The Paladin mixes the classic voice of maple with the focus of poplar.
A perfect mix of tone woods, the Paladin Maple 6-Piece High Boy Shell Pack by ddrum balances the rich warmth of maple and the bright attack of poplar to seamlessly coexist. The full voice of maple is enhanced with limited edition 4-ply tom shells for maximum resonance, and 8-ply Vintageblend maple/popar bass and snare drum shells.
The High Boy takes the elements of the Uptown and pairs them two stair stepping toms for an even fill from top to bottom. An 22 x 18" kick drum provides punch and low end and is fitted with ddrum's patented Resolifts for unimpeded resonance. The depth of the kick is contrasted by the full-bodied crack of a 14 x 6-1/2" snare drum.
The drum hardware features brawny 2.3mm steel hoops and stylish "faceoff" style lugs. Fixtpitch suspension mounts deliver lasting resonance, while matching bass drum hoops provide a consistent aesthetic.
