Maple HVX shells
The DW Performance Drums feature a brand-new shell technology devised by John Good and the DW Custom Shell Shop in California. DW takes hand-selected North American Hard Rock Maple and uses the latest grain orientation technology to produce HVX shells that deliver low, punchy tones with plenty of resonance and projection. This innovative hybrid makes them perfect for live applications.
All Performance shells are cool tempered which means that once they have been baked under pressure, they are pressurised cooler to ensure that the glue instantly crystallises, and the shell hardens to a perfect cylinder. This process greatly increases tuning stability.
An ultra-durable chrome shadow finish provides a shining chrome layer that is extremely resistant from scratches and wear. These finishes are designed to last a substantial amount of time before showing away form of damage or wear.
New quartet turret lugs
The quarter turret lugs are smaller than DW’s standard turret lugs which provide a much smarter aesthetic. These lugs are small enough to avoid blocking any of the stunning chrome shadow finish on the drum shells.
Chrome standard triple flange hoops
The perfectly round hoops are of an extremely high quality and feature a silky-smooth finish with no rough spots along their edges or undersides. These hoops provide a versatile sound that suits all types of players from jazz and funk to rock and hip hop. Steel Triple Flange Hoops come in graduated weights (1.6mm for 8” & 10” toms, 2.3mm for 12”-18” toms).
Remo drum heads
DW Performance Series drums come standard with a set of heads made specially for DW by Remo USA. The bass drums feature coated/clear batter heads (with inlay ring) and ebony resonant logo heads (vented).
Toms come standard with coasted/clear batter heads and clear resonant tom heads. The coated/clear heads incorporate a coated tone ring for just the right amount of muffling with plenty of resonance. Crimped flesh hoops provide maximum vibration and durability.
