I can't say thanks enough. The drum kit you made for me has literally built my brand and signature sound. At every gig, my setup and performance generates constant attention (in a good way) and people coming up to me to check it out. I l love this thing. Cheers!

Meet the Maverick

The Maverick is the latest innovation at Pan American Drum Company that draws from the best of everything we’ve learned about making portable kick drums. This drum houses a 16” bass drum and accompanying 10” snare all housed in a brand new, vintage style wooden travel case. It still has that cool, vintage vibe to it but everything in the drum is brand new - drums, hardware, heads, and case.

The acoustics on this drum are unprecedented and will blow you away. the combination of the bass and snare produces a distinctive sound that will allow a solo performer to truly mimic the presence of a drummer. There is no need to wire this drum with a pickup and cable jack. You can play it as a pure acoustic drum or simply position an instrument mic just outside the rear access mic port.

The drum has a durable handle on the end and the case is on wheels so you can easily transport it. As with all Pan American Drum models, we’ve included pedal brackets to keep everything tight and in place.

This is the best sounding, most stable portable drum on the market and there is nothing like it available anywhere else.

Double Trouble. We offer large case, dual drum head models that can really bring the house down. This drum features a 16" full bass drum with a 10" snare. These models allow you to have the low punch of the bass drum with the sharp snap of the snare in the up beat. Add a removable sound enhancing jingle to the snare hoop and you can create an incredibly full sound. This drum is also wired for a 1/4" instrument cable so you can run it into a loop pedal, effects board and amp/PA system. Holy. Freaking. Cow.
