DW

Description

No detail has been overlooked. No corners cut. Its look and sound are custom-inspired. Its value difficult to match. To its makers, the Performance Series exemplifies what it means to be handcrafted by DW. In addition to advanced HVX shell technology devised and constructed by John Good and the DW Custom Shop team in in the USA at their Oxnard, California shop, this Performance Series 5-piece kit is fitted with quarter turret lugs, low mass die-cast claw hooks, and finished in a gorgeous pewter sparkle framed by chrome hardware.

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.
