"It was so popular we added it to the line. Then, we came out with stainless steel, and that was really well-received. After that, our version of a Titanium drum. By this time, we figured that there is a market for both thin shells and the thicker cast-type shells we had been offering for years, so we’ve decided to have a little of both. Now we have aluminum. It's a really nice drum, warmer than brass and just enough metallic sound to cut and the sensitivity is really nice, too!"
The thin aluminum shell is finished with a matte grey powder coat and has a rolled bearing edges and snare beds. The Custom Shop drum comes standard with chrome hardware and features such as: DW's MAG throw-off system with 3P (3 position) butt-plate, True Tone snare wires, True Pitch stainless steel tension rods, 3.0mm steel True Hoops and DW Heads by Remo USA. John Good continues:
"It's not the first thin Aluminum shell on the market, but it's the first DW version. We think that a bead-less shell and our patented features such as our MAG throw-off system sets us apart from the crowd. Plus, our artists are thrilled to have this option available. We already have a ton of pre-orders from guys that want to use it on sessions and tours."
