Our snare drums are almost entirely handmade. Our focus lies on the unique sound and aesthetic design of the snares.
The top-quality wood is processed into 170 individual parts, including the hoops, the lugs and the specially developed snare strainer.
This gives our Up-drums their unique sound and their special appearance.
Come to us and look which snare you like best. Every snare is individually designed and unique.

Up-drums has developed a unique wooden snare strainer that enables the snare to be lifted silently.
For the production of the unique Up-drums, we limit ourselves exclusively to stave stares and use different types of wood.
For our snare drums we use heads from Remo and bottom snares from Puresound.
The lugs, made of different types of wood and shapes, are a feast for the eyes of every drummer.
Le nostre viti di tensione sono esagonali incassate con chiave in dotazione. For our UP_Drums we manly use socket screws. There is a matching key for the snare drum.
The laser engraving makes each instrument individual and personalised. There are no limits to the execution.
