The DW Collector’s series are the very top of DW’s range, and you can hear in every one of the kits. DW’s flagship range sets the bar for all kits, and every element of this 5-piece is of ultimate quality.
The shells on this DW Collector’s Series 5-piece Shell Pack are crafted of pure Maple. Specifically made from North American Hard Rock Maple, this wood is considered amongst the most desirable on the planet. Maple offers the perfect balance of every element of tone in a drum kit. Maximum resonance, powerful attack and impressive projection. Maple offers a slightly warmer tone than a ‘balanced’ one, which makes it perfectly suited for all genres, and unbelievable versatile. With this kit equipped with reinforcement hoops, the sound is focussed, and highly reliable.
You’ll already know that with kits of this quality, the hardware has to match. The hardware on this DW Collector’s Series Maple 5-piece is some of the very best you’ll find on any kit ever. Every feature is carefully chosen for a specific reason. The drums all take advantage of True Pitch Tension Rods, for example. These rods have roughly 20% more threads than the standard tension rod you would find on most other kits. The benefit of this is that it allows you to tune more precisely, and the angle of the thread prevents the drums from detuning over time. The toms are mounted using the STM, the Suspension Tom Mount. This mount holds the tom around 4 lugs, without touching the lug rod receiver, which prevents choking, and allows the toms to sing freely. Each and every hardware element of this kit matches the standard exemplified above.
If you’re spending this money, it needs to look good. DW know that, and that’s why this finish is as stunning as it is. The Cherry Satin Oil finish scream of quality. It makes a statement, yet is reserved enough for applications where you need it. The perfect balance of unique and gorgeous and yet understated.
