I have two Ddrum snare drums; they don 't sound like cardboard shoe boxes and the hardware has held up very well under regular wear and tear. I like the way they look but like the way they sound even more. I'm aware Ddrum had quality issues in the past, but does that mean they'll never get it together?Most of the ones I've tried out sound like cardboard shoe boxes.
They had a very bad rep for flimsy hardware that broke under regular wear and tear.
The look better than they sound.
