Tamburo was founded in 1982 in the heart of Italy. It was established with a passion for crafting exceptional drums and decades later the company has now evolved into a leading force in the percussion industry. From humble beginnings to a global presence, Tamburo has consistently upheld its commitment to producing drums of the very highest quality.

At the core of Tamburo’s success lies a dedication to craftsmanship that reflects the Italian tradition of meticulous attention to detail. The company’s artisans combine time-honored techniques with modern innovations, resulting in drums that not only sound exceptional but also boast exquisite aesthetics.

All of Tamburo’s Pro Series drums are hand crafted in Italy


The Opera series features Tamburo’s intuitive stave construction which was originally designed back in 1982. Each Opera stave shell consists of:

  1. An outer HPL layer made covered with melamine or wood finishes coated with PU paint
  2. Birch plywood featuring five layers with phenolic gluing
  3. The inner layer is coated with polyurethane (PU) paint to protect the wood from humidity
  4. Internal reinforcement rings in beech wood strips to tie together and tighten the shell

These are stunning drums with a very unique appearance.  There are 15 different finishes available in the Opera range.


The Unika series shells consist of a “sandwich” structure, with two strong HPL (High Pressure Laminate) layers that have a minimum thickness of 0.8 mm to 0.9mm. The shell’s thickness depends on the type of colour and finish and the layers are connected together with a reinforcement band made from three alternate one-millimetre wooden layers.  This makes the shells extremely lightweight but very strong!


The Volume series is exclusively seamless acrylic shells. The shell thickness goes from a minimum of 3mm to a maximum of 4mm, depending on the size of drum. Volume series drums are available in a wide range of uniqur pre-configured shell packs featuring bass drum sizes from 16x16in up to 22x16in.

For the more budget conscious the Formula and T5 models are available.  These are designed in Italy and are available in a wide range of preconfigured shell packs in a variety of different colours.

Tamburo also offer matching snare drums in the Opera, Unika and Volume series.

In the Opera and Unika series sizes range from a tiny 8×6.5in side snare to a mighty 14x8in monster!

Volume acrylic series snares are available in 12×6.5in, 14×5.5in and 14×6.5in models.

Tamburo Metal Series snares are also handmade in Italy.  There are 3 different models available:

  • Brushed Aluminium – 14×6.5in
  • 1mm Steel – Black Nickel Finish – 14×6.5in
  • 1mm Hammered Steel – Chrome Finish – 14×5.5in

All Tamburo Metal Series snares are equipped with Tamburo “ST” Lug, a traditional snare strainer with a lateral lever and a 25 steel snare wire and EVANS drum Heads.
