A Lifetime of Inspiration
Inspired by John Good’s memories of growing up in Northern Italy, the DW Collector’s Series 50th Anniversary Limited-Edition 6-Piece Shell Pack matches persimmon and spruce, two of the woods that stimulated his lifelong passion for crafting the perfect sound.
Only 100 of these kits will be produced, including a certificate of authenticity signed by John Good and Don Lombardi.
The drums are constructed from a combination of persimmon, a hard-tone wood similar to purpleheart that produces thick attack and projection, combined with spruce that boosts warmth and tonality. Hardware and cymbals are sold separately.
This shell pack includes 8 x 10” and 9 x 12” mounted toms, 12 x 14” and 14 x 16” floor toms, an 18 x 22” kick drum, and a 6.5 x 14” snare.
Handcrafted and Harmonious
These HVLT™ shells are handcrafted in our California custom shop, featuring a veneer of rare, quilted maple and fitted with inlaid maple and rosewood 50th Anniversary badges and bands. These drums are finished in a burnt toast burst lacquer and equipped with antique gold hardware.
