About DW Drums
DW Drums began in 1972 when Don Lombardi (now the President of DW Drums) opened a small teaching studio Santa Monica, Calif. The studio was named Drum Workshop and offered both private lessons and monthly workshops. John Good (now DW's Vice President) signed up for lessons at age 17 after seeing an ad for the workshop, in the hope of improving his drumming and removing his bad drumming habits. Don began to realise that he was losing profits from the business and resorted to selling sticks, books and drums to help clear the expenses.
After three months of lessons, John was told by Don that he would not be successful, and instead was hired by Don as a part-time sales manager. The pair would chat for hours, brainstorming ideas and ways to improve drumming as a whole. And from this, the first DW product was born: a height-adjustable trap case seat. At first, the duo was selling about a dozen seats per month, at which point Jon quit his job to work full-time for Don. Soon after, a large order was placed for a hundred of their products, at which point the pair realised that they had created an innovative product that would sell.
Since 1972, DW Drums has progressed to become a worldwide giant in the drumming industry, owning a number of iconic brands including Gretsch, LP Percussion, and more. A range of revolutionary products have been released and changed the way people drum all around the world. "We are always thinking about how to make things a little bit better," John remarks. "We try to respond to that thread that runs through every drummer's soul."

However, the Gear4music extended warranty scheme provides an enhanced service, and is designed to offer a higher level of protection than many 'free' warranties offered by some retailers and manufacturers.

- Collection and delivery costs are included for the first 2 years
- Claim 50% cash back on the cost of the policy after 4 years if it has not been used!
- Warranty is transferable if the item is re-sold
- Loan or replacement equipment will be provided if the product isn't repaired within 30 days
- If an item can not be repaired, a similar alternative product or cash discount (as defined in this policy) will be offered
- The policy can be cancelled within 30 days, and at any time after that for a pro-rata discount
Please note that this extended warranty is currently only available on products sold within the EU or EEA, and is subject to the terms and conditions as detailed on the extended warranty certificate provided.
For customers in outlying areas of the country, the price of the Extended Warranty may be marginally higher, due to the potential for higher collection and redelivery transport costs.
This enhanced warranty is in addition to the standard Gear4music and manufacturer warranty policies, and the Gear4music terms and conditions of trade. No statement or condition of sale contained within these terms affects or restricts your statutory rights as defined under the Consumer Contracts Regulation 2014.
