Welcome to Killer Snares!
Killer Snares are custom built snare drums made in Canada. Based in Calgary, Alberta, Canada - I design and build for drummers all over the world. My build philosophy is to create instruments that are second to none and that are made with meticulous detail.
My name is Kyle King. I am a drummer and have been for since 1967 (you do the math...). In that time I have played many snare drums - and other percussion instruments - while also acquiring a few shop skills and tools. I put the two together and built my first custom snare drum in 2011. My comment to myself upon initial testing was, "Wow - this is Killer"!
Killer Snares is a one man operation. Being a drummer and a builder, I take the most pride out of providing other drummers of all ages with instruments they can genuinely call their own. Each is hand-built with the components you want and a finish to suit.......and each is one of a kind!
