AE Hybrid Drums

New member

I am Marcus from AE Hybrid | Drums. We are a new electronic drum company from Germany founded in 2020.
We provide converted acoustic shell sets and low volume cymbals. We produce our own trigger
systems for shells and cymbals. For detailed information check out our product range.

The reason why we founded this company is we never liked to have to chose from a limited range of
drum shells, sizes and finishes for electronic drums. We all like playing real size acoustic drums and
metal cymbals, so we decided to make our own business to provide custom drum kits with the most
possible realistic drum feeling and look.

Our main concept is to offer you the possibility to chose a shell set from an acoustic drum manufacturer
you like and we convert it into electronic drums.

Second part of our concept is to leave the converted sets fully acoustially playable. You just have to change
the batter heads, remove the dampening foam discs from the shells and adjust the trigger cone as you like.

With our drums and cymbals we value a plain look. No big logos, no drilling, hidden connections on shells and cymbals
and no damaging of any original acoustic shells.

We provide shell sets, drum kits including shells, cymbals, hardware and a drum module of your choice, and single
cymbal sets. Cymbal sets and drum kits include our AE-CHX hihat controller for 2 piece hats.

At the moment we are producing further demo videos for our drum kits with Roland, ATV, Alesis and of course 2box modules and with VSTi.
We also plan to offer preset packs for VSTi like Superior Drummer 3 and several modules from Roland. But the probably most exiting thing is
that we are recording high quality drum and cymbal samples for 2box DrumIt 3/5, Alesis Strike and other modules which feature multilayer sample import.
We will provide sound/sample packs mainly along with our drum kits. Later as single downloads, too. This project will still take a while so stay tuned for news about that.

Our recording kit: Tama Starclassic Performer Bubinga/Birch (22/10/12/16") with Dixon Artisan 14x5,5", Mapex Black Panther 14x6,5", PDP M5 14x5" und Brass 14x5,5" Snares.
As well as everal Meinl Byzance, Turkish, Bosphorus, Anatolian and much more cymbals plus stacks, fx snares with splashes and hoop crusher, deep low tunings.
