DW Announces New Design Series

25 January, 2013

NAMM 2013, DW Drums announces the launch of their new line of drums called the Design Series. These drums feature a North American Maple HVLT shell, Tabacco Burst, Cherry and White Satin Lacquer Finishes. A 5 pc shell pack can be purchaseed for under $1500.00


The All-New Design Series Comes from a Long Line of World-Class Drum sets

Years of drum set making experience and expertise went into developing this brand new line of drums. Case in point, Design’s North American Maple 8-ply shell with our newest HVLT technology. This is not just any shell; it’s made with VLT (Vertical Low Timbre) grain orientation with an outer horizontal ply to offer more depth, body and tuning range than the competition. Each drum is finished in one of three durable lacquer colors and outfitted with a newly-designed low mass ‘mini turret lug’. Snares include our artist-approved MAG throw-off and all drums feature True Pitch Tuning™ and DW heads by Remo. Add to that a selection of our most popular F.A.S.T. (Fundamentally Accurately-Sized Toms) sizes and our STM mounting system and you have a kit that’s sure to have drummers talking.
