In this video I am playing the DW Collector’s Series Exotic 6-piece kit. This is one beautiful drum kit specially made for Sweetwater by DW’s John Good at the DW custom shop in California. These drums just sing with great tone and attack and will last more then a lifetime. These drum will work an any situation from studio to live with any style of music.
This kit comes with a 5.5″ x 14″ snare, 8″ x 10″ and 9″ x 12″ rack toms, 12″ x 14″ and 14″ x 16″ floor toms, and an 18″ x 23″ kick-drum. If you have never tried a 23″ kick drum I highly suggest that you do. It has the big deep low end of a 24″ drum with the attack or a 22″ drum. It is really the best of both worlds. The drums are done in a gorgeous grey stain with candy black burst finish and have a exotic Birds Eye maple veneer.
These drums are made with DW’s SSC (Specialized Shell Configuration) construction. DW has many different ways they construct drum shells, and with the Collector’s Series you can customize your set with anything you like. This Sweetwater Exclusive drum kit has three different kinds of shell construction. The rack toms are the VLT version (the outer ply and the inner play of the shell run vertically), the 12″ x 14″ floor tom is the X version (all of the wood grain runs diagonally), and the 14″ x 16″ floor tom and the kick drum are the VLX version (two plies in the shell run diagonally). This all makes for a unique drum set that sounds amazing from high pitch to low pitch.
The snare drum on this DW Collector’s Series Exotic 6-piece kit features DW’s MAG throw off, three-position butt plate, and True Pitch tuning rods.
This is one fantastic drum set and it is a Sweetwater Exclusive, so you better get it while you can!
