The Collector’s Series is DW’s flagship line and has been impressing drummers the world over and it's very easy to see why. The DW Collector’s Series Satin Oil 4 Piece Shell Pack is a quite spectacular set of custom drums that offers a unique and distinctive sound and a stunningly beautiful look. Each highly resonant, tonally balanced shell is expertly crafted from 8-plies of select, responsibly resourced Cherry - a dense exotic tonewood that brings a dark and powerful musical foundation and an amazing tonal spectrum to the table. This shell pack comprises of a 10 x 8” rack tom, 12 x 9” rack tom, 16 x 14" floor tom and a 22 x 18” bass drum.
These awesome shells are constructed using DW’s Specialised Shell Configuration process; the layers of ply are stacked in order according to their grain orientation, which in turn is devised by what kind of tone is required. By altering the grain directions of each layer, various tones can be harnessed and imbued into the kit. This means that each drum is carefully constructed using the SSC process to create a full kit that completely covers a vast sonic spectrum. The SSC process also provides a great level of structural integrity to the shell, ensuring its tuning stability and providing great durability.
DW’s TrueHoop features an innovative rim design that provides the ideal contact between head and hoop to produce the best possible tone and tuning functionality. TrueHoops are gauged in graduated thicknesses to match their intended drum sizes - 8" and 10" diameter drums are fitted with 1.6mm True Hoops while 12"-18" diameter drums come with 2.3mm. This helps to harmonise the kits overall balance of tone and projection. Super-strong and perfectly round and flat, this brilliant hoop features a fully rounded outer edge that offers comfort and is easier on the eye - and the stick.
Each mounted tom features DW’s patented Suspension Tom Mount (STM). This low-contact suspension mount is designed to allow the drum to vibrate fully and virtually eliminate any choke. Each tom is allowed total freedom to resonate whilst being held safely and securely - the STM design is satisfyingly sturdy.
These sublime shells come furnished with some very attractive and sophisticated chrome hardware. The floor tom is supported by robust leg brackets with incorporated memory locks and all shells feature the iconic DW “Turret” lug design - the instantly recognisable emblem of top-quality. Each of these amazing drums also utilises DW’s patented True-Pitch tuning rod system. These tension rods feature 5mm threads as opposed to the standard 12/24 that are featured on most other drums. With approx. 20% more threads than standard, the True-Pitch rod offers superior tuning stability.
The DW Collector’s Series Satin Oil 4 Piece Shell Pack is a special collection of exquisite drums that display the highest degree of quality on every level. And you’ll be entranced by this kit’s Natural Over Cherry finish - a warm lacquer that brings out the beautiful grain of the Cherry wood.
