10*7 (I think, the suold be "fast")
12*8
14*12 flour T.1
16*14 flour T.2

the green one (satin oil sep. 2000) is:
22*18

Hey DW fans. I just saw a new 4 piece DW Collecters Series in Silver Sparkle wrap at a little local music store going for $1,675.00.
Drums only, No snare,no hardware,virgin kick,and no tom mounts.
Still this seems to be a very good price.
The kit was made in 2005 so they obviously have been sitting there for 5 years.
Have they changed at all since 05?. Are the 2010s any different?.
What kind of wood did they make these kits in?. Maple,Birch, the badges dont say.
Can anyone with good knowledge of these kits tell me if this is a good or great deal?.
Should I jump on it?.

That seems to be a decent deal. They might even knock off more if they have had it that long. The shells are probably maple but you should ask the shop. The badges may have changed since then but I don't know. I don't think much has changed since '05 other than the newer VLT shells etc. but I don't know when all of the different shell types were introduced. Again, seems like a decent deal but I didn't pay much more than that for mine that was made in '09.

These kits are supposed to be so expensive and coveted. I know its 5 years old but they have never been played (no marks on stock DW heads and in perf. cond.).
Oh well, its all good. Maybe I'll flash him $1,500.00 cash and tell him (in a nice way) "take it or leave it". If he doesnt bite, It wasent meant to be.
Sounds like you got a great deal...Nice.

My DW' maple Collector Series arrived. Thanks to Sam Ash and DW for very efficient service, from order to delivery in Hong Kong, about two months. And to various forum members for input/suggestions and to Drummers World for providing such a valuable resource for research.

They look beautiful and sound great. Anyone who thinks the shorter toms may not have enough projection shouldn't worry - the 11 x 14 and 14 x16 are very fat sounding and the 8x10 provides a really nice top end thwack. And they're very easy to hump around! The pix don't do the finish justice - it's very, very nice.

FInish is Black Velvet FInish Ply (except the 5 x 14 Edge snare which I already had).

Specs

8 X 10 X shell
9 X 12 VLT
11x14 w/legs VLT
13 X 16 w/legs VLX
16 X 20 w/BDM VLX

Cymbals: Paistes - 21" ride, 16" and 17" crash, 10" splash, 14" HH.

Have a 9000 pedal, but didn't get their other hardware - too expensive; happy with a mix of Tama/Yamaha stands. Glad I got the DW bass drum mount rather than tom stands though - it's a solid and well-designed piece of gear and the less heavy metal I have to carry around the better at my age.

Some posters say DW is all hype - maybe it is, they certainly market well and provide good customer service. But bottom line, these are great drums.

Cheers, David

A question: no more Gretsch? What are the major differences between the Gretsch kits you presented in another thread and the DW ones?

Un abbraccio!

A bit of an update from me. I thought this thread would be the most appropriate.

Added a few extra things to the kit. I'm now running an 8" roto tom alongside my 10" tom as my two racks, and have discarded the 12" for now. I've also picked up an AAX 19" Xplosion crash, which is over my ride. The full specs are:

DW Collector's in Ebony Satin Oil w/ Gold Hardware

10x9
14x12 FT
16x14 FT
Brady 14x6 Jarrah Ply Snare
Metro 10x6 Jarrah Block Snare
8" Roto Tom.

Cymbals (l to r)
18" HHX Evolution Crash
8" A Custom Splash
14" HHX X-Celerator Hihats
18" AAX Xplosion Crash
10" stack (Stagg myra splash over Radia Splash)
10" HHX Splash
21" HHX Dry Ride
19" AAX Xplosion Crash
18"/20" stack (A Custom Projection Crash over Bosphorus Traditional China)
20" HHX China

Sorry about the quality - iPhone photo. My SLR camera was flat, I'll post some better pics tomorrow.

Beautiful Kits!
I'm looking at getting a DW kit. I think i'll get a Collectors in finishply with a straight black. Smooth. But can anyone recommend what color I should make my hardware? Chrome or Gold. Its sorta off topic but you guys seem like experts.

Black nickel hardware on a black kit? I wouldn't do that. Actually, I wouldn't buy a black kit at all, but that's completely my opinion, so I think I can better not say anything about this...

Doesn't straight black mean something like black? Or am I completely wrong?

because i had them tuned really loose at one point, lighting makes it worse than it actually is, its more just stick marks as opposed to dents

I couldn't find a "Show Us Your PDP" so I thought I would add this here. This is my stage and recording kit. It's a PDP Platinum Series in cherry to black fade born 17 July 2008.

Specs are:
22in Kick
14in Snare
12in Rack
16in Floor

Hey man, sorry i didn't your question there.

At the moment it's a bit of a dodgy mounting setup. I've got the roto's threaded rod going into a dixon percussion mount, which is clamped to one of the rods of my DW double tom clamp. Messy, but it gets the job done! Need to find a proper stand or clamp for it. I think Remo *might* do something for that.

dexterbydesign - nice set! Though that ZXT Rock Ride brings back some bad memories for me (used to own one and hated it)

Haha yeah. Trying to save some money to buy a new one (Probably some A Customs or K's). I use it more like a crash now anyway which gives me a better sound than it did as a ride, believe it or not.

it's a 2008 platinum series, I think (not quite sure) they started with the dual tubes in that year. But they have them on all the platinums now as well.

I decided to put this comment here because DW offer it on their custom builds. Has anybody opted for the MAY internal micing system on their DW drums? I just want to know if they're as good as what the little video they have on the website says.

Yep. Pretty happy with it so far. But I think you need to choose this method for the right reasons. If I had a smaller kit, frankly, I would have gone with it in the bass only because it is just plain more flexible to not have mics mounted in your drums. Good reasons to do it are:
  1. Speeds setup/tear down.
  2. You are tight on space for mikes in your kit.
  3. You just don't like having to play around mikes (although this doesn't completely go away with internal mikes either).
  4. You have a large kit, are close miking and want to minimize bleed.

This is my second DW kit. It is an exotic in curly maple with a candy black fade. It is actually a 5 piece but I am only using it as a 4 piece right now. The full kit is 10x8 VLT 12x9 VLT 16x14 X and 23x18 VLX. The cymbals are all Paiste.

Awesome! I'm a fair ways away from getting my DW kit but i have PDP Platinums at the moment. I was thinking it would be a better choice for recording so i can get a nice isolation of each drum and because it's inside the drum itself it would limit the bleed from other mics.
