Love Custom Drums

7×14 Indian Rosewood Snare

A beautifully crafted and sonically superb drum built to withstand the rigors of the road.

Love Custom Drums founder Buddy “Love” McRoy spent years modifying his own instruments, whether that involved cutting new bearing edges or applying new finishes. But he didn’t start building drums from scratch until after being frustrated with the inability to order a custom kit from another company to his own specifications. The pet project soon transitioned into a full-fledged company when friends and fellow drummers started offering money to buy McRoy’s unique creations.

The Love Custom snare we have for review is one of McRoy’s personal favorites: a 7×14 stave-shell made out of .625″-thick Indian rosewood. The top bearing edge is cut to forty-five degrees and then rounded, and the bottom edge is what Buddy calls a “dull forty-five” and has slightly deeper than normal snare beds. All of the hardware is aged brass, including the ten tube lugs, single-flanged hoops, and family crest badge.
