SEAMLESS keyboard_arrow_down The metal spinning process improves the raw material metallurgically by realigning the grain structures and repeated passes with the tool work harden the material.
Combine such structural integrity and strength of the shell with it's thinness you'll have a shell that is superior to any welded shell.
More full of tone, projection and resonance!
The difference is in the shell

C-shape™ SHELL

It took two years and today the new c-shape™ metal shell from ds takes a leap forward with the new Aluminium, Brass and Copper.  

The new c-shape™ performances are fabulous.

Designed to have a soft sound on the batter side and maximum sound precision on the snare side. 

The new conical shell increases in thickness towards the snare side also has different bearing edge widths,  shorter on the batter side and wider on the snare side.

A classic beauty

ALUMINUM

Aluminum shells are known for their dry, focused attack.
This unique c-shape™ shell takes those tonal properties to another level.
Shells are not plated and are finished with a light coat of lacquer.
