DWe introduces the first-ever acoustic and electronic convertible drum set with wireless technology. Blending authentic DW shells with innovative electronics, DWe is DW, Electrified.
DWe can be played as a Pure Maple™ acoustic drum set, or as a completely wireless electronic kit. All components come standard to easily convert the kit from acoustic to electronic. Built on a platform of American-made, handcrafted acoustic shells, and a proprietary wireless ecosystem, DWe lets you decide how you want to play given any situation. Be prepared for anything from practicing in your bedroom to playing live on the world’s biggest stages, recording in the studio to creating your own content.
DWe introduces a new era of wireless electronic drums. Using a proprietary wireless technology, your drums are ready to play straight out of the box with no wires or cables required. Simply sit down and play to connect your drums to your included wireless DrumLink™ hub that connects to your computer or audio interface. Set up and tear down has never been easier.
DWe is designed and manufactured in the DW Drums factory in California. Leveraging five decades of American made craftsmanship and innovation, DWe delivers the same premium quality you expect from Drum Workshop. Every DWe e33™ shell is constructed of nine-ply Pure North American Hard Rock Maple in a patented 333™ shell configuration. Outfitted with a true bearing edge on each drum and a mylar resonant head, DWe drums produce a subtle, low volume tone for the player to hear the pitch of the shell when played electronically.
And each shell is easily converted to a true acoustic DW drum that delivers everything you expect from DW Drums and more. The VLT™ (Vertical Low Timbre) orientation reduces tension on the shell and provides low-end punch mixed with maximum resonance and attack.
Electronic innovation is built into every DWe kit.
Intuitive features including a digiMAG snare throw off, pressure sensing cross stick detection and pitch bend capabilities make DWe the most authentic and natural playing electronic kit you have ever experienced.
DWe leverages an innovative wireless trigger solution that enables up to 10 zones and 16 velocities per drum, giving you a truly authentic range of dynamics for your playing.
The combination of true DW shells mounted with the STM™ suspension system and graduated hoops, coupled with real metal cymbals featuring 3 playing zones, edge choke and 360-degree playing surfaces make DWe engineered for expression.
Powered by the included DW Soundworks™ software, DWe drums connect to your computer through a low-latency wireless connection via the provided DrumLink USB hub. Enabling up to 30 active instruments at a time, the hub also has the capability to convert wireless signals into MIDI data for DW Soundworks or third-party software integration. Using the included R-Tap Audio Processor, DWe is easy to setup and control.
DW Soundworks has been designed by DW to deliver a powerful software solution that puts the drummer in control of their sound. With an intuitive, simple interface and advanced controls for those who want to fine tune every detail, DW Soundworks delivers the most authentic experience whether it is powering DWe or being used as a standalone VST. DWe has been designed to integrate into your workflow seamlessly. Connect DW Soundworks to any DAW, provide multi-channel outputs or hook it up to your favorite module.
With DW Drums samples recorded at the DW factory to the exact specifications of the manufacturer, DWe includes the most authentic representation of DW sounds anywhere. And with the ability to add new sound packs to your library whenever you want, there is no better way to customize your sound. DW Soundworks allows for complete sound customization and creation using the advanced trigger settings and editing capabilities, providing up to 18 layers of multi-articulation definition per instrument.
Every part of the playing experience has been designed with the drummer in mind. From the simplicity of wireless and industry leading hardware, to invisibly embedded technology and user-friendly software, the innovation in DWe is designed to let you focus on your playing.
DWe leverages generations of quality standards and expertise from both Drum Workshop and Roland Corporation to deliver best-in-class dependability.
