Crann is a small drumstick manufactory in West-Hungary, founded by George Kovacsics, Drummer. In the aspect of creating a new idea of producing and individualizing products, Crann Drumsticks Corporation is considered to be a startup company. The mission idea is to let the online users decide of their needs and make it possible to create their own drumstick configurations on an online designer platform. This platform is called Crann For You.
The company synchronizes the advantageous possibilities of modern software-controlled machines and the boundless existence of the online world. These components make the continous developement possible.
Despite of production methods limiting the capacity, the company can turn its size into a beneficial factor. Our company runs with 3 staff members only. All of us are responsible for the developing and producing phases. This fact leads the company to a fast and qualitative production.
Beside the high quality standards, the concept of the manufactory is to focus on economical solutions. The drumsticks are made in a small but wisely spaced workshop so that, the area is big enough to manage the customer’s wish in a good order. Since Crann products are available online mostly, the company is not forced to mass production. Crann products are hand selected, pitch and weight paired, hand lacquered, hand sanded, and are not mass-produced. Beside, the precise machining lets us produce as less waste as possible, moreover, it is recycled as a high efficient, compressed heating material of passive houses (read our environmental pocilcy).
Crann Drumsticks Co. runs its manufacturing processes conscientiously and correspondently to the environmental aspects. We do believe that the successful production is in connenction with the effective environmental protection therefore we use green technology only. The purchase of the wood material are from places where the environmentally friendly logging of wood is used.
In the next period we would like to start a drumstick recycling program that aims to recover the broken and used drumsticks on an economical and environmentally friendly way. The program can be attended by anyone who wants to take steps for a greener future.

“Simplicity is Complex. Complicated is problematic.”
I am constantly working on innovative ideas for Crann. My mission is to find how to make signature products in a complex system what is simple and transparent for the users. As a drummer I do lot of inspections how drumming techniques are related to the properties and measurements of drumsticks.
I invented the idea of Crann For You during my conservatory studies at Codarts, Rotterdam. I could not find my perfect pair so I decided to produce my own sticks on an experimental level. After some succesful productions the sticks became popular. Then I started to develop an online drumstick designer platform where drummers can compose their desired custom made sticks.
As a creative member of the Crann team I find it important to be in touch with the customers, so if You have any request or question about the products or the company, feel free to contact me!

“Do your best to make it easy.”
If you run a company, there are plenty of things that has to be done in the background. My work is to manage your orders, and systematize the operations of producing from the beginning to the end. I am also responsible for delivery times and to ensure you getting the right drumsticks. As an agricultural engineer I care about the environmentally friendly production as well. My goal is to find the best way to recycle the loss of wood material and maximize the economic solutions within Crann.
For me, Crann is not just about producing drumsticks. It is more about creating something individual by using the same creativity as art does.

“Engineering is about precision and perfect timing.”
This notion motivates me when I draw the shapes of your custom drumsticks and develop its producing processes.
My goal is to help you find your favourite Crann drumsticks while maintaining the best quality in production. After you composed your Crann For You drumsticks online, I make 2D and 3D plans and write a coordinated kinetic program for the machine what produces your sticks.
Creating the Crann For You system was one of the most exciting missions for me: Make custom products and insert them into series production. I love challenging ideas!
