  A note from owner Bud Brownell:

               John Brownell (not related) contacted me because of the coincidence of our last names being the same, came to my shop to meet me tried out several drums and bought a drum this is his testimonial below.

        "Bud, I couldn't be happier with the snare drum you built for me. It is incredibly sensitive over the entire dynamic range, from very soft to very loud and the workmanship is fantastic."

John Brownell: percussionist, percussion instructor - York University,  University of Toronto.


         Wow,  Bud, I received my drum.........It is amazing. You have done a  truly great  job on this drum.  It is so nice I dont want to  play it.  Thank you! It looks and sounds fantastic and far exceeds my  expectations!

 Hi Bud,

       The bubinga snare arrived today.  It sounds as beautiful as it looks! I should have asked for a little red stain as the color is more brown than I expected, but I'm not complaining.   it is perhaps the most sensitive and responsive snare I've every had the pleasure of playing.
You should be justifiably proud.
