Nope, we don't supply Dunnett with these shells.

Oriollo makes their own shells in Europe. Dunnett sources his shells from different manufacturers, some of which are in Asia.

Lugs have nice design and otherwise the look is high-end but those rivets holding the very personal badge are..not. A small detail but caught my eyes right away. How about laser engraving that logo on the shell? That would be classy and you might be the first to do it?

Still good luck for your business!

I really liked the badge with rivets and all. Gave it little bit of a retro look, 50's vibe, and it works great with the lugs. It's a modern looking drum, but not trying too hard to be "the latest new thing". I dig the look a lot!

Thanks, you 2 Finns :)
Frankly, I don't like the rivets too. Wanted to put black, hardly visible, rivets. That was the original idea, but couldn't find appropriate ones, so this is what we have now.
Laser engraving - hardly soon. Etching - possible. Pad printing (like on cymbals) - possible too.

Well, we were selling shells only for some time.
Shells are still our main profit maker, but we're slowly building our name in the snare drum section. Slowly but steadily.
Considering that some serious drum manufacturers love our shells, I'm sure we'll find a place under the sun for our drums as well :)
It just takes time ...

Thanks!
Our snare drums with these shells coming soon.
Although, there are already drums with these shells made by other manufacturers :)

I'm not an endorser and this isn't meant as an advertisement. I ordered my 6.5x14 Phantom on a whim after I saw the video of how the shell was made. It's hands down the best 6.5x14 snare I've played. Thanks Oriollo.

I'm making a video this week. I have a phantom in 5.5. It's amazing. My favorite aluminum I've had so far. :)

Thank you, guys. I'm really glad you're liking them so much!



Maybe I should put a couple of production videos here for easier availability ...

As for buyers of our shells, well maybe in future when we build our brand more, we'll be able to do dual branding with some drum manufacturers.
But for now ... here's one hint, there are some cast bronze drums released recently ... :wink:
