DW Frequent Flyer 4pc Shell Pack In Tobacco Burst

Item: DWDDLG2004TB

At DW, behind every great drum set is a great drum set. DW has taken the custom drum-making experience and infused it into a professional, quality drum kit that sets a new standard for quality and affordability. Design Series™ is a DW kit through and through. From the newly-designed mini Turret lug, to Remo USA®-made Suede® "outline" logo heads, to a sleek silver and white badge, its looks are fresh and decidedly familiar. Add to that, custom-inspired features such as three durable Specialty Lacquer finishes, STM™ (Suspension Tom Mounts), True-Pitch™ Tuning, MAG throw-off, low-mass die cast claw hooks, and more. Last, but certainly not least, there's the sound. These are thicker shells that pack a punch. Incorporating HVLT™ (Vertical Low Timbre shell with a horizontal outer ply), Design Series™ all-maple shells are full, resonant, and responsive.

FREQUENT FLYER™: GO PLACES Peter Erskine approached the DW design team with a novel question,"What if there was a travel kit that didn't sound like a travel kit?" Seems obvious enough, but the minds at DW had never tackled the quandary head-on, as it wasn't a simple task. So they went to work on a kit that was just small enough to be travel-friendly, but also substantial enough to sound like a 'real' drum set should. After, literally, years of R&D and discussion, the sizes were agreed upon: a 12x20" bass drum with low-mass spurs and lightweight ratchet bass drum mount, an 11x14" floor tom with aluminum legs, a traditional 8x12" rack tom with STM, and a matching 5x14" snare drum. The kit also comes standard with True-Pitch™ tension rods, MAG™ throw-off, True-Tone™ snare wires, and DW Heads by Remo®.
The kit is offered in two finishes: a durable White Onyx FinishPly™ and a gloss lacquer Tobacco Burst. As is the case with all Design Series™ drums, the shells consist solely of North American maple with no reinforcement hoops. Lightweight 6000 Series hardware, including the new Ultralight™ cymbal stand, perfectly compliments the set and is sold separately.

DW Frequent Flyer 4pc Shell Pack In Tobacco Burst Features:

Hardware Colors

  • Design Series™ drums are available exclusively in Chrome. This includes lugs, hoops, STM™, and tom legs. The Design Series "turret lug" is a scaled-down version of the famous round DW lug (a step smaller from Performance Series™), while the snare drums get a unique "propeller" look all their own. Keep in mind, our stands are available in Chrome, Black Nickel, and 24 Karat Gold.

Graduated Counter Hoops

  • Design Series are available exclusively with Chrome Standard Triple Flange Hoops to give your drums a great versatile sound. Steel Triple Flange Hoops come in graduated weights (1.6mm for 8 & 10" toms, 2.3mm for 12-18" toms and snare).

TM™ - Suspension Tom Mount

  • DW’s patented STM™ (suspension tom mount) system allows drums to vibrate freely, allowing maximum resonance while securely holding the drum in place. Because there are no washers or grommets inhibiting the lug rod receiver, choking is reduced and tuning is as easy as ever. (U.S. Patent #5520083)

DW MAG™ Snare Throw-off System

  • DW Throwoffs Design Series comes with the MAG™ throw-off finished in Chrome. A purposefully simple design, the MAG™ (U.S. Patent No. 7,902,444) is a workhorse drop throw-off with horizontal tension adjustment and smooth, easy-adjust action. It gets its name from a clever magnet that's integrated into the body of the throw-off. When the handle is in the up position, it won’t release without a slight tug. When it does release it throws the strainer completely off the head to avoid any strainer buzz.

True-Pitch® Tuning Rods

  • To give drummers even more control over their sound, DW created its patented True-Pitch® rod system. The rods feature 5mm threads rather than the 12/24 that’s standard on most other drums. To compare, there is 1 thread every 0.8mm on our True-Pitch® rods (about 20% more threads), versus 1 thread every 1.05mm on most other drums. The result is a more exacting tuning process. True-Pitch® rods are only available in chrome and gold.
