DW DDLM2214MB *Limited Edition* Design Series 4pc Shell Pack Midnight Blue
DW DDLM2214MB *Limited Edition* Design Series 4pc Shell Pack - Midnight Blue is a 4-piece Shell Pack, highly versatile all-maple kit featuring Drum Workshops' most popular sizes in F.A.S.T (Fundamentally Accurate-Sized Tom) depths.
DW have taken their custom drum-making know-how and created a line of drums designed to raise the bar yet again. Design Series® is a DW kit through and through. From a newly-designed mini Turret lug, to Remo USA®-made Suede® "outline" logo heads and a sleek silver and white badge, its looks are fresh, yet decidedly DW. Also included are pro features such as STM™ (Suspension Tom Mounts), True-Pitch® Tuning, MAG™ throw-off, low-mass die cast claw hooks, and more. Last but certainly not least, there's the sound. These are thicker North American Maple shells that pack a punch. Incorporating HVLT™ (Vertical Low Timbre shell with a horizontal outer ply), Design Series® shells are full, resonant, and responsive.

John Good and the DW Custom Shell Shop in California bring you HVLT™, the same technology that is standard on our latest Collector's Series® Cherry drums. HVLT grain orientation and slightly thicker 1/32" plies of North American maple are a potent combination that delivers a full tonal spectrum, attack, punch, and sonic versatility. Design Series® shells are tailored for just about every style of music.
Design Series® 8" toms feature a 7-ply HVLT construction, while the snares feature 10-ply HVX, and the 10"-18", along with all bass drums, feature 8-ply HVLT construction.
Design Series® drums are available exclusively in Chrome. This includes lugs, hoops, STM™, and tom legs. The Design Series "turret lug" is a scaled-down version of the famous round DW lug (a step smaller from Performance Series™), while the snare drums get a unique "propeller" look all their own.
Design Series® are available exclusively with Chrome Standard Triple Flange Hoops to give your drums a great versatile sound. Steel Triple Flange Hoops come in graduated weights (1.6mm for 8 & 10" toms, 2.3mm for 12-18" toms and snare).
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. (U.S. Patent #5520083)
Design Series® comes with the MAG™ throw-off finished in Chrome. A purposefully simple design, the MAG™ (U.S. Patent No. 7,902,444) is a workhorse drop throw-off with horizontal tension adjustment and smooth, easy-adjust action. It gets its name from a clever magnet that's integrated into the body of the throw-off. When the handle is in the up position, it won’t release without a slight tug. When it does release it throws the strainer completely off the head to avoid any strainer buzz.
To give drummers even more control over their sound, DW created its patented True-Pitch® rod system. The rods feature 5mm threads rather than the 12/24 that’s standard on most other drums. To compare, there is 1 thread every 0.8mm on our True-Pitch® rods (about 20% more threads), versus 1 thread every 1.05mm on most other drums.
