To commemorate 45 years as The Drummer’s Choice, Drum Workshop proudly offers The Collector’s Series 45th Anniversary drum set. Each drum is hand-crafted at the DW California Custom Shop using hand-selected Norwegian Spruce from the Fiemme Valley in Northern Italy; the very region where wood is responsibly forested for some of the world’s most coveted and valuable orchestral stringed instruments. Four plies of the shell, both inner and outer, are finished in select European Sycamore. The face material is crafted from rare, highly-figured, quarter-cut European Sycamore exotic veneer, and features a meticulous Natural-to-Candy Black Burst Lacquer Specialty finish. An intricate center inlay is laser-cut and hand-assembled from exotic woods including Italian Grey Poplar, Black-Dyed Pearwood, and Blue Sapphire-Dyed Koto wood. The classic F-Hole artwork pays tribute to world-renown violin makers, and the Roman numerals commemorate DW’s milestone. Each instrument is also complemented by DW Custom Shop nickel-plated hardware and a host of drummer-friendly, professional features including True-Hoops™, True-Pitch 50 Tuning, S.T.M (Suspension Tom Mounts), M.A.G. Throw-Off System with 3P (3 position butt plate), DW Heads by Remo U.S.A and more. The pre-configured 6-piece set includes 8x10, 9x12, 12x14, and 14x16 toms; 18x22 bass drum; and 6.5x14 matching snare drum. A signed certificate of authenticity accompanies the collectable. Only 145 will ever be produced.SO 1074333.
