ALBANY, N.Y. - The HeadBuilder has arrived at the newly redesigned DrumART.com. And it's brought 8.5 million images with it. After today, drumhead design will never be the same.
"I am very proud of the HeadBuilder. It"s a full-blown online graphic design application. It"s an amazing tool for customization." " Jim Feck on DrumART"s new online HeadBuilder.
As part of a comprehensive website redesign, DrumART.com today launched a new online drumhead design tool known as the HeadBuilder (HTTP://WWW.DRUMART.COM/HEADBUILDER.HTML). The HeadBuilder is a complete web-based design tool for anyone designing a custom bass drumhead and provides access to a database of more than 8.5 million high-res images or allows customers to upload and use their own artwork.
"I am very proud of the HeadBuilder. It's a full-blown online graphic design application. It"s an amazing for tool for customization. It is also the key piece of what I expect will be a period of growth for DrumART," said DrumART.com founder and owner Jim Feck.
HeadBuilder features include:
"The HeadBuilder has been designed to address an unmet need in the marketplace, namely, providing real customization for self-service bass drumhead design," Feck said. "But we"re well aware that it is our sterling reputation for quality and service that have helped us become the world"s largest custom bass drumhead manufacturer. That will never change."
To that end, DrumART will maintain their existing order process that has been in place since 2004 where customers provide their materials and DrumART takes care of the rest.
