Bright edge with fat bottom!
To create the ddrum Dios Aspen and Bubinga Snare Drum, Ddrum started experimenting with different wood combinations to get a truly unique sound. The winning combination turned out to be outer plies of wood from Aspen trees and inner plies of African bubinga to form their Dios shells.
The outcome is a brighter tone that is full of body due to the aspen plies, and increased bottom end as a result of the bubinga inner plies. But, true to form for any ddrum drum, the look of the Dios snare is what truly sets it apart. This deep 7" x 13" snare is dressed up in ddrum's sparkle lacquer that shimmers on the bandstand.

I play drums for an Irish rock band. I had always played a piccolo but needed some diversity. For the price, this drum cannot be beat. This drum has gotten me more compliments than any other drum I've owned.That said, I can see where the guys who drum for a living would find it limiting. For a cutting, well rounded snare, this one is it. For a single snare that can do everything, expect to pay a lot more.
like the look of this snare , had to tune up tight , has geat pop to the sound could not tune low and thuddy , although carries through the music, not a good all around snare,did change heads right away , not a chance in the world of using the stock heads.if you like the piccalo sound you will love this snare.but any thing else forget it,
Great drum for the money, cuts through the music extremely well. I warn you, this drum is seriously loud! I used to play a 13 x 3 picollo snare and loved the high pitch it had, but for me the drum wasn't loud enough to cut through (I used the drum in a very loud band). This drum has the high pitch I love, with a huge depth/body to the sound. The only advice I'd give is to change the heads that are supplied with the drum - they aren't up to standard. Highly recommended in every other regard though.
Let me start out by saying I love Ddrums products. I own 2 Ddrum kits, a maple kit with 24" Kick, 13" 16" 18" toms and a 6.5 x14 metal snare, which I use for rock gigs, and an Ash pocket kit that I use in the studio, and for club gigs that are more top 40ish. I bought this snare as a side snare, and am very happy with it. I tune it pretty tight and high and use it for hip hop and r&b type stuff, and it's wonderful... I'd recommend it to anyone for this use. However... if you are buying this drum to use as your primary snare.... DON'T. The drum does not have a wide tuning range, in fact it has a very narrow range, and it's pretty much what I described above. I knew this goin in, so I love the drum, but if you're looking for an "all arounder" look elsewhere... I'd hate to see you unhappy with this drum and bad mouth a great company because you didn't know the drums intended use up front. Also replace the heads right away... Ddrum makes some of the worst heads I've ever heard in my life. (but it keeps the cost down, and you wanna use your fave heads anyway, right?)
The Dios Aspen by ddrum is one of my favorite snares. With a Remo powerstroke 3 head it provides a cutting but relatively dry sound with plenty of bite. This is a very warm drum and even when cranked up tight it fails to choke and I have found it very useful for playing modern worship music. It has a flawless finish and a high degree of versitility
I bought this drum two months ago after hearing it in a music store. I was absolutely in love with the tone. after playing it out live in the clubs I will swear to anyone that this drum is no joke, it blends with any setting rock, jazz, funk you name it it sounds absolutely amazing.The only gripe I have is the strainer isn't that smooth, and if thats the only thing wrong with the drum. You can't afford to miss out on this piece of gold any longer
