New for 2016 - Keystone X - a bold new twist on the classic Ludwig sound.
Rather than merely revisiting the sound that made them famous, Keystone Series Drums carve a new niche in Ludwig's sonic identity. In fusing of their Classic Maple shell core with American Red Oak, Keystone's "pre-EQ'd" tone sculpts focus and articulation for the drummer seeking volume, attack, and power.
Made in the USA
Keystone Series is made under the same strict quality and structural standards as all Classic Maple and Legacy drums. A perfect balance between high-volume cut and subtle articluation is achieved for the live music drummer, putting a modern twist on a century of custom American drum making.
Three-ply Classic Maple core with 1/16" inner and outer plys of American Red Oak.
Keystone's 5-ply combination of a Classic Maple three-ply core between inner and outer 1/16" plys of American Red Oak creates a thin, dense shell that speaks loudly with quick, even decay. To draw further resonance from this unique hybrid, the dual 45-degree bearing edge is pulled to the center of the shell to seat perfectly into the head.
Finish: Arctic Oak - matte lacquered shell (inner and outer)

care in selecting only the finest quality materials for Classic Maple
This process starts with select North American maple. The maple is
cut into panels. The outside panel is 1.8mm thick, two ply, cross
laminated maple. Cross lamination is the process in which the panels are
made of two glued plies of wood, with the grain direction of one ply at
90 degrees in relation to the grain direction of the adjacent ply. The
outside grain runs circumferential with the shell.
The center panel is 2.4 mm thick, three ply, cross-laminated maple.
The middle ply runs circumferential with the shell, and the outer plies
are at 90 degrees. The inside panel is 1.8mm thick, two ply, cross
laminated maple. The inside grain runs circumferential with the shell.
This gives the 7-ply shells a total thickness of 6mm.

From straight-ahead Bop, to Big Band, Fusion, Latin, or even Hard Rock, DW Jazz Series® drums provide a warm, tonal spectrum that is studio-friendly and perfectly suited for live applications. Inspired by the American drum sounds of the late 70’s and early 80’s, the Jazz Series shells feature a thick gumwood core that can be combined with maple, mahogany, or cherry inner and outer plies. Jazz shells can also be customized with any available California Custom Shop finish and drum hardware color.
This is how DW does Jazz.
At the heart of every DW Jazz Series® shell is a thick 3-ply gum core. The soft, porous gumwood offers a warm, round, punchy sound that can be complemented by either the resonant attack of maple or the musical qualities of mahogany or cherry. DW Jazz Series® drums don’t have reinforcement hoops, allowing for a more open, less focused sound.

The Chanela is the result of years of research and work towards an instrument with extraordinarily sensitive snare response while maintaining the rich sound for which DG is known. This cajón includes a specially designed snare mechanism which doubles the number of snare-strings from the standard 4 to up to 8, resulting in breath-taking sensitivity, and the 2.5 mm front-plate is constructed of 5 ultra-thin plies of Baltic birch for unparalleled tone. The strings are tensioned very loosely and are secured with special adhesive tape to eliminate unwanted buzz. Additionally, the entire snare mechanism can be easily removed to facilitate quick and simple string replacement.
