6th of March 2018 ***** Five star review!

Click on the image to read the great review of the Hybrid and a maple snare drum in this month’s issue of Rhythm Magazine!

“... it’s not often I find myself struggling to offer a single critism...”

“... These drums do exactly what they’re supposed to, with no little flair. For the price they are a steal.”

Zebra Drums' 5-star review in Rhythm Magazine

Zebra Drums attended the first edition of the Crash It drumfair in Mannheim last weekend on the 8th of October. I received many positive reactions from enthousiastic drummers during the event. The Zebra Drums free floating stave shell drumkit had a lasting impression. Christoph Behm, from bonedo.de, wrote a short review of the drumkit:

"Ebenfalls für Aufsehen sorgte das Free-Floating Stave Kit von Zebra Drums aus Holland. Hier konnte man vergleichsweise dünne, miteinander verzahnte Dauben und eigene Free-Floating Hardware bestaunen. Besonders die Toms klangen phänomenal! Hier hat sich jemand richtig Gedanken gemacht, und auch die Preise waren erfreulich moderat angesiedelt."

In English: "The Free-Floating Stave Kit by Zebra Drums from Holland was also on show. Here one could admire comparatively thin, interconnected staves and own free-floating hardware. Especially the toms sound phenomenal! Someone has really thought this through here, and also the prices were pleasantly moderately settled."

On to the next drumfair!

December 6th 2015: Now available at Triepels Slagwerk in Geleen, Zebra Drums snare drums!! Currently in shop; the hybrid snaredrum 14"x5,5", all black hardware and a 14"x5" maple concert snaredrum, all chrome hardware with diecast hoops.

Zebra Drums attended the fourth edition of the Dutch Vintage Drum Meeting in Nieuwegein (Holland) on May the 31st. The first working prototype of the Zebra Drums free floating stave shell drumkit was presented for the first time. This kit has a unique spring-actioned suspension for both tom-toms (patent pending) and a Zebra Drums free floating system. This kit has a tremendous sound and it's so easy to tune. The positive feedback was overwhelming!
And now busy trying out a few other things with this kit live & in the studio. We'll keep you informed!! It won't take long before this kit will be on the market.... Don't hesitate to contact me for a test.
