Drum shells are the foundation of any drum kit. Precision Drum Company offers only the highest quality drum shells and has been a Keller shell distributor for many years. We stock the Keller VSS maple shells in 5, 6, 8, and 10 ply and can provide Vintage Mahogany, Vintage Maple, and Birch shells upon request.

Acrylic drum shells - Manufactured by RCI International, hardened acrylic polymer engineered by RCI and made in the USA .
All seams are acrylic welded and sealed (Engineered at RCI International Patent Pending). These shells do not have a support tab or thin strip of plastic holding the seam together. The RCI Starlite shells stand second to none due to the fact they are made for the percussion industry. RCI Starlite shells (Solid transparent colors, or Pattern colors) are "acrylic welded" at the seams thus making them air and water proof.

We offer bearing edge and hole drilling services which may be applied to acrylic shells.
