DWe can be played as a Pure Maple' acoustic drum set, or as a completely wireless electronic kit. All components come standard to easily convert the kit from acoustic to electronic. Built on a platform of American-made, handcrafted acoustic shells, and a proprietary wireless ecosystem, DWe lets you decide how you want to play given any situation. Be prepared for anything from practicing in your bedroom to playing live on the world's biggest stages, recording in the studio to creating your own content.

Simply sit down and play to connect your drums to your included wireless DrumLink' hub that connects to your computer or audio interface. Set up and tear down has never been easier.
DWe is designed and manufactured in the DW Drums factory in California. Leveraging five decades of American made craftsmanship and innovation, DWe delivers the same premium quality you expect from Drum Workshop. Every DWe e33' shell is constructed of nine-ply Pure North American Hard Rock Maple in a patented 333' shell configuration.
Outfitted with a true bearing edge on each drum and a mylar resonant head, DWe drums produce a subtle, low volume tone for the player to hear the pitch of the shell when played electronically. And each shell is easily converted to a true acoustic DW drum that delivers everything you expect from DW Drums and more.
Electronic innovation is built into every DWe kit with features including a digiMAG snare throw off, pressure sensing cross stick detection and pitch bend capabilities make DWe the most authentic and natural playing electronic kit you have ever experienced. DWe leverages an innovative wireless trigger solution that enables up to 10 zones and 16 velocities per drum, giving you a truly authentic range of dynamics for your playing. The combination of true DW shells mounted with the STM suspension system and graduated hoops make DWe engineered for expression.
Powered by the included DW Soundworks' software, DWe drums connect to your computer through a low-latency wireless connection via the provided DrumLink USB hub. Enabling up to 30 active instruments at a time, the hub also has the capability to convert wireless signals into MIDI data for DW Soundworks or third-party software integration. Using the included RTAP Audio Processor, DWe is easy to setup and control.
DW Soundworks has been designed by DW to deliver a powerful software solution that puts the drummer in control of their sound. With an intuitive, simple interface and advanced controls for those who want to fine tune every detail, DW Soundworks delivers the most authentic experience whether it is powering DWe or being used as a standalone VST.

Proprietary Wireless Technology
DWe features a proprietary wireless protocol called DrumLink which is based on 2.4GHz and is designed exclusively for drums. With its unique ability of only sending small micro packets of data at a time the DrumLink wireless protocol avoids any impact from RF interference.
DWe snare features 5 zones for an expressive playing experience. Additionally, by disengaging the digiMag™ throw-off the snare drum has the ability to switch between 10 sounds - 5 sounds with the throw-off engaged and 5 with the throw-off disengaged.
Play cross-stick naturally with pressure-sensing cross-stick capabilities on your snare drum.
With pressure-sensitive pitch bend on your toms, you can change the pitch of a drum by simply applying pressure to the mesh head.
Dampen the resonance of your toms naturally by using your hand on your mesh heads.
Your DWe kit is compatible with music production software that supports AAX, AU, and VST plug-in formats and functions as a wireless MIDI controller.
Easily connect the DrumLink wireless hub to a any drum module that has a standard MIDI in input to use your drums as a MIDI controller for any module.
