The idea of the Loota drum came into existence in 2011 when I played Cajon on a gig. I fell in love with Cajon’s gorgeous soft sound, but the posture didn’t feel very comfortable for the tall guy. For the next gig, I went on to develop a soft sound drum that can be played quietly and ergonomically better with the back straight. I also considered the idea that the drum can be packed in just one bag and easy to move with it.
At the very first gig Loota attracted a lot of interest, wonder and admiration. At first, the Loota had only two boxes and a pedal, but the development continued. Each version of the drum has been better and more durable than one another. The Loota set also has a cymbal stand and a crasher. Product development has been important to us from the start, because we want to give Loota players a working instrument and a pleasant playing experience. The first Loota was made in 2011 for my own needs, and at that time Loota’s development work began in practice.
2015 The Loota drum was commercialized and the selling of the instrument begun. We have received a lot of valuable feedback from drummers around the world. There has been a lot of praise and also suggestions for improvement. In product development, we have taken into account all wishes and suggestions which players feel will improve the instrument and implement them wherever possible.
