One day Peter Erskine approached the folks at DW with a simple question question, "What if there was a travel kit that didn't sound like a travel kit?"

Seemed obvious enough; after all, we've all struggled with trying to get our kit from point A to point B. For years DW worked hard to create a kit that would be small enough to be travel-friendly, yet still have the warm, large, resonant sound of a full kit. The design team at DW landed on a 12x20" bass drum with low-mass spurs and lightweight ratchet bass drum mount, an 11x14" floor tom with aluminum legs, a traditional 8x12" rack tom with STM mount, and a matching 5x14" snare drum.

What gives these smaller drums their larger than life sound is DW's patented HVLT Design Series Shells. The HVLT is a Vertical Low Timbre shell with a horizontal outer ply. This gives the drums a lower fundamental pitch with enhanced resonance. The horizontal outer play gives these drums a rigid structure with added stability. Crafted from 100% maple; these drums have a warm, resonant, full-bodied tone that can't be beat.

These drums also feature low-mass mini turret lugs hat allow the drum shell to breath freely and become more resonant. The True-Pitch tension rods and triple-flange hoops help keep this drums in tune longer while the DW Heads by Remo give it a sound that is hard to match.

The snare features DW's patented MAG throw-off and three point butt plate.  A purposefully simple design, the MAG is a workhorse drop throw-off with horizontal tension adjustment. It gets its name from a clever magnet that's integrated into the body of the throw-off. When the handle is in the upright position, it won’t release without a slight tug. When it does release, it throws the strainer completely off the head to avoid any strainer buzz. The innovative three-point butt plate, allows you to easily and accurately toggle between 3 different levels of strainer tension. It's also comes with a set of DW Tru-Tone snare wires to give it a true, pure voice and response.

Yet again this is a shell set, which means that cymbals and hardware are not included. You kind find these things in the "Things You'll Need" section.
