Been a couple years since I had looked at their site and went there today to order two drums for my Hudy and there is a closed and thank you for your business message.

 

Sad to see them go, they built some good setups in the day, too.

David has significant health issues that led to this result. He spent many months in the hospital and in rehab last year.

Yes, every aspect of Proformance has been shut down. David's health remains precarious.

I just have the regular Hudy drum.

IIRC, $39.25.

For a diamond-coated one, also IIRC, I think HVR might carry them and Wrightway.
