A&F's Black Maple Kit is made with our exclusive thin maple/poplar or mahogany/poplar shell composition, no re-rings or inside edge, our outside reverse baseball bat edge, raw brass hoops on Rack Toms, raw brass or wood striped hide-a-hoops on the floor tom, and our patented raw brass hardware. These drums tune lower then their size balanced with perfect punch and attack AND are extremely microphone friendly!
Simple Design, Practical Application, Brilliant Sound…these are the pillars that Antoun & Family Drum Co. (A&F) is built upon.
What began as personal mission to make one drum, has now become a legacy drum manufacturing company. Founder and President Ramy Antoun began his career as a studio drummer in Los Angeles in 1996 when he got a call to come into the studio and record live break beats for an “up and coming” rap group. The session spanned five evenings and resulted in the first Black Eyed Peas Album. From there, Ramy went on to record and perform with hundreds of artists including Seal, Paul Simon, James Taylor, Willie, Nelson, Ed Kowalczyk of the band LIVE, Alexi Murdoch, Glen Phillips, Buckethead, Bonnie Raitt, and more. 25 years in the studio became the foundation of A&F Drum Co.’s sound, design, and aesthetic.
