Description

We like to consider ourselves one of DW’s biggest fans. Despite being one of their largest drum manufacturers, you can tell a great deal of care and design that has gone into every one of their kits. The DW Collector's Purpleheart kits in Black Cherry Fade is breathtaking, unique, and seriously mighty, and certainly one of our favourite high-end kits in the store at the moment, and it’s no wonder why.

To some of you, Purpleheart may be a tonewood that is unfamiliar to you, and that wouldn’t surprise us. It is more expensive than many kinds of tonewood due to its wonderfully unique nature, and its tone is certainly an acquired taste; one that we can’t get enough of. Ranked as one of the hardest tonewoods in the world, it is like no other, but to give you a rough idea, it shares some tonal properties between Hickory and Bubinga. The power behind this wood is huge. The attack is strong and powerful, and this wood provides all the low-end punch to carry the tone right through any setting. We particularly love this on the kick drum simply because it’s a sound that’s unrivalled; it is ultra beefy and gives you the heart thumping rumble you don’t often get from acoustic kits. The toms are hugely focussed, and like the kick, have ample attack and plenty of low end. Lending themselves, naturally, to lower tunings, you can achieve a kit sound like no other. However, the tone isn’t the only quality of Purpleheart. It also looks stunning. It offers a remarkable natural purple hue, that, like the tone, is like no other. DW have allowed this natural purple grain to show through their Black Cherry Fade finish to result in a breathtakingly beautiful kit.

The hardware, as you would expect from DW, is of the highest standard and perfectly compliments the already incredible sound of this kit. The toms take advantage of DW’s Suspension Tom Mount, a mount that holds the toms in place with a rubber washer over 4 of the lugs. This means that there is no choking on the tom as they don’t interfere with the shell or the lugs. This innovation remains throughout even the smallest elements of the kit. We particularly love the True-Pitch 50 tension rods. With 50 threads per inch, the True-Pitch 50 tension rods allow you to precisely fine tune your kit and have absolutely no back out from the lug. The result is a genuinely flawless performance from a breathtaking kit.

Topped with DW’s Collector’s series heads which are designed for these very kits, the overall sound is uniform, with each and every element of the kit working tirelessly together to always grant the very best in tone. Maybe you’re starting to see why this is one of our favourite kits here at Wembley Music Centre!
