Little Chute High School’s very own Logan Collison helps run his family business outside of school. Recently, I was able to talk with him about their business called Out of the Drawer Percussion.
Q: What is Out of the Drawer Percussion?
A: The drum company started by me and my father when we first picked up a dresser curb side.
Q: How many products do you offer? What kinds of products?
A: Around 26, and everything from shakers to congas, and bongos to classic cajons.
Q: How long have you been working with Out of the Drawer Percussion?
A: The company was started around four years ago, and I have been helping out ever since.
Q:Tell me a little about how you make the drums?
A: Start off by finding any old dresser or drawer and knocking it apart. Then we prepare it by cutting out the different pieces and glue them together. We finish it off by sanding and staining.
Q: Who often purchases from you?
A: All sorts of different people from world famous musicians, to your everyday person. They are very versatile drums.
Q: Where did you get the idea for this company?
A: My dad made a classic box cajon just for fun and enjoyed making it. He decided to continue to make and sell them.
Q: What is the busiest time of the year when it comes to making the drums?
A It really varies for us; I'd say during our Chicago drum show is very busy for us.
Their business is still fairly new as they are going on five years now. In order to save costs in their business, they are able to produce the drums from the comfort of their own home. Out of the Drawer Percussion makes most of their sales at various entertainment shows and takes orders through their very own website.
