What We Think

The Player Date is an attempt to not only make C&C's handmade quality available to a wider audience, but also to recreate some of the performance and character of a vintage kit using modern manufacturing techniques.


The mahogany shells combined with the full contact bearing edges provide punch and warmth. Double-ended Radio King-style beavertail lugs are centrally mounted on all of the drums and provide minimal sonic interference. The toms have exceptional definition, warmth, depth of note with minimal overtones. The bass drum comes with a plain Ambassador resonant head along with an optional felt muffle strip. Without the muffle in place the drum is breathy and boomy. Applying the felt strip behind the front head brings the decay into focus, but it remains an incredibly resonant drum.

The Player Date provides an excellent build quality with incredibly resonant and defined tones while capturing the vintage look and vibe.
