sound that is desired, we custom-build a shell to achieve the exact sound desired.
