Review DW Design Series Clear Acrylic 5-piece Kit

These drums have exceeded my expectations. Easy to tune and sound really warm,,,,I put on 2 ply Evans heads. Thanks Sweetwater!
5/5

DW Design Series Clear Acrylic Kit

Simplistic Beauty! The hardware definitely adds to the stunning looks of the kit. Out of the box, this Kit is set with Remo Single ply heads for batter and reso sides. DW 9000 series stands are used for toms / cymbals. Once setup and tuned, the standard heads included sounded very bright.....almost timpani-like. Bass drum very bright sounding even with felt-mallets used on the drum pedal. And yes.....the snare.....sound projection is phenomenal! For Jazz environments, this head setup would be my preference. There is a downside to all this beauty. For those of you who may wear glasses (like I do), proper care of acrylic (so not to scratch the surface when cleaning) is a must. The only other negative impact on this kit is the age old debate when recording (wood vs acrylic). But overall, I am pleased with these shells. For my preference I have switch all batter heads to Evans CL2 2-ply heads and a EMAD3 bass drum head. I prefer that "thud of doom' sound. And for the cost of this kit.....its well worth it.

Sweet drums

Not much tuning needed. You really need to get some drum rings for them. I got the e fusion Evans rings. The toms are great with just the rings. But the snare is a different story. It takes a little more time to get the sound right. Eventually I got it. The drums do come with a muffling kit for the kick drum. The only reason I gave the set 4.5 stars instead of 5 is because the drums come with NOTHING to mount the toms to. At least include a bracket to clamp them on a cymbal stand. I ended up buying the dw main drum rack. I'm happier with it more than I am with the drums! Superb quality on that thing! Highly recommended!

DW Design Series

Just played my first gig with these last weekend. Wow! Great tone and projection. My bandmates were blown away (literally). The newer ones ship with a clear front bass head (which I like). No L arms are included in this package, only floor tom legs. Comparing these with their largest competitor the Pearl Crystal beat it may be observed that the Pearl has a slightly thicker shell as these are 5.5. mm for snare and toms and 6.5 mm for Bass drum. Pearl's penchant for thicker shells are 6.0mm for toms and 7.0mm for Bass drums. Have tried both however and in my opinion these sound better due to better quality stock heads. Kirchoff Sladgewerk (Germany) has been producing acrylic seamless drums in these thickness specs for some time and have experienced no durability issues. They have graduated counter hoops, DW suspension system, true pitch tuning. They came well packed. If you like the look and sound as well as extra volume and projection of Acrylic drums, order this set! I gave it a 4.5 simply because no tom arms are included.
