Percussion Ordnance: Military Grade Drums & Hardware

 I NEED YOUR SUPPORT TO MAKE THIS A REALITY!

SEE BELOW...

WHO ARE WE?

My name is Gabriel Martinez and I am a Mechanical Engineer with a bachelors in engineering from LSU. 

HISTORY:

 In High School I received my first drum set and immediately became obsessed. Years later, I sold my kit in order to pay for my last year of college.

            After much engineering experience, I found myself on the island of Puerto Rico helping rebuild post-hurricane Maria. Inspired by the island that I fell in love with, I decided to pursue my passion of playing the drums once again.

            This time, I decided to design my drums from the ground up. I combined my love for playing the drums and my engineering knowledge to design drum parts using the precise tolerances, the finest materials and the best manufacturing processes. I am starting with the drum hoops for a 14" 10 lug snare and a drum tuning key to swap out the hoops.

STATUS:

The prototyping stage is complete and several fully functional production samples have been tested extensively on several snares for consistent fitment and sound. Extensive documentation is present on percussionordnance.com and all of our social media outreach.

Other requirements for fulfillment have been arranged including the following:

-Derived budget necessary to fulfill the rewards including budget for further product prototype development

-Manufacturing capacity for volume sales

-Designed packaging for shipment

-Logistics for shipping orders, including lead time from machine shop: 12 weeks

PRODUCT FEATURES:

GI-14S-10L: 14" 10 LUG SNARE DRUM HOOPS

SIZE: 14" 10 LUG SNARE DRUM HOOP SET
MATERIAL: 6061 T6 ALUMINUM
FINISH: ANODIZED FINISH WITH LASER ETCHED LOGO & SERIAL NUMBER. WILL NEVER RUST.
ABOUT: THE GENERAL ISSUE 14" SNARE DRUM HOOP SET UTILIZES AIRCRAFT GRADE ALUMINUM AND TOLERANCES.
 

  • PROPRIETARY RIM SHOT FLANGE PROVIDES MORE CONTACT AREA RESULTING IN AN ENHANCED RIM SHOT SOUND.
  • THE DESIGN DAMPENS UNWANTED OVERTONES AND RESONANCES.
  • GREATLY ENHANCES THE SOUND OF THE SHELL.

DTK SS: DRUM TUNING KEY STAINLESS STEEL 

SIZE: 2.5" DRUM TUNING KEY
MATERIAL: 17-4 SS TOOL STEEL
FINISH: MACHINE FINISH WITH LASER ETCHED LOGO
ABOUT: THIS DRUM TUNING KEY IS A 3D MACHINED BEAUTY WITH SO MANY HOLES YOU CAN MOUNT IT OR SECURE IT TO ANYTHING.
 

  • THE 17-4 SS IS A ONE TIME INVESTMENT FOR A TOOL THAT FEELS SUBSTANTIAL IN THE HAND. 
  • THE ERGONOMICS PROVIDE A CONFIDENT GRIP AND ENABLES PLENTY OF TORQUE.

Risks and challenges

My biggest cause for concern is manufacturing delays or shipment delays. I do not foresee that as a problem since I am dealing with a top tier machine shop that specializes in consumer products. However, if delays do arise I have a relationship with several other manufacturers and mills that could place my products into their production cycle in order to maintain the 12 week lead time.
Budget and pricing has been sorted and I do not foresee any fiscal problems with this project.
