Sparkling Style

The first thing that hits you about this DW Performance kit is its stunning Gold Sparkle finish.

Part of the Ultra-Durable FinishPly series, this Gold Sparkle finish offers stand-out style to ensure you make a big visual impact.

Featuring a glitter effect, these DW Drums offer a flash of gold colour to provide an impressive aesthetic.

The shimmering shells are complemented perfectly by the all chrome hardware to deliver a sophisticated look to match the kits stunning sound.

Proprietary Process

Utilising a technique devised by DW vice president John Good and the DW Custom Shop team, these DW Drums are at the cutting edge of drum construction.

DW’s proprietary HVX process uses a combination of the latest grain orientation technology and hand selected North American hard rock maple to deliver shells that offer rich resonance, piercing projection and low, punchy tone.

The grain orientation technique involves a precise pattern of long and short grain plies that are put into the mould with alternating grain direction to produce a strong shell build.

Once in the mould the shell is baked under pressure before being immediately taken out of the oven and placed in a pressurized cooler to allow the glue to crystallize quickly.

The end result is a drum shell that hardens to a perfect cylinder to offer improved tuning and optimum tonal resonance.

Versatile Tone

All of the shells in this 4-piece DW kit are constructed from 8 plies of maple to deliver all-purpose tone capable of covering the most diverse needs.

Known for their even highs and mids combined with warm low tone, maple drums offer full well-rounded sound ideal for a wide variety of styles.

Each shell in the Performance kit is finished with DW 45 degree back cut bearing edges to offer a modern tone filled with attacking projection.

The combination of all maple shells, 45-degree edges and the proprietary process work to deliver a drum kit that offers the cut needed to pierce through on stage as well as the depth of tone desirable for the studio.

From the high-pitched tuning of jazz to the big booming thud of rock, this shell pack has the tuning range to cover whatever style you through at it.

True-Pitch Tuning

Each of the drums in this shell pack come fitted with true-pitch tuning rods to help ensure you achieve your ideal drum sound.

Featuring a patented design, the true-pitch tension rods have a 5mm thread rather than the standard 12/24 thread.

This equates to one thread positioned every 0.8mm on the true-pitch tension rods compared to one thread every 1.05mm on a standard tension rod, which is an increase of 20%.

What this impressive attention to detail means for you is a drum kit that accommodates more exact tuning to allow you to dial in the precise sound you need.

STM System

The 10” and 12” toms of this DW Performance kit are fitted with the patented Suspension Tom Mount to deliver sound aiding support for your rack toms.

The Suspension Tom Mount attaches to the rack toms via 4 lugs points to ensure complete isolation of the shell.

By ensuring the mount and the shell are kept separate the tom is allowed to vibrate freely to achieve its maximum resonance.

Furthermore, the mount reduces choking and aids easy tuning because it does not include any washers or grommets that could inhibit the lug rod receivers.

The result is a tom mount that delivers strong support for your rack tom whilst promoting the natural sustain of the drum.

Classic Chrome

The DW Performance series comes exclusively with all chrome hardware to offer a classic look and consistent style across the range.

Offering an instantly recognisable look, all 4 shells are adorned with Turret Lugs which are a scaled down version of the famous DW lug.

The toms feature chrome triple flanged hoops to offer a versatile sound with 1.6mm weighted hoops on the 10” tom and 2.3mm hoops on the 12” and 16” toms.

The 16” floor tom also comes complete with standard chrome steel 21” legs to offer robust support and the bass drum is fitted with low mass die-cast claw hooks to ensure reliable, rattle free hold.

Remo USA

This Drum Workshop Performance kit comes fitted with DW by Remo USA drumheads.

Offering reliable durability and rich resonant tone straight out of the box, the kit is fitted with specially made DW Coated/Clear heads.

Featuring a predominately clear design, the coated/clear heads incorporate a coated tone ring to provide just the right amount of muffling while still offering plenty of resonance.

All of the drumheads also feature a crimped flesh hoop to ensure maximum vibration and durability.

The bass drum is fitted with a coated/clear batter head with inlay ring and the resonant side has an Ebony resonant logo vented head.

The three toms feature coated/clear batter heads and clear resonant heads.
