We couldn’t believe it either when we came across them at NAMM in 2012, where the MyDentity took the award for Best in Show. Custom drum sets have never been this affordable, and most manufacturers usually take at least six months to deliver. We searched everywhere for “the catch”, but we never found one. Every MyDentity we’ve ordered has been a high quality set of drums through and through, with no flaws or obvious shortcuts taken. The design process itself is fun and easy and takes about 10 minutes, just go to their site to get started at From there you’ll be able to interactively build and design the kit of your dreams, which we have to tell you is a lot of fun. Then you just save the design, tell us your unique MyDentity code, and within a month you’ll be playing your own quality custom kit.
