What We Think

Check out this amazing-looking DW Collector's Exotic series 6-piece drum set! A gorgeous Spalted Beech veneer with a Candy Black Burst lacquer and black nickel hardware, this exotic set will command attention on any stage or studio. 

DW pulled out all the stops with the VLT ply configuration, coupled with the cherry tonewood, delivers a recipe for greatness. The cherry offers a beautiful tone that is rich and full with a hint of an exotic sound without the exotic price. The VLT shells deliver a clean note without the typical reinforcing rings giving you a wider tuning range. 

This classic two up and two down configuration set is a prime example of some of their many tone-enhancing innovations and finish options that DW offers. Whether you are using this in the studio or live, you're sure to be inspired by the aesthetic and tonal quality of this set.

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. Cherry is a traditional shell material that provides low-end punch, warmth and attack. This DW Shell Pack features Cherry 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 innerplies. 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.
