CollectorThe features of the top class series are as follows: Thin drum body with reinforcing straps achieve a more focused tone. Obtainable in almost any imaginable size. The classical round DW-Toms are used. The sets are available in three different finishes: Satin Oil, Finish ply, and high gloss.
Now to the features that are exclusively for the DW "Collector" series: the most important matter has to be "Timbre Matching". That a blank drum makes a sound when beaten is no sensation, but when the tones are named and stamped in the drum and each drum is chosen from (Major third to Fifths/quints) for shellsets is something special, and this is unique for DW. The idea behind this technique is, that a drum is only included within a shellset if its tone fits to the overall sound. Furthermore, when enlarging the shellset, it is possible to order a drum on the basis of its tonal language. Thus achieving an exact tonal alignment.
DW use a screw thread by the name of "True Pitch" in order to adjust the tone slightly. Do not underestimate the effect of this function...
A more precise and finer tuning is possible.
