Over four decades ago Hannu Saari started his career as a carpenter and almost as long ago he started to play drums. Over the years Hannu noticed that drums he played were not exactly as he liked. They didn't sound or look as he wanted. The idea started to evolve that some day he will make his own drums and they will be exactly the way he wanted them to be. He started to experience with different wood materials and make his own essential tools to turn wood into drums. Now almost two decades after the first demo models the other drummers can also enjoy the unique sound and looks of the Saari drums.

Saari drums are evolving all the time, not just by Hannu's new innovations but to satisfy the needs of the fellow drummers in an ever growing drumming community.
