Greiner & Kilmer

In a development that is reminiscent of America’s legendary drum companies, master drummer Matt Greiner (August Burns Red) and master drum maker Kaleb Kilmer have teamed-up and announced the formation of the Greiner & Kilmer Drum Company. The new company’s first drum designs, which are said to combine Matt's drumming passion and Kaleb's drum building skills, include five unique series of handcrafted, artist-quality, made in U.S.A. snare drums that feature a selection of traditional stave and segmented (block) shells along with today’s finest components and workmanship.

"The instruments we are building are as different from other drums as they are from each other," Greiner says. "Yet every Greiner & Kilmer snare drum is designed and built to provide the sound and performance that meets the needs modern drummers— whether they’re used as everyday workhorses on the road or for special occasions in the studio."
