I am a stave drum builder, both snare drums and complete sets. I found dfd when I was first starting out, and have since ordered almost exclusively from them. Their range of brands, quality levels, and variety are awesome, and their website is (mostly) easy to use (thedropdown menus get a bit annoying, sometimes). I have found, when discussing hardware options with custom buyers, to refer them to the dfd site to select their own hardware package. Oh, there's an idea! Why not provide a few basic "all-inclusive" packages for outfitting, say, a snare drum, including heads, hoops, t-rods, lugs, wires, throw and butt plate? I would think that three options would be nice (low, medium, and high end price ranges), and might make ordering a LOT quicker! But, I digress. Anyway, I have built three complete stave sets and a number of snare drums with parts from dfd. In fact, I just received a pair of Maple bass drum hoops and an Aquarian SKII head from them five days ago to complete my latest build.
Whether you are building from raw product to finished drum, or just want to jazz up the drums you have, you won't go wrong with dfd.
P.S. Any suggestions of what to do with all those dfd bumper stickers they send with every order? I've got enough of them to wallpaper my rehearsal studio with!
