The DDrum D2 Player 5pc Drum Kit is a great kit for new players who want a head start. The D2P took the concepts from the D2R series; the finishes, the black shell hardware and modular mount, then adapted and applied it to the more traditional 5pc drum set. The original D2 sizes and configuration were dressed in a sleek pinstripe finish, the straight stand was swapped for a boom stand, and a Tri-holder bass drum mount was added in alongside. This allows for both rack toms to be mounted over the bass drum, or for the addition of an extra boom as an upgrade. The D2P is the kit for new players who want to stand out and make their entry into drumming.
The D2P features 100 percent basswood shells, which are known for their rich, warm tones, similar to maple or mahogany. However, basswood is a much more affordable wood, which allows for a great sounding kit on a lower budget. This wood is durable enough to withstand hours of practice.
The D2P Drum Kit not only comes with hardware and cymbals, but also with a drum throne, a bass drum pedal and a pair of sticks. This makes it ideal as a first kit, as it allows new players to order a complete kit and play it straight out of the box.
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.
