What We Think

Gregg Keplinger is an American drummer, drum maker, and drum tech from Seattle, Washington. Keplinger began making drums in the late 80's during a break in his own musical activity. During the 90's he teamed with Ayotte Drums to produce his snares, though he now produces them by himself again. Gregg handcrafts snare drums, cymbals, and percussion out of a variety of metals, mainly stainless steel. Keplinger is best known for his stainless steel drums, which are often noted for their explosive sound as well as heavy weight and shell thickness (3mm)

Manufacturer's Description from DW Drums

World-famous drum builder Gregg Keplinger has hand-crafted only 50 of these metal shells that have been carefully assembled in California by DW’s team of skilled craftsmen. Its raw beauty is true to the Keplinger tradition, while its state-of-the-art functionality can be attributed to the latest DW drum hardware advancements, such as True-Hoops, True-Tone Snare Wires, True-Pitch 50 Tuning, MAG Throw-Off System with 3P butt-plate, and DW Heads by Remo USA. Complemented with Black Nickel hardware and nestled in a deluxe padded carrying case with a signed certificate of 6 x 14” Black Iron Snare authenticity, the Black Iron snare is an extremely rare limited edition drum that’s made to be played
