Why Schlagwerk?

For me personally, the two most fascinating aspects about Schlagwerk instruments are their quality and their sound.

Favourite Instrument?

Udu and Cajon la Perù

Musical Style

World music, jazz and classical


Nationaltheater Mannheim
Nativa Brasileira Band
Cocada Band

How to mic?

I mic up the Udu drum with an AKG microphone mounted at the hole. For the cajon I use a condensator percussion microphone on a stand in front of the instrument plus an AKG clip mic attached to the backside of the cajon.
