IN A WORD (OR TWO)
A

gile, fast, precise, light. Are we talking about the poplar root drum set on this page, or about Alice Pizzi, the Milanese drummer who plays for Paros Mecchanica? Both of course! When there’s a true understanding, the musician and the instrument reflect each other. She wanted an instrument that met her needs as a jazz drummer, and was also easy to transport (the drum set can be dismantled thanks to our magtrioska system) She also made a specific request: to dedicate it to her two beloved greyhounds. We …raced… to indulge her. The result is bursting with elegance: we’re proud of it.

NOTES & CURIOSITIES

Wood

This handmade drum set is made entirely of polar root, combined with light blue resin and greyhound shaped inlays. Gold hardware and throw-off with triple snare wires.

The Sound

This drum set is clearly designed to be at its best when used for acoustic and electric jazz: it’s highly responsive with an elegant tone, clear well-defined harmonics and bass presence that is above suspicion.
