The partnership of an Australian drum-maker and a Taiwanese manufacturer produces cracking results The drums that have been created bear a close resemblance to kosher Brady drums. However, they aren't copies of Brady drums made by Dixon – they are Dixon drums that have been designed by Chris Brady.
