DW’s Performance Series LowProTravel Kit was named “Best in Show” at the 2018 Winter NAMM. Inspired by the success of DW’s line of ultra-shallow, single-headed Design Series Pancake Gong and Pancake Bass drums, DW has developed a complete set of lightweight, durable and portable drums designed for use in small spaces and by performers on the go. Available in a 3-piece and 4-piece configurations of USA-made, DW Performance Series build-quality shells available in durable White Marine and Black Diamond FinishPly options, this new drumset includes DW hardware and packs up into a deluxe, rolling travel case which is sold separately.
‘The initial inspiration was to create a more durable, stable and playable practice kit. However, after getting feedback from some of our artists, we realized we had something on our hands that could be miked up and used as a small cocktail kit for live gigs,’ said Drum Workshop Inc. Vice President of Product Development, Rich Sikra. ‘We feel like the LowPro Kit really solves a lot of problems for drummers, which has always been DW’s mission statement.’
The DW Performance Series LowPro Travel kit 3-piece configuration includes 10” & 13” toms and a 20” bass drum and weighs just over 22 pounds. The 4-piece configuration includes 10” & 13” toms, 12” Snom and 20” bass drum and weighs less than 29 pounds. The ultra-shallow LowPro drum shells are DW Performance Series build-quality, 9-ply, all-maple, VLT construction created in DW’s Custom Shop located in Oxnard, California.
