This Drum Kit is Made to Travel

DW designed the Design Series Frequent Flyer Kit to give you a portable drum kit that doesn't sound puny or wimpy. Most "portable" acoustic drum kits feature a smaller bass drum that just makes the kit sound small. The Frequent Flyer Kit packs a 20" bass drum for the punch and impact of a full-size kit. The secret here is a combination of shallow drum shells and lighter-weight hardware, that all adds up to an amazingly compact and transportable kit. Ask any drummer at Sweetwater, the DW Design Series Frequent Flyer Kit four-piece shell pack is a portable drum kit that doesn't sacrifice tone!

DW Design Series Frequent Flyer Kit 4-piece Shell Pack at a Glance:
  • Impressive tone from DW's HVLT maple shells
  • Big sound in a compact, travel-friendly kit
  • Better tuning with DW's True-Pitch Tuning Rods
Impressive tone from DW's HVLT maple shells

You still get impressive punch and tone from the Design Series Frequent Flyer Kit, even though its shells shallow for better transportability. The secret is DW's HVLT shell construction, which uses multiple plies of maple arranged with alternating grain patterns. By alternating the direction of the wood grains HVLT shells are more rigid, enhancing the focus and attack of your drum tone.

Big sound in a compact, travel-friendly kit

Many "travel size" drum kits give you a compact kick drum that really doesn't pack the "oomph" you're looking for. The Frequent Flyer Kit packs a 20"-diameter bass drum, with a 12" shell depth. DW chose this size as the best compromise between tone and size, and we think you'll be impressed at the full sound you get from this drum kit.

Better tuning with DW's True-Pitch Tuning Rods

You'll have more control over your tuning than ever with DW's True-Pitch Tuning Rods. These tighter-threaded tension rods let you intonate your kit with much greater precision than standard rods allow. True-Pitch Tuning Rods have 20% more threads than common tuning rods, which means DW Designer Series drums can be tuned more exactly than most drums on the market.

DW Design Series Frequent Flyer Kit 4-piece Shell Pack Features:
  • Compact drum kit that's ideal for traveling
  • Exceptional punch and tone from maple shells
  • Precise tuning thanks to True-Pitch Tuning Rods
  • Designed for drummers that need a kit that's easy to fly with
  • Lightweight hardware for better portability
The DW Design Series Frequent Flyer Kit is ready to travel!

Awesome!

Great Sound & Looks! Tobacco Finish is Stunning! I also purchased the flat base stands all around. I replaced the stock heads(which sound great!) with 2ply Evans red hydraulics and a Evans 2ply coated snare head with some moon gels which makes them sound even better! Finished off with a set of Zildjian K Custom Hybrids and I'm good to go!

DW Frequent Flyer

I just got this kit last month and I am blown away by the tone of these drums. I was scared because I didn't know how they would sound. My first gig was with a 9 piece brass band and they sounded great!!! The maple really cuts through. The small bass drum sounds big and full and is easy to haul. Overall a great buy if you need a set to cart around. These are great sounding drums.
Music background: Love to play bars,party,for fun

DW Frequent Flyer Kit

The drums sounded great out of the box. I tweaked the snare drum by replacing the Remo Asian batter head with an Evans Genera Batter Head. I also replaced the Remo resonant bass drum head with an Evans EQ3 smooth resonant head without a port and used an Evans EQ pad instead of the DW supplied pillows.I also own a DW Collector Series kit, which is too heavy to easily schlep from gig to gig. The Frequent Flyer Kit plays almost as well as the Collector kit. My preferred snare drums are a DW Copper Snare and a DW solid maple (Caviotto) shell.
