We were extremely honored to be featured in Modern Drummer's online magazine on September 29th. We hope to be in a print edition in early 2015.
On December 23rd, Mike and Adam visited Mike's old high school to meet with the band department. The 1710 team built and donated three custom snare drums to the school. The students and faculty were amazing people...
Stay tuned for news and updates from the 1710 team
We are auctioning this custom snare drum in support of our dear friend, John Marshall, who is battling ALS. All proceeds will go to John and his family to help pay for in-home care. The 14x6" sapele mahogany shell includes a wood-burned image honoring John that was designed by our friends at Impressions of Expressions tattoo. Please go to http://www.ebay.com/itm/-/111744661652? and place your bid. We love you John and hope we can help bring you home.
We are extremely proud to announce that we were voted one of the top Custom Drum Companies in this month's DRUM! Magazine Readers Poll...the "Drummies!" In addition to being listed as a runner-up, the magazine featured 1710 in their "Meet Your Maker" article. These are some shots from the magazine. Over 10,000 people voted and we are honored to represent our fellow drum builders and be mentioned with these great companies. None of this would be possible without the support of family, friends and partners. Thank you to the 1710 team who put their heart and soul into every drum. Thank you to our amazing drummers and bands who melt faces every day. Thank you to our crazy talented artists who make our drums unique for every customer. Thank you to our suppliers and partners. And most of all, thank you to the 12,000 people who follow us online and the hard core fans who voted. This is just the beginning...so buckle up!
