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.







Brian Irving

Pro drummer and collector

“It was the quality of the finish that hooked me, but it was the quality of the workmanship and the incredible sound 

that finally convinced me! I’m very happy to have found the authenticity of the original ASBA, one of my first drums 40 years ago! My new one is with me on all my projects now”

Fabien Tournier

Pro drummer

“I recommend the ASBA brand to everyone because the drums are super versatile, they sound as good for Rock, Jazz, Hip-hop, pop ... Moreover they are very easy to adjust ! "

Jean Prat

Producer, composer, drummer of The Voice (Belgium)

“I really like the look, the finishes; the shells, I think they’re very beautiful... The easiness of tuning in all contexts, either on stage, in the studio, on TV... They are versatile drums, which can really fit into any musical style”
