IF YOU NEED A
COMPREHENSIVE
LIST OF DOGS AS DRUMS,
YOU'RE IN THE RIGHT PLACE 

Hello SJC family!

My name is Olivia and I joined the crew in April, doing sales and artist relations. I’m super excited to be working here as the community surrounding SJC is really amazing!

A little background on me; I am not a drummer, but I am seemingly surrounded by them. I am a singer and play in a band called Edge Petal Burn as well as a personal ~cocteau twins~ worship project. In college I studied audio engineering and have a passion for recording. I speak three different languages; all semi-poorly, sorry grandma(s)! For leisure, I spend my time collecting old things at estate sales, and fund my hobby with a small vintage business (Fern God Vintage).

Now that I’ve bored you with a classic 'all too long intro to an internet cookie recipe,’ let me present to you: 12 Dog Breeds and their Drum Counterparts. You didn’t need this information, but deep down you wanted it. 

English Bull Dog >> Double Kick Drum

Utterly galumphing.

Shiba Inu >> Jazz Style 20” Kick

Elegant, compact, tasteful, intelligent, and kind of a jerk.
Better than everyone else and knows it.

Chihuahua >> Cranked up Side Snare 

Always by your side, high pitched, kind of nervous, and needs tending to.
Cute in a silly way, but not everyone’s cup of tea.

Vizsla >>
12” Rack tom without hanging mount

Gets along with most other drums
 but a little fancy.

Dachshund >> Piccolo Snare

Ah yes, the classic badger hunting dog with an aggressive bark and a love for burrowing. You may find these little guys in the laundry pile, happily stuck in the sleeve of your sweater. Please, uh, get these dogs neutered unless you want an evil terror on your hands. For the weiner dog, you need a drum that people think is adorable and harmless but has a case of ‘little man, big bark.’ And for this reason, a piccolo snare will do. It cuts through a mix since the frequencies are generally not masked by the other drums or instruments. Also, people think they’re cute.

Jin Do >>
Cowbell
(not a drum but hear me out) 

Let me give some context for this one. My grandma (illegally) owned a Jin Do some time ago. Oops, sorry again grandma. Bbangoori (the dog) was uncontrollable. She loved eating expired ramen packets, jumping over the fence and keeping children in line. Erratic, pointed, somehow woody and can be super cool if they want to be.
I mean, come on: proof

Many police and military organizations tried to train them but it proved impossible as they’d run away to their original owners. Only the best of the best can make these sound cool.

Basset hound >> UFO

Makes a large thud, low pitched,
and gets the job done.

Pitt Bull >>
7x14 Titanium Snare

This is the opposite effect of the Dachshund. People are scared of them but they are really just big hunks of love. If you don’t train them to use their powerful jaws on strangers, they’re gentle as hell. Don’t tune this to be a monster and it will treat ya kindly. Just saying, you can use brushes instead of sticks. Also, you can get one in a shiny grey color. Put on a chain collar (or some die cast hoops), blast some Biohazard and name her Daisy.

Corgi >>
Octoban

Derpy, long, fun, but can be fierce.

German shepherd >> Ballad Snare 

Could be a cop, or a ruthless outlaw; choose your fighter. Beefy but still has that snare rattle. He is the mysterious introvert in the corner, but will bark and bite upon attack. I fully realize this sounds like some weird fanfic but you cannot deny it’s all true information. Featuring a 35mm pic of me and a ruthless outlaw.

All I can say is, at least I didn’t waste paper, just your precious time. If these correlations were so wrong they made you angry, please forward your complaints to my email. Maybe I’ll be rogue enough to post them to our insta story and out you as a hater. *kidding*

I’m now handling sales and artist relations, so if you ever need a quote on a custom kit, help ordering something, or think your band is cool, hit my line here - [email protected]


*Thanks to all for the dog suggestions.
