Default New DW kit!

Hello everyone. I've been lurking a while, checking out your kits and finally settled on this DW. It's a Collectors series, tobacco burst in hard satin over birds eye maple. I had seen other kits in this a similar finish but the pictures didn't seem to do them justice. In diffuse ambient light they look stunning. Have had them two days and I'm already planning a 12" mate for the rack tom!

5x14 VLT snare
8x10 VLT tom
12x14 X shell floor tom
14x16 X shell floor tom
18x22 X shell kick
9000 pedals and hardware
Various Sabian crashes and a lonely '70s Zildjian ride

TD20
Tempus 6 piece

WOW! This set is beautiful! I can only imagine how incredible it sounds!

I am actually looking into buying a DW set soon.

Mind if I ask how much this set was?

After a three month wait the total for the shells, taxes in, $6800 Canadian. The pedals and hardware was another $2000... for now. Can't take them out of the house to gig 'till I can afford cases.

I love the "optical illusion" that the 10" rack makes the kick look larger than it is. Sweet lookin' kit.

I think the word I'm looking for is tits.

Yes.

Those drums are tits.


That satin oil finish is jaw droppingly beautiful, I'd hardly want to take those drums anywhere in case they got scratched.

I can only hope my Ebony Satin Oil DW I have on order looks half as good as that. How much extra did the X shells and VLT cost? I just went with collectors shells on the toms and built in bottoms on the floors, it racked the price up a good 2 grand (in AUD).

Really beautiful set and I like the size difference between the rack and floor toms.

Your rack tom seems to be very far away from the floor toms. Have you thought of raising the ride cymbal and moving the rack tom closer?

Man, birdseye maple is beautiful...love it! I like the contrast of the 10" tom. I used to play my DW kit the same way. The best heads I ever used on my dee-dubs were Fiberskyn 3's over clear ambassadors...it made them incredibly fat and resonant...more so than on any other drums I've had.

Hey all, thanks for all the kind words. I live in a suburb of Vancouver, Canada so given the state of our dollar, the price of drums and the cost of housing here, I don't have much money left for food. I'm lucky enough to be in a working band so it sort of pays for the gear. The two crashes in the pics are a 16" Leopard dark crash from the '80s and an 18" HH prototype from when the Sabian tour came through town. The proto is somewhat dark and earthy but with a brilliance that breaks through. I don't play in the living room but the wife is out of town and it's a better setting than an unfinished basement! Maybe she won't notice them when she comes home;)

Welcome to the forum!

That`s true eye-candy! Beautiful looking set-up and to be honest, we all know that those DW drums sound great with good tuning. ;-)

Congrats to that kit and the cymbals! How does the Leopard crash sound??

Beautiful kit, if i could pick one finish for my drums, it would be that tobbaco burst.
Nice "crib" as well.

I do say this a lot, but this is one of my favourite kits on the forum. The finish and sizes are just what I'm after.

Thanks for that Tom. It took a long time and a lot of stress picking a finish from pictures on the web and brochures. You don't know what you got until you you open the box! Btw, I was born in London also and moved to Canada as a child. Great city, always fun to visit. Here is a overhead and some shots of the kit moved downstairs to the soon to be finished drum room.

couldn't agree more. I've been probably about 20 times now in my life and every time i go i manage to find another place i've never seen before it's just so big.

Nice kit too by the way.

That kit looks absolutely fantastic!!! I saw a DW kit in that finish at a local drum shop and fell in love with it. If I ever get one it will be that finish or the ebony satin oil. The finish you chose is truly classy!!!! Congrats!!

Oh and then you post a pic with a roland v-drum kit :-() You must have one hard working band! You're a lucky man to have all those toys ;-)
