About Us

The Reapercussionist is a small music business located in the Greater St. Louis, MO area. By small business, I mean really small business – it’s essentially just me here. I am blessed on occasion with help from some very good friends when the schedules cooperate and deadlines get too close. So, what does this mean for you?

  • I have complete quality control in the construction process of your custom, hand-made percussion instrument.
  • You receive unparalleled customer service and direct advice from the drum builder (that’s me, btw).
  • You receive a final product that is tailored to your vision and is built to fit within budgetary constraints.
  • And yes, possibly a little longer wait times since these are custom builds. But it’s worth it!

In addition to custom building and refurbishing work, it has become painfully apparent that there is a growing need for top quality musical equipment and supplies to be made available by a more customer-oriented local business. That is also where The Reapercussionist comes in to play. Not only am I able to build you a wonderful custom instrument, I have the ability to fulfill your more standard equipment and instrumental needs as well. The Reapercussionist is also a full line instrumental music retailer (with an emphasis in the percussion realm, of course). There are many more items available than will be listed on this site so please feel free to contact us if you have a particular item in mind.

Regardless of what the future has in store, I sure am glad that you took the time to visit us today! I hope that you were able to find something on these pages that you found delightful and if you have any suggestions on how your experience could have been improved – please let me know via the “Contact Us” form.
