A customizable drum kit which represents a pinnacle in boutique-style drum making.
DW's flagship line, the Collector’s Series, are the original US-made custom drums. For years, drum makers have preferred maple and birch for their resonant tonal qualities. Maple is a traditional shell material that provides low-end punch, warmth and attack. This DW Shell Pack features North American Maple shells with 3-ply reinforcement hoops. Toms 8-13" are 6-ply, while 14" and bigger are 7-ply. Bass drums are 7-ply and snare drums are 10-ply (with 6-ply reinforcement hoops).
This shell pack features a floor tom 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. In addition, all toms and kick include X Shell construction which complements VLT technology through a revolutionary, full vertical shell cross-lamination on the innerplies. The result of these two advancements is a tonally massive drum sound and lowered pitch.
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.
Crested by chrome hardware, this shell pack features a 13 x 9" rack tom, a 16 x 16" VLT floor tom and a 24 x 18" kick drum.

Comments about DW Collector's Series 3-Piece Shell Pack with 24" Bass Drum:
DW drums are by far some of the finest that have ever been made. The only down side is when you order or buy sizes beyond the engineered sizes. The Sizes That were specifically designed to exceed expectations in all areas. Those sizes are bass drums up to 22", rack toms in 10" and 12" and floor toms in 14",15",or the maximum 16". They have extremely thin 6ply maple shells and were not designed or made to exceed a 22,12,16" set up! Otherwise they will over resonate and you will have to use two ply heads or external or internal dampening to tone them down. The ideal set is a 20" BD, 10" RT, and a 14" FT. Also because of the bearing edges the snare drums have a high pitch ring to them all. Some like this and some don't...
