About daVille Drumworks

I'm Terry Thompson, the owner and craftsman at daVille Drumworks, a custom drum shop located just outside of Louisville, Kentucky. My company was born in 2006 comprising my two passions: over 35 years as both a wood worker by profession and time spent behind a drum kit. In 2008 I narrowed my focus to building the highest quality stave drum shells and hoops available, and I treat every piece I handcraft as if it were being built for myself.

Having shipped hundreds of shells to drum builders across the US and more than two dozen countries around the world, you may have already seen, heard or played a drum built with a daVille shell.  Whether you need a shell to build your first stave drum, prefer to purchase in quantities, or perhaps your drum shop is looking to produce a custom signature drum in multiple species to set your company apart from the crowd,  daVille Drumworks is here to help make that happen.
