This year at the Winter NAMM Show, ddrum brought back its flagship Maple Series: The DIOS. The vintage style series were discontinued in 2012, because ddrum customers didn't quite pick up on this line of drums. These drums have the larger kick drums (24") and with this ddrum goes back to its roots in bigger sized drums with the DIOS. There are also other, smaller configurations available and the DIOS has four finishes that you can choose from.
Felix DeLuna, ddrum's director of marketing and artist relations, shows you the new DIOS line with all the specs and finishes.
The drums are made from North-American maple shells and have bullet tube lugs. The new DIOS series have ddrum's FixPitch mounting system and the bass drums have the brand's Resolifts for added support and decoupling from the floor.
The snare drums You can order a matching snare drum with the finish you choose, in two different sizes: 14x6.5 and 7x13. But the DIOS series officially come with three of ddrum's specialties (check the images with this article):
Hammered Bronze (Bronze shell)
Zebra (North American Maple shell)
Cast Chrome (Cast Steel shell)
