What We Think

Brady drums are legendary instruments with reputations that precede them. We were absolutely ecstatic when this used Jarrah Ply Kit arrived at the shop. Jarrah is a relatively hard and dense wood; it ranks higher on the Janka Hardness scale than Hard Maple, Hickory, and even Bubinga. These physical properties give Jarrah a dark and powerful tone with an incredible volume ceiling. Chris Brady's use of this tonewood was as revolutionary as his building methods were when he started his company in the late '80's. These methods led to drums that share the tonal characteristics of solid shell drums while maintaining the stability of ply-drums. 

This particular kit is here on consignment and is in very good condition. The tension rods spin smoothly in their lugs with little difficulty, making tuning a breeze. The hardware does feature some light pitting, which can easily be polished back to like-new condition. The Halls Creek Satin finish has gently aged over ten years, leading to a subtly striking finish which allows the natural Jarrah grain to show through.

Manufacturer's Description from Brady

Brady was the only company of its kind, able to produce their own ply shells in a revolutionary method pioneered by Chris Brady in 1988. The shells are made in a dry-mould system using individual Select Grade plies of Spotted Gum wood. The drum is pressed in a straight-grain method. All timber grain runs in the same horizontal direction around the drum shell (not cross-laminated), giving them a solid-wood sound, previously unknown in a ply shell.

About Manufacturer

In a copycat world where so much is becoming the same, nothing sounds like a Brady because nothing is built like a Brady.

Chris Brady has never felt the need to duplicate traditional manufacturing techniques used by other established drum manufacturers. Instead, his creations are formed purely on the basis of how a drum should sound - all economic considerations aside.

Corporate entities tend to build drums in their own image, or as replications of what others have done. That’s why Brady has remained relatively small and fiercely independent for 30 years. It‘s essential to who we are. As one of the last autonomous well-known drum companies in the world, we can avoid the bureaucracies and red tape that strangle new and innovative ideas. Perhaps that is why - in a world of homogenized instruments - Brady drums are so remarkably, refreshingly different.

From our workshop in rural Western Australia, Chris and his team painstakingly handcraft magnificent native hardwoods into shells of unprecedented sound and quality. Here, craftsmanship is elevated to a fine art form by handcrafting shells into three different styles of construction, each in a class by itself: Ply, Block and Solid.

Chris’ formula for our diverse collection involves a timber’s grain structure, hardness, shell thickness, shell diameter, shell depth and - of course - the unique acoustical characteristics of each of our Australian hardwoods, coupled with the construction method of the shell itself.

Through the use of relatively unknown indigenous Australian timbers and Chris' progressive approach to drum design, we are proud to offer you an exquisite range of drums, created for the discerning musician to enjoy.

The Brady Drums five piece kit made from Spotted Gum with a natural satin finish was produced using a revolutionary method developed by Chris Brady in 1988 to create thin ply shells that have a solid-wood sound.

Thanks to Drummer Devin Fuller, Organist Mark Wells, and SoundPure's Jared Wofford for the sick tune.
