Handmade Drum shells defined. No automated machinery here. Each drum expresses a unique organic character, only achieved by the human hands.

At Rukus, we believe the pinnacle of sound, character and performance starts with the drum shell. We not only designs and build our own shells, we built the jigs 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.
