Stefan Korth was founder of the drum building community dertrommelbauer.de (R.I.P.), CEO of customdrums.de and supplyer of roughly a thousand drum makers with drum parts and shells. Being a church drummer himself, his interest in drums have always been focused on low volume drumming in difficult acoustic situations. He first started building drums age 15, and took the chance in 2007 to turn his career around – he was a well established graphic designer with his own advertisement company – and started all over with building drums, or as he would put the emphasis: real acoustic drums.
Adoro Drums, the company that evolved from all that, has since won several prices and nominations for best instrument. Stefan also gives workshops on drum building and tuning, and has been helping legion churches and theaters to get rid of edrums and drum cages.
