People we work with, play with, who use our drums, we admire, or just enjoy their company for a good session and a pint or two.  And a few other interesting links too…

Hurricane Airbrush Art – award winning airbrush artist, we love their work as you can see on our Custom Finishes and Uniques pages.

RAL Colour Palette – the standard (but extensive!) colour set for industrial powder coating.  The basic BODDrum uses a matte black finish of this type, but you can customise your BODdrum by choosing another colour from this range.
