Cooperman Liberty Model Rope Tension Snare and Bass Drums are the culmination of over 55 years experience in design and craftsmanship.  We hand select trees to be dimension cut and bent at our Vermont sawmill to form our solid one ply shells and counterhoops.  Each drum is then handcrafted to order, as we select and adjust each design element with your input to produce your custom Cooperman drum – an instrument fully in command from the muster field to the modern percussion ensemble to the symphony hall.

Our Liberty Model Rope Tension Drums are custom made to order in a wide selection of sizes, colors, and hardware options.  Please go to our main website at for details, or contact us to receive our full catalog by email. From time to time our drum builders are inspired to build a showroom sample, or to prototype a drum with a special material or finish or construction detail.  Used drums, refurbished drums, and shop seconds may also be available.   Some of these drums may be listed here at the "Rope tension Drums - Specials and Ready-To-Ship" section of this store, and some are posted at our main website in a "specials" section.
