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.
8-ply HVLT Maple Shells
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.
Triple Flange Hoops and STM Mounting System
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 STM mount system provides rock solid stability while still allowing you to set up the drums anyway you'd like.
MAG Snare Throw-off
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 True Pitch Tension Rods
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.
