Drum Workshop is well known for their high quality, highly customizable instruments.
The variety of wood types, finishes and shell configurations that DW offers is unique.
In their facility in Oxnard, California, DW’s highly skilled employees are hand-crafting drum sets to suit almost any musical and visual needs.
From sorting out the wood and cutting it into the right size, to finishing the shells and installing the hardware, nearly every step is done by hand.
Due to that you always get a unique instrument that really stands for itself, while always fulfilling the quality standards of DW.
No matter if you want hybrid shells made of different wood types – or your own logo painted on the shells, here everything is made possible.
To see lumber being turned into a high class drum kit is a beautiful transformation. While the idea of those wooden pieces becoming drumshells is very abstract in the beginning, you really start to see the whole picture from step to step.
We had the chance to look behind the scenes of DW‘s drum manufacturing process and talk to Scott Donnell about how it’s done.
Keep in mind how many people were involved in building your instrument the next time you sit down behind your kit!
