Vibe Drum was set up in 2005 by Paolo Zuffi, combining his passion for drums with his experience and
skill as a craftsman. Today it has become one of the best known businesses in the field of percussion
instruments with entirely handmade production. Among the many distinctive features of Vibe Drum is
the choice of construction material; traditional wood has been put aside in favor of the more innovative
solution of aluminum. In fact this material has special sound characteristics perfect for percussion
instruments such as a well-defined note and controlled harmonics. Another great advantage of aluminum
is the possibility to carry out detailed machining on the shell to produce relief patterns giving the drums
a truly individual character even to the touch. In addition, our choice of paints and finishes enhance the
natural color of the aluminum and accentuate the attractive appearance of the machining to create a
totally unique look.
Thanks to its reputation for absolute quality, with instruments finished to the highest standards expected
of an Italian handcrafted product, the business has steadily grown achieving significant critical success and
public recognition. In fact, Vibe’s drumsets and snares have been seen at top level on the national stage
(including the Dalla/De Gregori Tour of 2011 and Jovanotti’s hugely successful Ora Tour 2011-2012) as well
as internationally (in the United States with the Dosage Tour 2012 by Collective Soul in the expert hands of
Johnny Rabb) in addition to being used in many recording studios of world renown such as Sphere Studio in London (whose clients include Queen, Duran Duran, Muse, etc.).
