A&F DRUM CO WALNUT CLUB 4 PIECE DRUM KIT, NICKEL ON BRASS FITTINGS, WALNUT HOOPS
Antoun & Family Drum Co.
We have been huge fans of A&F right from the start! When we first heard and saw these incredible luxury boutique drums - we were just blown away.
A&F President and founder Ramy Antoun is a long time professional drummer who has an incredible drumming CV - playing sessions for artists such as Seal, Paul Simon, James Taylor, Willie Nelson and many more. When Ramy originally started the company he was in the pursuit of a look and sound that he had mapped out in his head for his own personal requirements. What followed from the results of that mission quickly snowballed in to a company with a 100 year business plan.
A&F's quest is to blend old-world craftsmanship with new world sounds and we believe their incredible sounds and beautiful designs have already changed the way in which many drummers now approach playing.
We are very proud to be A&F Drum Co’s UK home, we can’t wait to introduce you all to these drums.
The Walnut Club Drum Kit.
Here we have the first Walnut Club drum kit available for sale anywhere. This kit came straight from the NAMM 2019 show where A&F officially unveiled this new drum kit to the world. The shells are a 7 Ply Walnut and Hickory mix, there are no reinforcing rings, no inside edge however the outer edge is slightly round over. This kit also features another new optional upgrade from A&F which is the Nickel over Brass hardware. We think this really sets the Walnut shells off beautifully, the final specification on this kit is matching Walnut Hoops which are really well executed. The Walnut hoops make this kit infectious, you just want to play it!, it feels great, sounds incredible at any tuning point and just draws something extra out of you!
The tuning range on these drums is one of the most impressive features, A&F ship the kit with Coated Ambassador batter heads and Ambassador Clear reso’s. The sound is full, the walnut gives the drums added stick definition but what is very impressive throughout the tuning range is the control of unwanted over tones and overall punch - the drums feel like they deliver an optimum balance what ever your preference of note. This is a credit to A&F’s philosophy of Simple Design | Practical Application | Brilliant Sound. The Walnut Club certainly delivers on this and simply is up there with the finest drums you’ve ever heard.
This kit will be a studio producer or live sound engineers dream to mix, and acoustically they are a joy to listen to, we encourage you to come and have a listen for yourself.
