Ddrum was originally a brand of Clavia, makers of the Nord series of keyboards and synthesizers. In 2005 ddrum was sold to Armadillo who expanded the brand from only electronic drums into a wider range of products.

Ddrum is a sister company to Dean guitars and produces drums that fall into one of several series, each following a motif of beginning with the letter “d” and grouped according to quality and materials used in construction. In addition, ddrum is one of several manufacturers that offers customers the ability to customize their own kit from a number of criteria including shell dimensions, finish, and hardware options in what they call the “USA Custom Shop.”

Other snare drums include the Hand Hammered Bronze snare, Birdseye Maple snare, and the solid steel “Grey Ghost” snare drum among many others.
ddrum also produces deccabons, which are similar in concept to octobans, except that there are ten drums in a full set (hence “decca”) as opposed to eight (“octo”). All deccabons are six inches in diameter. They are available with shells made from either clear acrylic or black fiberglass. Drum depths range from 6 inches to 24 inches in 2-inch increments.
Supplies of DDrum kits outside the USA, particularly to the UK, are sparse with long wait times for customers who pre-order kits such as the 7-piece Diablo Death Punx.
Ddrum also makes two different styles of electronic drum triggers, the Pro Acoustic Trigger and more affordable Red Shot Trigger. They also make an electronic drum brain, dd1m.
