Charlie Harrington Award-Winning Acclaimed Artist, Charlie Harrington, has signed with Tempus Drums. Charlie, an in demand session player with a well-established reputation as a first call drummer, is proud to endorse the fine quality products offered by Tempus Drums.

Tempus Drums started out in 1973 as Milestone Drums in Vancouver, Canada, at the height of the synthetic shell craze of the early '70s. Paul Mason acquired the company and renamed it Tempus in 1985.

Tempus offers snares and complete kits to order in CarbonKevlar, Fibreglass, Hemp, and CarbonFibre. It has its own line of exclusive signature lugs, both in the original/classic and newer mini-lug options and all are available in either chrome or black. The snare drum strainer is Dunnett's clever R-class which features a throw-off lever you can swivel through 180 degrees.
