DW (DRUM WORKSHOP) COLLECTORS EXOTIC 8 PIECE DRUM KIT, AFRICAN CHECHEN, GOLD HARDWARE, TAKING OFFERS (PRE-LOVED)
Here we have a DW that stands for everything we've come to know and love about this company. This is a unique, totally custom Collectors Exotic in African Chechen with Gold Plated Hardware. Originally made in 2008 the kit has 4 toms, 1 floor, kick drum, woofer and matching snare drum. Set up it really is a sight to behold!
The exotic African Chechen outer veneer is also repeated inside all of the drums on the reinforcing rings which is a very nice touch. This is an incredibly breath taking finish.
Pure Maple Shell
The most popular wood for drum making, maple is a hardwood that produces maximum resonance, projection and attack. Combined with reinforcement hoops, it can produce a more focused sound and is well suited for live and studio applications.
Bearing edges for these drums are 45 degree, while the bass drum is 60 degree. All cuts are from the outer edge of the shell tapered toward the inside of the drums.
All of these shells underwent the DW Timbre-Matching process. Utilizing a digital tuner as part of DW's patented pitch identification procedure, each of these shells is stamped on its sweet spot with the shell's relative note-value.

PreLoved - Shells 9/10 - a tiny mark on the bass drum shell, plus usual pedal rash, a mark on the 16" floor tom. Hardware - 7/10 the usual and unavoidable tarnishing of the Gold Plating, from a slight distance totally un-noticable but close up like all used kits that have been in use, there are visible signs. It doesn't detract from the beauty of this kit.
