SSC (North American hard rock maple) shells




Each of DW's grain orientation types — VLT, HVLT, VLX, and X — has a profound effect on a drum's fundamental pitch. DW's Specialized Shell Configuration (SSC) simplifies things for the end-user. SSC just means that John Good selects the best type of shell construction for each drum size.

  • PURE MAPLE SHELLS

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.

VLT™ (Vertical Low Timbre)

In experimenting with different exotic woods as alternate shell making materials, DW's Custom Shell Shop discovered that in addition to the different tonal qualities inherent in every unique type of wood, alterations in grain direction can also greatly influence sound. In a VLT™ shell, the outermost and innermost plies run vertically, rather than a traditionally horizontal configuration.

The vertical grain places less tension on the shell, allowing it to vibrate more freely, resulting in the lowered fundamental pitch. For those players who prefer a lower overall tone while still maintaining maximum resonance and attack, VLT™ can be ordered as an option on all Collector's Series® Pure drums.

True Hoops

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™ (U.S. Patents 8,563,841 and 9,390,692) 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 Eco-X Project drums as well as all Collector’s, Classic's and Jazz Series 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™.
