Who we are

Rhythm House Drums is a smaller company in Matthews, North Carolina, just outside of Charlotte. We specialize in ethnic hand drums as well as modern and custom drums, and building community through rhythm. We strive to bring you the best in quality and service. Rhythm House Drums offers a way to define yourself through your music, the one universal language. Listen to your heart, find your rhythm, and enjoy the journey.

Our staved drums are built at home by the owner/drum smith, Kevin Brown, and the solid djembes imported from various West African countries. We sell our instruments at drum shows, open drum circles, locally around Charlotte, Matthews, Pineville, Fort Mill, Waxhaw, Monroe, Ballantyne, Rock Hill, Weddington, and Mecklenburg Union County and of course, here on the net. We produce and import top quality drums of all types and sizes. African Djembe drums, Professional staved and solid Dunun drums, and Custom Ashiko and Ngoma drums are among the most common West African drums. We also build PowWow drums and Frame drums. If you are looking for a specific drum or a more customized drum write us, and I'm sure we can work something out. We cover everything from drum repair to custom drum builds, to imported drums from Mali to Guinea to the Ivory Coast.

Whether our drums are imported or built in our shop, we guarantee that the quality and service you receive will be exceptional. We are continually improving on our already excellent design and construction techniques. Our drums are beautifully crafted, great sounding drums. We believe that everyone who wants a drum should have one!

Our vision at Rhythm House Drums is to provide a gateway into a community that has inspired us to be who we are. We believe that information and knowledge should be shared so that we can grow as a society. Of course our specialty is hand drums, particularly those from West Africa such as the djembe, djun-djun, Ngoma or Ashiko, which are the very ones that awakened us to the beauty of drumming. We build and import top quality hand drums, from dununs to djembe to ashiko and even native american styled powwow drums. Each drum is built by hand, whether imported or built in house, and is carefully treated as well as respected while being constructed. Rhythm House Drums offers a lot of custom options for your hand drum. Custom is what we do, so please contact us if you are looking for something specific or something away from the mainstream. We love our drums and know you will as well!

Through drumming and sharing knowledge we hope to build a community based on friendships, openness, and rhythm. We hope to bring together and to become unified in spirit and rhythm throughout the world. By making top quality hand drums, inspiring and participating at various drumming events and circles, spreading knowledge to everyone we meet and hopefully now through the internet, we hope to help make this dream a reality.
