The DW Collector’s Series is the original American Made custom drum set. This kits consists of a 22x18" Bass Drum, 16x18" Floor Tom, 12x9" and 10x8" Rack Toms and a 14x5.5" Snare.

DW's flagship line, the Collector's Series, are the original American-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 also 7-ply.

All shells are selected with the "Timbre Matching" process. Each shell is analysed with respect to its fundamental tone and combined to a well sounding "tuned" set.

Vertical Low Timbre

This shell pack features mounted 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 features 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). VLX shells are the lowest grain orientation available from the DW Custom Shop.

Suspension Tom Mount System

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.

True-Pitch Rod System

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.
