These drums sing at any tuning!

Product(s):

WTS Artistry Series Shell Pack; WTS Artistry Series Snare

Reviewed:

With multiple sweet spots, these drums sing at any tuning! Playing in a 2-piece group, every note is important. Now I can change my melodic intervals while the guitar player tunes! No more lugs spinning loose at a gig from playing the rims. The affects that heat, humidity & altitude changes have on tuning while on tour can be fixed before the guitar player can plug in their pedalboard at soundcheck. Amazing!

And recording? Fugetaboutit! I only have to worry about mic placement. No more chasing down unwanted overtones. They record as big as my 14/18/24 Ludwigs, as consistent as my 12/16/20 DWs & as subtle as my vintage 12/16/22 Slingerlands. Those are all in the closet now.

Simply put: No matter the situation these drums allow me to be me without compromise - you can't ask for more than that.

Amazing house kit at Relix Studio

Product(s):

WTS Artistry Series Shell Pack; WTS Artistry Series Snare

Reviewed:

I mean, its an amazing kit. I would say that sometimes with a house kit you walk in the room and it needs a lot of work, sometimes it needs very little, but this one needed no work. It just sounded great out of the box, I honestly didn’t touch it. I just put maybe a little bit of muting on it just to take a ring out or two and that was it.

I love that you can [tune] everything so fast

Product(s):

WTS Artistry Series Shell Pack; WTS Artistry Series Snare

Reviewed:

I was actually well impressed with the kit [at Relix Studio]. When we were playing the songs, because they have different tonality on the snare that I like depending on the song, for this particular setting to be able to just turn the knob so quickly without having to tune it, that was one of the best features for me. I really like the depth of the kick, the tom and the snare and it was quite different but I love the fact that you can do everything so fast. Excellent job on your part.
