OVERVIEW

Customizable drums that represent a pinnacle in boutique-style drum making.

DW's flagship line, the Collector's Series, are the original US-made custom drums. Birch is a classic shell material known and prized for its studio performance. Birch offers powerful attack, focused mids and quick resonance. This DW shell pack features North American birch shells with 3-ply reinforcement hoops. Toms 8-13" are 8-ply, while 14" and bigger are 7-ply. Bass drums are also 7-ply.

This shell pack features shells with Vertical Low Timbre (VLT) - a DW special feature which involves arranging grain patterns of shell plies so the outermost and innermost plies run vertically versus the traditional horizontal. This provides less tension on the shell for greater resonance.

It also features DW's patented STM (suspension tom mount) system, which allows drums to vibrate independently, allowing maximum resonance while securely holding the drum in place. Because there are no washers or grommets inhibiting the lug rod receiver, choking is reduced and tuning is as easy as ever. To give drummers even more control over their sound, DW created its patented True-Pitch rod system. The rods feature 5mm threads rather than the 12/24 that's standard on most other drums. To compare, there is 1 thread every 0.8mm on True-Pitch rods (about 20% more threads), versus 1 thread every 1.05mm on most other drums. The result is a more exacting tuning process.

Snare drum, cymbals and hardware sold separately.
