DDrum's story began in Sweden - 1983. It was then, that Hans Nordelius (founder of NORD Keyboards) created the Digital Percussion Plate 1 – the first drum pad allowing for dynamic playing using sampled sounds. Crowned an instant success by the marketplace, Ddrum’s innovative drum pads, heads and hoops quickly garnered a large and loyal following.
2005 saw the beginnings of what would become Ddrum as we know it today when it was sold to Armadillo Enterprises. One of their first decisions was to greatly expand their product line to include acoustic kits, snares, deccabons, hardware and accessories, making them a full line drum company. Long considered an innovator in electronic drums, they built on that history by being the first to use 100 Ash shells for their acoustic kits. They led the way with deeper bass drums at a time when they were traditionally only available through custom drum makers. Their blended shells (maple inner and ash outer ply) were an industry first as was their use of Alder - a wood known for warm tone and punchy attack.
DDrum’s Journeyman series is crafted with basswood plies, which offer great projection and a bright, clean tone. The shell packs come with hardware and a matching snare, which come in three different configurations. Whether you’re an experienced player or just starting to play, you’ll find the Journeyman series to be a solid drum set with exceptional sound.
The Journeyman Rambler features basswood shells, which are known for their rich, warm tones, similar to maple or even mahogany. However, basswood is a much more affordable wood, which allows for a great sounding kit on a lower budget. Basswood is also known for its great projection, making sure you won’t be drowned out by screaming guitar riffs.
