The HIT KIT Story

Our story starts several decades ago on a river bank in Idaho. Founder Jay Vee and friends floated western rivers for many years. Together they rafted and camped. Guitars were easy to bring along but they needed rhythm. Jay’s friend, Mark, assembled a “river drum kit.” Years later, when Jay washed ashore on California’s Central Coast, he started tinkering with Mark’s idea to develop a viable product to help anyone carry his/her rhythm anywhere. Thus, the HIT KIT Drum Co. May your rhythm roll far and wide.


The HIT KIT is an oxymoron; a portable drum set.

The HIT KIT is a trap-set without the trappings of size, weight, and complexity that sometimes hinder and, worse, sometimes prevent the musical contributions only a drum kit can provide.

Young people with a passion for music and percussion need the HIT KIT to sound good, play naturally (ergonomics), pack tight, and travel easily.
