    Bright and focused tone from dark bubinga wood

    The rich texture of Dios Series' African bubinga drum shells has no equal. Though its color and grain carries a dark visual appearance, its tonal body is bright and focused; projecting with unparalleled attack and volume. This is due to the harder nature of the wood, and heaviness of the shell. Shimmering highs and channeled lows are the hallmark of its character.

    Dios Series drums are fashioned to bridge the gap between time-tested orthodoxy and the latest in percussion technology. Beginning with bubinga from West Africa, these drum shells are thinner in nature to allow the unique tonal character of these exotic hardwoods to truly shine. The eight plies of the shell are cross-laminated in an alternating vertical/horizontal grain pattern. This allows the outer shell to showcase the natural splendor of the wood through a glass-like lacquer finish. The hand-stained inner shell of each drum creates smooth conduit for vibration and sound to travel through, delivering tone that will ignite an almost emotional response every time it is played. Accented further with classic tube-style lugs, die-cast hoops, and a variety of unique setups, Dios Series drums echo the call for a new percussive tradition.

    Cymbals and hardware not included.

    Awesome

    Comments about ddrum Dios Bubinga 5-Piece Shell Pack:

    Totally blown away by this drumset. Finish is impeccable. After installing ambassador reso and aquarian performance II heads(Super Kick II on bass), this kit sounds totally awesome. Tone is unbelievable. The floor tom and bass drum have excellent bottom end with no washy overtones(with dampening rings or moon gel). Tom toms are equally sweet. The snare is nice and deep, although it would probably be better if it was a 14" instead of a 13". It still has an excellent sound and lots of volume. It sounds like a pork pie snare without a dampening ring, with the dampening ring it has that signature wood tone that i like. The hardware is all heavy duty and high quality. I had to chuckle at the included drumsticks. They were made of pine broke in a matter of minutes. Other than that, totally pleased with this shellpack.

    Unbelievable sound and value

    Comments about ddrum Dios Bubinga 5-Piece Shell Pack:

    The press on this kit is 100% for real. Channeled, heart thumping lows of a mahogany kit, piercing high end attack of a birch kit, and warmth and tone of a vintage maple kit; this kit has got it all. Easily on par with Tama starclassic and Sonor bubinga drums and it totally blows away reference series, sq2 maple, dw collectors series, Orion series, etc. for overall sound quality. The finish is gorgeous, the hardware, top notch. All this for a bargain basement price.

    pro kit at a semi pro price

    Comments about ddrum Dios Bubinga 5-Piece Shell Pack:

    I can't begin to heap accolades on ddrum for this magnificent drumkit. It's everything you'd expect from an all bubinga kit; shimmering highs and piercing attack like a birch kit, thunderous lows like mahogany and a warmth like maple. The finish is gorgeous and lustrous and the hardware is definitely pro quality. You could easily slap on a badge like "starclassic", "masterworks" or "SQ2" and command twice the price. For price point, it blows away anything in it's range. For sound, it easily is equal to Starclassic Bubinga and will blow away Reference series and any DW maple shell. I play with a light foot and the 22x20 still sounds like a cannon. The snare is the only "weakness"; it projects like a marching snare at medium to loud and it's perfect for my style but not very articulate at lower sound levels. The toms are the high point with expanded frequency overtones and harmonics across the entire audio range.
