Design Series Hardware Features and Options

Hardware Colors ▼


Design Series® drums are available exclusively in Chrome. This includes lugs, hoops, STM™, and tom legs. The Design Series "turret lug" is a scaled-down version of the famous round DW lug (a step smaller from Performance Series™), while the snare drums get a unique "propeller" look all their own. Keep in mind, our stands are available in Chrome, Black Nickel, and 24 Karat Gold.

Graduated Counter Hoops ▼


Design Series® are available exclusively with Chrome Standard Triple Flange Hoops to give your drums a great versatile sound. Steel Triple Flange Hoops come in graduated weights (1.6mm for 8 & 10" toms, 2.3mm for 12-18" toms and snare).

STM™ - Suspension Tom Mount ▼


DW’s patented STM™ (suspension tom mount) system allows drums to vibrate freely, allowing maximum resonance while securely holding the drum in place. Because there are no washers or grommets inhibiting the lug rod receiver, choking is reduced and tuning is as easy as ever. (U.S. Patent #5520083)

DW MAG™ Snare Throw-off System ▼


DW Throwoffs Design Series® comes with the MAG™ throw-off finished in Chrome. A purposefully simple design, the MAG™ (U.S. Patent No. 7,902,444) is a workhorse drop throw-off with horizontal tension adjustment and smooth, easy-adjust action. It gets its name from a clever magnet that's integrated into the body of the throw-off. When the handle is in the up position, it won’t release without a slight tug. When it does release it throws the strainer completely off the head to avoid any strainer buzz.

True-Pitch® Tuning Rods ▼


To give drummers even more control over their sound, DW created its patented True-Pitch® rod system. The rods feature 5mm threads rather than the 12/24 that’s standard on most other drums. To compare, there is 1 thread every 0.8mm on our True-Pitch® rods (about 20% more threads), versus 1 thread every 1.05mm on most other drums. The result is a more exacting tuning process. True-Pitch® rods are only available in chrome and gold.
