BERARDINO DRUMS, 100 YEARS AHEAD...IN MAKING A DIFFERENCE!
Berardino Drums was born in Pescara back in 2000. It is located in Via G. Fonzi
8 in a 150 square meters warehouse. Just a bet settled by Alessandro Di
Berardino and his father Lorenzo with a friend of theirs gave birth to the firm.
The bet was about solving the everyday problems faced by a drummer like tuning,
head replacement and overtones.
friend was Giovanni Del Gallo, a jazz drummer who needed some kind of drum
tuning system with just a single lug (instead of the standard 8 lug system) as a
solution to the defects of the instrument.
then, Alessandro and his father started working on the solution also thanks to
the technical skills earned in their own car workshop and a long career with a
motorbike team which gave the family a national and european success.
Alessandro’s father, Lorenzo is also a drummer who back in 1989 designed a crescent shaped shell by using stowed staves (a patented special system). Unfortunately the design was abandoned due to family problems. But after about 10 years, the Di Berardinos brought that design back to life and, together with their newly designed single lug system, created their first drum and started a beautiful career with newborn Di Berardino Drums:

2010 – Di Berardino Drums at “Music Italy show” held in Bologna HISTORY
Di Berardino Drums appeared on tv shows broadcasted by national tv (RAI) and Mediaset, together with international artists who chose a Di Berardino Drums for their live set.
Since the beginning Di Berardino Drums never had endorsers, although several requests from various artists.
Unfortunately, Di Berardino Drums is a small firm with no economic resources for this expensive kind of advertisement and all of the instruments produced are only available for purchase.
Hoops: the same for every brand in the drum market
Shells: the same for every brand in the drum market
Lugs: only aesthetic differences
the same for every brand in the drum market.
you ever be able to understand which company made a drum only by listening to it?
Anyway, only those few people who can tune a drum can make a difference. Period.
