It's simple. We care.

Better quality products, more options and great customer service. Nordic is created by drummers, for drummers. It's time to modernize the craft of drum shell making.

the future of drum shells

Whether you’re a boutique or a major brand, we offer a custom-tailored shell that can single-handedly expand our clients’ product lines. And because we create our own plywood in-house on state-of-the-art equipment, you’ll have access to custom drum shells made from any wood species and any number of plys and grain orientations. No more limiting yourself to maple, birch and mahogany (...not that there’s anything wrong with that).

New inventory options means a whole new consumer base for you. Fast turnaround times means you won’t be sabotaging your cash flow waiting for your shipment. No minimum orders on our standard woods means you can experiment with new products or product lines. By adding premium wood species to your drum shells, you can create one-of-a-kind lines with special edition pricing.

And it's all made by fellow drummers in our Minneapolis workshop.

In short, you talked and we listened. Oh, did we mention our 100% guarantee?
