Overview

"What if there was a travel kit that didn't sound like a travel kit?" The question seems obvious enough, but the minds at DW had never tackled the quandary head-on. So DW 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 multiple finishes: a durable White Onyx FinishPly and a lacquer Tobacco Burst. As with all Design Series drums, the shells are 100% North American maple with no reinforcement hoops.

Cymbals and hardware sold separately.

      Comments about DW Design Series Frequent Flyer Kit:

      I own Ludwig, Taye & Slingerland drum sets now. I have owned Pearl & Mapex. I've read and watched a lot of videos about DW. I'm 52 years old & have been playing drume since I was 6. I figured I owed it to myself to buy what some say is the best drums made. Although they are not the top of the line DWs, this small kit is by far the "BEST" drums I've ever had the honor of sitting behind and playing! I can't say enough about how easy they tune and the overall sound of this little kit. DW is far above the rest in my opinion. The guys At GC were very helpful with all of the questions I had. In the future I might buy a Performance or Collector's series kit from DW. But I really can't imagine them sounding any better that this Frequent Flyer kit!

      I hope Guitar Center sells other color options like the Matte Black or the Gloss White.

          Comments about DW Design Series Frequent Flyer Kit:

          Everything about this kit is positive. Great DW construction and attention to detail -all there. Stock heads sound decent, however I changed the batter heads to Evans coated G1's and they sound even better. Kept stock bass drum heads and used one part of the two part pillow that is included. I have been playing professionally for almost 40 years and not easy to please, but I am really pleased with this kit.

            Comments about DW Design Series Frequent Flyer Kit:

            I am So Impressed with this New DW Frequent Flyer Kit. I've used these Beautiful, Tobacco Sunburst Drums 5 nights a week for 2 weeks and in every venue they Sounded Great.The Snare,Toms and Kick sound so good! DW's Attention to detail like the new HVLT Shell Construction and Sizes,Very tonally complimentary bearing edges, the Magnetic Snare throw-off,Lighter weight but Super Strong hardware.The Accutune finer thread tension rods reveal pitches between what a standard rod gives you and makes tuning a snap. I have a Variety of Drum Kits and this is already my Favorite.
            Playing a mix of Rock,Reggae,Roots,Funk,Blues,Jazz is very demanding on one Drumset...and yet this kit excels at all of them. The "Bonus" is slightly smaller sizes and a smaller stage footprint without ANY sound sacrifice. Back in the 1950's Ludwig and Slingerland offered a "Taxi cab" 20x12 Bass drum that are rare to find...no need to look because DW rediscovered those magic numbers and used a superior Shell to make a Kick Drum you won't believe! I Love this kit so much that a couple of my other kits are now for sale and at this price I think there may be a second DW Frequent Flyer kit in my future! If you get one, you won't be disappointed.

              Comments about DW Design Series Frequent Flyer Kit:

              I own 3 DW Collectors series kits, a Yamaha Birch kit and a Sonor kit and this DW Frequent Flyer kit can keep up and or surpass my other kits. Easy to transport setup and breakdown. Monster tuning range and a truly amazing kick drum. I cant figure out how they got such a compact kick to sound like a canon but they did...it is just amazing! The snare drum is as good as any snare out there with sensitivity and a great crack. Build quality is outstanding and smart. Hardware is every bit as good as the Collectors series gear. This is the kit Im using for almost all gigs now because it is so easy to set up and break down, Im out the door in 20 minutes flat. I only use the bigger kits on huge stages or outdoor festivals and only for looks. I love the sound of this kit...it puts other bop kits to shame and has moved the bar so far that other manufacturers are going to have to rethink their game. The only thing I would like to see is all aluminum hardware to make the drums even lighter. It's great to be the first one broken down and packed up...it's a whole new experience for me...now I can relax and have a beer while watching the other guys break down for a change...Im not kidding! Ive been playing professionally for over 30 years and this is the best thing to happen to drums in my life time...for you younger guys...save your back now and get this kit, its the best your going find and you'll appreciate it more and more as the years go
              by. Good luck and I hope this helps with your decision to purchase. It is that good!
