Product Description

The affordable Drum Workshop DRPF5P Performance Drum Shell Kit is a true set that is Custom-inspired for the look, sound and feel. The Performance Series offers shell technology devised by John Good and the DW Custom Shell Shop in California. Combining 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.

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 a Quarter Turret lug, low mass die-cast claw hook, 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 has included its 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 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 the 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 the 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)

Customer Reviews
5 out of 5 (5 ratings) Rate and Review This Product
zZounds has verified that this customer bought this product from us. "DW Performance Series"
Overall: I bought this kit in Black Diamond Sparkle a couple of weeks ago and all I can still say is WOW! First things first. From the moment I took them out of the box all I could do was admire them for a few minutes before the urge to play them took over. The finish is eye catching and looks great under stage lights. Now to the important part, how do they sound? Right out of the box the factory tuning was good, and with a very small amount of tuning I was able to dial in exactly the sound I wanted. They are incredibly easy to tune and sound GREAT. They are a little on the expensive side, but when paired with zZounds' "Play as You Pay" offer, the financial burden is greatly lessened. Overall I'd say this...They're DW's. You get what you pay for. The quality of construction, the sound, the finish, all combine to give you a set of drums that meet all of your needs and more!!

What Our Customers Are Saying About zZounds "zZounds has proven to me that they have the best customer service and support of any online music store. The first amplifier I received was having some issues. Obviously not zZounds' fault. Could have been faulty from the manufacturer or damaged in shipping. Using the expedited return option I had the replacement amp sitting at my door in less than 48 hours after calling them about it. Just in time for a block of studio time I had set up. zZounds seriously came to the rescue and saved the day on this one." - customer on October 28, 2014
