Tech talk

90% of the wood used in Lignum Drums is cut by me in the local areas and then send 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.

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


Lignum lugs are solid lathe brass

Brass is considered by many to be the best material sonically, for use on drums.

The lugs are polished by hand and chromed by the top chrome company in Flanders.

The Lignum Drums high-end strainer

Although I have always used some of the finest strainers on the market, I have wanted to produce my own exclusive strainer for many years.Along with my friend Mark Van Hameren – who has spent many years making precision instruments for science indrustries – we set out to develop the ultimate snare strainer.Mark has shared my passion to design without compromise and – after 5 years and many prototypes – I’m proud to say this is the most perfect snare on the globe !This high-end strainer is now standard mounted on all Lignum custom snares.

  • cnc manufactured out of solid brass : uncoated or chrome
  • bearing action for extreme smoothness and quiet operation
  • classic forward/backward motion (still preffered by most drummers to this day)
