What We Think

There's a reason top drummers play DW drums. It's all about the sound and feel. For decades, DW has tweaked ply shells to find the optimal sound, which has resulted in a variety of shells to meet the variety of needs by today's drummers. DW's newest shell offering, mahogany, is designed to give drummers the best of both worlds: the warmth of vintage drums and resonance and projection. These new shells feature North American Hard Rock maple and African mahogany construction without reinforcing rings combined with the DW VLT (Vertical Low Timbre) shell technology. The result is a very musical shell that does well in the studio and live applications. Combined with the Black Velvet exterior, this set provides the tone of days gone by with the modern build quality that you have come to expect from DW.

Manufacturer's Description from DW Drums

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).

This shell pack features rack toms with Vertical Low Timbre (VLT) - a DW special feature which involves arranging grain patterns of shell plies so the outermost and innermost plies run vertically versus the traditional horizontal. This provides less tension on the shell for greater resonance. In addition, the floor tom includes X Shell construction which complements VLT technology through a revolutionary, full vertical shell cross-lamination on the inner plies. The result of these two advancements is a tonally massive drum sound and lowered pitch. Rounding out and refining the low-end of this kit is a kick drum featuring Vertical Low Timbre/Diagonal grain shells (VLX). These shells are the lowest grain orientation available from the DW Custom Shop.

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.
