DW Performance Series Kit2
This is a DW drumset in every way. No detail has been overlooked, no corners have been cut. Its look and sound are decidedly DW. Custom-inspired, with a new Quarter Turret lug, low mass die-cast claw hook, new badge, logo head, it's designed to get noticed and most importantly, Performance sounds like what you'd expect from DW. Easy to tune, superior sounding HVX shells, along with DW heads by Remo USA, STM™ (Suspension Tom Mounts), True Pitch™ Tuning and DW 45 degree back-cut bearing edges, all make these drums sing.
Performance Series are based on the new technology of DW Shell, developed by guru of drums John Hood and DW Custom Shell Shop in California. By combining advanced technology with the fibers and the North American hard maple, drums HVX Performance series provide excellent low and punchy basic tone, rich resonances and sound projection, ideal for live performances.
Performance Series drums are available exclusively in Chrome. This includes lugs, hoops, STM™, and tom legs. The Performance Series "turret lug" is a scaled-down version of the famous round DW lug, while the snare drums get a unique "propeller" look all their own. Performance Series are available exclusively with Chrome Standard Triple Flange Hoops to give your drums a great versatile sound. Steel Triple Flange Hoops come in graduated weights.
DW’s patented STM™ (suspension tom mount) system allows drums to vibrate freely, allowing maximum resonance while securely holding the drum in place. Because there are no washers or grommets inhibiting the lug rod receiver, choking is reduced and tuning is as easy as ever.
To give drummers even more control over their sound, DW created its patented True-Pitch® rod system. The rods feature 5 mm threads rather than the 12/24 that’s standard on most other drums. The result is a more exacting tuning process.
Performance Series floor toms are available exclusively with our standard Chrome plated Steel 21" legs. DW Performance Series drums come standard with a set of heads made specially for DW by Remo USA. Color: Ebony Stain.
