Our very own Kelly White recently took his TH kit on the road for a 3-show run with PlayDead featuring special guest David Gans. Venues included The Bottleneck in Lawrence, KS, and the Dancin' in the Streets Festival and HVAC Pub in Chicago, IL.
It's always great hearing gig stories from you, KW! Thanks for repping TreeHouse!
We are currently rehearsing Beetlejuice at New 42nd Street Studios in Manhattan. The schedule is 10am-6pm Monday through Saturday for three weeks. During that time it’s just the cast, stage managers, director, choreographer, Musical Directors and me.
There is now a solid shell Bubinga TreeHouse kit in Israel. How cool!!
I've received my drumset today the set is A M A Z I N G!! I’ve never heard drums so accurate - absolutely every drummer's sweet dream. I’m glad to be lucky enough to be the owner of this beauty!
Thank you for the kind and professional service."

Now the kiddos at Dove Mountain School in Marana, Arizona have some TreeHouse toms for their music making!
Sam is LOVING his new TreeHouse Tupan.
And we are LOVING his band, The King's Busketeers!
Here's Jason Degenhardt's set up for The Music Man at Topeka Civic Theatre. Alongside the malletSTATION, timpani, and misc percussion, his set up features all TreeHouse: a 7x10 mounted tom, 14x14 floor tom, and 14x20 bass in plied maple, a 6½x14 solid 1-ply maple snare drum, and a 10x14 mahogany/poplar/mahogany field snare worthy of ALL 76 of those trombones!
It's pretty cool seeing Danny Young and his TreeHouse Drums backing Brandy Clark on The Ellen Show.
Check it out!
"The drum just arrived and it's the most beautiful thing I've ever seen, well, next to my amazing wife, naturally. The finish and the logo are inspiring. As I was opening the box, my thought was, this is TreeHouse #1 as more will surely follow. Then I saw the package saying, "Welcome to the family." Indeed.
I have a problem: I want one snare drum to do it all at one tuning. That's a tall and unreasonable order and completely unfair to the instrument. But after several decades of playing and searching, I've found it. My new solid shell TreeHouse snare. It has presence, sensitivity, clarity, the rim shots are robust and musical, the cross-stick is clear and bright. Tuning to maximize these qualities does not reduce its centered, focused tonality and punch. Indeed, tuning for sensitivity and grace notes accentuates this power pocket ability; an outcome not found in other instruments, in my experience. The drum feels so great to play, as it provides confidence that from a whisper to a thunderclap strike that the drum can perform everything with ease with still room to breathe. It fails to choke at any dynamic level. This drum is changing the way the entire kit sounds. This reality conjures so many intriguing possibilities: What would a TreeHouse solid shell tom sound like, and, oh my, a bass drum? These are questions that I intend to answer with the help of the artisan builders of quality musical instruments at TreeHouse Drums."
Built in 2005, this gorgeous snare features 24 staves of Yellowheart and is outfitted with brass tubes and diecast hoops. She’s a real beauty (the color you see is natural!), and we’re glad we got the opportunity to give her a cleanup and photo session. 7x13; Solid Stave South American Yellowheart; shiny wax.
