    DW provides drummers with yet another sonic option, while at the same time utilizing renewable resources—that's Eco-X.

    This DW Eco-X 5-piece drum shell pack not only satisfies drummer's needs with its huge sound, and full frequency range, but it also satisfies our need to be environmentally conscious. The unique, US-made hybrid bamboo/birch shells provide increased high-end attack, while DW's X Shell technology offers unprecedented low-end response. They are big, full-sounding drums with a huge fundamental, and all of the warmth, resonance, and attack that Collector's Series drums are known for. Plus, DW drummer-friendly features such as True Pitch Tuning, STM (Suspension Tom Mounts), Proportional Counter Hoops and DW Heads by Remo USA all come standard. It's a giant leap forward in shell technology and everyone wins!

    Making drum shells sound better is what DW does best. The X Shell technology all started with DW's foray into VLT, or Vertical Low Timbre Technology. They found that in experimenting with alternate ways to cross-laminate a shell, the tension on the shell could be greatly decreased if the majority of plies were run vertically, rather than horizontally. Just like a guitar string, the tighter it gets, the higher in pitch it goes.

    Drum shells must be cross-laminated for strength, so the idea of designing a completely vertical shell to achieve optimal low frequencies was never an option, until now—enter X Shells. The concept was derived from DW's popular line of VGE (Vertical Grain Exotics). DW had been laminating veneer in a diagonal orientation for a while, but had never considered the sonic benefits until Master Drum Designer John Good proposed it, "If we can mimic the effect of a complete VLT shell, we'll have created the lowest sounding drum ever." The first prototype was made and the result was a home run. Exactly what Mr. Good had anticipated, big, full-sounding drums with a huge fundamental, and all of the warmth, resonance, and attack that DW Collector's Series drums are known for.

    Cymbals and hardware not included. Note that DW products are not available for further discounting online. For additional information, please call 866-226-2918.

    Comments about DW Eco-X 5-Piece Shell Pack:

    I thought my Pearl Vision SST drums were a nice set of drums, until I played these DW drums. They are the best set of drums I've ever played. The playability was remarkable. Playing these drum's made me sound like a remarkable drummer.I'm trying to find a way to get these drums. I even concidered selling my truck to get these drums.

    A great set of drums, just what you would expect from DW

    Comments about DW Eco-X 5-Piece Shell Pack:

    These are great drums. They have "the DW sound", that is for sure. I use these drums in my project studio and you wouldn't believe the drum sound I get. It is absolutely huge! Some will argue that DW makes the best drums. I believe there are many great drum companies out there and DW happens to be one of them. They have a very distinct sound so they may not be for everybody. If you love fat, deep and punchy sounds that are well suited for rock, you cannot go wrong with DW. Don't let the birch/bamboo shell fool you. The depth and resonance of the sound due to the X shells is unbelievable. They are a bit expensive but are definitely worth it!
    The only thing holding these drums back on features is the limited sizes available. It shouldn't prevent anyone from putting together a set that suits them well. There just aren't as many options compared to the Collectors Series.
