The most popular wood for drum making, maple is a hardwood that produces maximum resonance, projection and attack. Combined with reinforcement hoops, it can produce a more focused sound and is well suited for live and studio applications.
To make a better instrument, sometimes you have to go back to the basics. We spent nearly a year-and-a-half designing and perfecting the most consistent counter hoop we’ve ever produced. It’s called the True Hoop® and it’s a major advancement in the relationship between bearing edge, drum head and counter hoop. As drummers, we know how critical that relationship is to tuning and tone. The True Hoop® is just that, round and flat, and without the typical variations you often see around stamped holes. It even has an attractive new touch: a fully-rounded outer edge. They now come factory installed on all Custom Shop Drums and are available in all drum hardware color options.
True Hoops® are also gauged in graduated thicknesses to factory-match various drum sizes.
Drums 8" and 10" in diameter come with 1.6mm True Hoops®, while 12"-18" come with 2.3mm. All snare drums come with 3.0mm True Hoops®.
STM™ - Suspension Tom Mount
DW’s patented STM™ (suspension tom mount) system allows drums to vibrate freely, allowing maximum resonance while securely holding the drum in place. Because there are no washers or grommets inhibiting the lug rod receiver, choking is reduced and tuning is as easy as ever.
