OVERVIEW

The innovation and tone you expect from DW drums at a price you don't.

The DW Design Series carries on the brand's custom shop-inspired lineage at price point that was previously unheard of. In addition to new developments and established DW innovations, these drums feature North American maple shells with a wide tonal spectrum with attack, punch and warmth to spare.

The 8-ply tom and kick shells were built with the latest construction technique from DW's shell shop, HVLT. This is not just any shell; it's made with VLT (Vertical Low Timbre) grain orientation with an outer horizontal ply (the H in HVLT) to offer more depth, body and tuning range than the competition. Design Series snares feature 10-ply HVX shells.

Snares include an artist-approved MAG throw-off and all drums feature True-Pitch tuning rods. Finally, DW's popular F.A.S.T. (Fundamentally Accurately-Sized Toms) drum sizing and Suspension Tom Mount (STM) system will ensure these drums are able to resonantly sing as they're intended.

Each drum is finished in one of three durable lacquer colors and fitted with DW heads by Remo. Add in all of these features and you have a kit that's sure to have drummers talking.

Cymbals and hardware not included.

    Comments about Design Series 5-Piece Lacquer Shell Pack with Chrome Hardware:

    If you are thinking about choosing DW drums, get this kit, you will not regret it. I would highly recommend investing in drum cases if you have not already done so. You will also need to buy a DW tom arm to connect to your cymbal stand. I chose the white satin finish because it has such a clean and custom look.

    This Design series includes a very weighted and overall solid snare boasting a professional magnetic throw-off and a massive 10-ply maple body. The snare has a very nice full crack to it; great for cutting through even the loudest guitarists.The toms are deep with very little to no unnecessary resonance, however, they are not flat either. They have a very controlled tone. The kick is so punchy and solid, in fact, it won't move a muscle no matter how hard you hit that kick pedal; it stays in one spot (was an issue with the previous PDP kit I owned). The toms and Kick drum are 8-ply maple. Not only are the drums of spectacular quality, but the hardware is exceptional. The Floor tom legs are all double braced and weighted, the suspension mounts on the rack toms are solid as well. In my opinion DW/PDP make the best hardware out there for the money.

    Overall, this kit really is the whole package and plays like a dream. Whatever finish you choose, make sure you protect your DW drums with cases, I cannot stress that enough. If maintained properly, this kit will last for years to come.

        Comments about Design Series 5-Piece Lacquer Shell Pack with Chrome Hardware:

        I've never been much of a fan of dw mainly because I never though their drums were worth the price and then I saw these dw design series price tag and wondered. Right out of the box I was immediately impressed with the packaging but I could tell very quickly these drums had a lot of love and care put in the musical instrument, the hardware was simple Phenomenal. And it didn't take long to get them tuned up and ready to go and even with stock heads these drums are hands down the best sounding drums I've ever owned. Buy it now the price is very good

            Comments about Design Series 5-Piece Lacquer Shell Pack with Chrome Hardware:

            This is by far the best entry-level kit by any manufacturer. I've owned many kits. Admittedly not many entry-level kits. That being said, this kit is better than most of the pro-level kits I've owned, and very close to others.

            I swapped the batter heads for Aquarian Studio X Texture Coated and Evans EMAD batter and rezo on the bass. I also added the smaller floor tom. I am serious... this kit is studio ready. Everyone in studio and on stage loves the sound. Engineers love me and the result has been outstanding.

            Thanks DW for making this kit!

            • Quick To Come Un-tuned

            Best Uses

              Comments about Design Series 5-Piece Lacquer Shell Pack with Chrome Hardware:

              I've had this kit for about a week now. Upon the un-boxing, you find a snare, and two toms already tuned to perfection. The kick and floor tom still need to be headed. These drums are incredibly easy to tune. I literally slapped the heads on and barely tuned them until the wrinkles were gone. Sounded perfect. Just like DW's. However, my biggest complaint with these drums is that they come untuned extremely quick. About an hour into jamming, the snare comes untuned (in the spot that always comes untuned) but on both the batter and reso side. The claws weren't even touching the hoop right around the bass pedal, and were also loose in one spot on top of the drum. Furthermore, I noticed one loose rod on the top and bottom of my 12" tom. But, they're easy to tune back up, quickly. You just have to very often. Overall, these drums are beautiful, sound great, and are very worth the money. They are a joy to play.

                Comments about Design Series 5-Piece Lacquer Shell Pack with Chrome Hardware:

                I am new to drumming. I've played bass guitar, guitar, and keys all my life. And just recently wanted to start playing drums. After buying an electric drum set with the amp and everything I felt like if I spend that much money on those drums, for that amount I could have bought myself a nice acoustic set, so I returned the electric ones and did a whole bunch of research on drum brands, shells, heads, hardware like everything!! I was down to a PDP Maple Concept drum kit in Walnut, and this DW Design Series set, I even called DW for some help and they were awesome and very helpful. I went for the DW and I am very very happy with the sound, the look, the feel, the quality is there, all of the hardware is nice, they didn't miss anything. The snare sounds amazing once I figured out how to tune it! The stock tom heads sound great, but I will most likley be changing them to even better heads later on.
