FAQ

Where are Angel Drums made?
All Angel Drums components are meticulously handmade in Nyiregyhaza, Hungary. Each and every component of our drums is individually crafted by just a handful of talented artisans.

Where do you get your drum shells?
We make our own drum shells using out of solid segment blocks using only the highest rated, most resonant, and beautifully figured timber. Our proprietary processes allow the wood to remain in its natural chemical state to facilitate crystal clear quality sound.

Where do you get your lugs?
We hand machine each of our own lugs individually out of solid high-quality brass and then use a protective lacquer for a long lasting raw brass finish or plate each lug in a variety of finishes.

What is the difference between brass lugs and cast lugs?
Cast lugs are made of pot metal which choke the sound of the drum. The overtones produced by cast lugs are not pleasant when compared to a drum with brass lugs. If you pick up a cast lug and strike it with your finger, you will hear a sound that is much different than the one produced by tapping the brass lug. Cast lugs also have the disadvantage of being hollow with air space, which also vibrates when the drum is struck. Also, cast lugs typically use a spring and lock nut that will strip out or break over time. If you want something road-worthy and durable that facilitates optimal sound capabilities, brass hardware is a must have.

Where did you guys get those drum hoops?
Angel Hoops are made of 303 stainless steel, are hand rolled, hand welded, then hand polished to perfection and patent pending! Angel Hoops are easily best thing to happen to snare drums in recorded history. Angel hoops are made of stainless steel and reduce muffling caused by diecast and other drum hoops that are made of pot metal. They also facilitate proper placement of the drum head directly over the drum shell for maximum resonance.

Where is your timber supplied from?

What type of throw-off is on Angel snare drums?
Our own patent pending throw-off of course. The Angel throw-off is hand-machined out of heavy duty solid bronze and then plated to specification. Our throw-off can be assembled and disassembled in under 10 seconds using no tools at all. Angel’s throw-off design is simple and rugged, yet smooth and efficient. It will be the last throw off you ever buy! These are sold separately and also come with a LIFETIME WARRANTY.

What components of your drums are made by other companies?
We use Remo drumheads, Pure Sound snare wires, and standard tension rods.

Why is there no eyelet hole in the back of the shell and holes under each of the lugs?
Instead of drilling one hole in the back of the drum shell which creates a huge inconstancy, we drill small holes under each of the brass lugs which allow the shell to vent itself and resonate evenly. The anatomy of a drum is symmetrical so why the one hole? It makes perfect sense when you think about it, and the increased volume and response was astounding.
