Collector's Series® Jazz
Shells built for expression.
The DW Jazz Series™ offers all the quality and innovation of the modern age with a tonal spectrum reminiscent of mid-century bebop.
About Collector's Series Jazz
The DW Jazz Series™ were inspired by a 20th century form that is uniquely American. These shells feature a 3-ply Gumwood core for round tone that's suitable for bebop to pop in live and studio environments.
DW Jazz Drums
Hybrid Gum Shells
These 7-ply Hybrid Gum shells start with a 3-ply core of thick 1/20" Gumwood, which is sandwiched between Maple, Mahogany, or Cherry plies without reinforcement hoops. The result is a brighter tone with medium sustain.
These shells are cut with the same vintage-style, rounded “butter” bearing edge as the Classics Series with an outer round over and a 60-degree inner edge. This edge enhances the shell's range and resonance.
Give your Jazz Series kit a striking veneer or lacquer, shells sized for any style, and a choice of hardware colors—while preserving mid-century tones.
FinishesFrom FinishPly™ to hand-sprayed lacquer or satin oil, all DW kits can be customized with finishes to make it yours.
