Once upon a time I dreamed of being a drummer…but our band needed a bass player so I had to set my dream aside.
For many years, I lived with this latent desire, until the day I decided to be the long hand of as many drummers as possible all over the world. How? I sat down in front of a drum set and I asked myself what more I could offer drummers than the usual old wooden drumsticks. Immediately I realized that the technological heritage of my family was exactly what I needed. We produce the most outstanding mechanical components for demanding industrial fields like aerospace, avionics, automotive, etc., using the know-how, the technology and the hands of our staff. I asked myself: “Why not taking advantage of this for all drummers?”.
From the mix of passion and expertise Techra was born.
WHO WE ARE
Techra is composited by a team of passionate technicians with 50 years of experience in the development of high performance compounds applied to a wide variety of high demanding applications.
We apply excellent innovation skills to the world of drums. We have developed and tested many different synthetic compounds and tuned some specific composites, achieving our goal: producing with carbon fiber an innovative and powerful drumstick.
We want to make drummers happy. Happy about what they hold in their hands. Inspired by the sound of our drumsticks.
Techra’s mission is to offer musicians new expression opportunities using innovative materials and concepts.
Indeed, we aim at proposing to musicians a green choice, in order to preserve the environment: making music without the wood of trees. We want to make drummers happy about holding a stick that saves forests and is 100% recyclable.
WE KNOW WHAT DRUMMERS NEED
Drummers have always needed something light, in order to be fast and effective, without getting tired. Indeed, stiff to get the right sensibility on toms and cymbals. Drummers have always appreciated the optimum rat between stiffness and weight that wood offers. No other material can naturally give that.
Drummers demand from their sticks not only great sound, but also durability, easier handling, fast playing, agility and sound volume.
In addition, drummers are becoming much more sensitive to the environment. They can preserve it simply by choosing a drumstick that is not made out of wood.
Techra gave their needs an answer, through 6 different lines of carbon fiber drumsticks. Techra did not aim at replicating wood. Techra has created something unique, that offers drummers a more open vision for playing drums, a way to find new inspiration.
