The Perfect Blend of Tradition and Innovation

DWe combines the world-renowned craftsmanship of DW with cutting-edge technology. These acoustic-electronic convertible drums are equipped with authentic DW, Gretsch and Slingerland sounds, revolutionary wireless capabilities, and the meticulous attention to detail that has made DW "The Drummer's Choice" since 1972.

Endless Possibilities

Use the e-kit setup for quieter practice at home, to write and record, or to just explore endless sampling possibilities.

When it's time to gig, simply remove the triggers, swap out the mesh heads for the included mylar acoustic heads, and you're good to go...all done with just a drum key!
