The Performance Series sounds like what you'd expect from Drum Workshop. No detail has been overlooked, no corners have been cut. Its look and sound are decidedly DW.

  • 9"X12" Rack Tom
  • 14"X16" Floor Tom

Maple HVX Shells
Performance Series offers a brand new shell technology devised by John Good and the DW Custom Shell Shop in California. Combining the latest grain orientation technology and hand-selected North American Hard Rock Maple, Performance Series; proprietary HVX shells deliver a low, punchy fundamental, with ample resonance and projection that is perfectly suited for live applications.

Performance Series 8" Toms feature a 7-ply HVX construction, while the Snares feature 10-ply HVX, and the 10"-16", along with all Bass Drums, feature 8-ply HVX construction.

Hardware
STM™ - Suspension Tom Mount 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. (U.S. Patent #5520083)

Hardware Colors
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 tub-lug look all their own.

Tom Legs
Performance Series drums are available exclusively with DW standard Chrome plated Steel 21" legs.

Hoops
Performance Series are available exclusively with Chrome Standard Triple Flange Hoops to give your drums a great versatile sound.

True-Pitch® Tuning Rods
To give drummers even more control over their sound, DW created its patented True-Pitch® rod system. The rods feature 10/32 threads rather than the 10/24 that’s standard on most other drums. The result is a more exacting tuning process.

Tom Heads
DW Coated/Clear heads by Remo USA come standard on all DW drums and incorporate a coated tone ring for just the right amount of
muffling with plenty of resonance. Crimped flesh hoops provide maximum vibration and durability. (U.S. Patent #5920021)

Comments about Drum Workshop Performance Series 5-Piece Shell Set:

A top of the line drum set all across the board. Definitely one of the best sets you can buy on the market. With incredible tone from the quality of their shell construction, to their bulletproof hardware, this drum set is well above the competition in virtually all areas. A high price tag may make the idea of purchasing this kit a little hard to swallow, however the quality of the drums is unmatched and if taken care of, will last a lifetime. Virtually no negatives to speak of besides the high price and the fact that its only a shell pack and you get no accessories with it. Everything else about the kit is flawless. A truly amazing drum set.

    Comments about Drum Workshop Performance Series 5-Piece Shell Set:

    DW has just recently introduced a new mid-priced professional drum line that's designed as a high-quality but affordable alternative for the multitude of drummer's who desire a real DW kit but can't afford the pricey Collector's series sets. The new HVX design from DW means they have plies that are oriented horizontally, vertically and in an X-shape. HVX shells deliver a low, punchy fundamental, with ample resonance and projection that's perfectly suited for live applications. The toms and bass drums all use 8 plies of North American maple, the snare has a 10-ply design, all have 45 degree bearing edges are the same as on DW's other drums, though these shells are "straight" with no reinforcement rings. The tom shells were pretty thin (just under a 0.25"), which usually results in more low end. All of these are some key features that put this affordable series a few steps closer to the top-of-the-line DWs.

        The DW Performance Series is the best kit I have played. I have played Pearl and Gretsch Renown drums that sounded good. The DW sounds great ! A 22 inch Kick drum, warm, deep toms and a powerful 6.5 inch snare make these drums the perfect set for rock, blues, and fusion. A great set at an affordable price point for the serious drummer. What took me so long ?
