Great kit! Are those staves shells DW made or did you do them?

DW made them, or someone made them for DW. I found the kit in the DW showroom, along with two other stave kits, one walnut and one maple. The walnut was by far the best, but that was not available, sadly. Not that the oak is bad... :)

Hmm interesting. Probably the same company that makes the stave snares for them, nice, lucky you! Thanks for your answer, Hefu.

I'd love to see the walnut one also... I've had a walnut snare built by a friend of mine who does that - one piece steam bent - and I love it! Walnut is really smooth and I play it loose and heavy.

Prototype DW that's just nuts?! Are those one ply shells? Did they use the super solid technique on those shells? Loop us in if you ever do a vid or audio sample. I'm totally geeked out.

If those are stave.. then they are sectioned shells Jeff. However,.. he states they have the build in re-rings.. just like the Microwaved Super-Solid shells they use for snares.


Here he put alot more photos. I wonder who is the shell builder.

I appreciate the link. I have an SS snare, and I'm feeling those oak drums look microwaved.

Now let's see...
I have some pictures from the showroom, and I might have been wrong...
There are more than three kits! The Mahogany kit I never got a picture on! The maple one is stain in ebony, and there is another maple kit on tube, and perhaps another one beside it!

Anyway, from what John Good said the shells were made by a conga maker in Thailand, who supposedly is the best around. The shells are stave, and the scoped out, as he put it.

Well, I don't know, but they sound huge, and they sound GOOD!
I just lend the kit to a friend with a great drum studio, so maybe I can get some sound clips along the way.

Some more pics from the DW showroom, all stave kits:

Thanks Hefu. Very cool ! Probably the manufacturer in Thailand has alot of experience.

How do you compare to ply shell sound ? Superior ?? or just different ??

Interesting stuff. Single ply shells tend to be bright with a sharp clear attack.

Different. A lot of attack, and a LOT of low end. Not the usual DW low end, though.
I have 10, 12 and 14" toms, I wish I had a 16" also, but sound wise the 14" is more like a 16 or 18 in sound, if you want. The bas drum is a beast, I brought it to a church gig once. Bad choice! It was way too loud, I should have brought the 14x18" collector maple kick...

I did record an album with the bass drum, but by the time the mix was done, it was all sound replaced, since the producer was that kind of guy, not because it needed to be done.

Here is my brand-new DW Collector's kit: black diamond finish ply w/ black chrome hardware.

The sizes:
7x13 black nickel over brass snare
7x10 rack tom, maple X-shell
8x12 rack tom, maple X-shell
12x14 suspended floor tom, maple VLX
14x16 suspended floor tom, maple VLX
20x22 virgin kick, maple X-shell
20x22 virgin kick, maple X-shell

I know the pics are low-resolution, I will post better ones once I get everything set up. Now all I need to do is build a killer looking and functional rack system (most likely cobbled together with DW 9000 series odds and ends).

Does this thread exist already?

Tell everyone about yours, why you love it, share pics and tell everyone else how much better your kit is than theirs. Go Dubbers!

I think this is the longest DW thread I have ever read without somebody making a derogatory comment about DW. Nice, you DW slammers stay out of this thread.

I have owned a DW Collectors maple in orange sparkle finish ply and a DW Jazz kit in Champagne glass glitter. Both were nice kits, no issues whatsoever. Easy to tune and get a good sound out of.

Rick, that Champaign sparkle is just heavenly. Probably my favorite finish of all time. Is that an 18" kick drum?

Okay I'm gonna play the snare guessing game.
From the top:
1 - Craviotto 14x5.5 lacquer/natural 24k
2 - Craviotto 14x6.5 satin/nat. Chrome w/Nickleworks throw
3 - Collectors 10/6 14x5 lacq./nat. 24k
4 -tough one. Collectors Hickory? 14x5.5 Chrome
5 - another tough one. Collectors 10/6 14x6 Rainbow exotic? 24k
6- Steel Edge 14x5.5 Curly maple 24k w/Nickleworks throw

How'd I do? I notice you've got a Collectors copper snare w/ the Tamo Ash kit too (you rotten bast**d) ;b

3- You got it right, except for brass hardware
4- Collectors Birch with amber lacquer
5- Collectors Rosewood exotic 6.5x14 w/ brass
6- Edge brass/maple 6x13 flame maple w/brass hardware

It's in my sig. Ruby Glass FinishPly with chrome hardware and Mirror Chrome FinishPly on the BD hoops. The bass drums is "extra virgin"; no tom mount OR spurs. It rides on a cradle and sounds pretty big for an 18". The toms are short-stack 8, 10, 12 and 13", but the 12 and 13 are going to be replaced with 12 and 15" "power" depth toms (floor tom positions). The snare is a 7x13" 10+6 and is crispier than fresh apple slices topped with bacon bits.

JBonzo, I flipped a coin between Rainbow and Rosewood, and the 13's threw me. All quite awesome. Nice to see all the black badges too. Mike thanks for the pics. Sweet little 18". You'll have to tell us about that cymbal set up.

So I have a few DW snares in my arsenal, shown here:

Vault Edge
Top Edge
Cherry HVLT
Oak stave - DW and Gon Bops dual badge (finish matches kit)

I also have a 6-piece Collectors Series kit in an exotic (figured sycamore) burnt toast finish. I don't have a pic of the entire kit but I've included pics of one of the floor toms to give an idea of the finish.

Jbonzo you have an astonishing collection. Did you add the Nickleworks and Trick throws yourself or are they factory.

SunDog,
The Nickle's are factory. The other throw is the DW Delta, which I don't like. Had them on three drums and replaced all of them. Very stiff. My favorites are the Drop Style and the new Mag.
I need to photograph my metal DW snares.

SteadyPocket, all very nice too. That Vault is about the best snare I've ever heard and one of only 25 made available in N. America. I am rapidly getting out classed here. Sweet drums
