My background really is fundamentally connected with the drums in their purest nature:
The Creation.
I was always fascinated by the necessary processes to create a finished drum or cymbal.
So I approached many drum and cymbal manufacturers over the years and started to build a little drum-heaven for myself as well as for others in a form of a drum shop.

But my fascination for creating things didn’t stop there, but it began to evolve, as finding myself behind the drum kit always brought me endless joy and curiosity.
I was inquisitively diving into the creation of sound right away and was fully-blown with capturing and recording it.
Thus, over the years I started to wonder, why this joy and fascination should only be hidden inside my own creations. Why shouldn’t I share this joy and help people with their creations and sounds?

This idea turned into what you see now.
Let me help you create something what makes others happy!
