DW's flagship line of Custom Drums in North American Hard Rock Maple or Select Heartwood Birch, Collector's Series is the original American Made custom drum set. Choose from a myriad of state-of-the art California Custom Shop shell configurations and a seemingly endless array of high-end finishes and drum hardware color options to create your very own dream set-up.

SSC stands for Specialized Shell Configuration. It's the culmination of more than a decade of DW Custom Shop shell technology and represents the state-of-the-art in sonic customization. So what is SSC? Put simply, it's DW's recommended shell configuration that utilizes X, VLT and VLX shell technologies. Of course, you can custom order a custom DW kit anyway you want it, but DW has simplified the process by optimizing a particular type of shell for each drum size.

Shell Types Include:

  • All-Maple or All-Birch (horizontal grain)
  • VLT (Vertical Low Timbre)
  • Built-In-Bottom
  • X-Shells

DW Custom Shop finishes are only limited by your imagination; the possibilities are virtually endless.
