DW's flagship line, the Collector’s Series, are the original US-made custom drums. DW Collector's Exotic Series 5-piece Shell Pack with 22" kick, 10"-12" Floating Tom, and 16" Floor Tom with 6.5 x 14 Snare - Natural Royal Ebony to Black Fade.
Feast your eyes on this amazing-looking DW Collector's Exotic series 5-piece shell pack! A gorgeous natural lacquer over Royal Ebony veneer along with black nickel hardware, this exotic shell pack will command attention on any stage. The result of more than a decade of DW Custom Shop shell technology, the company's X, VLT, and VLX shell technologies result in drums that sound like more than the sum of their parts. DW pulled out all the stops on the Collector's Series, and this striking shell pack is a prime example of their tone-enhancing innovations and options
DW's flagship line, the Collector’s Series, are the original US-made custom drums. For years, drum makers have preferred maple for its resonant tonal qualities. Maple is a traditional shell material that provides low-end punch, warmth and attack. This DW Shell Pack features Maple shells with 3-ply reinforcement hoops. Toms 8-13" are 6-ply, while 14" and bigger are 7-ply. Bass drums are 7-ply and snare drums are 10-ply (with 6-ply reinforcement hoops).
Enhanced with SSC shell optimization
Each of DW’s grain orientation types VLT, HVLT, VLX, and X has a profound effect on a drum’s fundamental pitch. Fortunately, DW’s Specialized Shell Configuration (SSC) simplifies things for the user. SSC just means that DW selects the best type of shell construction for each drum size in the Collector’s Series Exotic shell pack. The result? Toms sound harmonious across the kit, with plenty of bite and a pure tone.This shell pack features SSC rack toms - a DW special feature which involves arranging grain patterns of shell plies so the outermost and innermost plies run vertically versus the traditional horizontal. This provides less tension on the shell for greater resonance. In addition, the floor tom includes X Shell construction which complements VLT technology through a revolutionary, full vertical shell cross-lamination on the innerplies. The result of these two advancements is a tonally massive drum sound and lowered pitch. Rounding out and refining the low-end of this kit is a kick drum featuring Vertical Low Timbre/Diagonal grain shells (VLX). These shells are the lowest grain orientation available from the DW Custom Shop.
It also features DW’s patented STM (suspension tom mount) system, which allows drums to vibrate independently, 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. 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 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.
