More About Maple/Poplar

Modeled after the classics that so many musicians still desire, the Maple/Poplar combination is a modern interpretation of these vintage kits.

About the Heritage Series

A modern 6-ply that transcends the vintage formulas.

The Heritage Series is a modern 6-ply shell that transcends the classic 3-ply shell played throughout the late 40s, 50s and 60s. Our Heritage line is crafted with precision, our unique adhesives and advanced technology and utilizes the same iconic woods from the golden age of music. The result is a similar sound in a thinner shell, which allows you to recreate your favorite vintage kits in a high-grade, premium construction wood combination.

Shells of Distinction

The quality of the woods have been great, no separations and beautiful veneer. And you guys save us 3 hours by cutting a straight edge on the ply sheets.

Bill Cardwell, Owner of C&C Drum Co.

Working directly with Nordic has been essential, they perfectly fit our approach and share our values. With both look and sound, Nordic shells are at the heart of what we do.

Lane Pederson, Co-Owner of Twin Cities Drum Co.

I have been working very close with Nordic for several years now. Customer service is unmatched and the quality is top shelf. You will not find a better shell for your build.

Bill Detamore, Founder of Pork Pie Percussion

Nordic has changed the game in the high quality custom drum shell world, and their True Series off-the-shelf stock is out of control. These shells not only look beautiful but sound amazing!

Preston Parsons, Owner of Vessel Drum Co.

These shells are AMAZING! I absolutely LOVE them. I'm very excited that I am now using Nordic Shells exclusively.

Swede Grooms, Owner of Swede Custom Drums

We purchase the majority of our shell making veneers from Nordic. The quality is top notch as is the customer service. This has allowed us to take our own shell making to the highest level possible.

Christopher Carr, Owner of Bucks County Drum Co.

Our order comes in perfect every time, which is incredible considering the variety of thicknesses, combinations and species of woods they offer. Plus the quick turnaround is a breath of fresh air.
