Anchor Drums, located in Youngsville, North Carolina, was started several years ago by owner and master builder Shawn Skipper. These drums are just beginning to create some buzz on the custom drum scene, and are unique in more ways than one. Using shells built for them by a company other than Keller, Anchor Drums are crafted by one person in one shop, with great care. Their custom options are endless, allowing for really any type of wood or finish, but their proprietary long, thick tube lugs and standard maple/mahogany/maple shells are what has really begun to set them apart from other custom companies. All their drums are built to order, and Chicago Drum Exchange has been fortunate enough to become one of the first shops to carry these beautiful drums.
This custom Anchor Galleon series 3 piece set features oversized tube lugs, and 100% mahogany shells with reinforcement rings. Sizes are 14x8, 16x16, and 26x14. The finish is "vintage mahogany" with a light mahogany stripe in the middle of each shell. Coated Remo Ambassadors batter on the toms, clear Remo Ambassadors resonant side. Fiberskyn Ambassador bass drum resonant side w/ Anchor logo. Clear Powerstroke 3 batter side on bass drum.
Drum sizes are 14" x 8", 16" x 16", and 26" x 14". Hardware and stands not included.
