The Masshoff Dakota DC 3 kit for Jazz Master Torsten Zwingenberger


Torsten is such a big fan of the famous DC 3 aircraft that he wanted me to capture the spirit of the plane and traveling in his new dream kit. The stunning handmade drum kit surpassed Torsten`s expectations by far - this is the highest achievement for any manufacturer.


The making time of the kit were roundabout 300 hours of handwork. It´s made out of 1,2 mm special shaped and hand welded stainless steel shells that are plated with 8 layers of copper and various coloured patina. It is then sanded and polished to this finish. Around the kit are various original parts from a 1940 Douglas DC3 like a gold plated cockpit tachometer on top of the bass drum or the original aircraft data plate. On top of the bass drum sits a gold plated die cast model of the Dakota plane that turns around while you play. Each drum has a different 74K gold inlay continent and copper structured continents around it. Every drum bares a DC3 airplane decal. 8 layers of copper with different coloured patina were hand sanded and polished to create this phantastic antique finish. Sizes are: 22x14,13x9,14x14,16x14,14x8.


Nothing beats the sound and feel of those drums! This is why even jazz guys like Torsten Zwingenberger stopped playing his dream vintage gretsch and radio king kits and bought a second kit from me. This is the ultimate instrument - no joke! There never was anything like it when it comes to sound,tone and power.


Come to Berlin to see, feel and hear what you never could dream before. You are always welcome!
