holy crap...
i have to say that DW looks like the real winner here, easily the best graphics, grains and glitters at the show! some gorgeous wood grains, an awsome salute to the forces and that crystal glitter job is just plain sweet, completley unattainable, but sweet nontheless!

I don't see that many DW kits with rack toms in those type of dimensions (square or larger). I think that might contribute to the kit's out-of-place-ness. Even then it's a great looking kit.

Completely agree with both of you. NAMM shows are incredible.

To be entirely honest, those graphics look incredibly tack to me. The wood grain is fantastic though on the other kit, but there is some seriously over-engineered hardware. Is all that necessary?

I wonder when they are going to announce the VLX shells. I saw where one other person had ordered them so I negotiated with my rep on my order and he talked to DW and got them to put it on my Bass Drum as well. I guess its not a huge focal point of NAMM because its only ideal on Bass Drums and floor toms, but it is supposed to be a combination of the VLT and X "creating and even lower fundamental tone" Verdict is still out though.....my friend has an X shell Bass Drum and i have a regular collectors series kit so I cant wait to compare. The X Shell Bass Drum does seem to be a little deeper and it could be the mental aspect, but I think it just overall sounds better. I mean my kit is 2004 and his bass drum 2008 so I would imagine drum companies continuously aim to improve their drums anyway. Maybe DW is saving this technology for Day 4 though...

As for the finishes, bubinga waterfall with candy black burst laquer is the top top....and what I ordered.....I don't like the gold hardware that many people are drooling over so I got the chrome....Unless you are neil peart, u should prolly not have gold hardware...

out

I think what makes it look un-DW is the fact that the inside of the bass hoops is covered in the sparkle, rather than revealing the wood (as they usually do), making it look more like a yamaha or the like.

I love the silver sparkle kit...it kind of looks like it would more powerful.

Also: do the platforms spin around?

Their makers are like that family on American Chopper. None of those rides are always practical either. But they're cool to look at at, and probably fun to drive.

I'm a big fan of the short-stacks over the hi-hats. I do something similar, only i use mini timbales.

I'ts a Ballad Snare

This is on the DW site about it:

The Collector's Series® Ballad Snare is a 10x16" snare drum on legs. As the name suggests, the Ballad Snare provides plenty of low-end punch for heavy backbeat applications. Complete with custom snare beds, snare wires and Delta throw-off, it can be ordered in any Collector's Series® finish combination.

DW does the best finishes. No question in my mind.

The airplane fuselage graphics just rock. I'd want more pin-up gals though. :D

I do agree on the over marketing of some of their stuff, but, there's something for everyone I guess...

I like shorter floor toms, and trad or short sizes on toms. I don't like square (14x14, 16x16) floor toms at all since I started playing the 2" shorter floor toms.
I won't buy a square floor tom again, but I know other people love the square size floor tom.

The ballad snare is a great concept to me.
It's something I could easily use in my band.
If they did it right, you should be able to tune it to be a side floor tom, but engage the snares and have a real deep snare sound--hopefully that's what it does, but I haven't played one yet.

Does anyone know which finish/wood that is on the kit with the 'ballad snare'? I haven't figured out how to paste in pictures.
