About us

We „up-drums“, Markus Unterthurner and Urban Piazzi
are qualified furniture makers. In the last years we have been very busy developing the manufactory of our snare-drums. Our basic furniture makers technical skills and our experiences as hobby-drummers have helped us create our personal snare-drums.
In 2003 we presented our first prototype. Since then we have been continuously testing new kinds of woods and sound-possibilities. Our special desire is to constantly create something original and unique. We also had the chance to convince some famous drummers of the quality of our snares. They were impressed by the sensible response and richness of the instrument, also by the natural look and the perfect manufactory. Another important reason for us to look ahead, and to find new challenges.
