This exceptional drum set is dedicated to lovers of unique and exclusive kits. This model alone represents a real world premiere, because never before has a great star of French Haute Couture collaborated with a musical instrument manufacturer.
Produced in only 27 copies, in reference to the year our brand was created, this true "Art Drum" was born from our partnership with the famous fashion designer Jean-Charles de Castelbajac. It is directly inspired by the iconic "Bleu Blanc Rouge" model created in a single copy in 1970 for René Guérin, drummer of the famous Martin Circus band.
This exceptional drum set signed JCC+ ASBA embodies the excellence of French know-how, pop culture and the power of music in our lives, like the creations of Jean-Charles de Castelbajac for Beyoncé, Lady Gaga, Vanessa Paradis, Katy Perry, Jacno, Kraftwerk and Kanye West...
Jean-Charles de Castelbajac has always been inspired by Rock and Roll, music is at the very heart of his inspiration. Friendships or collaborations with the New York Dolls, Telephone, Heldon, Malcolm McLaren, Sparks, Elli and Jacno and many others today, have punctuated his life. It was therefore logical that he wanted to rethink instruments. Collaboration with ASBA is natural. Graphic design, rhythm, colour and sound, Jean-Charles de Castelbajac has rethought the ASBA drum kit between heraldism and Bauhaus. The primary colours and the omnipresence of black are the signature. JCC+ wants to pay tribute to the mythical drummers who have rythmed his life: John Bonham, Ginger Baker, Jim McCarty and Ron Bushy.
