For years, drum makers have preferred maple and birch for their resonant tonal qualities. Maple is a traditional shell material that provides low-end punch, warmth, and attack. Available with or without 3-ply reinforcement hoops in a variety of grain configurations, DW custom shop maple shells are more versatile and customizable than ever before. Standard shells come standard with a short grain inner ply to provide added-low end. Starting with the best wood, DW then applies its unique SSC technology to create some of the best-sounding drums ever made. Discover their commitment to quality for yourself in every drum and piece of DW hardware you buy.
