What if boutique-inspired drums loaded with pro-features were more affordable? What if drummers could get a wide variety of our most popular Custom Shop sizes and colors without breaking the bank? We’re proud to introduce a new concept, a completely re-imagined line of PDP drums designed for every drummer. It’s called the Concept Series and it has a fresh new look and a sound that already has drummers talking. Choose from Concept Maple or Concept Birch shells in a myriad of today’s most popular configurations. Then, add toms or bass drums to build custom-style kits to suit just about every musical style. Add to that, high-end features like STM (Suspension Tom Mounts), True Pitch tension rods, MAG throw-off, die cast low-mass claw hooks, proportionate counter hoops and durable lacquer finishes, and you have a kit that unquestionably lives up to its DW roots.
Tom and bass drum shells are made up of 7 ply wood, and snares are made with 10 ply
Concept Series is a new line of PDP drums that are available in both all-maple or all-birch shells. All shells are 7-ply, except for the snare which is 10-ply. Through our research with the DW Custom Shop, we have found some particular detail features that have a big effect on sound and quality. We believe every drummer deserves these features, so we included DW-style STM mounting systems, True Pitch™ tuning, F.A.S.T. tom sizing, proportional counter hoop sizing*, and Remo drum heads. Snare drums come with the DW MAG throw-off and fully chromed snare wires featuring carbon steel coils and brass plates end plates. Bass drums come with die-cast claw hooks, and all drums feature the new retro-inspired dual-turret tube lug. Concept Maple drums are available in six specialty high-gloss finishes, all with chrome hardware, except for pearlescent black (black hardware). Concept Birch drums share all of the great features of Concept Maple, but with all-birch shells. They are available in two different configurations with a full range of add-on drums. Choose from two transparent lacquer burst options, both with chrome hardware.
