Origin series features overview

Origin series features overview

The unique features of our ground breaking new drum series.  Exquisitely crafted - zero compromise design - 3 distinctive ranges

Origin Classic range

Origin Classic range

Our Origin Classic range features undrilled steam bent shells, & is designed for artists performing jazz, big band, latin, classic rock, or any genre that requires an open sound across a huge dynamic & tuning range.  With a distinctive voice, & clear fundamental, these drums open up to full tone with a feather touch, yet can roar at higher dynamics too.  The Origin design elements really come together in the Classic range, to deliver a big, full, classic sound palate, but at levels of performance beyond traditional constructions.

Origin Performance Range

Origin Performance Range

Our Origin Performance range features undrilled stave shells, & is designed for today's music styles + performance situations.  A deep, rich fundamental tone, combined with superb projection & control of overtones, deliver a uniquely voiced instrument that's dialled in from the moment you set it up.  The highly resonant undrilled solid padauk shells, combined with ultra low mass Origin hardware, offer a huge tuning range & dynamic that standard constructions can't match for sheer presence & impact.

Origin Custom Range

Origin Custom Range

Origin Custom, this is where you get to specify the highest quality drums in the world, & have them crafted to produce your individual sound.  You choose Origin performance (stave shells) or Origin Classic (steam bent shells) as the basis of your build, then just about any other element can be customised to your requirements.

Snare Drums - updates in progres

Snare Drums - updates in progres

A great snare drum starts with a great shell.  It's the foundation of the instrument's voice, just as a snare drum is the very foundation of a great sounding kit.  Here at Guru, we use only the finest hand selected boards to craft solid shell snare drums of exquisite quality.
