A Different Kind of Drum Builder

Swindoll Custom Drums is a small drum company in Southern Mississippi. We are a team made up of individuals who share a common vision to create the highest quality drums that we can. We love music, and we love the drums we build. As drummers ourselves, we feel that we are in tune with our customers’ needs and wants. Every single drum is hand made from a variety of hand picked exotic woods to the customer’s exact specifications. Paying attention to even the smallest details, we ensure that no corner is ever cut. We take pride in our craftsmanship and the thought that we’re creating instruments that will be around long after we are gone.

Buy Swindoll Drums

We get it. Buying quality gear can be a burden. We’re here to help.

Pay 12 month installments

Your first payment acts as your deposit. Once we receive that initial payment, we’ll begin your custom build and have snare drums ready to ship after we receive the third payment and full kits ready to ship after the sixth payment.
We’ll continue sending you invoices to cover the remaining balance.

Some of our talented friends have put our stuff to good use.

“My experience with Jordan was 100% positive from initial discussions all the way through delivery.  My Swindoll Custom Drums kit was built around a glorious 26 inch kick drum and it sounds as amazing as it looks.  Beautiful drums in every way!”
