A travel-friendly jazz kit with tone that defies its predecessors.
Peter Erskine approached the DW design team with a novel question,"What if there was a travel kit that didn't sound like a travel kit?" Seems obvious enough, but the minds at DW had never tackled the quandary head-on, as it wasn't a simple task. So they went to work on a kit that was just small enough to be travel-friendly, but also substantial enough to sound like a 'real' drum set should.
After years of R&D and discussion, the sizes were established: a 20" x 12" bass drum with low-mass spurs and lightweight ratchet bass drum mount, an 14" x 11" floor tom with aluminum legs, a traditional 12" x 8" rack tom with an STM mounting system, and a matching 14" x 5" snare drum. The kit also comes standard with True-Pitch tension rods, MAG throw-off, True-Tone snare wires, and DW Heads by Remo.
The kit is offered in two finishes: a durable White Onyx FinishPly and a gloss lacquer Tobacco Burst. As with all Design Series drums, the shells are 100% North American maple with no reinforcement hoops.
