This kit delivers DW quality at a fraction of the price. With such high-end features as HVLT shells, mini-turret lugs, lacquer finishes, triple-flange hoops.

DW has managed to do it again. The industry giant has released another kit designed to give you pro quality at a fraction of the cost. Not unlike the performance series; these drum are warm with a full, resonant sound that is sure to make drummers and engineers a like chartreus with envy.

The Design Series may have a lower than usual price tag on it but let us assure you, this thing is no joke! This kit features 8-ply HVLT maple shells, low-mass mini turret lugs, triple-flange hoops, MAG throw-offs, true pitch tension rods, and STM mounting system. As if all this wasn’t enough, this kit also comes stock with Remo heads to give you the best possible sound right out of the box.


These newly developed HVLT shells are truly something special. As we all know VLT stands for “Vertical Low Timbre”. This means that all of the plies have the grain of the wood running in a vertical pattern; this gives the drum a lower fundamental pitch while still being sharp and resonant. The HVLT is simply a VLT shell with the last outer ply running horizontally. This makes for a rigid, sturdy shell with added projection. Perfect for live or studio use, these drums have a true tone that’s sure to bring a new life to your next recording or get people moving on the dance floor.


Let’s start with the mini-turret lugs, these beauties were designed for the designer. These low-mass lugs are an exact replica of the turret lugs you’d find on the collector’s series, except at a quarter of the size. This helps eliminate putting any unnecessary weight on the shell; giving you a truer, more open tone with added resonance. The triple-flange hoops are a bit livelier than their die-cast counter parts, giving you a more vibrant sound out of your drums. The MAG throw-off gives you precise and accurate snare tension while being unbelievably reliable. This throw off features a magnetic switch that guarantees it will stand up to the heaviest hitters and only come undone when you want it to. DW’s true pitch tension rods are another modern miracle in innovation. These non-slip screws guarantee that once you get the drum to where you like it, it’ll stay there. No more pesky tuning between songs at gigs. The STM mount system provides rock solid stability while still allowing you to set up the drums anyway you’d like. Sizes are…

simply the best


this is by far one of my favorite drum kits out there!. The white satin finish is unbelievable underneath stage lights. You will get nothing but compliments on this drum kit. I found that using powerstroke 4 coated heads are the best for these shells. You can use any choice of heads .its an affordable dw drum set with unmatchable comes in several colors and has triple flange hoops that comes stock .I wish it came in satin black, but white is the way to go.
