LuKa Percussion's True solid shell drum kits are the culmination of over a decade of intensive research and development by Luka’s master builder. The goal was to create a drum kit that would surpass every drum ever created and bring the standard in custom drums to an unknown level. Sensitivity, ultra responsiveness, body, projection, resonance; a drum kit with a sound so pure, full, resonant, and so in tune with itself has never existed before... Until now…
The toms, bass drum, and snare of your LuKa Percussion drum kit are derived from a single section of Maple, Ash, or Birch log. True solid shell construction allows the drum to freely resonate beyond ply, stave, block, or steam bent drums. True solid shell drums are seamless and perfect. Our design keeps the wood in the shape and form it has held since the beginning of time and results in a drum set that is wholly in-tune with itself and sonically perfect. This is Mother Nature’s way of designing sound components!
Our bass drums sound huge, with unbelievable depth and resonance. The toms combine a highly melodic, broad attack, warmth, and a huge powerful sound. This is the magic of a solid shell drum set.
Our Tom and floor tom shells are 1/4 inch thick. Bass drums are 3/8 inch thick. Thin drum shells promote longer resonance and lower pitch. This, combined with the uninhibited nature of True solid shell construction, allows the drum to freely resonate in a way drums have never been heard.
