“Not all drums are the same”
This guiding principle has been the driving force for our high quality standards since the creation of our first prototype.
Within a multi-year development process, each drum was tested and constantly optimized from the choice of material to the perfect design and shape with renowned musicians and professors.
The result is an outstanding sound experience, which leads to a new dimension in the world of drumming based on profound knowhow.
Manufactured purely by hand, the free oscillating/swinging drums made of non-ferrous metal, such as brass or copper, stand out with an impressing sound transmission and tone development without losing any kind of power.
Whether used in the studio or live – in each (room) situation the presence of this particular drum impresses with a warm, defined character.
The innovative concept of a living design makes the difference to alternative drums not only audible but, due to the special sound spectrum, unique and distinctive.
Schagerl Drums was founded in 2010 by Markus Lechner and Robert Schagerl in the workshop of Schagerl Music – home of brass instruments.
Because of less space for required machines at Schagerl Music, Markus Lechner decided to build a separate and specialized drum factory to start the business of making Schagerl Drums.
In 2012, after two years further development, based on the profound knowhow of making brass instruments, the first snare drum model “Antares” was born.
“Play different. Think brass.”
Meanwhile we can offer a wide range of in-house manufactured snare drums, orchestral drums, drum sets and concert toms.
