Custom Shop - Penguin Series

Custom Shop - Penguin Series

Available in virtually any depth and the following diameters:

  • Snares: 10″ – 14″
  • Toms: 8″ – 18″
  • Basses: 16″ – 22″
  • Cocktail drums: 12”-18”
  • Chrome, black chrome or wood hoops available on all drums
  • Available in a wide variety of stain colors and some exotic wood veneers (inquire)
  • Re-engineered ISIS II (internal suspension and isolation system) on all toms

  • Penguin drums are handcrafted (really!) using quality European birch. With the Maxi-Shells™ we’ve dramatically increased the interior volume while actually reducing the overall size and weight (compared to conventional drums). You get punchy, chest-thumping kicks; fat, resonating toms; and warm, full-spectrum snares.

    Our Quickstand™ mounting system offers unparalleled convenience and flexibility. Never fear that postage-stamp sized stage — up to six drums and up to four cymbals mount on one sturdy stand. Break it down, pack it up and you’ll be chatting up the fans before the guitar player can even lug his Twin off stage.

About Whitney Drums

compact drums, BIG SOUND.

As a bandleader and soundman I would arrive early at a gig to set up and the drummer would already be there. He would load in a multitude of heavy cases and bags, and then crowd my valuable stage space with a jumbled array of drums and stands. For both of our sakes I set out to simplify his job.
