We are very happy to announce this collaboration
The latest sample collection brings together Zourman Drum’s 2box knowledge, a fantastic sounding snare from 101Drums and Johan Koleberg’s drum recording studios in a great pack of snare samples. The custom samples are now released as a Zourman drum sampling product and customers can buy it as a download at the www.zourman.com site.
The 101Drums samples consist of 168MB samples, 6 different snare sounds generated from over 800 drum hits. With the 2box open sound source
approach, we were able to create a another sample package based on a great snare and release it in 2box file format.

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

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.

Exactly 1 month ago....On Friday 7th December 2018, the 2nd annual years final of Rockstar Drum Academy’s "Drummer of the year 2018" took place at Queen Anne High School, Dunfermline between 2 amazing drummers Nathan Hutchinson and Joe Petrie. The turn out and support for these 2 guys was brilliant. A real battle took place between the 2 with total dedication and concentration.
The overall and worthy winner NATHAN HUTCHINSON, who was over whelmed by his 1st prize of a specially made snare drum by 101 DRUMS, SWEDEN.Only a few weeks before Nathan had asked his mum for a new snare for xmas, so Nathan now has proof that dreams do come true. The First prize was presented by non other than Carl Williams.
