Drum Workshop Drums At NAMM 2012

Our tour of DW’s 2012 NAMM exhibit revealed the usual array of dazzling drums, with the standout being the company’s limited-edition 40th Anniversary Japanese Tamo Ash kit with pewter-plated hardware. We also checked out a couple new snare drums, including the Top Edge model, which features a brass ring encircling only at the top of the maple/mahogany shell. There were some new colors in DW’s Performance Series kits, but the big news for budget conscious drummers was the launch of the new Concept Maple Series – a DW and PDP collaboration that features loads of high-end features at a very low price.
