For years, drum makers have preferred maple and birch for their resonant tonal qualities. Maple is a traditional shell material that provides low-end punch, warmth, and attack. Available with or without 3-ply reinforcement hoops in a variety of grain configurations, DW custom shop maple shells are more versatile and customizable than ever before. Toms 8-13" are 6-ply, while 14" and bigger are 7-ply. Bass drums are 7-ply and snare drums are 10-ply (with 6-ply reinforcement hoops).
DW Custom Shop standard birch shells come without reinforcement hoops and provide a bright, high-end fundamental that many drummers prefer. All birch shells are 8-ply except for 8" toms which are 7-ply. Standard shells come standard with a short grain inner ply to provide added-low end. All available SSC shell options can also be custom ordered.
