Overview

No detail has been overlooked, no corners have been cut. Its look and sound are decidedly DW. This custom-inspired DW Performance Series 4-Piece Drum Kit comes with a new Quarter Turret lug, low mass die-cast claw hook, new badge, logo head and your choice of four hand-sprayed Specialty Lacquer or four ultra-durable FinishPly finishes, it's designed to get noticed and most importantly, Performance sounds like what you'd expect from DW. Easy to tune, superior sounding HVX shells, along with DW heads by Remo USA, STM (Suspension Tom Mounts), True Pitch Tuning and 45-degree back-cut bearing edges, all make these drums sing.

The HVX shells used on the Performance Series combine advanced grain orientation technology and hand-selected North American hard rock maple to deliver a low, punchy fundamental, with ample resonance and projection that's perfectly suited for live applications. Performance Series 8" toms feature a 7-ply HVX construction, while the Snares feature 10-ply HVX, and the 10"-16", along with all bass drums, feature 8-ply HVX construction.

Cymbals and hardware not included.

    Comments about DW Performance Series 4-Piece Shell Pack:

    These drums sounded great straight from the box. Minimal tuning was required. The bass drums offers substantial bottom end without losing any tone. The toms sing. They sing so well I actually changed the factory heads for Evens Hydraulic just to dampen them a bit for our sanctuary, (which is quite cavernous). The 6.5" deep snare drum is absolutely perfect for the shell configuration and versatile. The MAG throw-off is a great addition too!

    The tobacco stain is absolutely beautiful to look at - it's always the first thing non-drummers and drummers alike comment on.

    DW nailed it on this one; you are getting more than you pay for with this kit. It's professional equipment at an intermediate price point. Nothing feels cheap, corners don't feel cut, and best yet, it's an American Product - made right here in the good ol' U.S.A.

    I've had the kit for 7 months now and there has been no issues to report.

    Buy the kit.

    Why pay more for average performance?

    By Butch J

    from Cincinnati, Oh

    Comments about DW Performance Series 4-Piece Shell Pack:

    I had a lot of expectations upgrading from the maple PDP LX kit that I've played for the last 5 years and few were met. The drums and hardware are of sturdier make than the PDP kit but as far as tuning goes I ended up with more or less the same sound that I had with the other kit despite trying out 3 different combinations of resonant and batter heads. The snare has an annoying overtone that was very difficult to get rid of. My expectation was that DW drums would sound better but I ended up with something that certainly looks cooler but doesn't sound any better than what I had and my old kit cost half of what I paid for these.

    Outstanding Kit and great value.

    By BILL

    from Chesapeake,VA

    Comments about DW Performance Series 4-Piece Shell Pack:

    I've owned this kit for a week and it's pretty awesome. I've avoided DW for years because I wasn't a fan of the large Camco lugs. The 3/4 turret lugs are definitely cooler looking and less metal against the shell is better for tone and sustain. The drums weren't too difficult to tune, however if you're a heavy snare hitter, it might go out of tune a bit. I was a bit skeptic about the hoops as they aren't the true tune hoops that are optional on the collector's series kits. The standard flanged hoops are strong and durable. The 24" kick is pretty nuts. I haven't changed the tuning and the low end is thunderous. I'll probably experiment with the tuning more but I'm really pleased with the sounds I'm getting now. Overall, I recommend this kit to anyone who gigs or records. It's a great value and definitely a quality product.

    Nice drums not enough size/color option

    By Paul

    from Santa Clarita, CA

    Comments about DW Performance Series 4-Piece Shell Pack:

    These drums are DWs second attempt at a high quality production kit, PDP Platinums were the first try but didnt sell very well. These drums are almost identical to PDP Platinums except for the upgraded hardware and slighty different grain orientation with the outer ply diagonal. Are they worth the price, maybe, they are excellent drums but other companies drum lines in this price range offer tons of more size options like 13 inch rack toms and different depth toms like the Tama Starclassic B/Bs.

        Comments about DW Performance Series 4-Piece Shell Pack:

        I'd had a Tama kit for the last 30 years that I've been gigging on constantly and it just finally was falling apart and getting hard to sound good at all. I'd been drooling over DW for years, and finally broke down and spent the money, and it was SUCH a good move!

        I'd tried the Collector's series before, and they are amazing drums, but the Performance is right up there as well in my opinion. The drums looks amazing on stage with the lights, and the sound is so deep on the toms. I got 10" and 12" racks and a 16" floor, and they just gel together and have amazing tone and boom. The bass drum was perfect right out of the box.

        The drums were fairly easy to tune. I actually got a great sound out of all the stock heads on the drums that I'm leaving those on until they wear down, and I'll put some new better ones on.

        I'm extremely happy that I made the jump, and I'm betting these will last me another 30 years :)

          I HAD TWO SETS OF THE COLLECTOR SERIES AND THE PERFORMANCE SERIES SOUND AS GOOD IF NOT BETTER, THEY DONT HAVE THE INNER UPPER AND LOWER WOOD SUPPORT RINGS THAT THE COLLECTORS DO BUT MOST KITS THESE DAYS DONT, THE ONLY DRAWBACK IS IF YOU WANT TO GET OTHER SIZES, THE ARE LIMITED TO ONLY A FEW, BUT IT'S THE BEST BANG FOR THE BUCK OUT THERE AND TO STAY WITH THE D.W. quality.

          A Great Kit

          By TWS11140

          from Vermont

          About Me Professional Musician

          Comments about DW Performance Series 4-Piece Shell Pack:

          I very recently purchased the DW 4 piece Performance Series drum set. I did not read a lot of thorough reviews on the set so I wanted to share my research and findings. I have been playing drums for 13 years, have a lot of experience playing live, and am currently in a gigging band. First, the set is great. I highly recommend it. I am not going to attempt to explain the sound as that is based on interpretation. I will say however that in my opinion, the set sounds phenomenal.

          Here are the facts:

          The drums are NOW produced in Oxnard, CA. I called DW and verified this. The original sets were constructed in the DW plant in Mexico but the plant was closed and production sent to CA fairly early on. On the inside of each drum is a blue tag that will state where the drum was made. These are mass production kits so inspecting each individual drum may be required to verify production locale.

          The drums are made of North American hard rock maple. The are a very solid construction and the craftsmanship is excellent. DW calls their construction of the drums HVX. This is just an acronym for how the plies are overlapped with opposing grains. I spoke to an expert woodworker and showed him the DW diagram of how the shells are constructed. He stated that DW's method was the very best way to ply a drum or plywood for durability and longevity. However, that doesn't necessarily speak to the actual construction. But, after inspection of the drum itself, it was concluded that the shells are very high quality and construction.

          The sets do not come with hardware but they do come with floor tom legs and bass drum spurs (or at least mine did). The heads that come on the set (DW/Remo's) are a high enough quality but I changed them out. They are single ply with a ring of coating running the outer diameter. The bass drum also comes with tow small pillows inside of it held in by velcro. The finish on my set (Ebony stain) beautiful and flawless.

          For the money (which isn't cheap), the set is awesome. Compared to kits in the similar price range by other manufacturer, this one was the best. I looked at many other drums sets within this price range and am more than confident in my choice. It is professional quality and sound. The set is just about half of a Collector's Series but the quality is not compromised. I would recommend this kit to a serious or professional drummer. It will serve well as a gigging kit or recording. H

          DW Performance Series drums are THE BEST! I played them at my local music store and fell in love. They had to kick me off them otherwise I would have played them all day! These Performance series drums are pretty uch just as good as the Collectors Series if not BETTER! I would highly recomend them to everyone!
