Product Description

Full Description

Performance kit- perfect for the stage

This shell pack features 8 ply an 8'' x 7'', 10 x 8" and 12 x 9" rack toms, a 14'' x 12'' and 16'' x 14" floor tom, a 22'' x 18" kick drum and a 14'' x 5.5'' snare drum. When tuned low/medium these shells are ideal for rock, pop and a wide range of other musical genres. When tuned up a bit tighter the HVX shells handle the sharp jazz sound with ease.

Maple HVX shells offer an unmatched tone

The DW Performance Drums feature a brand-new shell technology devised by John Good and the DW Custom Shell Shop in California. DW takes hand-selected North American Hard Rock Maple and uses the latest grain orientation technology to produce HVX shells that deliver low, punchy tones with plenty of resonance and projection. This innovative hybrid makes them perfect for live applications.

All Performance shells are cool tempered which means that once they have been baked under pressure, they are pressurised cooler to ensure that the glue instantly crystalises and the shell hardens to a perfect cylinder. This process greatly increases tuning stability.

DW hardware enhances tone

The DW Performance Drums are custom-inspired, with a new Quarter Turret lug (a scaled-down version of the famous round DW lug), low mass die-cast claw hook, new badge, logo head and ultra-durable FinishPly finish. They're designed to get noticed for all the right reasons. Easy to tune, superior sounding HVX shells, combined with DW heads by Remo USA, STM™ (Suspension Tom Mounts), True Pitch™ Tuning and DW 45 degree back-cut bearing edges, make these drums sing.

Chrome Standard Triple Flange Hoops give these drums a versatile sound that suits all types of players from jazz and funk to rock and hip hop. Steel Triple Flange Hoops come in graduated weights (1.6mm for 8 & 10" toms, 2.3mm for 12-18" toms).

DW’s patented STM™ (suspension tom mount) system allows the drums to vibrate freely, for 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 their 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. Performance Series floor toms also feature chrome plated steel 21" legs for stability and strength.

Remo heads for a great-quality sound

DW Performance Series drums come standard with a set of heads made specially for DW by Remo USA. The bass drums features coated/clear batter heads (with inlay ring) and ebony resonant logo heads (vented).

Toms come standard with coasted/clear batter heads and clear resonant tom heads. The coated/clear heads incorporate a coated tone ring for just the right amount of muffling with plenty of resonance. Crimped flesh hoops provide maximum vibration and durability.

DW Performance Series 14" x 12" Floor Tom, Maple, Black Diamond

The DW Performance Series 14'' x 12'' Floor Tom, Maple, Black Diamond is a highly versatile and distinctly DW floor tom. Made from hand-selected North American maple, it has been constructed by the innovative HVX method - plies placed horizontally, then vertically, then across and repeated - for resonance, projection and a punchy fundamental note. This is accentuated by 45-degree bearing edges that offer plenty of attack.

Part of the included chrome hardware are the True Pitch tension rods, allowing you to explore a broader range of tunings than you can with standard rods. This is due to a higher thread count that allows you to tune in smaller increments rather than large jumps. Finally, in a Black Diamond finish, the drum provides the necessary aesthetic for DW's high-quality craftsmanship and dedication to the drums.
