After eyeballing drum carders for a couple months, I decided to buy one from Brother Drum Carder. Mainly because of the price but also because of the high tpi they offer, since I am planning to work mostly with Alpaca and Silk. Well, I got mine just a few days ago and I am more than happy with it! The drum carder is very well built and the batt it produces is a dream to spin with. But, I also want to point out the fantastic communication and the lightning fast shipment. It was a true pleasure to deal with Brother Drum Carder for me and I highly recommend them. If you are looking for an affordable, high quality drum carder go there and you’ll get outstanding good customer service as well!
I just purchased the new motorized
version which has a doffer and a packing brush, is finished and is a
carding dream! I have been doing some custom carding and spinning of
prized Newfoundland (Chiengora) difficult challenge. Hardest part
was getting it carded and blended correctly. My shoulder and arm was
nearly out of use from cranking my old carder! Now, my batts are
beautifully blended with only 2 passes and it spins like a dream. I
would not hesitate to purchase this motorized carder. If you have
thought about a motorized carder, this one is for you. Relatively
inexpensive and made of beautiful oak with a lovely finish to it. Is
there anything I don’t like about it? NO!
Have a great day!
I am in spinner's heaven!
First off. I ordered your drum carder on Saturday and it arrived
Monday afternoon. Sadly, I missed Barb, the post lady and so had to
wait until morning to pick it up at the Post Office. I missed her by
minutes! I could have been fondling it all Monday evening had I not
been off somewhere, doing something when Barb came!
Come 9:00 a.m. on the tick Tuesday morning, had your carder in my
grippers! By noon, the back half of a Shetland fleece I've been slowly
carding with paddles, was completely carded and in rolls! I just can't
believe how much wool can be carded in one fell swoop! Amazing!
The carder is made very nicely, and the drums adjust so easily; making
for a very happy camper!
I am so happy with my carder!
Especially the interchangeable drums that are easy to change!
Fast shipping! I received my carder within 3 days of placing my order.
Got the carder today! I LOVE it. It's perfect, and just what I wanted.
Very well put together and works great.
I received the drum carder and have found it easy to use. I will pass
your website and name along to my friends. Thanks,
I have not found a carder even close to this quality and price! Thank
you so much for the help! I love my carder!
I was surprised at the quality and size of the carder! Thank you so
much for the excellent service!
I love my Carder soo much!!! Thank all of you wonderful people for creating it!!!
I purchased a Brother drum carder on
December 7th. It was shipped out the very next day. However, the post
office "misplaced" my package. It was never scanned any farther than
the local post office. We waited until the predicted delivery date
came and went. Now worried, I contacted Gabriel, who was very helpful
and reassuring. Time passed and still nothing from the post office. It
was the Christmas season and delays could be expected is what the post
office told me. On December 21st, I called Grace in a panic as this
was my mother-in-law's only gift. Even though they had absolutely no
idea about what type of person I am, they trusted me enough to send me
another drum carder, at no charge to me other than the overnight
shipping. However, I did not have access to a computer to send
shipping before that day's mail went out. But they sent my package
anyway, yet again placing their trust in me that I would follow thru
with payment. No other company out there would trust a complete
stranger on their word that they had not received the item much less
send the another without having full payment before hand. The other
drum carder did finally show up, after the first of the year. We sent
it back to Gabriel and Grace. We were willing to pay the return
shipping to get them their item back but they spoke with their local
post office and got them to waive the return shipping for the delay.
As to the quality of the carder, it is wonderful. Amazing price as
well. A Brother drum carder will meet the same high standards of
quality and craftsmanship as all the other carders that are double and
even triple the price.
