Rikki Rockett announces Rockett Drum Works

Rikki Rockett, drummer for the multi-platinum rock group Poison, has announced the creation of "Rockett Drum Works", a southern California based drum manufacturing company specializing in the creation of ultra custom drum kits, snare drums and custom accessories .

Rockett Drum Works is comprised of several drum makers who build, paint, wrap, drill, hone and (most importantly, they claim), play what they build. Almost all of the staff are drummers. Rockett recruited most of the staff from his old drum concern,  the Chop Shop Drum Company, who he recently left, along with some newer staff members. They specializes in wood and acrylic custom drum kits and snare drums as well as many other materials.

Rockett first made a splash in the drumming world with custom graphic kits for the very first Poison tour in 1986. "I have always customized my drums, I was lucky enough to be one of the first three Drum Workshop endorsers. Drum Workshop set the bar for how drums were to be made in the mid eighties with their bearing edge technology and attention to detail"
