Drum Workshop DDLG2215 Design Series Drum Shell Kit, 5-Piece

Upgrade your drum game with this all-maple Design Series kit. It sports high-end head construction and suspension for crisp, deep, resonant drum tone.

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 gloss 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.

Tailored for just about every style of music

Design Series 8 inch toms feature a 7-ply HVLT construction, while the snares feature 10-ply HVX, and the 10-18 inch, along with all bass drums, feature 8-ply HVLT construction

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 read more 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 Throw-offs 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.

For the money, this kit can not be beat! This kit gives top of the line, from other drum manufactures a run for the money!! For the price, I would love to see better quality heads on them. ZZOUNDS needs to let buyers know that this kit comes with TWO pillows and velcro patches, to mount them inside the bass drum. As well as memory locks for toms and floor tom legs. Would also like to see all finish options listed! I love the kit, and zzounds.com
