DW Classics Series 3pc Drum Set

Vintage drum lovers unite! DW built this Classics Series to achieve a vintage sound and style, and they nailed it. The shells are similar to what you would find on a vintage Radio King, but with the solid modern construction that DW is famous for. Outer plies of top-quality Mahogany sandwich a thick inner ply of Poplar, with 6 ply Maple reinforcement rings on the inside of the shell. The added thickness of the reinforcement rings allows for rounded "butter" bearing edges. This kind of shell gives these drums a big, round, warm vintage sound with endless oomph, perfect for big fat grooves in the recording studio and on stage.
