Our Fife Shop uses only the finest instrument grade grenadilla, rosewood and cocobolo
to handcraft professional model Cooperman fifes, and brings the same level of commitment
to quality to our student models in persimmon and FDA approved plastic. Traditional and
Specialty Fife groups include our popular corp fifes as well as our historically accurate instruments;
the Concert Fifes group includes modern Cooperman and McDonagh models. A selection of books
and music for field musicians as well as fifers equipment and supplies are included in this section.

Cooperman Rope Tension Snare and Bass Drums are the culmination of over 50 years
experience in design and craftsmanship. We hand select trees to be dimension cut and
bent at our Vermont sawmill to form our solid one ply shells and counterhoops. Each
drum is then handcrafted to order, as we select and adjust each design element with
your input to produce your custom Cooperman drum – an instrument fully in command
from the muster field to the modern percussion ensemble to the symphony hall.

Turned of the finest native and exotic hardwoods here at our Vermont shop, Cooperman
sticks and mallets have impressed demanding percussionists worldwide for over 50 years
with outstanding quality, skilled craftsmanship, and expert design. Our pairs are hand finished,
rolled, and precision matched for weight and pitch.
