Ddrum Acoustic Drums At NAMM 2012

We ran across the Ddrum booth in Hall C of the NAMM Show, which has become a bit of an oasis for drum and percussion companies, where Premier, Natal, and Tama are close neighbors. We checked out the company’s new Paladin drum sets, which feature hybrid shells with inner and outer plies of either maple or walnut sandwiched around two plies of poplar. Ddrum calls the resulting warm tone a “vintage blend,” which harkens back to the sounds of the ’60s and ’70s.
