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!
