About this project
Bolanos Drum Co. in located in Glendale Heights, IL about 30 miles west from the great city of Chicago. Chicago is known as the birth ground for many of the famous and innovated drum companies in the world. For example: Ludwig, Slingerland, Camco, and Trick drums. Also, Chicago has one of the biggest drum store in the nation which is Vic's Drum Shop. Bolanos Drum Co is adding to that trend of innovation and integrity. How are we adding to that trend of innovation? The way that we are innovating is by using variety of woods to build drums. We use maple, birch, beach, mahogany, oak walnut and bubinga in our line up. Every drum that is build from different wood has a different tonality, resonance and character. Many companies use only maple and birch and maybe they use some other woods in there line up. That's why we are different from the major drum companies and we stand out from the small custom drum shops. Other custom drum shops are able to build an amazing looking drums but the problem is that 70% to 80% of those custom drum shop are buying their maple shells only from the same manufacturer. So in reality there is not much difference in sound from drum shop to drum shop. We have partner with other drum she'll manufacturer that are able to provide shells with our own specifications. No other drum company in the market has been able to provide drummers with so much variety of wood shells and shell sizes. We are putting our selfs in market where no one has gone before. We are covering as much of the sound spectrum as possible.
With these funds we want to expand our brand to the Classic Series snare drums and Retrolite Series snare drum and later expand it full drum sets. Also, with these funds we be able to buy more machinery so that we can do more in - house work rather than outsourcing it and that way will help reduce cost of production and bring the price down for customers and the will lead to more competitive prices.

Risks and challenges
The problem is that there is a lot of competitor out on drum making market. The only way to compete with other custom drum companies is to have a good advertising. The way this is going to happen is to put an advertising on three of the biggest drum magazines and these are: Modern Drummer Magazine, Drum Magazine and Rhythm Magazine. These three major magazines are distributed all over the world. Show casing our product on different drum shows, for example, the Chicago Drum Show in St. Charles IL and the NAMM Show in Anaheim California and many others. Also, going to different drum stores like Vic's Drum Shop, Chicago Music Exchange etc.. and present our products so they can have our product on sales floor. With these two execution along with the website (which is already running), it will help in two ways. First, it will increase sales. And second, we will get notice and recognized in the drum community as a drum company that does things bit different. The bottom line is to expose the brand as much as possible and tell customers why Bolanos Drum Co. is right choice and that we are here to help every drummer achieve their own sound by providing a variety of wood shells. Let customer understand that we are here to customize each drummer sound, expressions and style of playing and meet their individual needs.Learn about accountability on Kickstarter
