The story
ASBA Metal - 1

In the early 70s, Christian Vander, the founder and drummer of the notorious French band Magma, wanted a sound that was louder, sharper and more metallic. So he asked Marc Périn, Alfred Boudard's nephew, who was in charge of the brand’s artist relations, for something different and unusual. With stainless steel sheets purchased in the suburbs of Paris, they designed and created “the metal kit”.

Christian, impatient to test this unique drum kit, literally jumped into the delivery truck and started to play in it!
The one of a kind metal kit was a groundbreaking innovation of this era. Many drummers, both in Jazz and Rock from Europe to the west coast of the USA had the chance to play on this kit.

Today, we are proud to bring this iconic and legendary METAL kit back into the ASBA collection.







Bruno Pimienta

Pro drummer

“What do I like best about ASBA? Very honestly, I like everything: the manufacturing quality, the meticulous finishes, the rhodoïd. And the sound, you might say? Wow! Very, very heavy! Very high quality, as comfortable on stage as in the studio... “

Caroline Geryl

Professional drummer (Pomme, Naïve newbeaters...)

“I wanted an instrument that would be the mirror of my playing in its authenticity, precision and warmth. 

And beyond answering it, she sublimates it. We’ re unlimited creatively and technically. You can go there with one’s eyes closed, it’s really the bomb!!!! "

Sebastien Robin

Drum teacher & Youtuber

“I recommend this brand obviously to all professionals, but also to every drummer who is starting to have a little experience with the instrument and who dreams of finding his own sound!  ASBA is the easiness to sneak between all styles of music, in one turn of the key... It sounds terrible !”
