Default New Arcs Drumkit!

This drumkit was made for a Icellandic drummer called Einar Scheving. The wood is called Palisander. The shells were made here in Iceland and also the lugs. Hardware is a blend of Yamaha and Pearl. The sound is amazing and it looks amazing.

22x18" Bassdrum
10x7" Tom
12x8" Tom
15x14" Floor
13x6" Snare

Here is a link to the photos http://rennijon.123.is/album/default.aspx?aid=173982

the drums on your site look beautiful!.. mmh. :-)
any soundbites of any of the drums you have built? (without excessive studio edits if possible).
how much are you charging per drum/depth?

Awsome looking kit! I like darker way more then blondes, so you got me with the wood ;-). I love the lugs on the kit. Bit steampunk.

That's what she said... ;)

Nice kit indeed! I like the industrial look on the lugs, and the colour combination.

Other than the Pearl mounts, they are really lovely looking drums, especially the contrast between the dark shells and light lugs!
What are the lugs made from? They almost look like wood?

I must say after hearing them that these are one of the best sounding drums i've ever heard, and the finish isn't any worse!
Nice Job!

Thank you all! The lugs are made from a material called "Messing" and then the lugs are put in a acid bath to get this finish.

Here is a video with a band called Dikta, nowdays it is the most played band in Iceland. This is a clip from the Icelandic music awards where this Arcs drumkit was used. All the floor toms on the stage are not from Arcs :P

That's brass, a copper-zinc alloy, somewhat similar to bronze.
