Almost a year to the day after introducing his carbon-fibre snare drums at the 2009 Toronto Indoor Games, inventor Terry Cleland of Downsview, Ontario, has brought out a line of bass and tenor drums that complete the product line. Cleland’s band, the Grade 3 400 Squadron of which he is the Pipe-Major, competed with prototypes of the new drums at this year’s Toronto Indoor.
While firm pricing has not yet been set, Cleland says that a 28″ X 16″ bass drums will retail for approximately $2,400. Tenor drums, depending on size, will be in the range of $1,600. He says that his company can also deliver bass drums with pre-installed custom graphics on the heads as an optional extra.
