About Longo Custom Drums
Neil Longo, owner / founder, a drummer since early age started making his own custom solid drums in the early 90\'s. Bent, using equipment he built himself from his own design, Neil fashioned his truly custom solid drums on traditions passed down from an entire generation of carpenters. His father, and his father before him both impressed a solid foundation of craftsmanship onto Neil. A foundation which translated beautifully into the finely crafted drums Longo Drums now sells.
Neil\'s expertise with various types of wood combined with his keen understanding of pitch and sound can be seen not only in the beautiful appearance of these stunning drums but also in their resonance Longo Drums produce a pure, clean sound, each one set to pitch by hand. Since only the most quality parts are used, right down to Neil\'s hand-picked and prepared woods, the build of the drum remains a sight to be seen - and heard.
With all of this attention to detail and hand craftsmanship you might expect that Longo Drums are meant only for true professionals. The truth is, although a seasoned professional will appreciate the results of Neil\'s masterful work, Longo Drums are priced in a very affordable range, so any serious hobbyist or amature drummer can experience the thrill of playing on a professionally hand-crafted drum.
