What We Think

DW pulled out all the stops on the Classicss Series, utilizing all of their tone-enhancing innovations and options. DW Classics offers a modern solution for those that after the vintage tones of years gone past. These drums feature poplar/mahogany shells with big oversized all-maple reinforcement hoops but a soft bearing edge, giving the drums a dark and punchy tone. The shells are finished in a natural gloss that encases the natural beauty of the mahogany. DW set out to create a drum set series that would be durable enough to take the road while still pleasing vintage fanatics, and they certainly did that with the Classic Series!

Manufacturer's Description from DW

DW's flagship line, the Collector’s Series, are the original US-made custom drums. For years, drum makers have preferred maple for its resonant tonal qualities. Maple is a traditional shell material that provides low-end punch, warmth and attack. This DW Shell Pack features North American Maple shells with 3-ply reinforcement hoops. Toms 8-13" are 6-ply, while 14" and bigger are 7-ply. Bass drums are 7-ply and snare drums are 10-ply (with 6-ply reinforcement hoops).

It also features DW’s patented STM (suspension tom mount) system, which allows drums to vibrate independently, allowing maximum resonance while securely holding the drum in place. Because there are no washers or grommets inhibiting the lug rod receiver, choking is reduced and tuning is as easy as ever. To give drummers even more control over their sound, DW created its patented True-Pitch rod system. The rods feature 5mm threads rather than the 12/24 that’s standard on most other drums. To compare, there is 1 thread every 0.8mm on True-Pitch® rods (about 20% more threads), versus 1 thread every 1.05mm on most other drums. The result is a more exacting tuning process.
