Drums with heart, Purpleheart to be exact.
VLT (Vertical Low Timbre) Drum Shells
In experimenting with different exotic woods as alternate shell-making materials, DW's Custom Shell Shop discovered that in addition to the different tonal qualities inherent in every unique type of wood, alterations in grain direction can also greatly influence sound. In a VLT shell, the outermost and innermost plies run vertically, rather than a traditionally horizontal configuration. The vertical grain places less tension on the shell, allowing it to vibrate more freely, resulting in the lowered fundamental pitch. It's perfect for those players who prefer a lower overall tone while still maintaining maximum resonance and attack.
- Purpleheart shells built with VLT shells creates perfect blend of attack and fundamental low end
- Rack toms feature DW's patented S.T.M. mounting system
- DW True Hoops and True Pitch rods allow easy, accurate and fast tuning
- Snare fetaures MAG throw-off system and 3-position butt plate
