A1 Pro Percussion is proud to announce its the new agent for Allegra drums in Australia
USA made custom drums
Allegra Drums was founded in 1996 by Dave Peterson in Portland, OR. The company enjoys a state of the art reputation with numerous top awards, including successive Snare Drum Olympics competition honors and Drum! Magazine 2011 Best Custom Drum Builder Award.
Dave's knowledge of drum crafting is steeped in a rich history of innovation and design over the years. Dave's initial endeavors with instrument design and evaluation came with brass wind instruments. He went on to integrate these functional elements and principles into percussion instruments when he founded APT (Advanced Percussion Technology) in 1976. Shortly afterward he was contracted by Slingerland to produce marching percussion and hardware. Along with having an exclusive licensing agreement with Fred Gretch, Dave also produced percussion equipment for Pearl and Dynasty. It was in the early 1990's when drum companies were being sold to larger corporations that Dave decided to transform APT to Allegra Drums.
When Dave's love of fishing began to call more loudly, he approached the Young brothers. It was due to their decades of involvement in the music industry and dedication to quality and innovation that Dave felt there was no one better suited to carry on the Allegra Drums legacy.
