As the heartbeat of your group, you know how important it is for your drums to not only sound incredible, but be strong and sturdy enough to hold up through countless hard-hitting performances. Thankfully, DW is committed to providing drummers of all skill levels and playing styles with drums that are flawless in design right down to the smallest components. The go-to choice of drummers from around the globe since 1972, DW's catalog has everything from boutique-style 3-piece shell packs to 7-piece powerhouses.
For a perfect example of DW's passion for stunning craftsmanship and detail, take a look at DW's Design Series. Consisting of all-maple shells that are both full and responsive, the Design Series is loaded with choices, and the Frequent Flyer Kit is one of their most popular.

Boasting True-Pitch tension rods, MAG throw-off, True-Tone snare wires, and DW Heads by Remo, the Frequent Flyer Kit is a versatile beast that's ideal for both jazz clubs and even symphonies.
While you're at it, check out DW's flagship line, the Collector's Series. The original US-made custom drums, DW offers a wide range of shell packs in this series, and the 5-Piece Lacquer Custom Shell Pack represents everything that makes the DW name so highly respected. Featuring DW's patented STM system that allows drums to vibrate independently, this kit gives players an impressive amount of control. Consisting of 6- and 7-ply tom shells, chrome hardware, suspension tom mounts and more, the Collector's Series 5-Piece Lacquer Custom Shell Pack will have your percussion skills realized the second you start playing.
