    Great vid JDog. Your playing has a very nice easy feel on that song, and the drums sound impressive.

    Xweasel, you'd be surprised. They are not bad for a couple hundred dollars for both. I'll have to get a sound clip of them. Truly a good deal!

    Thanks for the replies guys. I wanted to post what I had to show how great these drums sound for the money. Yes it does take good tuning, good heads, etc. but I'll be the first to admit that I'm a novice when it comes to this stuff I'm impressed with what most drum companies are putting out these days. Last thought, I tell most students, etc., drum playing is more than just chops and what not, you need to equally spend the time learning how to make your instrument sound good. I'm definately not a chops guy and I have a ton of work to do on solidifying grooves, but the benefit of recording yourself is that you get to hear just how much work you really need

    Anybody play the new ddrum Dios M Series maple kits? I see they're selling them now, and I love the sound of maple, so I'd be interested in hearing how they sound in person...

    My AMX shells are Maple shells with an Ash wrap on the outside ply for the finish. I haven't had the opportunity to play the Dios kits but here's a video of a dude shredding on a Dios Bubinga kit. Note that the engineers claim they only used some eq, compression, etc.,,, my philosophy is decent drums + decent playing (in this case, amazing playing) + GREAT sound engineering = Awesome results.

    Cool looking kit right there..as for sound?? the best way to tell that is acoustically. No mics, no eqs..just straight with your ears in person. I'm sure they are great sounding kits in that arena as well. Awesome finishes! -Les

    I recently purchased a ddrum dominion maple 13x7 blueburst snare drum new on ebay at a steal of a deal. I was going to replace all the lugs with Ego single point tube lugs and tripple flange hoops for more shell resonance. However, the more I played it the more I realized that it was perfect stock. The tone, crack and projection are amazing. when tuned medium it sounds similar to my 14x8 free floater. I absolutely love it!

    I heard from a reliable source that ddrum doesn't actually make their own kits and that they order sets from other no-name companies and slap their name on it, which is apparently why you can't order components after-the-fact... what other companies do they order from? Or is this not true?

    If you want to play the rumor game, that's fine. I just want to figure out if they make their own kits or not.

    My understanding is they somewhat make the drums, ship them to China for assembly and ship them back (Not 100% on where the shells come from, same question though for all other drum companies). My only complaint about ddrum was waiting for a few of my add-ons to arrive. I purchased their 4 piece shell pack (bass, snare, tom, floor tom) and added two more toms and a floor tom. I had to wait about a month for the one tom and floor tom. There were a few dings on the bass drum hoops but other than that, the kit is gorgeous and sounds great to me. 7 piece maple kit, dark satin hardware (not coated mind you), die cast hoops (on all drums), all for under $1,000.

    I'm not 100% if these are the "newer" revisions or not. I did hear about some production problems early on with ddrums and I did order my kit after this. I've only had this kit for a few months? I won't tell you that they are better than a higher end kit. My main purpose in picking one of these up was the fact that, taking drum kits on the road, beats the crap out of them. I'm willing to spend money on a kit that sits in the studio, but I needed a roadworthy kit without breaking the bank. In my opinion, ddrum AMX are a perfect fit for this scenario. As for the snare, to be honest, I haven't messed around with it enough to give you feedback (anyone else?). I have been a fan of Pork Pie snares so I will usually rotate through their different models. If I get some time, I'll mess with the ddrum snare and try to record with it.

    Here's a new video playing a Disturbed cover. Note that the track is a minus track so the only drums you hear are the ddrums (whether that's good or bad!).

    I've actually looked into buying a DDrum set here recently. Would anyone recommend them? A local music shop has a few of the dominion series that look fantastic and at a great price right now and I'm really considering picking them up. Any feedback would be appreciated.
