To ensure uniform quality and to find suitable grade steel, we contacted a manufacturer in Hong-Kong who, after some months of negotiation agreed to provide us with his experience and infrastructure to produce the Panda Drums that we know today.
They are marked out very carefully, cut using thin blades on an angle grinder, welded and polished. Each note has its edges rounded to ensure maximum comfort when playing by hand.
Precision tuning is guaranteed by using a high quality tuner and is achieved in several stages. We add our own exclusively designed attenuator which dampens unwanted vibrations and keeps the sound of each note clear and resonant. We have opted for a shorter sustain which has improved intelligibility and dissonance between notes.
We use high quality, Chinese alloy steel and coat it with metallic paint from Germany in colorful, fruity flavors. We finish each Panda DrumTM with a hard-wearing high gloss varnish leaving a smooth, pleasant surface to touch, inside and out.
