DW CELEBRATES 50TH ANNIVERSARY WITH LIMITED EDITION DRUM SET
DW is proud to announce the launch of its Limited-Edition Collector’s Series® 50th Anniversary drum set.
Inspired by John Good’s memories of growing up in Northern Italy, the DW Collector’s Series 50th Anniversary Limited Edition 6-Piece Drum Set features a core of persimmon, a hard tone wood similar to purpleheart that produces thick attack and projection, combined with spruce that boosts warmth and tonality. These 10 PLY HVLT™ shells, handcrafted in DW’s California custom shop, feature a stunning outer veneer of rare, quilted maple, inlaid with a rosewood and maple 50th Anniversary badge and band. The drums are finished in a burnt toast burst lacquer and fitted with antique gold hardware, True-Hoops™, True-Pitch 50™ Tuning, S.T.M (Suspension Tom Mounts) and DW drumheads by Remo® USA.
This pre-configured shell pack includes 8 x 10” and 9 x 12” mounted toms, 12 x 14” and 14 x 16” floor toms, an 18 x 22” kick drum, complemented with a 6.5 x 14” matching 10-ply hybrid persimmon-spruce HVLT™ shell snare, fitted with DW Mag™ Throw-off.
Only 100 of these kits will ever be produced and each includes a certificate of authenticity signed by DW founders Don Lombardi and John Good. In addition, a further 200 à la carte 6.5 x 14” anniversary snare drums will be made for those adding to their snare collections. Advertisement
