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.

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.

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)
