At ASBA, we have always paid tribute to women in the names of our musical instruments or accessories. Remember the famous Caroline pedal with worldwide success… Its name was taken directly from Caroline Humair, one of the daughters of the famous jazz drummer Daniel Humair with whom this revolutionary accessory had been developed. In the 60s, 70s and 80s, there were also Virginie, Veronique, Linda and other ranges of accessories born from collaborations with musicians of the time.
By creating the kit SUPER SIMONE, we want to pay tribute to Simone Boudard, the "S" of ASBA. The dimensions of the SUPER SIMONE comply with the standards of the brand's historical models (with international dimensions). Its shells, made of 6 horizontal plies of first choice American maple, offer exceptional musicality. Indeed, since no varnish or plastic coating constrains the resonance, the SIMONE's shells offer all the richness, subtelty and expressiveness ofmaple, without any filter.
On the maintenance side, if necessary, Simply apply a thin layer of antique wax with a soft cloth, which will give your kit its natural patina over the years.
