YC Drum Company is a full-service drum company operating out of Waterloo and Toronto. Humble beginnings in an Ottawa garage eventually led owner/operator Jordan Gauthier to relocate to Waterloo as a means of providing more attentive, centralized service to his decorated client list of drummers and producers.

Our ethos revolves around that very notion: we’re hell-bent on doing whatever it takes to provide our clients with a better experience. If it’s a rental, studio session or tour, we stop at absolutely nothing to ensure quality drums meet remarkable service. We’re constantly looking to optimize the experience between drummers and the drums they play on.

We seek to empower true musicians, producers and industry professionals with the tools they need to excel at their craft. YC Drum Company has become an undeniable staple in the Canadian music industry; we aim to continue to deliver for years to come, day in and day out.



All our products are built to spec and in the name of a drummer’s vision. Good drums come to life at the intersection of flawless sound and elegant design.


If it’s a YC backline kit for a show, a sought after vintage Ludwig snare for the studio or a hardware pack, our vast inventory makes us a one stop shop for all your needs. Delivery and pickup in Toronto.


We bring a human element paired with attentive listening and care to achieve the exact sound and feel you’re looking for, on tour or in the studio.


We’re in the business of optimizing a drum’s performance and look. We’ll do whatever it takes to make sure it constantly serves its owner as intended. If you’re looking to fix it or polish it, we can do it.
