RBH Drums Americana Jump Kit

Impossibly big and rich tones from a tiny grab-and-go setup.

Virginia Beach–based RBH Drums has been quietly but steadily building steam as one of the preeminent custom shops, forgoing flashy, over-the-top concoctions for more refined, classy single-ply snares (Prestige series) and vintage-style 3-ply mahogany/poplar/mahogany kits and snares (Monarch series). While Monarch drums are offered à la carte in the most common sizes, including 10″ to 18″ toms, 16″ to 24″ bass drums, and 13″ and 14″ snares, owner/master craftsman Bruce Hagwood recently developed a unique and super-compact cocktail-style setup, dubbed the Americana Jump Kit.

The basic Americana Jump Kit setup—street price: $1,750—comprises a 3-ply 13×16 bass drum (on a Lift riser), a matching 5×13 snare, an Axis snare basket, and a custom case. Add-on toms include a 7×10 ($550) and a 13×13 ($780). Our review kit, which did not include toms, was covered in a striking peacock pearl, but more natural finishes, like maple, mahogany, and burgundy stain, as well as custom inlay options, are also available.

Check out a video demo below.
