2013 DW Drum Kits & Snare Drums

Posted by Maisie . on 21st February 2013

New Drum Kits & Snare Drums.

Let’s take a look what DW has to offer for 2013! Check out the DW & Accessories blog too!

DW 40th Anniversary Drum Kit

Drum Kits.

Design Series.

This year DW are releasing a new entry level drum kit with a street price of around £1,699. The new 'Design’ series beginner drum kit brings a bunch of high-end features to the table that aren’t typically found in entry level models. Each of the toms from the Design series have true pitch tuning and feature the DW suspension mounting system. All of the Design series shells are North American Maple and have been built with DW technology using HVLT shells, a vertical inner ply and a horizontal outer. This new starter drum kit comes complete with DW Remo drum heads and DW’s mini turret lugs. You’re able to buy this DW drum kit as a shell pack of 10”, 12”, 16”, 22” and also have the option of add on drums 8”, 14” and 18”, 22” bass drums. If you’re searching for a new drum kit for a new drummer the DW design drum kit is definitely worth considering!

Collectors Series.

DW have introduced a new series of cherry wood shells available from the DW Collectors series. The cherry wood shells have a fantastic sound, they give you more punch than maple but aren’t as bright as birch. As seen in the video below, one of the finishes available for the new DW Collectors cherry wood drum kits is the beautiful white glass finish.

Snare Drums.

New DW Edge.

The snare drum that’s got everyone talking is the new limited edition DW Edge. This 14” x 6” Edge snare drum has been built in collaboration with Sabian cymbals and there are only going to be 50 made worldwide. The rings on this DW snare dum have been crafted from melted down Sabian cymbals (B20 bronze) that have been played in the past by Sabian artists. The inner shell is made from a unique piece of birch wood which was found by John Good in Moosehead Lake, Maine. This creative snare drum has been finished in antique bronze and comes complete with a new style DW snare drum case.
