Frequently Asked Questions
What is Soundstore?
Soundstore is company that has been around since 2005 in Helsinki, Finland. We build drums and do all sorts of custom works, mainly with drums and cymbals. We import and distribute musical instruments and accessories, such as drum parts. We do repairs and maintenance. And a have a lot of fun doing it.
Are you the same Soundstore that was located in Kallio, Helsinki?
Yes, we opened a retail shop Kolmas Linja in 2005 which was later on moved to Porthaninkatu, just a few blocks away. Those were the days! We never really went away though, always continued working outside our own retail shop, focusing on what we really love to do.
Vintage or new?
Yes. Both. If you love vintage sounds, you must try old Camco shells, they sound simply amazing. That great Gretsch sound? We have plenty. Want more bass and darker punch? Try out Slingerland or Leedy &/or Ludwig. If that's not your cup of tea, we build up new drums to fullfill your search for a prefect sound. So let's face it, basically you might just need both, vintage AND new. And we will help you with the selection.
What's your deal with Aron Soitin?
We co-operate in many ways. Our workshop is located in the same building as Aron Soitin, just a floor up from the shop. Most of our products are available for sale in the Aron Soitin shop. We do also repair and maintenance work for customers of Aron Soitin. Plus we usually just hang around the shop anyway, with all the other great people inside the same building, working in different areas of music field.
