The DW Performance Series 4 Piece Shell Pack in Chrome Shadow features 8 ply maple shells, sound aiding hardware and a stunning finish to deliver centre stage style.

DW Performance Chrome Shadow

Inspired by custom drums, the DW Performance Series combines striking looks, superb sound and performance ready hardware.

Utilising a proprietary HVX shell system, this DW Performance drum kit delivers the sound you’d expect from DW.

The blend of all maple shells, 45 degree bearing edges and true pitch tuning rods serves to ensure this kit offers superior sound ideal for live performance.

DW Performance Series 4 Piece Shell Pack in Chrome Shadow Configuration:

  • 10” x 8” Rack Tom
  • 12” x 9” Rack Tom
  • 16” x 14” Floor Tom
  • 22” x 18” Bass Drum

North American Maple

DW have developed their own proprietary HVX Shell process which they’ve used in the creation of the DW Performance Series.

Consisting of grain orientation technology which involves alternating the grain of the plies to deliver a stronger more robust shell construction, this HVX process delivers low punchy tone with ample resonance and projection.

The shells of this DW Performance drum kit are constructed from 8 plies of 100% hand selected North American hard rock maple.

Known for its balanced tone across the frequencies with a slightly warmer low-end response, maple offers superb all-purpose tone.

Whether you need the cutting projection to pierce through the mix or want the full low-end power required to add impact to your playing, maple has you covered.

Each of the shells are finished with DW’s 45 degree back cut bearing edges which serve to further enhance the strong projection of the kit.

Delivering powerful punch and piercing projection, this DW Performance kit was made for the stage.

Classy Chrome Shadow

One of 5 finishes in the Ultra-Durable FinishPly range, this Chrome Shadow finish delivers a stunning shimmer of striking blue colour.

The shiny chrome effect of the blue shell finish serves to provide a flashy pop of sparkling colour that will look stunning beneath stage lights.

The rich navy-blue colour and shiny finish are complemented perfectly by the all chrome hardware to add a brilliantly designed aesthetic that screams high-end quality.

Delivering an appearance that’s as impressive as the kits tone, this Chrome Shadow finish is a beautiful choice for the on-stage performer.

Suspension Tom Mounts

Both the 10” and 12” rack toms of this kit are fitted with DW’s patented STM system to provide precise tom placement without jeopardising the tom tone.

The DW suspension tom mount has been specifically designed to allow the drum to vibrate freely.

The mount attaches to the drum via 4 of the turret lugs to provide a strong and reliable hold without having to drill into the shell which would drastically affect the resonance.

This suspension system ensures the shell of the tom is allowed to resonant to its maximum whilst still being held securely in place.

The result is a tom placement you can trust and unimpeded tom tone you can rely on.

True Pitch Tuning Rods

All of the drums in this 4-piece shell pack are fitted with DW’s patented True Pitch Tuning tension rods to deliver more exact, longer lasting tuning.

The True Pitch rods feature 5mm threads rather than the 12/24 rods that come as standard on most drums.

What this means is that there’s 1 thread every 0.8mm on the True Pitch rods compared to 1 thread every 1.05mm on most other rods.

That works out as 20% more thread from a True Pitch Tuning Rod than a standard tension rod.

What that means for drummers is a drum kit that’s easier to tune, stays in tune longer and delivers more consistent tuning.

High-End Hardware

The hardware on all DW Performance drums is available exclusively in chrome.

The shells are adorned with quarter turret lugs which are a scaled down version of the famous round DW lug to provide an instantly recognisable aesthetic.

Each of the toms are fitted with graduated counter hoops to provide a versatile response from the shells. Each hoop is a chrome standard 2.3mm triple flanged.

The 16” floor tom comes complete with standard chrome plated steel 21” legs.

The bass drum features low mass die-cast claw hooks to provide consistent hold and reliable tuning.

All of the shells in this DW Performance kit are fitted with the new DW badge and the bass drum features a logo head.

Head Start

As with all DW drums, the DW Performance Chrome Shadow comes fitted with specially made Remo USA drumheads.

The bass drum has a coated/clear batter head with an inlay ring and has an ebony resonant vented logo head to ensure full punchy sound and a clean aesthetic.

The three toms of this DW shell pack feature coated/clear batter heads and clear resonant heads.

The coated/clear heads are predominantly clear but incorporate a coated tone ring for just the right amount of muffling with plenty of resonance.

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

Designed to make sure you achieve superb tone straight out of the box, these specially designed coated/clear heads have been made to complement the tone of the maple shells.


Combining eye-catching aesthetics with performance stopping sound, the DW Performance Series Chrome Shadow shell pack is the ideal choice for the gigging drummer.

Featuring all maple shells to deliver well-rounded tone, this DW drum kit provides punchy power and superb projection to ensure you achieve cut and depth from your kit sound.

The stunning Chrome Shadow finish adds a pop of shimmering colour that’s sure to make an impact under stage lights.

Add to that the sound aiding Suspension Tom Mounts and True Pitch Tuning Rods and this is a drum kit that exudes quintessential DW style.
