Personolized Snare Drums

"Shawn worked closely with me to design the optimal snare for my drumming needs. The outcome was a craftsman's masterpiece."
-Ted Kellher

Drum Set's

Acoustically Enginereed

Drums are designed, then enginered from the shell up to suit your look & feel. We are producing your sound for your situation."


"Since the Band's creation we have been looking for ways to improve our show and adding a Kick Drum has always been something we've wanted to do. Thanks to our friend Shawn Ryan, at Salt Drums in California, we've finally found a way to make it possible. With his expertise we we're able to design The Ultimate Busking Kit which has taken our show to the next level."

"I was so impressed with his drums that I had him custom make me a full Aluminum drum kit to my exact specifications.
The drums exceeded my expectations and consider them a museum piece as the quality, sound and build are flawless.
Shawn, in my humble opinion is the best drum builder, as well as a heck of a nice guy."

"I currently own 6 snare drums, and my custom SALT snare is the pinnacle of my collection. Shawn worked closely with me to design the optimal snare for my drumming needs. The outcome was a craftsman's masterpiece. From it's versatility to it's look, I couldn't be more pleased with my SALT
