Paladin series

Paladin Maple is the perfect mix of woods, allowing the brighter tone of maple and the warmth of poplar to coexist.

When low end and dark tone are called for, Paladin Walnut fits the bill, yet preserves a
wide tuning range.

Reflex series

A first in the drumming world! Much like our experimentation with ash in previous lines, ddrum® has now turned to another tried and true tone-wood, alder! Used in guitars for years, this exceptional wood has a warm and focused tone, almost "naturally equalized". We call it Aldertone®. It makes for a pure and focused drum sound, with smooth overtones and a warm decay.
