DW's Timeless Romanian River Oak Kit, Announced at NAMM 2015

26 January, 2015

Drum Workshop Inc. (DW Drums) Timeless Romaninan River Oak kit is truly something special. The Bog Oak that is being used in the shell construction came from the bottom of a Romanian river and has an estimated carbon date of approximately 1500 years old. Neil Peart of Rush was so inspired by the looks and sounds of this kit that he had his new R40 Tour drum kit constructed of the same wood.

Bog oak is not a species but rather a name that is given to the wood because it has been buried in a peat bog for hundreds or even thousand of years. The oak's exposure to the exceptionally low oxygen conditions of the bog protect it from decay while the iron salts and other minerals react with the tannins in the wood to give it a distinct dark brown to almost black color. Bog Oak can be consider the early stages of fossilization. Since there is such a limited supply of this wood prices are very high for it.

Click Here to purchase DW's Timeless Romanian River Oak Drum Kit.

 

Features on the Timeless Romanian River Oak kit include a Natural Hard Satin finish, Antique Bronze hardware, Lux Leather bass drum hoops, and laser cut badges. DW estimates that they will have enough wood for approximately 70 to 100 shell kits. List price is $12,307.00.

Sizes:

  • 8x10 Tom
  • 9x12 Tom
  • 12x14 Floor
  • 14x16 Floor
  • 18x22 Bass
  • 6.5x14 Snare
