Our production methods

OUR SNARE DRUM production: 100% chrome metal strainer

Following the grand tradition of the renowned parallel strainer manufactured by Asba in the 1960s for the Super Revelation snare drum, we equip each of our snare drums with a 100% chrome metal strainer. The only small plastic parts we use are just for aesthetic purposes and do not interfere at all with operating mechanics. Particularly robust, smooth and reliable, this high-quality strainer ensures ultimate fineness in your settings as well as maximum durability. Perfect assembly precision avoids any risk of parasitic vibrations while guaranteeing greater purity for shell resonance.

OUR WOODEND SHELL MANUFACTURING: The exclusive pure sound of Asba!

Our drums are entirely designed and assembled by hand in our workshop in France. All shells are manufactured according to strict and exclusive Asba specifications, which are strongly inspired by the company’s original models, but equipped with technical improvements at the cutting edge of modern production processes: digitally controlled machines, intense quality control, raw materials traceability, eco-responsibility... We select the wood used ourselves, whether for the shells themselves, reinforcement rings, or bass drum circles. This ensures that you get the Asba sound that has made our brand famous, with the guarantee that you will never find it elsewhere, either with a custom kit or another manufacturer. Our hardware is manufactured from our original designs by the largest specialized factory in the field, which also produces parts for 80% of our famous colleagues.

Drumhead Fit Control Technology: All our shells undergo 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 vast tuning range, from the "fattest" sound to the most vocal settings. Whatever expressiveness you are looking for, ASBA shells offer you the ultimate in musical quality.

Our Rive Gauche kits: Maple/Poplar/Maple

Many of the sounds, grooves and players that inspire today's best rock drummers come from a time when this ply configuration was the rule. Although these shells are based on classic 1970s drums, the Maple/Poplar/Maple shells are of a class of their own. They have a wide adjustment range, a warm tone, a round attack and a fast decrease.

Our Revelation kits : Mahogany/Poplar/Mahogany

A reference to the classic sounds of the 1950s, the mahogany/poplar configuration is one of the warmest ones. Depth and character are more pronounced in quieter and softer musical settings, while large round sounds appear when things get a little louder.
