How can I place an order?
Orders can be placed via email or by calling 910-622-5508. This helps get all your details correct and sure that your drums will be built exactly how you want.
Who makes your shells?
I currently work with a variety of small and large shell builders in order to meet the precise tone needs you are looking for. I can accomodate any style shell you like. If you prefer certain woods, mixture of plies, etc it can be done! Other options are Acrylic, Steam Bent, Stave, plus an assortment of various metal shells as well.
How can I get an endorsement?
Please visit the Endorsement section under the Contact link for all information on what Anchor is looking for.
Do Anchor Drums come with a warranty?
I stand behind every drum build! General wear and tear is not covered, but if an issue arises due to construction or hardware defect then I will do everything possible to correct it!
What is the average turnaround time on builds?
Current build time runs around 90 days. Many factors go into each kit and no two builds are the same. The more detail, the longer the wait. This is a small shop, but I work extremely hard to keep builds on schedule, but occasionally various things will extend the wait. Nothing is a "stock" item, so this takes time to complete.
Can you refinish or rewrap my current drums?
Of course! Anchor Drums was born from a love of restoring vintage drums. I would be happy to look at the project and see what I can do for you! Feel free to contact me anytime about it!
Can I come visit the shop?
Definitely! Love meeting drummers and talking drums! Contact me to see when is a good time to swing by and say hi!
Do you have a return policy?
Each build is created to your exact specifications, so there is not a return policy. If there is an issue regarding a part or problem, I will be more than happy to fix any issue that arises.
How much is shipping and handling?
Average cost of shipping Standard Ground in the US is $25 per snare drum and between $150-$200 for 3-piece kits within the US. Shipping charge does vary depending on where are shipping. Please contact for a quote on shipping outside the US.
