THE maker

Each tank drum is designed and handmade by Nico. From his childhood on Nico has had a great love for discovering, working with his hands, making, creating and Mother Nature. The versatility and dynamism of everything that grows and blooms fascinated him immensely. He was so fascinated by it that he made it his profession by becoming a gardener. Still, the inner voice of creation kept whispering. From the age of 17 Nico intended various markets with homemade dream catchers, jewelery, didgeridoos, flutes and peace pipes. Because of his love for nature, everything was always made from natural or recycled materials.

 

A wide range of self-made works passed by through out the years. Nico justly says about himself: 'If I can see it, I can make it.'  And then, Nico had his first encounter with a tank drum when he was selling his dream cathcers at a market. Immediately he was enchanted by this magical instrument. Once at home he went straight to work and the first tank drum was born, made of 100% recycled material. Nico was so happy with his first 'child' that he spent days with her.

 

Nico has been making these unique tank drums with great success and craftsmanship for years. In the meantime, about 500 have already been sold worldwide. His tank drums can be found in the Netherlands, Germany, Belgium, Spain, Portugal, Poland and (South) America. Sometimes the new owners contact Nico or send a video to show that his 'child' ended up well. That eases Nico.

 

Do you also want to adopt a tank drum? You can, but only if you promise to take good care of it and to play nicely on it. Take a look in the webshop for a drum that feels good. Is there not something that suits you completely? You can also put together a custom made drum with Nico, because if you can see it, Nico can also make it.
