DW's flagship line, the Collector's Series, are the original US-made custom drums. For years, drum makers have preferred maple for its resonant tonal qualities. This Collector's Series shell pack features all-cherry drums. Sonically versatile and visually stunning, these 8-ply shells offer a punchy, warm tonality with plenty of resonance and high-end bite.
This drums features HVLT shells made made with VLT (Vertical Low Timbre) grain orientation with an outer horizontal ply (the H in HVLT) to offer more depth, body and tuning range than the competition. This creates less tension on the shell to provide an overall lower note. The difference with HVLT™ is that the outer poly is horizontal. With more tension on the shell, it offers slightly more low-midrange frequencies.
It also features DW's patented STM (suspension tom mount) system, which allows drums to vibrate independently, allowing maximum resonance while securely holding the drum in place. Because there are no washers or grommets inhibiting the lug rod receiver, choking is reduced and tuning is as easy as ever.
To give drummers even more control over their sound, DW created its patented True-Pitch rod system. The rods feature 5mm threads rather than the 12/24 that's standard on most other drums. To compare, there is 1 thread every 0.8mm on True-Pitch rods (about 20% more threads), versus 1 thread every 1.05mm on most other drums. The result is a more exacting tuning process.
Snare drum, cymbals and hardware sold separately.
