    Wat een beauty ♥ prachtig ontwerp en geluid. Het is nog een beetje lastig om de hogere tonen met de vingers te bespelen ik moet daar gewoon nog mee oefenen denk ik. Maar je krijgt er ook een paar drumsticks bij, en hiermeelukt het direct om geweldig geluid te krijgen. Ook de klantenservice was super! Ik raad deze drums ten zeerste aan 🙂

    Verzending duurde bijna 4 dagen waardoor de drum niet optijd was voor onder de boom, terwijl op jullie site toch duidelijk staat binnen 24uur verzending. Heb gemaild maar nogsteeds geen reactie. Drum is verder wel in orde

    I am now the delighted owner of two LIDAH drums, this Constellations Series AkeBono, and the Zephyr Series Equinox. They are extremely well crafted and the sound they can produce is mesmerizing. I am absolutely thrilled with this constellation series version. Because of the Travel Size I can keep it in the car and play whenever I have time to spare!

    Ik bestelde nu voor de tweede keer bij LIDAHdrums, dit keer voor mijn nichtje. Ze was super enthausiast om het cadeau te openen en te gaan spelen. Fenomenale klantenservice en nog betere kwaliteit instrumenten!
