DW Quality, An Amazing Price!

Delivering unbelievable resonance and projection thanks to DW's proprietary HVX shell, Performance Series drums provide you with great sound at a real-world price. Built from a blend of seven plies of hand-selected North American hard rock maple, they dole out solid, thunderous punch every time you step onstage. On top of that, you get a scaled-down version of DW's trademark turret lug, as well as onboard True-Pitch tuning and 45-degree back-cut bearing edges. The DW Performance Series drums are an amazing value.

DW Performance Series at a Glance:
  • Punchy tones from HVX maple shells
  • Engineered for superior sound
Punchy tones from HVX maple shells

The Performance Series HVX shells blend horizontal, vertical, and diagonal plies of hand-selected North American hard rock maple (seven in total) and are voiced to give you solid low mids with a lot of punch and articulation. You'll find that these drums offer resonance and projection that's perfect for live performance. The maple shells give your sound definition and great response. You won't have to fight with mushy tones that get lost in the mix either, thanks to maple's natural brightness and clarity. Add a powerful punch and attack to your kit with the DW Performance Series.

Engineered for superior sound

Gain more control over your tuning and your tone with DW's Performance Series. True-Pitch tuning rods use a tighter threaded tension rod so you can more precisely intonate your kit. True-Pitch tuning rods have 20% more threads than common tuning rods, so the DW Performance Series drums can be tuned more precisely than most drums on the market. Plus, DW endowed the Performance Series drums with their STM suspension tom mount. This patented system allows your toms to resonate freely, maximizing the tonality while keeping the drum securely in place. And the 45-degree back-cut bearing edge minimizes contact with the drum head, which allows the head and the shell to resonate more freely for incredible sound. At Sweetwater we understand the importance of value, and we're confident that you'll be impressed at how much drum you get for the money with the DW Performance Series!

This tom was a late addition to my set. It sounds incredible with its great tone and attack. I wish I had been able to afford it earlier, but nonetheless it's been a great addition.

Great Addition

I recently added this to my kit and was thrilled with it! It added that extra element to my set that really sings. It's an amazing little Tom.

DW Rocks It!

What else do you need to know? It says DW, it's pure quality! I have been highly impressed with the Performance Series. It's DW all the way, without the high price of the Collectors Series. Pictures don't do justice to the cherry finish. The grain of the wood comes thru the stain, to the point that it looks like an expensive piece of furniture in your house. Too bad they dropped this finish, it really is amazing in person!
