DW releases all-new performance series matte lacquer finishes


(1st December, 2021 – Oxnard, CA) Drum Workshop Inc. (DW) has added two modern color choices to its popular range of Performance Series drums.  In addition to previous sprayed lacquer options, drummers can now choose from two exciting, new matte lacquer colors, Metallic Charcoal and Gold Mist. Utilizing Pure Maple shells that are hand-crafted at DW’s California Custom Shop,  the boutique-inspired line features many of the company’s professional features such as patented HVX shell technology, True-Pitch™ Tuning, STM Suspension Tom Mount System™, MAG Throw-Off™ with 3P adjustment, DW Heads by Remo and more. The Series is played by many of DW’s top artists and has been part of the DW Drums line for well over a decade. John Good, DW’s Executive Vice President and Drum Designer comments, “We’re so proud of how this Series has evolved over the years.  For those that want a top-quality instrument made from our finest North American Hard Rock Maple but don’t want to enter into the custom world, this is a perfect choice.”  Both Finishes include a pearlescent look, combined with an understated satin topcoat; all are fitted with the recognizable DW “Quarter Turret Lug” and pro-grade, chrome hardware.
