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.
