Joe Murawski the owner of "Smith Custom Drums" is 1 of the finest people to work with, & his staff of only 3 others(Warren-Rob & Arnie all have specialities from woodworking, metal working & design & painting ect.!!)Joe is a professional drummer himself. Some endorsee's are listed on their site. :D
