  • Item Details

    This is a shell pack, which means drums only! No cymbals, stands, or pedals are included. This drum set does include two DWSM991 tom holders.

    This exquisite DW drum set celebrates 45 years of cream-of-the-crop drum building. The shells are partially made from Norwegian Spruce harvested from the Panaveggio Forest in Northern Italy, the same forest and wood that Antonio Stradivarius used to create his million dollar violins hundreds of years ago.

    Croatian Sycamore fills out a few of the plies to give strength and body to these drums, and quarter-cut plies act as the outer veneer for a gorgeously exotic grain pattern.

    The artistic center band around each shell is made completely out of several exotic inlayed woods: Italian gray poplar, black-dyed pearwood, and blue sapphire-dyed koto. It features the DW logo, the roman numerals for "45", and violin F-holes.

    All of the shells are beautifully finished in a Natural-to-Candy Black Burst lacquer, fitted with commemorative badges, and the highest-end hardware DW can provide: True-Hoops, True-Pitch 50 tension rods, STM mounts, and a MAG throw off with 3p butt plate on the snare.

    Drum Dimensions (Depth x Diameter)

    • Bass Drum: 18" x 22"
    • Mounted Toms: 8" x 10", 9" x 12"
    • Floor Toms: 12" x 14", 14" x 16"
    • Snare Drum: 6.5" x 14"

    Only 145 of these breathtaking drum sets were made, and we've got #8. It was inspected personally by John Good and comes with a signed Certificate of Authenticity. Pick it up for yourself before it's gone forever!
