Adoro Musical Instruments

Even though the company address is in England, Adoro was founded 2008 in Germany and still are produced in Hamburg, too. Drums had been manufactured starting in 2007, but without any brand name. Actually the drums were meant for renting and to advertize a hardware store for drum builders, but it turned out that the drums were an instant hit. The manufacturer also runs an online drum building community. [Source: Stefan Korth, email 11/3/2010]
