Whether in the cold of a truck or the warmth of a stage, they remain resonant and stable. Daily tuning? No longer necessary.

craft 💪

From the rugged quarry to the refined masterpiece, each drum undergoes a meticulous journey. It begins with the careful extraction of natural stone, followed by precise cutting with industrial saws. Then, the magic happens in StoneDrum's own factory in Austria. We shape it with modern CNC machines, yet the soul of craftsmanship lies in the hands of our skilled artisans, who meticulously hand-finish each drum to perfection. Operating as a family-owned business, we uphold the highest standards of quality, ensuring that every drum undergoes a thorough inspection before it finds its way to you.


The playfeeling of a StoneDrum is truly incomparable to other snare drums, providing a unique sensory experience for the player. The stone body of the drum conducts every touch and stroke with exceptional immediacy, allowing even the most delicate ghost notes to be distinctly audible. This immediate response ensures that each nuance of your playing is captured and conveyed with crystal-clear clarity. Moreover, the robust stone body enhances the drum's volume and penetrating power, making it stand out
