Keplinger

Keplinger

Keplinger Drums are responsible for creating beautifully handcrafted snare drums, cymbals, and percussion made out of a variety of metals, mainly stainless steel. The company was started by Gregg Keplinger, a drummer himself. Upon finding a 1930's Ludwig steel snare with an unparalleled tone and a gigantic price to match, Gregg Keplinger responded with improvisation and innovation. By sourcing stainless steel from an industrial pipe manufacturer, Gregg went on to build the first of many custom snare drums. This started his vision for Keplinger Drums; hefty metal-shell snares and percussion with industrial personality.

Keplinger has worked closely in-studio and on stage with Matt Cameron during Soundgarden's "Superunknown" glory days. He has also worked with Elvin Jones, Pearl Jam and Our Lady Peace, among others. Keplinger painstakingly works to fine tune and customize each item that he makes. No two pieces will ever be the same. Gregg's instruments are truly for players, by a player. Handcrafted, solid, and dynamic- that is what Keplinger represents.
