World Premiere - The 14" Diamond Hoops by 101 Drums Custom Shop

April 4 2020

We are very proud to present our brand new 14” Diamond Hoops. They are made of the same composite woodfiber material as our unique 101 shells. You get “The best of both world´s” when we talk metal hoops vs wood hoops. The Diamond hoops are very suitable for different genres like Rock, Jazz, Blues, pop etc.

 

Compared to the Die Cast hoops, the overall sound is a bit more mellow, juicy and less sharp. You get a warmer sound compared to Die Cast hoops. The rim shots are still there and the high frequencies are more under control.

 

The Diamond hoops are very sturdy and solid build and has very nice tonal properties.

 

For pricing check the "Products" page

 

Some input from tests done by 101 drummers:

 

*Achim Färber “Eisbrecher” – Germany:

 

*“After three days of intense playing, I would say incredible.”

*“My hearing impression is that the sound gets warmer and woodier”.

* “I would say that the new hoops are a winner!”

 

Martin Fürst – Sweden:

 

*“They hoops help the drum to open up a little earlier in the dynamic curve, and I really like that - the crack comes at a lower volume and there are obvious benefits from that.”

*“They look really nice and just from watching and touching them I felt that this is a product of highest quality.”

*“After playing them a while now they seem almost unbreakable, which was definitely not the case with some other woodhoops I tried some years ago!”

 

Johan Koleberg  “WOLF” - Sweden

 

*”The durability is very good. Almost as hard as steel”

*” My snare went more dry after putting these hoops on. More "wood character" sound.”

Ian Haugland “EUROPE” - Sweden

 

*“ The same high standard durability on theses hoops, as the 101 Black Diamond snare drum, in other words superb!”

*“ The quality is by far much better than any other brand metal or wood hoop that I have tried before, even the looks are better!

*” With these beauties you’ll never need to waste time and energy again, on getting rid of nasty ringing overtones!”

 

Erik B Larsson - Sweden

 

*“You’re getting extra response from your snare, without having to change the way you play!”

*“As soon as I put these hoops on my snare I was amazed by how large the sound got! No matter how I play, the snare sounds BIG!”

World Premier - The very first 101 drumkit is a fact

June 11 2019.

We are extremely happy to announce our very first custom drumkit. The drumkit is made for the legendary Micke Syd from the even more legendary Swedish band Gyllene Tider. The band celebrates 40 years, and they are going out on a huge Farewell Tour this summer.

Meetings with Micke started almost a year ago when he revealed the GT would probably go on a Farewell Tour in 2019. We had discussions about a possible drumkit in the unique 101 material, and we thought it would be very cool that our first drumkit would be made for Micke and Gyllene Tider. Now Micke have had the set for a few weeks, and he is very happy with the sound. And so is the drumtech and the rest of the band. We are looking forward to hear the kit on big areanas around Sweden this summer. Check out Gyllene Tider HERE

We are happy to welcome Sven Dirkschneider to the 101 Family

January 26  2019.

Sven Dirkschneider joins the "101 Family". Sven Dirkschneider was very impressed when he got the opportunity to test some 101 snares when they played Amager Bio in Copenhagen, on their last tour. Since then we have talked about the ultimate snare for Sven, and the 14 x6,5" Smokey Diamond "Sven Dirkschneider Edition" is now Sven´s main snare. The snare has a cool rusty look, and together with the Black Nickel hardware it looks really nice.

 

Sven´s artist page will be uploaded soon.

 

If the U.D.O. tour comes to a city near you, go check them out. and have a listen to Sven´s amazing 101 snare.
