long lasting drumsticks... since 1985

"You've got a lathe here, can you made us drumsticks?"
Stans, Autumn 1983

This question above was a big explosion in the history of Swiss quality product, which for 33 years has positioned itself as produced in the heart of Europe, and which ambitiously continues to expand its market position.

Two years later (1985) Paul AGNER, being air transport mechanic by trade, founded his small company, which manufactures wood parts. Only small part of its production fell to the share of drumsticks for marching bands, but through cooperation with Heer Music (Schlieren / ZH) 1987 drumsticks was becoming a core product of manufacturing. Tight working with the orchestra, Paul laid the solid foundation for drumsticks manufacturing. Now nothing prevented a successful future.

July 1987, the hotel Postillon (Switzerland) with the first product presentation was made the first breakthrough in the market. At this historic event were presented the first endorsers too. Such professional drummers as Walter Kaiser, Salvatore Celi, Rene Gubelmann und Prof. S. Schmid (professor of music school in Basel), were from the outset a living advertisement of the product and the main "testers" of sticks. They were delighted with drumsticks AGNER.
