Current Inventory and Turnaround Time Updates

February 01, 2024

CURRENT as of April 15, 2024

We are currently deep in the heart of our busiest time of year (early-spring through mid-summer) as bands gear up for touring season.  That said, while turnaround times will *generally* fall within our standard 5 to 7 business day timeframe, there may be weeks where turnaround times are longer (7 to 10 business days).  Special-order items and add-ons (like t-shirts) can add substantially to turnaround times depending on inventory availability.  We will not update turnaround times beyond this as they fluctuate day by day and we would rather make drumheads than update webpages or respond to "where is my order?" e-mails.  That said, please plan accordingly.

As for inventory, like many other markets inventory challenges continue to plague the music products industry.  As items that are heavily dependent on the ready supply of raw materials, drums, drumheads and drum-related products are even more susceptible to fluctuations in supply.  And, since we process a relatively large volume of orders every week (100 to 150 or more), our suppliers are often not able to keep up with our high demand.

While our HeadBuilder drumhead designer is able to identify individual head types, colors and sizes as being out-of-stock, we wanted to use this article as more of an aggregate view of our current supplies for both drumheads and port protectors so our customers can better plan for their purchases.  Please do not hesitate to reach out to us if you have additional questions, but please understand that we are currently EXTREMELY busy and it may be a few days (or more) before we can respond.  This list will be updated regularly as more information and estimated delivery dates become available.

Here we will break down general drumhead and port protector supplies by manufacturer:


Generally speaking, Evans heads are not in short supply.  The only exceptions tend to be very large heads (26" or larger), very small heads (16") and specialty heads (Calftone or marching).  Even then, because both Evans and DrumART are both based in New York State, we can usually get even special-order inventory within a week or two.


We recently received a large order from Remo and all sizes, colors and types are in-stock and available for purchase.


We have also received a large order from Aquarian and, aside from select marching drumheads, all sizes, colors and types are in-stock and available for purchase.


While port protectors are a particularly moving target, we have recently received large orders from two of our suppliers so all port protector colors and sizes shown on the website are currently in-stock and available.
