    Product Description

    The affordable DW Performance drum set is a true DW set which is Custom-inspired for the look, sound and feel. The 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's perfectly suited for live applications.

    Included Shell Sizes

    • 6.5x14 Snare
    • 18x22 Bass Drum
    • 8x10, 9x12 Toms
    • 14x16 Floor Tom
    Performance Series 8 inch Toms feature a 7-ply HVX construction, while the Snares feature 10-ply HVX, and the 10-16 inch, along with all Bass Drums, feature 8-ply HVX construction.

    The Performance series has features such as new Quarter Turret lug, low mass die-cast claw hook, new badge, logo head and ultra-durable FinishPly finishes, it's designed to get noticed and most importantly, Performance sounds like what you'd expect from DW. Easy to tune, superior sounding HVX shells, along with DW heads by Remo USA, STM (Suspension Tom Mounts), True Pitch Tuning and DW 45 degree back-cut bearing edges, all make these drums sing.

    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 propeller look all their own.

    Graduated Counter Hoops
    Performance 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 & 10 inch toms, 2.3mm for 12-18 inch toms, and 3.0mm for snares).

    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)

    DW MAG Snare Throw-off System
    Performance Series comes with the all-new MAG throw-off finished in Chrome. A purposefully simple design, the MAG (U.S. Patent No. 7,902,444) 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 (about 20% more threads), versus 1 thread every 1.05mm on most other drums. The result is a more exacting tuning process.

    Performance Series Standard Heads
    DW Performance Series drums come standard with a set of heads made specially for DW by Remo USA. Bass drums feature Coated/Clear batter heads (with inlay ring) and Ebony resonant Logo heads (vented). Snare drums come with our Coated batter heads (with tuning sequence numbering) and Clear snare side resonant heads. Toms come standard with Coated/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. (U.S. Patent #5920021)

    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.
