UK Drum Show Welcomes WTS for 2023

today24 January, 2023


The UK Drum Show are thrilled to welcome WTS to this years show, offering guests for 2023 an even wider selection of sounds and solutions.

Founded in 2015 by three industrious musicians, Welch Tuning Systems, Inc. is dedicated to helping every drummer Live In Tune®.

After years of fighting traditional drum tuning tension rods, Samuel Welch, artisan blacksmith and working drummer, knew there had to be a better solution.

The “ah-ha!” moment came late one evening after teaching aspiring drummers at his small drum school outside of Denver, Colorado. With a prototype in hand, Samuel teamed up with Patrick Auell and John Montaña to bring the WTS vision to life.

Our team spent 3 years designing and engineering the Welch Tuning System™ (WTS) and the WTS Artistry Series™ drums. Our company now holds 6 United States patents (international patents pending) for this exciting new drum tuning technology.


We believe every drummer should have the power to create, innovate, and unlock their full musical potential. That’s why we created the Welch Tuning System and the WTS Artistry Series drums.

With up to 90% less shell-mounted hardware than any other tuning system, every WTS drum produces a pure, resonant, and clear tone.

WTS look forward to partnering with the world’s leading drum manufacturers and retailers to bring you the most innovative drums and tuning hardware in the percussion industry.
