Dixon knows quality maple drums are the benchmark of great drum brands. So in order to earn the Artisan badge, our 100% maple drums couldn’t be anything less than a superior instrument. The result is Artisan Maple’s 7-ply, 6.2mm North American maple shell which exceeds industry standards with its warm fat tone, full frequency range, clear projection, and little need for EQ. Artisan Maple are the ideal all-around drums which consistently deliver each and every time.
