The most popular wood for drum making, maple is a hardwood that produces maximum resonance, projection and attack.
In experimenting with different exotic woods as alternate shell making materials, DW's Custom Shell Shop discovered that in addition to the different tonal qualities inherent in every unique type of wood, alterations in grain direction can also greatly influence sound. In a VLT shell, the outermost and innermost plies run vertically, rather than a traditionally horizontal configuration. The vertical grain places less tension on the shell, allowing it to vibrate more freely, resulting in the lowered fundamental pitch. For those players who prefer a lower overall tone while still maintaining maximum resonance and attack, VLT can be ordered as an option on all Collector's Series Pure drums.
This listing is for the drum shell pack only. The stand seen in the photos is sold separately.
This is a brand new kit in it's original boxes. These drums were briefly removed from their packaging for a quick video demo and a photo shoot. The drums heads have slight stick and beater marks due to demo.
