This listing is for a single DW 10x8” Performance Rack Tom in Titanium Sparkle. This listing includes the DW Hoop Mount seen in the pictures.
The DW Performance Series makes it fast and affordable to flesh out a drum kit. This HVX maple tom is hand built in the same California plant, by the same skilled craftsmen, as DW's inimitable Collector's Series. Its shell hardware even offers many of the same tuning and performance advantages. Reduced Quarter Turret lugs and a range of specialty wrap, lacquer, and satin finishes give the Performance Series a heart and soul all its own.
The Performance Series begins with DW's US-built, handcrafted HVX hard rock North American maple shells. The HVX grain orientation arranges wood plies horizontally, vertically, and diagonally for a deep and satisfying fundamental. Shells are baked in pressure molds (2600 PSI at 200°F) then immediately Cool Tempered to crystallize the glue, maximizing strength, roundness, and resonance. All Performance Series toms come crowned with pinpoint 45° back-cut bearing edges to enhance attack and increase head response.
Proprietary DW hardware
Unique to the Performance Series are DW's reduced-size Quarter Turret lugs. These offer a decidedly sleeker, more modern appearance that many DW artists prefer. A closer look reveals much of the same hardware found throughout the DW's Collector's Series:
Graduated Counter Hoops, weighted per shell size, unlock a dynamic balance of attack and sustain
- Washer-less STM Suspension Tom Mounts float toms securely without choking tone
- Fine-threaded True-Pitch tension rods maximize tuning accuracy
