VISION

Luka Drums has been producing high-end, custom drums carved from the log for over 20 years.

Features

Canadian Sugar Maple

Superior sound properties

  • Each snare drum is made from Canadian sugar maple, known worldwide for its sound and structural qualities

  • We also use white ash and cherrywood for their own particularities, both sonic and visual.

Shell dug out of the tree

Vertical wood texture = better sound projection

  • The snare drum is built from a single piece of wood hollowed out of the tree, so there is not any : glue, folds or joints

  • All of these aspects eliminate distortion of the drum since the wood remains in its original form.

One piece

Consistency in the drum, same original shape = no sound distortion

  • Since the wood grain is vertical, the distribution of sound inside the drum is facilitated, since it travels freely between the two heads without restriction.

ENVIRONMENT

All sawdust is recovered and distributed to local farms.
