Handcrafted drums to elevate your drumming performance.
With a look that is decidedly DW and a tone to match, the Performance Series exemplifies DW's commitment to handcrafted drums and value. The foundation of this kit, advanced HVX shells, were conceived, designed and constructed by John Good and the DW Custom Shop team in their Oxnard, California shell shop.
The 8-ply HVX shells of this configuration (10-ply snare and kick shells) combine advanced grain orientation technology and hand-selected North American hard rock maple to deliver a low, punchy tone, with lush resonance and projection that's perfectly suited for live applications. Back-cut 45-degree bearing edges reduce shell-to-head contact to increase attack, while Suspension Tom Mounts (STM) collaborate to ensure a longer fundamental tone.
This Performance Series 5-piece kit is framed by chrome hardware and features classic DW quarter turret lugs and low mass die-cast claw hooks. It is available in a variety of finishes like satin oil, specialty lacquer and FinishPly.
Cymbals, snare and hardware sold separately.
