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.

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.

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.
