Production

As a trained carpenter my love for wood is quite natural. As a drummer i was never quite happy with my snaresound i got out of a standard product. This was the ignition to start my own first build of a snare drum.

After a couple of drummers tried out my first instrument, the feedback was quite positive.
So after a couple of years of testing, i started building drums for other drummers in 2014.

The solid stave construction is the heart and soul of our instruments. Every drumshell is entirely handmade and rounded to a perfect cylinder. Building in a classic stave construction gives you all the benefits of a natural resonating drumshell. Made from a solid piece of wood.

What kind of wood i use:
All woods used are handpicked and locally sourced in Switzerland. This guarantees a vast variety  of tonewoods which are 100% environmentally friendly. We have a couple of rare species, such as pear, apple, plum and different kinds of cherry and walnut. We use woods such as maple, beech and oak, but there is a lot more to see and hear!

We have a catalog of different standard models and specials, besides a custom corner offer. Each featured model has its own voice. All our drums come with a ten year warranty. We are very transparent about our product. This is why you can track each wood the drum is made of, with the GPS data inside the drumshell. We call this “Track your Tree“.

It is quite simple, the drum you purchased has badge inside the shell. On this little badge ( photo beneath ) there is a space called GPS, beside is a number. Type this exact number in the search space of Google Maps.
This will bring you to the actaul place where your tree was located.

Regular Infos

A normal production for a snaredrum ist about a month, depends on which type of wood and hardware.
Catalog models can be around two to six weeks depending on workload.

A drumset will take me about one to three months, depends on current workload.

My first goal is quality, i would rather spend more time producing then less.
So i can be sure, that the drum you order will be your friend for a lifetime.
