Your synapses process 1 000 000 000 stimuli per second. Give them something inspiring.

The ear is a sensitive mechanism that responds to the finest vibrations. Even inaudible frequencies are clocked by the body via sensory cells in the stomach and skin. All impressions are processed in your brain into a single experience. You can feel excellent sound with all your senses: this is the Schlagwerk Sound Experience.

The production already belongs to the holistic experience: Selection, storage and processing of our woods are subject to the strictest criteria. During the construction, we rethink every instrument and in our daily work we feel every edge and fibre with passion. Our lived experience is part of the Schlagwerk Sound.

Excel yourself: When you play a Schlagwerk instrument, your environment becomes your resonator. It maximizes your performance and makes your sound experience even more intense.

The Sound-Experience label marks the unique sound characteristics of Schlagwerk instruments. It stands for the expertise inherent in all our products and the special sensation you experience while playing and hearing it. In short: It describes the sense of delight that is triggered by the Schlagwerk Sound. And by the outstanding and appealing look you do connect instantly that it sounds great too.

The 'S'

The "S" stands for Schlagwerk and for perfect sound. The curved letter is also a new symbol for the sound waves that can already be seen in the Schlagwerk company logo.

Color variety:

The bright colours stand for the versatility of our instruments, materials, working processes and, last but not least, our customers and musical possibilities. And despite the diversity, they fit together well, because they carry the Schlagwerk gene within them.

Hands on:

Our instruments are carefully handcrafted and played by hand: It is only through the use of hands that an instrument becomes a Sound Experience.
