That being said, I would still run past the classics to save the collectors if my basement was on fire, but that could change.

Hey Baz, those drums are oozing with classz! ;-)

Hey Alex, I have the same finish. When I bought my kit second hand from my local Drum Shop in about 2002 they told me it was called Oyster Shell. I'm not sure whether to believe them or not. Mine is the only one like it which I have seen in the flesh and I've only seen 1 or 2 on forums such as this. And as you can see in your photo's the finish looks great under lights.

...Here is my classic kit as I have been playing them for the past few months.



22x14, 14x14, 12x8, with my 13x5.5" Craviotto. For cymbals I am using a 21" hh raw bell dry ride, 14" hh fusion hats, an 18" hh medium, and an 18" hhxtreme crash. All the hardware is the flush base stuff.

I am glad that I have found a home for the Craviotto. It is a really nice snare, but I always felt that it belonged to a smaller sized kit. It seems to fit in very well with these classics.

Nice, has to be one of my favourite finish ply wraps that DW offer. Lookin classy with the brass hardware too.

Thanks for the compliment Baz. They were shot with a Pentax K100 using an old 50mm prime lens.

If I recall, the accompanying box has a DVD (which is tremendously boring actually - if you've researched your purchase there is nothing new); a microfiber cleaning cloth; general care instructions (might have been a booklet?) and then any necessary memory locks etc.

Both of my orders were sequential within the set. IIRC badging is done as one of the very last steps before your kit ships. (I did the tour like 3 years ago - if I recall the hardware station was one end (badges in there somewhere) and at the other end, heads & hoops were put on, the drum was tuned and given a final inspection.

Damn, and I thought my gold on black deebubs were blinging. Respect sir. That looks absolutely s**t hot.

I might have to a trip to Switzerland just to chuck the two kits side by side.

Well, to be honest I did not find out who your favorite drummer is, but finally that's not really important. What IS important is that your kit is absolutely gorgeous! Chapeau!

What about the 23" bass drum?

Wow guys! All these awesome pictures are making me even more excited for the one i'm buying soon!

I had one question hopefully you guys could clear up. I went on the dw kit builder and when I got the quote for my set it came up as close to $4900. At first I was disappointed but then I read the quote it gives is usuall very high and you can negotiate to 30% less. Any truth to this?

Also any examples on how many pieces your set is with the price you got for it new would be well appreciated.

Thanks!!

Well, I'm part of the family now XD... (that package is awesome, the drum key owns).

Just went to Dale's Drum Shop in Harrisburg, PA. Have to say, it was INCREDIBLE! They had at least 50+ sets in their shop, with 10+ of them being DWs. And their collection of what seems to be nearly 300 cymbals is KILLER(about to make a road trip again soon)!

But anyways, I got a steal on this new kit I just got and I'm loving it. Specs are:

DW Collectors Series
White Twisted Silk Finish
Chrome Hardware

8x10 Rack Tom VLT
9x12 Rack Tom VLT
14x16 Floor Tom(w/ legs) X-Shell
18x22 Bass Drum VLX
14x5.5 Snare Drum VLT
9500 DW Hi Hat Stand
9300 Series Snare Stand

And also with the mix, I got an awesome Gibraltar Rack System for 50% off.

All in all, the total came out to be $3890 and some change, and I have to say, I feel that it was a steal.

Well here are the pics
(see next post)
