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.

A name and a model straight out of the brand's old catalogues... An unspoilt heritage in tribute to the historic sound of the ASBA kits that have contributed to their reputation all over the world. Rive Gauche is all the depth and generosity of maple combined with poplar, assembled in 3 plies, underlined by beech bevelled reinforcements rings. It is also the devastating look of a hand-stained "luthier" finish, completed by a vintage satin varnish. Like all ASBA models, the bearing edges are especially designed to widen the range of expression of the shell and allow all adjustments, from the lowest to the highest pitch... Guaranteed thrill!

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”

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..."

Antoine Baschung

Drummer of the band LAST TRAIN

“I knew it was her from the first time I hit it. It’s easy to tune and the strainer is really strong. It’s saved me a lot of time on tour and it’s a real pleasure to hear it every night... “
