OVERVIEW

(Open Box) Handcrafted drums to elevate your drumming performance.

With a look that is decidedly DW and a tone to match, the Performance Series exemplifies DW's commitment to handcrafted drums and value. The foundation of this kit, advanced HVX shells, were conceived, designed and constructed by John Good and the DW Custom Shop team in their Oxnard, California shell shop.

The 8-ply HVX shells of this configuration (10-ply snare and kick shells) combine advanced grain orientation technology and hand-selected North American hard rock maple to deliver a low, punchy tone, with lush resonance and projection that's perfectly suited for live applications. Back-cut 45-degree bearing edges reduce shell-to-head contact to increase attack, while Suspension Tom Mounts (STM) collaborate to ensure a longer fundatmental tone.

This Performance Series 5-piece kit is framed by chrome hardware and features classic DW quarter turret lugs and low mass die-cast claw hooks. It is available in a variety of finishes like satin oil, specialty lacquer and FinishPly„¢.

Cymbals, snare and hardware sold separately.

Comments about DW Performance Series 5-Piece Shell Pack:

I purchased this kit in Pewter Sparkle from the sister web company last December, and have had a fair amount of time to get comfortable with it. I also added a 16X14 floor tom, which I ordered separately, and was shipped the wrong color by another dealer. At the time no dealer had the large, Pewter Sparkle floor tom in stock, and after a call and email to DW customer service, they sent a brand new drum out in three days, along with a call tag and shipping label for return of the miscoded/labeled tom I had purchased! I have not seen anything like that level of support from Gretsch, which I played for almost 10 years before, and especially Pearl, whose products I played for nearly 15 years, and had returned different drums under warranty to Nashville for finish peeling four different times. There is a reason so many top level pro and touring drummers play DW, whom I fondly remember from the days of CAMCO in the 1960's and 1970's when I played Slingerland and Rogers. I see absolutely no tuning stability/drift difference between these mini lugs and the larger Collectors Series hardware. The roundness of tone, projection, and punchy-ness at different tunings and tensions speaks well to the shell design and materials, and creates a very versatile kit for many different styles of music. I was tempted to wait the two months for one of the new Gretsch USA-made Brooklyn kits, but after auditioning and looking over these DW's, I couldn't see there would be any advantage, especially since all of my hardware, pedals, and throne are already DW and PDP 900 Series, which are what you want to support those smaller toms and ride/crash cymbals over your bass drum. On stage and under lights, the silver sparkle over black background which forms the Pewter Sparkle finish wrap is as striking and elegant to look at as it is to play and listen to. I seriously doubt I will look at or play another brand in the future; no more imported/unknown origin in my drum shells. While certainly more of an investment than some of the top import kits, this Performance Series is worth every penny and deserves your consideration, regardless of what you think you want to spend on a drum kit and/or your level of proficiency.

      Comments about DW Performance Series 5-Piece Shell Pack:

      I purchased this kit in Tobacco Stain two weeks ago and it looked and sounded fantastic straight out of the box (DW ships the drums with heads installed and tuned). The tone is open and warm with plenty of projection and just the right amount of attack and sustain. I do like the stock heads but haven't tried another head yet. The bass drum has a ton of power, the floor Tom is a monster. I found the 12" tom a bit tricky to tune compared to the 10 & floor. Snare is perfect. Quality of the drums is outstanding, they are DW's through and through. And the sound is quite comparable to the Collector's series without the price tag. An amazing kit for the price.

        Pictures don't do this drum kit justice. The gunmetal grey metallic finish looks amazing. The DW turret lugs and badges are unmatched in coolness by any other brand. And DW is an American company, which gives me even more pride in my owning them.

            I picked up 2 of these kits when I was in the market for a new drum kit. These drums sing right out of the box and sounded even better once I changed out the heads to remo clear emperers over clear ambassadors over the toms and a PS3 on the kick drum. You can tune these drums all over the place and they sound fantastic. These drums destroy the competition in their price point and are a fine investment no matter what kind of music you play. I got the tobacco stain and a Ginger Glass wrapped kit. Love these drums

                I'm new to drums but have played guitar forever. I buy a lot of equipment and I know that you're always better off buying nice stuff. This set is rock solid and will last forever. Every last detail was done right. Sounds great, looks great, well made.

                  Drums sound good,really depend's on what head's you have on them,at the moment i have coated pinstripes on my kit.They are better than the stock heads,i think.My biggest complaint,disappointment is with the bass drum hoops.All photo's show matching hoops.Now dw is sending this kit out with unfinished hoops,just like the much cheaper design series.Contacted dw about this,basically gave me the finger,told me photo's were outdated(even on their website),this is how they come now.Had i known this i would have bought the design series kit,or probably the TAMA kit i started to buy.I think the natural hoops really look cheap.Just a heads up if it matters to you.
