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.

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.
