DW Design Series Frequent Flyer
FREQUENT FLYER: GO PLACES!
Peter Erskine approached the DW design team with a novel question: "What if there were 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 12" x 20" bass drum with low-mass spurs and lightweight ratchet bass drum mount, an 11" x 14" floor tom with aluminum legs, a traditional 8" x 12" rack tom with STM, and a matching 5" x 14" snare drum. The kit also comes standard with True-Pitch tension rods, MAG throw-off, True-Tone snare wires, and DW Heads by Remo.
As is the case with all Design Series drums, the shells consist solely of North American maple with no reinforcement hoops. The kit is offered in two finishes: a durable White Onyx FinishPly and a gloss lacquer Tobacco Burst.
Cymbals and hardware not included.
