Below are some of our most recent offerings into this realm of such rare and limited quantity pieces. Not only are these Limited Editions crafted to be visually stunning, but equally stunning in their meticulous construction, and unique components.

World-famous drum builder Gregg Keplinger has hand-crafted only 50 of these metal shells that have been carefully assembled in California by DW's team of skilled craftsmen. Its raw beauty is true to the Keplinger tradition, while its state-of-the-art functionality can be attributed to the latest DW drum hardware advancements, such as True-Hoops™, True-Tone Snare Wires™, True-Pitch 50 Tuning, MAG Throw-Off System with 3P butt-plate, and DW Heads by Remo USA. Complemented with Black Nickel hardware and nestled in a deluxe padded carrying case, the Black Iron snare is an extremely rare limited edition drum that's made to be played.

TIMELESS TIMBER OAK
DESTINED TO BE A TIMELESS CLASSIC
In the beginning, there was Collector's Series® Timeless Timber Maple, and a legend was born. Then, almost a decade later, drummers were introduced to Timeless Timber Birch, a highly-coveted limited edition. We are proud to introduce the latest addition to the Timeless Timber legacy: Timeless Timber Oak. At more than 1,500 years old, this is a very special wood. These prized logs were dredged from Romania's Olt River which feeds into the famed Danube and eventually spills into the Black Sea. As is the case with all water-salvaged Timeless lumber, it is extremely dense and very resonant. Timeless Timber River Oak is also dark, warm, and very musical.
Finished in Natural Satin Lacquer, complimented by custom-plated Antique Bronze hardware, and outfitted with all-new Lux Leather Bass Drum Hoops, less than 100 of these stunning 6-piece sets will ever be made. For those that have yearned to own a piece of drum-making history, this is the time.
