Shells

We offer a choice of selected shell types for you to choose from. These shell types have been put together to cover all the demands you might have and make your dream sound become reality. Our LB MBM shells are the standard for all wooden kits and are stocked in house. The thicker LB Premium shells can be made from different materials, are made to each order and therefore come at a slightly higher price.
All our shells have been developed over years with lots of testing, changing and testing and changing over and over again with the constant goal of finding the right balance between sound and quality. We pride ourselves with being fully in charge of our own shell production giving us the freedom to create our very own shell configurations, pressed by skilled craftsmen here in Europe.

The graphic below shows the differences between our shells when it comes to attack and sustain.

Bearing Edges

The Edges are crucial for the attack and response of the drum. We offer three standard Bearing Edges cut in house:

  • LB Standard 45°/rounded
  • Vintage 45°/rounded
  • Fully rounded

As a custom option we can also cut your very own edge to your exact specifications.

Finishes

Your shells can be oiled, wrapped, veneered, stained, painted and anything else you can dream up. 
We divided our finishes into 5 FINISH TYPES which define their price range.
