Slow and Steady | TreeHouse Custom Drums

1 minute read

Founded by Derek Sharp (D#), TreeHouse Custom Drums has been producing world-class professional instruments straight out of the Drumgeon in Topeka, Kansas, since 2000. Part of the secret of TreeHouse Drums’ solid growth has been patience and attention to detail. Instead of taking out a huge bank loan and feeling the pressure of immediate return and growth, Derek was willing to start small and grow very slowly.

Now in most U.S. states and several countries on 5 continents around the world, TreeHouse Custom Drums has developed into a stable and consistent supplier of hand-made drums. From touring Broadway drummers to students, colleges to Renaissance Festival performers, decorators to churches, TreeHouse drums show up in lots of places. You can always tell it’s a real TreeHouse by looking in the drum to see that drum’s unique serial number and Derek’s signature which includes the “D#.”

Sounds of the Soul is a Flatland arts series produced by G10 Creative. Watch for digital shorts publishing online Tuesday and Thursdays through March 14, then tune in at 7:30 p.m. March 21 on KCPT for the full 30-minute documentary.
