Deep, resonant tone and visceral attack for players who hunger for more volume.
This 7" x 13" snare drum is decked out with black hardware over a shell made of ash. ddrum introduced Dominion series drums with ash shells when others dismissed it as merely a wood for guitar bodies. Ash provides more volume than maple or birch can produce. Dominion ash drums have been enthusiastically accepted by players who have louder and more aggressive playing styles, and are now a permanent staple in the ddrum family. The snare's vibrant grain has the stunning visual properties of oak, while the latest improvements in finish application and precision bearing-edge cutting allow for maximum output and performance on the road or in the studio.

This snare is powerfull and affordable. I bought thes snare at my local music store and when I heard it I was blown away. The 13x7 has a punch that is undeniable. The stock heads needed to be replaced with Aquarian High Energy batter and Evans reso but thes snare is awesome. It has my approval hands down.
I'm not going to beat around the bush. This snare is spectacular! Seriously... Price +Features= Super Deal.Out the box the only thing that needs to be change are both heads and maybe more sensitive snare (puresounds). Just wouldn't reccomend for Death Metal playing. Trust me DDRUM know what there doing with these snares!
This snare sounded amazing when i bought it..when i knew nothing about drums. over the years that ive been playing, i've developed a taste in sound. And this snare just doesnt cut it. sure, this drum looks AMAZING, and has great features, but it sounds terrible. no matter how ive tuned it, it just doesnt sound right. if i would have spent an extra 25 dollars, i could have laid my hands on a pork pie squealer...dont waste your money on this piece , save up for a better drum.
No doubt about it, this snare is deafening... Which isn't always a bad thing. If you're looking for something that will punch through the rest of the instruments around you and hit the audience directly in the face, this is your snare. But to be honest, I never used mine really. It's loud, yeah, but the tone is just awful, for my taste at least. I play a full Tama kit and my Pork Pie snare will always beat this one out. But hey, give it a shot, it's cheap enough to experiment with, without too much risk.
First off, I bought this guy brand new and got in purple fade the color I wanted). I bought a Power Stroke 3 for batter side and a Clear Ambass. on resonate side. The first thing I noticed play it was how loud it was. I tuned it high and gave the snares some room and man does this bad boy have a nice deep crack! I love it..and I would reccomend it to anybody on a budget and looking for a great quility snare drum.
I've owned this drum for about 7 months now, and it's certainly a good snare drum. It is very loud. The hoops are really nice and of course it looks good. It keeps a very nice crack when mic'ed up. I have no recording experience with this particular drum, but my guess is it would hold up well. My only real complaint about it's sound is it lacks a good tone. It is basicly just a very loud drum, turn the snares off and you'll realize that it's tone isn't too great compared to Tama, Ludwig, and Mapex. Ddrum makes great drums, and the dominion ash series is great for tone and volume, but the snare is the weakest point in the series. I am honestly looking to purchase another snare. For the price though, it's a great drum, for volume and responsivness it also excels, but for more delicate situations try looking into the tama. Tama has always been my favorite snare choice with ddrum's mastery being in entire kits.
Wow! what can I say...If you're a fan of Big Mike Clemons - you're sure to love this snare drum. The construction of this baby is STURDY to say the least, the craftsmanship on it really stands out. Additionally this baby also has a bit of weight attached to it (but it's good weight) by reason of the overall thickness of the ash-wood shell it was made from. It have beautiful, defined low ends, and its recommended that you use it with some hard dry heads (e.g. Evans HD Dry, Genera Dry etc.) because of the power and projection you will get from this one. It has a really nice deep, loud, unmuffled sound that is truly outstanding. The throw-off is smooth like butter, the hardware is excellent (it comes with rubber/plastic bearings - a feature seen on those hi-end kits) This is the perfect snare for you hard hitters, it was made of that...hit hit hit all the way home. I've fallen in love with this snare and it is my favorite, I was impressed with the overall package in comparison with the price. This one is solid - from start to finish.
When this snare arrived, I was pretty excited. The finish, (blue) is very nice. When I sat down to play it, the first thing I noticed was that it is loud. I didn't like the heads that came with it, so I changed them out . At first, I didn't think it had a very good stick response, but after changing the heads I seem to have remedied that. The drum is well constructed, especially for the price. The throw off operates exceptionaly smoothly. I'd recommend this snare to others looking for a good quality snare at a very resonable price.
