DRUMMERS MEDICAL CARE CENTER - Drum Doctor
Custom builds and designs
Paint jobs and graphic arts
How often have you experienced that your snare rattles, your screws are getting rusty, your hoop might have cracked, your cymbals are dirty or cracked and your drum doesn't tune properly anymore.
You keep asking yourself why and what do I do? Well, there are plenty of possibilities and surely need to be looked after.
We can give you a solution and fix all that. There is nothing that can't be done or repaired, unless it's totally broken.
We also can give your drum a new design, perhaps a custom built frame, do repaints on severe scratched toms, snares or bass drums and also add graphic designs and custom artworks to your drums and skins.
