DW 4pc Design Series Frequent Flyer Kit Steel Gray 20"  From DW Drums

Peter Erskine approached the DW design team with a novel question,"What if there was a travel kit that didn't sound like a travel kit?" Seems obvious enough, but the minds at DW had never tackled the quandary head-on, as it wasn't a simple task. So they went to work on a kit that was just small enough to be travel-friendly, but also substantial enough to sound like a 'real' drum set should.

What We Think

DW brings big sound in a small package with Design Series Frequent Flyer set. After years of R&D and discussion with Peter Erskine, the sizes were established: a 20" x 12" bass drum, a 14" x 11" floor tom, a traditional 12" x 8" rack tom with an STM mounting system, and a matching 14" x 5" snare drum. The kit also comes standard with True-Pitch tension rods, MAG throw-off, True-Tone snare wires, and DW Heads by Remo.  Much of the hardware on this set is minimized such as the mini turret lugs, low mass bass drum spurs, and the lightweight ratchet bass drum mount so that this set is easy to transport but also maximizes tone. Looking for an alternative to a jazz set and rock set but do not want to sacrifice sound, check out the Frequent Flyer set from DW.

Manufacturer's Description from DW Drums

DW drew up the Design Series Frequent Flyer Kit to give you a portable drum kit that doesn't sound puny or wimpy. Most portable acoustic drum kits feature a smaller bass drum that just makes the kit sound small. The Frequent Flyer Kit packs a 20" bass drum for the punch and impact of a full-size kit. The secret here is a combination of shallow drum shells and lighter-weight hardware, that all add up to an amazingly compact and transportable kit. Ask any drummer at Sweetwater, and you will hear that the DW Design Series Frequent Flyer Kit is a portable drum set that doesn't sacrifice tone!
