Show Off Your DW Kit

More pictures can be found here:

This a vintage purple lacquer pre- collectors kit in the sizes 8x8, 10x9, 12x10, 14x12, 16x14 and 22x18 (I left the 24x18'' behind)

They year of make is estimated by the seller at 1994. A special year for me, as Pink Floyd embarked on their ''Division Bell'' tour. A tour on which Gary Wallis and Nick Mason's DW kits always have been a huge inspiration for me too.


We now think the kit comes from October the 11th 1989, concerning the stamp inside the shells (01189) Also the badge and tom bracket proof to be DW's first model.

I can't wait to receive them from over the other side of the big pool.

Sideways and backwards - it's making me dizzy - ha ha.

Great looking set.
I guess you didn't want to get your Ludwigs in Black Oyster because it's too common on those, but not on DW's?

DW Performance Series in Dark Cherry Stain lacquer.
Added the white head and t-rods.
Fell in love with the color the day they were introduced and got a killer deal on a new set from Sweetwater.
DW does not advertise the color any longer but they still make them.

Those are beautiful drum kits, fellas!!! I especially am fond of the double-kick DW kit that's a few pages back in this thread (can't remember what page). :)

I still dont really have any really decent photos of my DW other than this recently from before I bought it from the shop who took the photos.

Out of shot are 14" and 16" floor toms.
