The latest DW Design Series drums are a dyed-in-the-wool DW shell pack at a fraction of the cost. It’s loaded with DW trademark features, but it has a unique Design Series spin. This DW Design Series 4-piece kit has newly redesigned mini turret lugs, Remo USA-made Suede “outline” logo heads and stylish silver and white badges. The drums are made of North American maple using DW’s HVLT grain orientation. Design Series drums are perfect for any fan of DW drums. Upgrade your first drum kit, find a roadworthy backup set, or reliable rehearsal setup.
The shell pack is made up of 10x8 and 12x9 rack toms, a thundering 16x14” floor tom and a powerful, punchy 22x18” bass drum. The 8-ply North American maple shell is slightly thicker than other DW shells. The added ply of maple makes them sound even punchier.
The Design Series uses DW’s patented HVLT technology, just like DW’s high-end Collector’s Series. HVLT stands for Horizontal Vertical Low Timbre. This means the outer ply is horizontal, which gives the drums a fundamentally lower note. It comes in handy for drummers playing a lot of different styles and tunings.
All of DW's ingenious design elements are here. The new mini turret lugs are a smaller version of their famous turret lug. The smaller lug shows off even more of the beautiful satin finish these drums come with. The STM (suspension tom mount) system hangs the drum by the lug, taking the weight and strain off of the hoop. This allows the drum to resonate completely without choking the sound. The rubber rings and gaskets help reduce unwanted buzz and metal-on-metal contact. The True Pitch tuning rods have a higher thread count for more accurate tuning.
The Design Series boasts DW by Remo heads, which are designed and made to DW's exacting specifications. The bass drum head features the unique "outline" logo on a classic-looking white suede head. The Remo heads are such high-quality that they're ready to rock right out of the box. On stage or in a session, they sing like any other after-market head.
