MAPLE HVLT SHELLS
John Good and the DW Custom Shell Shop in California bring you HVLT™, the same technology that is standard on our latest Collector's Series® Cherry drums. HVLT grain orientation and slightly thicker 1/32" plies of North American maple are a potent combination that delivers a full tonal spectrum, attack, punch, and sonic versatility. Design Series® shells are tailored for just about every style of music.
Design Series® 8" toms feature a 7-ply HVLT construction, while the snares feature 10-ply HVX, and the 10"-18", along with all bass drums, feature 8-ply HVLT construction
STM™ - Suspension Tom Mount
DW’s patented STM™ (suspension tom mount) system allows drums to vibrate freely, allowing maximum resonance while securely holding the drum in place. Because there are no washers or grommets inhibiting the lug rod receiver, choking is reduced and tuning is as easy as ever. (U.S. Patent #5520083)
DW MAG™ Snare Throw-off System
Design Series® comes with the MAG™ throw-off finished in Chrome. A purposefully simple design, the MAG™ (U.S. Patent No. 7,902,444) is a workhorse drop throw-off with horizontal tension adjustment and smooth, easy-adjust action. It gets its name from a clever magnet that's integrated into the body of the throw-off. When the handle is in the up position, it won’t release without a slight tug. When it does release it throws the strainer completely off the head to avoid any strainer buzz.
Frequent Flyer™ Unique Features
The Frequent Flyer™ has some unique features to the Design Series® to keep it lightweight and ideal for gigging; low-mass spurs and lightweight ratchet bass drum mount, an 11x14" floor tom with legs, a traditional 8x12" rack tom with STM, and a matching 5x14" snare drum. The kit also comes standard with True-Pitch™ tension rods, MAG™ throw-off, True-Tone™ snare wires, and DW Heads by Remo®.
