Funky Upbeat Designs started one evening in August 2018 literally out of the blue, while envisioning the possibilities of upcycling various musical instruments. We are a husband and wife team, with backgrounds in carpentry, renovations and handyman work, customer service, sales, creativity and of course playing drums. At that moment, we decided it was time to try something a little different.
We purchased one drum kit, did a lot of modifications, posted them to social media, asked opinions of family and friends and the response and feedback was unbelievable!
Each design created is handcrafted, unique and one of a kind. We aim to use reclaimed, upcycled and eco-friendly materials where possible in all of our designs. We also offer custom orders and design options for our clients. Although the initial plan was to start small and grow from there, it has turned out to be much more than we ever anticipated.
