DW

Description

The DW Design Series carries on the brand's custom shop-inspired lineage at price point that was previously unheard of. In addition to new developments and established DW innovations, these drums feature North American maple shells with a wide tonal spectrum with attack, punch and warmth to spare.

The 8-ply tom and kick shells were built with the latest construction technique from DW's shell shop, HVLT. This is not just any shell; it's 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. Design Series snares feature 10-ply HVX shells.

Snares include an artist-approved MAG throw-off and all drums feature True-Pitch tuning rods. Finally, DW's popular F.A.S.T. (Fundamentally Accurately-Sized Toms) drum sizing and Suspension Tom Mount (STM) system will ensure these drums are able to resonantly sing as they're intended.

Each drum is finished in one of three durable lacquer colors and fitted with DW heads by Remo. Add in all of these features and you have a kit that's sure to have drummers talking.

Cymbals and hardware not included.
