What We Think

There's nothing better than having an extra-special, timeless and collectible piece of hand-crafted artwork that also begs to be played. 

The Exotic 45th Anniversary Sycamore veneer selected for the snare was handpicked by DW Executive Vice President and Drum Designer, John Good for the project. DW chose to use hand-selected Norwegian Spruce from the Fiemme Valley in Northern Italy; the very region where wood is responsibly forested for some of the world’s most coveted and valuable orchestral stringed instruments. An intricate center inlay is laser-cut and hand-assembled from exotic woods including Italian Grey Poplar, Black-Dyed Pearwood, and Blue Sapphire-Dyed Koto wood. The classic F-Hole artwork pays tribute to world-renown violin makers, and the Roman numerals commemorate DW’s milestone.

Manufacturer's Description from DW Drums

Each drum is hand-crafted at the DW California Custom Shop using hand-selected Norwegian spruce from the Fiemme Valley in Northern Italy; the very region where wood is responsibly forested for some of the world’s most coveted and valuable orchestral stringed instruments. Four plies of the shell, both inner and outer, are finished in select European sycamore. The face material is crafted from rare, highly-figured, quarter-cut European sycamore exotic veneer, and features a meticulous Natural-to-Candy Black Burst Lacquer Specialty finish. 

An intricate center inlay is laser-cut and hand-assembled from exotic woods including Italian grey oplar, black-dyed pearwood, and blue Sspphire-dyed koto wood. The classic F-Hole artwork pays tribute to world-renown violin makers, and the Roman numerals commemorate DW’s milestone. 

Each instrument is also complemented by DW Custom Shop nickel-plated hardware and a host of drummer-friendly, professional features including True-Hoops™, True-Pitch 50™ Tuning, M.A.G. Throw-Off System with 3P (3 position butt plate), DW Heads by Remo U.S.A and more.
