SOUND FIRST. Drum, Hardware and pedals. Made in Italy. Founded 25 years ago by Luca Deorsola in Torino, the company is considered to be the most modern drum kit forge in Europe, at least since the financially strong takeover by the Italian PA-manufacturer FBT. By manufacturing plywoods in-house and producing shells in presses specially tailored for the company, DS sets new standarts in terms of quality, look and sound. With the help of the user-friendly configurator, each custom-kit becomes an unique piece. And all this for a price that will make the competitors fear for its own sake... and for a price that is incredible.
