Ddrum - with the first D standing for digital - has returned to its roots in 2014 and puts focus on hybrid drummers, who incorporate both acoustic and electronic sounds in their set-up. Felix Deluna, who handles Artist Relations for Ddrum, shows what's new for 2014 at the Winter NAMM Show in Anaheim, California.
Ddrum is manufacturer of electronic percussion triggers as well as a new generation of acoustic percussive instruments.
Ddrum was originally a brand of Clavia, makers of the Nord series of keyboards plus electronic drum triggers since 1983.
In 2005 Ddrum was sold to Armadillo Enterprises, Inc. (the same company that owns Dean Guitars), who expanded the brand from only electronic drums into a wider range of products.
Now based in Tampa, Florida Ddrum is exceeding drummers' needs for high-quality, affordable gear with a versatile, musical, resonant and beautiful acoustic drum selection.
