In many types of musical genres, drums act as the backbone to the music. However, when starting a business, financing is the backbone of business formation. Start-up financing is what one entrepreneur is now looking for in his plan to start a new custom drum-making company. The 60-year-old entrepreneur has already started operating in a modest shop space in Michigan and is currently in the business planning process to expand the company.
The man first started making custom drums about 37 years ago and is now working on his first few orders for his new company, Sherwood Percussion Instruments. The entrepreneur began as a drummer during the 1970s and then ended up developing a drum shell made of wood. This resulted in a cleaner and richer sound from the drum compared to standard drums shelled with plywood. These custom drums are made of pie-shaped pieces which the man cuts from solid wood.
