Led Zeppelin, Berlin-Kreuzberg and the coincidence
Konrad Müller-Bremeyer, founder and CEO, on the history of drum-tec
I saw the Led Zeppelin movie "The Song Remains the Same" at the cinema with my older brothers when I was ten years old. After John Bonham stunned me first on the drums and then on his Harley, it was clear: You have to play drums! You have to ride a Motorcycle and you want to be free!
My first drum kit was an old New Sound. But it had Paiste cymbals - after all. My heroes were Stewart Copeland and Neil Peart. But what really flashed me were the piercing sounds of the Simmons V played by Spliff and Genesis.
For the next 20 years, I enthusiastically bought and played whatever the electronic drum market had to offer in the '80s and '90s. I drummed my way through curious analog E-Drums, starting with the first Pearl Syncusion, through every possible pad and module by Simmons, various Dynacord sets and samplers, a Tama Techstar and the Roland Alpha Drum. The salvation came in 1996.
With the release of the Roland TD-10, a dream came true: Roland's first V-Drum was nothing less than a revelation for me, back then at Sound & Drumland in Berlin Kreuzberg on a February day in 1996.
For the next 10 years, I enthusiastically drummed my ever-growing Roland V-Drums in various art rock formations.
At the end of the 90s I became a father of three and started a mail order business to provide a secure future for my young family. But in 2003, while looking for analog electronic drum rarities on eBay, I stumbled upon the American manufacturer Hart Dynamics. From that point on, EVERYTHING was to change! From that moment on, my merchant gene said: "This is what the world of e-drums in Europe has been waiting for! Import it! Sell it!
We do not like pizza plates
My frustrating experiences in the usual music stores in northern Germany had not been forgotten. Often the motto was: "The guy who knows about it is not here right now. And we don't like those pizza plates anyway.
And so I developed the concept and the business plan for drum-tec - Europe's first E-Drum specialist. I presented it to the bank and the distributors of Roland, Yamaha and also ddrum, who were still playing a big role in electronic drums at that time. While the bank approved the whole thing as solid and granted a little start-up capital, the E-Drum manufacturers were rather skeptical at first.
But that didn't stop me from looking for suitable premises and the first employees. Together with Uwe Kunz, who was to run the drum-tec south branch until his departure in 2021, I started a self-built online shop in late fall 2004, in a small 8 m² office, with 30 m² storage space and a small showroom.
From the very beginning we focused on the "drum-tec USP", on our uniqueness. Besides Roland, Yamaha and ddrum, we carried the American manufacturers Hart Dynamics, Smarttrigger and KAT. We grew and expanded, hiring new staff every year and adding more and more exotic e-drum brands to our portfolio. But most of all, we began to develop practical accessories and, in particular, the drum-tec mesh heads.
The result of our experience with electronic drums and the feedback of our customers was the creation of our own electronic drum lines. As early as 2008, the first drum-tec pro set saw the light of day in the world of e-drums. This was followed by the diabolo series in 2011, the drum-tec Jam series in 2013 and today we are proud to present our current series pro 3, diabolo and Jam 3.
Business Follows Passion
A big step was the move to our new and of course larger company building in Hessisch Oldendorf near Hanover, close to the A2 autobahn. This is where we currently have
- 6,000 m² of modern warehouse and logistics space with 3 packing lines, returning and service department
- a unique showroom as E-Drum paradise on 400 m² display area
- more than 500 m² office space for all departments
- the drum-tec manufactory with engineering department, production and adaptive 3D-production
- a large photo studio, a streaming studio and our Creative Drum Sound Lab
- event facilities for masterclasses and workshops and even our own cafeteria
In the beginning I just wanted to emulate John Bonham. Today it seems to me that "business follows passion" is the only true explanation for this evolution. Who would have thought that our work and creativity, the Made in Germany series, the amount of ideas and joy would receive such a great response and feedback from the worldwide e-drum community. So a big thank you to you, the thousands of e-drummers all over the world:
Thank You for being a part of the drum-tec history & family ❤
Today, drum-tec is managed by Matthias Lück (Sales), Philipp Kowalczyk (IT) and myself as CEO. Creative and energetic, we work and act together to benefit our team of more than 30 wonderful and diverse people. And these people are a wild bunch. Ideas and sometimes whole products are not born on the drawing board, but out of enthusiasm in the corridor, during breaks, barbecues or kickers. Almost all of them are drummers, musicians or gearheads, so there is a lot of creativity.
We Are Family
Dear colleagues: It is great pleasure to work for and with you!
In 2024, we will celebrate 20 years of drum-tec. Looking back on this long period, I see a lot of development, but also the permanent change and movement of the company. With all that comes and goes, the one big idea still remains: "To give drummers all over the world the best we can offer!" This aspiration and this overarching company purpose will continue to carry us forward. And it is the sum of so much. Therefore, to all the alumni as well: Thank you! Without your contribution drum-tec would not be where we are today!
I am excited and curious and I look forward to many more successful and lively drum-tec years!
