George Harrison Way was a drumming pioneer from Boston, studying drums with the legendary George B. Stone. The history is vast from this fine man who created such things as 'The Chinese Sneeze', which is now known the world over as the China cymbal from all the brands such as Zildjian, Istanbul Mehmet, Sabian, Paiste and more. The history goes on and on even at the age of 71 he was hired by the legendary Rogers brand of drums. So where do we come into all of this piece of history? Well a dedicated and respected man by the name of Mr Ronn Dunnett continues George's legacy to this day making the finest snare drums and drum kits and we are honoured to be given this wonderful brand exclusively here in the UK.
Ronn Dunnett started making working with drums in 1978 and now is the most influential custom drumsmith alive, due to the fact that the components he produces end up on so many other manufacturers' drums. He creates some of the most popular and beautiful drums. By 1994 Ron has designed, developed and built several prototypes based on his own concepts, simple innovation and what he felt was lacking from existing products at that time. This includes the creation of the very well known titanium drum which also was the first titanium drum ever created. The result of all that work resulted in the perfection of Titanium and Stainless Steel snare drums which nowadays are played and used by some of the most influential drummers, producers and studio engineers. Dunnett Classic drums don't sound so good by chance. The sound has been meticulously engineered. Ronn has put years into research & development, but even that work has to come from an idea. Dunnett Classic Drums are crafted to the finest details and each drum can be described in four words: Architecture, Innovation, Value and Truth.
