The story

Drumhead Fit Control Technology: All our shells undergo a rigorous control, ensuring the perfect flatness of our bearing edges. This technology guarantees a very high precision contact between the drumhead and the shell. The result is a huge tuning range, from the most "fat" sound to the most vocal settings. Whatever expressiveness you are looking for, the ASBA shells offer you the ultimate in musical quality.

Testimonials

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”

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”

Guillaume Pihet

Professional drummer, speaker at the Music Academy International (M.A.I) and around learning methods

“The new ASBA models were love at first sight for me! Top-of-the-range equipment that rhymes with elegance, finesse and excellence “à la française”. I’m a big fan of the sound, its versatility and its look... as well as its simplicity to tune it. My drums sing in a controlled resonance (bye bye handkerchiefs and moongel)... a delight. "
