    Product Description

    Design Series is a DW kit through and through. From the mini Turret lug, to Remo USA-made Suede ‘outline’ logo heads, to a sleek silver and white badge, its looks are fresh and decidedly familiar. Add to that, custom-inspired features such as durable lacquer finishes, STM (Suspension Tom Mounts), True-Pitch Tuning, MAG throw-off, low-mass die cast claw hooks, and more. These are thicker shells that pack a punch. Incorporating Vertical Low Timbre shell with a horizontal outer ply, Design Series all-maple shells are full, resonant, and responsive.

    Design Series Standard Heads
    DW Design Series drums come standard with a set of heads made specially for DW by Remo. Bass drums feature Clear P3-style batter heads (with inlay ring) and Suede White resonant Logo heads (vented) both made in U.S.A. Snare drums come with Coated Control Sound batter heads (with tuning sequence numbering) and Clear snare side resonant heads. Toms come standard with Clear batter and resonant heads. Crimped flesh hoops provide maximum vibration and durability

    Graduated Counter Hoops
    Design Series are available exclusively with Chrome Standard Triple Flange Hoops to give your drums a great versatile sound. Steel Triple Flange Hoops come in graduated weights (1.6mm for 8 and 10 inch toms, 2.3mm for 12-18 inch toms and snare).

    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.

    DW MAG Snare Throw-off System
    DW Throwoffs Design Series comes with the MAG throw-off finished in Chrome. A purposefully simple design, the MAG is a workhorse drop throw-off with horizontal tension adjustment and smooth, easy-adjust action. It gets its name from a clever magnet that's integrated into the body of the throw-off. When the handle is in the up position, it won’t release without a slight tug. When it does release it throws the strainer completely off the head to avoid any strainer buzz.

    True-Pitch Tuning Rods
    To give drummers even more control over their sound, DW created its patented True-Pitch rod system. The rods feature 5mm threads rather than the 12/24 that’s standard on most other drums. To compare, there is 1 thread every 0.8mm on our True-Pitch rods, versus 1 thread every 1.05mm on most other drums. The result is a more exacting tuning process.

    Floor Tom Legs
    Floor Tom Legs Design Series resonant floor tom legs are 1/2 inch in diameter, 21 inches in length and fabricated in chrome-plated steel.

    Drum Workshop SM991 Single Drum Holder
    Mount your tom easily to your drum set using the DW SM991 clamp (sold separately). The DW DWSM991 is a chrome single ball-type 1/2 inch L-arm that clamps onto most cymbal mount bases via a universal V clamp.

    What is your opinion of this product?
    I got my first ever DW Design drum kit just last week (arrived on a Tuesday) took it out the box (incredible packing job DW does! A 5 piece kit in two boxes) and mounted it on my DW stands that I've had for over 10 years, they're that solid. And I kind of tuned them, but couldn't really 'dig into them' for fear the neighbors would call the cops. So I got a decent, tight sound out of the snare, got the kick (using the included pillows) fairly dialed in as well. The toms have a semi-bright attack and the standard Remo heads are good, for now. Used them in front of a packed house on a Friday night on Cannery Row in downtown Monterey and they kicked ass! A friend who has been coming to see our band FOR YEARS, said that we never sounded better. The drums are made/manufactured in Taiwan. At first I was a bit crestfallen, as we sometimes mistakenly equate off shore manufacturing with poor workmanship. Not this kit. Not by a long shot. This will be one of your best investments as a drummer.

    Overall it's an amazing from start to finish. I love the fact that it accompany the cymbals that were being use in the demo. It's rare that you find that. eventhough the set is American maple it still give that punch sound. Which all drummers like myself perfer.
