  • Swissinfo article quotes F. Rohner about the question why the instruments are not patented:
    “We can’t do that because we don’t have the money. We can’t control it, so we have to be fast. We’re not here to produce thousands a day but what we can do is sell our know-how,” he said.”

  • Another quote from the article:
    “The new instruments are made of special steel and have a much different sound from the traditional steel drum.
    “We developed a technology with higher rigidity, better geometry and better control of the sound for European ears,” Rohner explained. “We approached scientists, engineers and even philosophers and they formed a circle of people to help us make this revolution.””
