Lavmaster Percussion

Lavmaster Percussion Lavmaster Percussion specializes in creating custom drum kits from the ground up. There are no pre-made shells, but each shell is created on site.

I am an experienced drummer and hobby woodworker. I have been playing since I was 12, and have never looked back. Lately, I have merged my passion for music and drums with my interest in woodworking to create Lavmaster Percussion. I started this in December of 2015, and look forward to many more years of building high quality, custom drums. These drums are not built with pre-made shells (ex. keller shells), but are made from solid hardwood that are cut, glued, shaped, and finished, all by hand.

So my current project is to refinish and restore and old pear export kit. Original is all chrome, which is going to get stripped off, and an obsidian grey finish put on. Hardware is being roughed up to give it a more brushed chrome look.

Starting beginning of September, I am looking into offering beginner drum lessons. I am looking to fill up about 4 hours/day, or 8 half-hour lessons. Message me for more info and for available time slots

Here we go! First order is on the way! 22x16 gong drum with custom stand. Will be built using African Mahogany. Should be a fun build. As with the more traditional style of gong drum, this drum will have a 24” head sitting on a 22” shell with no bottom skin.

If you could take a one hour lesson from any musician of your choice on any instrument of your choice, who would you choose, and what instrument would you choose?

If you could meet one professional musician of your choice, who would it be?

I have a new model line in the idea stage at the moment. It would be the FT13 series, standing for Friday the 13th. It would be black walnut shells with black hardware. Any thoughts?

This is the intended badge to go on the side of each drum shell built. Thoughts?

Who is your favourite musician?

Mine would be Matthew Greiner, drummer of August Burns Red

So, if it is possible, I would like to start to set up an evening, or even a whole day, where musicians can get together, learn from other musicians, play, listen, and just have fun. Sort of a free-flowing workshop I guess. Here's what would need to fall into place, so if there are any ideas, please throw them at me. A venue, some people to help get it organized, people to oversee certain areas (security, different workshop categories [guitar, drums, etc.] and probably others), some advertising, and just some help getting things figured. So if you have any ideas, that would be wonderful. I was thinking the venue should be somewhere other than a church, only so it is open, and welcoming, for those who would otherwise be inclined not to show up if it was.
