Maple HVX Shell
DW Performance snares feature 10 ply HVX construction. This 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.
The DW Performance Drums are custom-inspired, with a unique "propeller" look lug all their own, new badge, logo head and a hand-sprayed specialty lacquer 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, True Pitch™ Tuning, all-new MAG throw-off and DW 45 degree back-cut bearing edges, make these drums sing.
Chrome Standard Triple Flange Hoops give these drums a really versatile sound that suits all types of players from jazz and funk to rock and hip hop. The steel triple flange hoops on this snare are 3.0mm.
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.
DW Performance Series drums come standard with a set of heads made specially for DW by Remo USA. Snare drums come with our Coated Control Sound batter heads (with tuning sequence numbering) and Clear snare side resonant heads.
About DW Drums
Drum Workshop, or DW, Drums have been on the market now for over 30 years. Hailed as the "drummer's choice", DW drums have become the standard against which many others are measured. Both drummers themselves, Don and John began DW in 1972 to create new and innovative products to improve the art of drumming.
"We are always thinking about how to make things a little bit better, we try to respond to that thread that runs through every drummer's soul." John, DW Drums
Now this hugely respected American drum brand has artists the like of Dave Grohl, Aaron Spears (Usher), Neil Pert (Rush), Sheila E (Prince) and Roger Taylor (Queen) on their rosta and are recognised worldwide as a mark of quality.
"Taking a premium brand into a lower pricepoint can be tricky, but DW seems to have got the Performance Series spot on." Rhythm Magazine
"Factory fitted with a Remo CS head, the drum sounded great at lower tunings, very warm and full-bodied, and loads of cut due in part to the 3mm stainless steel counter hoops. When given a bit more tension the drum maintained its character of sound, making it a great all-round snare." Drumscene Magazine
"Combining horizontal, vertical and cross-laminated plies in these shells has created a rich, low-mid timbre drum with added strength and projection. You're getting the best of many worlds with the Performance series drums. This kit is well-balanced, focused,, dynamic and versatile in live or recording environments. I can see them flying out of the door." Drummer Magazine
