HANDCRAFTED IN THE U.S.A.
The only glueless stave drum in the world.

The world doesn’t really need another snare drum.

It needs a better snare drum.

At Laudo Drums, we know each piece of wood has its own identity, history, character, tone and timbre and so do you.  Your DNA is undeniably musical.  You have your own “Sonic Fingerprint”™.

WOOD AND US…

We dance in the breeze, we weather the storms. We have times of rest and seasons of fruitfulness… We each have struggles, we each have victories.  We all have triumphs, we all have scars… We are totally unique… individual… original…

Plywood and real wood don’t sound alike.

Release the rich musical wood tone you’ve waited for. Laudo Custom Snare Drums.

STAVE SHELLS

STAVE SHELLS

We design stave shells  with the freedom to resonate, producing a true wood tone.  They have a wide tuning range and our shells are stable, strong, and rigid.

NO GLUE

NO GLUE

Because glue does not resonate, it muffles wood’s natural tone. We produce pieces or staves of wood that fit together without the need for glue.

WOOD GRAIN ORIENTATION

WOOD GRAIN ORIENTATION

Laudo stave shells have vertically oriented grain, which allows vibration to pass much easier than traditional alternating grain patterns in ply drum shells.

UNSTRESSED WOOD

UNSTRESSED WOOD

We do not bend our shells.  Our staves are carved and stable in their unstressed state, and will naturally produce lower tones than ply or steam bent drums.

what drummers are saying…

  • I've worked with the top world class drummers in my career, and can honestly say that these drums (Laudo) don't have to take a back seat to any out there!
