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. For years, drum makers have preferred maple for the warm tonal qualities, while Mahogany produces a classic, throwback punch. This DW Shell Pack features North American Maple and African Mahogany shells with 3-ply reinforcement hoops. Maple is a traditional shell material that provides low-end punch, warmth and attack, while mahogany is known for it's warm vintage tones, resonance and versatility. The Collector's Series shell pack toms of the 8-13" range 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).
All drums of this shell pack feature 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.
Note that DW products are not available for further discounting online. For additional information, please call 866-226-2918.
