Blackbird Drum Company is the choice of drum brand for many of the world’s most popular worship bands and performers. The company’s products are proudly played by artists including Dan McMurray of Hillsong, Joe Volk of Bethel Music, Luke Anderson of Elevation Worship, and even Chris Maas of Mumford & Sons.
This impressive artist roster is a testament to the quality of Blackbird Drums. The company’s fine selection of vintage-style drums are all handcrafted in California and built with utmost precision and care.
Blackbird’s ‘Vintage Series’ of drums is adored by drummers for their warm, vintage tones, largely associated with the sound of modern worship music. This series of drums features shells made of African Mahogany and North American Poplar, the same materials used in the construction of many much-loved drums of the 1950s and 60s.
Blackbird’s most popular offering is their ‘Sunday Series.’ These drums produce a warm, round, metallic tone – a classic sound, favoured by many of today’s worship drummers worldwide. The Sunday Series ‘Modern Worship’ snare drum is one of the company’s most popular products, particularly among drummers looking for the much sought after “Bethel snare sound.”
Hillsong’s Dan McMurray has been using Blackbird as his main touring and in-studio snare drums since becoming part of the Blackbird family in 2018. His Sunday Series ‘Modern Classic’ and ‘SE’ snare drums can be heard in Hillsong’s recent albums, There is More and Awake.
