Need To Know

Here at LB we offer a constantly improved selection of options to customize your drums. We always follow a simple but important idea: When purchasing a LB kit or snare you will get the best instrument we can possibly make. Even the most basic configuration gets the same attention to detail and consists of the best components available. We won't charge extra for a better quality instrument, so we can stand behind our product 100%.
 

Shells

The most important decision you will make to determine how your drum will sound. We offer many different shells and even more different materials to choose from.

We've put years into curating our shell selection, constantly refining cunstruction and wood sourcing.

Our standard shell since 2015 is the LB MBM shell, everything else is considered an upgrade and will mark up the price of your drum. However there's a reason why we trust so much in this basic shell concept: it is the most versatile and full sounding shell we've ever made and is by many drummers referred to as the LB Sound. If you are into a different shell or material, we'd be happy to provide what ever you need to get the job done.

All our wood shells are made by a family owned carpentry not far from here to our exact specifications. Acrylic shells are from the US or China. Metal shells can come from anywhere in CH, EU, US or Taiwan.

LB MBM

LB Classic

Acrylic

Our flagship.

Made from 2plies of US maple and a 3ply EU birch core. Re-rings cut from the same shell add stability to this fairly thin shell. It will produce a warm, controlled and versatile sound with huge low end and the perfect amount of projection.

Formerly called LB Premium.

Custom shells made from Maple, birch, beech, cherry, ash, mahagony, bubinga and more. Any ply configuration, any size. Choose exactly what's right for you.

Definition and punch.

Acrylic shells are well known for their attack, projection and of course their unique look. We offer both welded and seamless shells.

Hybrid

Metal

Custom Concept

Best of multiple worlds.
Maybe you want the sustain of a maple shell but the attack and ping from aluminium edges? Or combining acrylic with maple is your perfect match. What ever combination you have in mind, we'll marry it for you.. 

Aluminium, brass, bronze, steel, copper. Rolled and welded, deep drawn, spun or thin with wood re-rings. We got it all.

You wanna go wild or simply want something else?

Stave, steambent or segmented construction?

Second shell in your snare? Chamber shell? Splitted? Top and bottom in two different sizes? We are ready to try out what we haven't already.

Finishes

We offer a wide selection of different finishes to customize your shells. 

Our finishes are divided in 4 price groups. Depending on the labour intensity the price will go up. Below are some samples of Wraps, Veneers and acrylics. We can also laquer, burst, wheather, hand paint or custom print your shells with your provided artwork. The only limitation is your imagination and budget, really. If you don't see what you want, get in touch!

Stain

We mix & sample every color to order.


All stains are sealed with either a satin (satin stain) or high-gloss (high-gloss stain) laquer depending on your preference. Stained shells can also be bursted (faded) with a second color.

Veneer

We work with multiple suppliers to source the right veneer for your project. It's of big importance to us to search for and only purchase sustainably grown and certified woods.

All veneered shells are sealed with either a satin (satin veneer) or high-gloss (high-gloss veneer) laquer depending on your preference.

Some veneers can be stained in different colors, some can't.

Paintjobs

Paintjobs on your shells can be anything from a simple solid flat-white to the wildest custom artwork. We move within the NCS and RAL systems, giving you the freedom to choose any color you might like.
