DW's flagship line, the Collector' Series, are the original US-made custom drums. For years, drum makers have preferred maple for its resonant tonal qualities. Maple is a traditional shell material that provides low-end punch, warmth and attack. This DW Shell Pack features North American Maple shells with 3-ply reinforcement hoops. Toms 8-13" are 6-ply, while 14" and bigger are 7-ply. Bass drums are 7-ply and snare drums are 10-ply (with 6-ply reinforcement hoops).
It also features DW' 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' 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.
Crested by chrome hardware, this shell pack features 10 x 8" and 12 x 9" rack toms, a 16 x 14" floor tom and a 22 x 18" X-Shell kick drum.

Comments about DW Collector's Series 4-Piece Shell Pack:
I've been wanting a set of DW drums for a long time and wish I had not waited so long. These drums sound great and tune so easy for a great sound. With the SSC configuration the tone is spot on and the tone step between the toms is perfect. The look is just beautiful and the craftsmanship is stellar. I moved up from their 2006 PDP all Maple drums to the Collector series. The PDPs are good drums but the Collector series are like top of the line italian sports cars. Guitar Center took care of me on my purchase and got these drums shipped to me fast. You won't go wrong with DW or Guitar Center!
