A beautiful eye-catching drum set from DW. DW has emerged as apopular kit for studio as well as stage and these drums are a fine example why. Melodic sound and great projection are what I notice first after this kit was tuned up. Highly recommended.

This is a really great sounding kit.

I really like the wrap on the shells, the Atomic Orange really sticks out!

The tone that you get from these shells is awesome!

Get the snare too to complete the set!

    Quality set at an affordable price!

    The DW performance series is the closest you can get to USA made custom drums without selling your house. Having owned one previously, I can without a doubt say they are the ultimate balance between quality and price. The shells are expertly constructed and allow for a variety of sound, catering to whatever genre suits you. For me, I like my drums to sound punchy, and the performance series can give you tons of punch. While I'm not a big Remo fan, I will admit that the stock heads on the kit fit well and are definitely a good start if you don't feel like swapping heads straight out of the box. The hardware is smooth with no issues in have to replace swivel nuts or tension rods. 10/10 would buy again.

    Great American Made Drums at a reasonable price

    By 

    from Cincinnati, OH

    Staff Reviewer

    Drum Workshop came into the drum marketplace in the 70's and has since become a staple. Known for their high end collectors series custom kits and great pedals/hardware they've become a company that others will be judged as they leave no detail unturned. For many people however, those great Collectors series kits are just a touch out of reach. Enter the Performance series, still great sounding, incredibly well crafted American Made drums but at a pricepoint that's a bit easier to swallow. They are a very well rounded drum featuring a North American Hard Rock maple shell using DW's HVT tevchnology (how they arrange the plies in the shell to optimize the tone by orienting the plies different directions). You could use these for live work as well as recording across a myriad of genres. The exclusive Atomic Orange Sparkle is a really cool and highly durable finish. Sparkles are always cool under stage lights need I say more? The sizes on this kit make it very versatile as well. The 10-12 rack toms can be tuned tight and snappy or a little lower and the 16 floor definitely can provide a solid foundation of thunder if needed, 22" kick is a great utilitarian for all styles. One reason the Performance series is cheaper than the Collectors is that while not compromising quality they simply limit the options available for sizes, colors, shell materials, etc. So this is your chance to get a great American made kit that still stands out from the crowd. A matching snare is available but I'd encourage you to check out any of the DW Collector's Series snare drums to find a great pairing I like the black nickel over brass or copper shell models best personally and find the MAG throw and 3P butt plate is one of the best strainer systems in the business. In short, check these drums out, if you're in the market for a high end kit at a reasonable price, but don't want to sacrifice quality the DW Performance Series should be on your short list.

    This is a stylish and great sounding drum kit! I use it for jamming and performances a like so it is very versatile. Another feature I enjoyed and found particularly satisfying was how easy this set was to tune and get the sounds that I wanted from it.
