Guru Drumworks is driven with passion by partners Dean Price & Andy Crosby.
Dean is the founder of Guru Drumworks. He has been crafting solid shell drums since 2003, & is widely acknowledged as one of the best shell builders in the world today. Prior to that, he applied his skills to cabinet making and advanced carpentry. There's wood in his blood!
Andy is an engineering designer by trade, & has a long history of successfully launching innovative products onto the world market. He's an innovator, with a strong eye towards form & function, plus placing quality where it really makes a difference.
Dean & Andy started their association jointly working on the prototype thin shell mahogany stave kit. From that, Origin series was born. A true collaboration of skills to produce the finest drums ever created. Both Dean & Andy are experienced drummers too, & develop Guru drums according to real world performance advantages.
Based in the north east of England, Guru Drumworks is proud to say we manufacture all our products in house, and apply "made in England" with integrity & pride. Even our latest hardware is bespoke crafted in the UK. We believe in the quality advantages of local manufacture, & consider the increase in cost to be a long term investment worth making, for both us & our customers.
