Overview

The DW Performance Series 20” 4-Piece Shell Pack in Gold Sparkle features maple HVX shells, sound aiding hardware and a shimmering finish to deliver stunning sound and style.

Sparkling DW Shell Pack

One of many configuration and finish options, this 4-piece shell pack is part of the popular DW Performance Series.

Constructed from 100% maple using proprietary techniques, this Drum Workshop kit delivers rich resonance and tonal versatility.

The patented Suspension Tom Mount and True-Pitch Tension Rods offer precise tom placement, sustain support and easy tuning to ensure you achieve the exact tone you require.

The stunning Gold Sparkle finish offers a stand out aesthetic to ensure you make an impact in looks as well as sound.

DW Performance Series 20” 4-Piece Shell Pack in Gold Sparkle Configuration:

  • 10” x 8” Rack Tom
  • 12” x 9” Rack Tom
  • 14” x 12” Floor Tom
  • 20” x 16” Bass Drum

Maple Tone

Utilising DW’s proprietary HVX shell technology which involves a precise pattern of long and short plies, this drum kit delivers the ultimate in versatile tone and optimum resonance.

Created by DW executive vice president John Wood and the DW Custom Shell Shop, the HVX process blends grain orientation technology with hand selected North American hard rock maple to deliver low punchy tone, ample resonance and piercing projection.

The grain orientation idea involves alternating the direction of the grain of each ply as it's placed into the mould in order to achieve a shell with strength and shape integrity.
As soon as the shell has finished being baked under pressure it is immediately moved to a pressurized cooler to allow the glue to instantly crystallize to produce a hardened, perfectly cylindrical shell.

All of the shells in this DW Performance kit are made from 8 plies of maple to deliver versatile all-purpose tone filled with even highs and mids and a lusciously warm low-end response.

Ideal for live performance, this DW Performance Gold Sparkle kit not only looks awesome on stage but also delivers full depth of tone and cutting projection to ensure you make an impact.

45 Degree Edges

All of the shells in this DW Drums kit are finished with 45 degree back cut bearing edges to ensure modern, attacking tone.

Patented Tension Rods

Each of the drums in this DW Performance kit come fitted with true-pitch tension rods to provide stronger hold and more precise tuning.

The majority of standard tension rods have one thread every 1.05mm while the true-pitch tuning rods have 1 thread every 0.8mm.

This 20% increase in thread allows the tension rods to achieve more exact and longer lasting tuning across the whole kit to ensure you always achieve the sound you require.

Precise Placement, Strong Sustain

Both rack toms of this DW Performance Gold Sparkle kit are fitted with the patented DW Suspension Tom Mount (STM) to ensure strong support and precise positioning of the toms without restricting their natural resonance.

The STM works by attaching to the rack toms via 4 lug points to prevent direct contact between the shell and the mount, which would detrimentally affect the shells ability to vibrate.

By isolating the mount from the shell, the toms are allowed to vibrate freely to achieve their optimum resonance.

In addition, the STM is free of washers and grommets that could inhibit the lug rod receivers which would cause tuning difficulties and increase tom tone choking.

By avoiding shell restriction and removing problematic parts the STM delivers robust support for reliable tom placement whilst promoting the natural sustain of the drums.

Reliable Remo Heads

The DW Performance shell pack comes fitted with DW Remo USA drumheads as standard to ensure reliable durability and superior sound straight out of the box.

The 20” bass drum has a coated / clear batter head with inlay ring and an Ebony resonant logo vented head, while the toms are fitted with coated / clear batter heads and clear resonant heads.

The DW Remo coated/clear heads feature a predominately clear design that incorporates a coated tone ring to deliver just the right amount of muffling with plenty of resonance.

Each of the heads has crimped flesh hoops to provide maximum vibration and durability.

Gold Standard

Presented in a gorgeous Gold Sparkle finish, this DW Performance drumkit is the epitome of superior style.

Part of the Ultra Durable FinishPly Finishes range, this Gold Sparkle option sits amongst Pewter Sparkle, Chrome Shadow, White Marine and Black Diamond.

Providing a striking flash of golden shimmer, this Gold Sparkle finish features a glittered aesthetic that looks amazing under stage lights.

Offering a smart pop of colour to catch the eye of any audience, these DW drums are adorned with all chrome hardware which perfectly complements the sparkling look of the kit.

Classic Chrome

All shell hardware in the DW Performance series is exclusively chrome to ensure a consistent look across the range.

Adorned with Turret Lugs, which are a scaled down version of the famous DW lug, this DW Gold Sparkle Performance kit has an instantly recognisable look.

Each of the toms are framed with triple flanged 2.3mm graduated counter hoops to provide even hold and consistent tuning.

The 14” floor tom is fitted with DW standard chrome plated steel 21” legs and the bass drum features low mass die-cast claw hooks to ensure a strong, rattle free hold.
