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 eight 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 (eight 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 drumhead, 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!

Impressive sound, amazing build, wonderful drums.

Bought this in November of 2016 as part of a 7 piece (8, 10, 12, 13" rack toms, 14, 16" floor toms and 22" bass) DW Performance Natural Satin Oil kit right here from Sweetwater. As soon as they came from Indiana (a day earlier than scheduled) completely safe and secure, I unboxed everything and was incredibly impressed with how beautiful and stunning these drums are. The wood grain and satin oil finish is exactly what I wanted and the chrome hardware is gorgeous. The Remo/DW clear/coated (partially coated clear heads) look and sound great. The STMs (suspended tom mounts) on my rack toms are sturdy but light and absolutely do their job with no noise and a very simple set up to my DW tom mount stands. The floor toms have sturdy legs with locks and no slip semi-soft feet. The 22" bass is perfection. The drums all have a really great matched tone and feel, with high volume using little effort yet are still very sensitive as they are fairly shallow in depth. The Remo heads are reactive and bright throughout the rack toms and have punch and growl in the 13 14 and 16" toms. The 22" bass has a tight response with a deep low end and a good sustain. They look amazing and sound even better. I absolutely love these drums and for half the price of DW Customs I feel they are a great deal. I can see myself holding on to this kit for life. Zach Garrison and Sweetwater did their regular incredible job from answering my queries to ordering and finally shipping my drums and I recommend Sweetwater to anyone interested in buying music gear. I have been a Sweetwater customer for several years now and have only had the very best experiences with them.
