    Hi

    this is my first thread in this category so my question might sound a bit..silly

    Every DW kit i have seen has only one tom and one floor tom.Could someone tell me why ?

    BTW i think they are the best drums out there.Incredible sound and quality
    Ex E-kits:
    ''Lernean Hydra'' ( a bounche of roland pads with a td-6 module)
    ''Lucy'' (Diamond electronic drums with a td-12 module)
    current E-kit
    ''Cherry Gretschy Lady'' (Gretsch Catalina Ash 6 piece A to E kit-Roland td20 module-A to E cymbals)

    A-kit
    " Mrs.Catalina'' (Gretsch Catalina maple 6 piece kit-Paiste signature+Masterwork custom made cymbals)

    I think the 4 piece set-up is popular. But I've seen far more occurences of 5, 6 or 7 peice configurations. Check out the DW Shop for Drum porn.

    What is it you like about DW's sound? People keep referring to it as boomy. Somehow I've gotten infatuated with DW. I have DW hardware on my TD20. I'm very close to picking up a 7 piece DW kit tomorrow...

            Here's mine. I have yet to see a DW kit with only two toms. Where are you looking?

              A number of the DW Classic setups I've seen are 1-up, 1-down setups. http://www.dwdrums.com/drums/classics/index.htm

                  Yeah, looking around it seems that DW is producing a lot of "classic" configurations. I just have never seen one in the flesh.

                    Picked up the DW yesterday. I'm a lucky guy!

                    Cymbal shopping today. I'm leaning towards the Sabian AAXs.

                      I know this is an old thread, but here's a picture of my dw's. A seven piece in a tobacco burst finish. The second snare is actually a Pearl piccolo, but if you look closely between the splash cymbals above the bass drum you'll see my solid shell dw craviotto snare with gold hardware.

                            Hey drummerian,

                            You have an embarrassment of riches there. Very nice indeed.

                              Cheers Hercules, but it has taken years of collecting. There's more then that too. A shed load of cymbals, hardware, snare drums etc. But I'm a working drummer, so everything has paid for itself.
                              I now trigger the dw's with a TD-20 and ddrum triggers, purely for the sake of amplification without the hassle of having to sound check and eq every gig.
