Acoutin Custom

A snare drum is maybe the most important tool for a drummer. We present you with superb handmade instruments from California – boutique snare drums made by Cooper Acoutin.

Acoutin Custom is the result of the love for drums and an idea for what drums should be…. This company is based upon ideas, visuals and a history of what the integrity of quality and craftsmanship in drums should live up to. Acoutin Custom is focused around not the trends in the world of drums, but the structure and construction of each single drum that gives it it’s personal characteristics tonally and the modifications put in place by the craftsman that strengthen these characteristics and take the drum from a composition of different materials to a personally designed and handcrafted piece of art.


Acoutin Custom drums are a patented shell design allowing wood edges to detach and interlock with their metal center. This proprietary shell design combines Solid Steam-bent and Stave wooden edges with rolled or woven metal center to produce  a drum that is extremely articulate and sensitive. These drums are unique and unmistakable in their defined characteristics with each shell providing its own distinct balance of warmth, responsiveness and clarity.

Wood edges are available in almost 20 species from Black Walnut to Bubinga with metal centers of Stainless Steel, Bronze, Copper, and Brass. 13″ and 14″ shells are available in depths of 5.5″, 6.5″ and 8″.
