INDeDrum Lab – Crafting a Better Drum by Building on a Legend

Show Notes

How do you make Trey Gray, the drummer from Faith Hill, Brooks & Dunn, Reba McEntire and Jewel, drop his jaw? All it takes is three simple steps:

  1. Work for a legendary drum brand for 5 years
  2. Observe and see where their process could stand to make improvements
  3. Start your own drum brand to make those changes happen

Easy right? 🙂

Independent Drum Lab, or INDeDrum Lab, was started exactly in that way three years ago. Using his engineering background and his experience while working with one of the most legendary drum brands in existence, founder Josh Allen was able to bring together a better way of designing and constructing drums, resulting in a more superior sound, higher quality materials and happier drummers.
