It’s all about the wood
90% of the wood used in Lignum Drums is cut by me in the local areas and then sent to the mill for cutting into planks. It is very important that wood should then be allowed to dry naturally so that it becomes properly seasoned before use. Because I am involved with the wood from the very start, I feel that my soul is spriritually connected with each drum I make.
Fresh sawn Birch logs, cut in my own village…. stored in the garden for a full natural and slow drying proces
Lignum Drums Stave Construction
FROM 10″ TO 26″
I have improved on the standard approach to stave constructions by developing my own unique techniques to further enhance durability and tone ; including a special high-precision joint that means each stave is glued INTO, not just butted up against the neighbouring stave.
Yes, this is a more labour intensive, but it results in a much stronger and better sounding shell with real road-proof durability.
- it makes the shell a lot more solid and resonant at the maximum
- 10 year Lignum Drums warranty on all joint constructions
- the shell will be a lot more road proof
Handmade bass hoops
No..Lignum Drums never use generic prefactory made bass hoops !
Custom kits are always finished with hoops handmade from the same log as the drumkit.
Unique stainless steel Lignum lugs
After using 20 years of making brass lugs with chrome plating I did an important change.
All custom snares and kits now are finished with stainless steel mirror gloss polished lugs
