"You knocked it out of the park! Can't tell you how happy I am to play the bass drum and hear the pitch articulation I've been wanting to hear. I absolutely love the way it sounds. I'm telling everyone about you. Many thanks, buddy..."

"...I've played with multiple cover bands, weddings, you name it, all over the east coast...I have to say, I played at a club where the house kit was made by Rukus, it is the most incredible kit. I took pictures of the kit every time I played them, as I hoped to one day purchase it in the same wood & color. It is absolutely beautiful and sounds amazing, and always stays in tune! Your work is amazing, and I truly appreciate your attention to details and look forward to ordering my own set, it would be an honor to have the Rukus name on the front of MY bass drum..."

"Beyond thrilled to be a part of the Rukus Drums USA family of players...Peter handcrafts each shell from start to finish. The results are drums that feel so good under your sticks that you can't stop playing!"

"By far the most beautiful, not only in looks but also in sound, my Rukus snare drum is the absolute highlight of my kit, blowing away every person who hears it. It's found a permanent home on my set, it’s amazing!"

"Best drums your money can ever buy without question! Pete’s attention to every detail is like nothing I’ve ever seen. With 4 snares and a soon-to-be 8-piece kit, I trust Pete with anything I need..."

"Pete Lazos is an old school master instrument maker who understands the demands of a modern day drummer. Pete will address every detail a performer is concerned with and work tirelessly to make the sound you envision in your mind a reality. My Rukus snare drums allow me to create every color and articulation I want to express. Rukus drums are simply the finest instruments I have ever played!"
