ABOUT PHOENIX DRUM COMPANY AND ABOUT OUR CONCEPT:

We are the drummers who wanted an instrument designed for better sound combined with outstanding aesthetic design. We believe that “A drum set is the body where the soul of the drummer resides and it deserves a luxury estate, not a fixer upper.”

First we conquered sound quality.

After many years of sheer frustration dealing with annoying overtones, ringing, clanking and etc of the drums during performance, Phoenix Drum Company (PDC) created and “Patented PDC Ghost Port®” tube.

“Patented PDC Ghost Port®” tube

The “Patented PDC Ghost Port®” resolves the fundamental problem that all drummers, studio engineers and live venue sound engineers contend with.
The “Patented PDC Ghost Port®” virtually eliminates all unwanted ringing and overtones.
All PDC drums are manufactured with “Patented PDC Ghost Port®”, so If you own a set, feel free to leave your duck tape at home. The result is a stellar sounding drum with ample headroom that eliminates the need for proverbial Band Aid’s such as Moon Gels, gels, mylar rings, muffler felts, duck tape, etc.

We focused on the quality of the parts, materials and components used in building the instruments. We wanted materials and execution that enhanced the performance and longevity of our instruments. We took an instrument apart and reconsidered, reconfigured and improved each part and finish, material and assembly process to achieve results.

For example, PDC wood drum shells are made from North American rock hard maple and birch.
How are PDC shells better? These shells have a patented VSS technology which enhances the integrity and strength of the drums. They deliver wider tonal ranges, increasing resonant frequencies and adding noticeable volume and sound projection.

Phoenix Drum Company (PDC) uses only American wood drum shells from a company known to manufacture some of the best quality, patented drum shells in the industry for over 50 years.
Innovate! Phoenix Drum Company (PDC) drums are the only drums with “Patented PDC Ghost Port®” installed and the NEW “Patented PDC Machine Air-Craft Aluminum Tube Lugs®”,

Our Drums are truly masterpieces of Art with the added bonus of great sound!
