DW's Latest SSC Technology, Now Available on Collector's Series Drums


In an ongoing effort to offer drummers a variety of tonal possibilities, as well as the latest in advanced shell technology, DW has announced the introduction of SSC (Specialized Shell Configuration) as an option on all maple Collector's Series drums. SSC is the culmination of years of experimentation with the benefits of grain orientation. Patented shell technologies such as VLT (Vertical Low Timbre), diagonally laminated X-Shells and now VLX, a combination of the two, provide drummers with a multitude of sonic customization options.

Drum Workshop Executive Vice President and resident Drum Designer, John Good, comments, "SSC is great because it combines everything we've worked towards for so many years. We want to let drummers customize their look and their sound. SSC is a DW recommended shell configuration, but we invite drummers everywhere to create their own SSC. The best part is that it doesn't cost a penny more than any other DW Custom Shop kit!"

SSC Shell Technology is currently being used by legendary drummer Neil Peart and the two are featured in a video explaining the features and benefits of SSC @ Good explains, "Neil has been using a combination of our Custom Shop shell technologies since his R30 tour. So, who better to help get the message to the masses than Neil himself? He's such an influential player and really has an ear for how these shell advancements can improve his sound. He's also a willing student. He really wants to learn what goes into his massive tour kits." MAG Throw-Off
