Dave Grohls drum kit?! Yeah, you read it right!

Posted by Maisie . on 18th February 2016

Coming soon... Dave Grohl replica drum kit!

We try not to be biased but Drum Workshop drums (DW) have always been a favourite of ours at drumshop and it's for a few simple reasons... They look super cool, they sound amazing, they can do custom orders and many top, well respected artists proudly sit behind their DW drum kit!

We thought it was about time we got some new DW drums in our North East drum shop and so once NAMM was over, we began to put some extra special orders together! Since then, we have taken delivery of most of the Drum Workshop drum kits and snare drums, but we're just waiting for one more to arrive with us which (in my opinion) is one of the coolest drum kits we've ever ordered!

So, what drum kit is it?!

I contacted the guys at DW to see if they could make up a very special drum kit for us and sure enough the answer was yes! The decision was left in my hands, so I chose to order a drum kit as played by *drum roll*... Dave Grohl! (Pun intended.)

So yeah, we're currently waiting on Dave Grohl's drum kit to come into stock! (hmm well not actually his drum kit but a replica!)

The replica artist drum kit has the exact same custom lacquer finish as the original. The Laser Blue finish looks incredible against the chrome drum fittings and the bass drums black lacquer hoops. Grohl plays the Laser Blue DW drum kit with his band 'Them Crooked Vultures'. Even the drum kit configuration is the same as Grohl's set-up, minus a few alternate/concert toms.

The Drum Workshop drum kit Configuration is as follows;

  • 24" x 16" Bass Drum
  • 13" x 9" Tom
  • 16" x 16" Floor Tom
  • 16" x 18" Floor Tom

Just imagine owning a drum kit the same as the legend that is, Dave Grohl?!
