I've heard some who love those drums and others who have had bad experience with bearing edges. In other words, mixed reviews.

I would look elsewhere, I know they have some serious quality control issues. All mass manufactured drums have some problems but D-drum is way off the scale. I would suggest the PDP birch shell series as they have the same "look" that attracted you to the defiants and they have better quality control these days. Also check out the Gretsch Catalina Ash set in liquid black with black hardware. They have great shells, edges, and again the "mod" look of the Defiant series. Also, Mapex M-Birch is a great line of drums, I'm also hearing good things about "Dixon" drums that are essentially Kaman "Gibraltar" drums. They also would appeal to the younger player who desires the "mod" look.

The choices are endless, happy shopping! :D
