Launch of the WTS Artistry Series Drums!

Updated: Oct 3, 2022

The moment you have been waiting for is here!

We are proud to present the WTS Artistry Series™, the FIRST line of acoustic drums featuring the revolutionary Welch Tuning ­­System™ (WTS) drum kit hardware.

The best sounding drums are the drums with the Welch Tuning System (WTS)!

But what is the Welch Tuning System? A major upgrade from the traditional tension rod hardware, our patented tensioning system of pulleys and cable brings both drum heads into tune in seconds with the turn of a single handle (no drum key required); it’s as easy as tuning a guitar string!

What are some features of the WTS Artistry Series cable tuned drums?

The WTS Artistry Series cable tuned drums feature 100% maple shells hand-crafted in the USA, premium elegant finishes, and our innovative Welch Tuning System (WTS) drum kit hardware.

These revolutionary drums are now available in the 4/4 shell packs (full-size), the 3/4 shell pack (portable-size), and snare drums!

Learn more about the other benefits and features of the WTS Artistry Series drums and the Welch Tuning System here!

How can I demo the Welch Tuning System?

The WTS Artistry Series and Welch Tuning System help you Live In Tune™!

Designed by a working drummer, the WTS Artistry Series cable tuned drums and the Welch Tuning System were built to solve the headaches of tuning drums and expand the versatility of the drum set. The goal of the team at Welch Tuning Systems, Inc. is to share these benefits with every drummer so that they too can Live in Tune™!

CEO and co-founder, Samuel Welch, shares his experiences with the WTS Artistry Series drums:

“I play in a lot of different venues, and rarely had time to properly tune my drums before a performance. Now it’s so easy to tune to any room or stage… I never have to worry about playing out of tune again! One of the biggest benefits I have found is that I am no longer stuck with one tuning for the whole show. I can change the sound of my entire kit, mid-performance, in only 30 seconds! I’ve been using the Welch Tuning System for the last couple of years and it has totally changed my perception of what is possible behind a drum set.”

Now you can pre-order the best sounding drums on Kickstarter from January 24 through February 14, 2019!

The team at Welch Tuning Systems, Inc. successfully debuted our prototype of WTS at the NAMM Show in 2018.

Now, the game-changing WTS Artistry Series drums are ready for full production. Drummers will be able to pre-order the first shell packs and snares off the production line at a deeply discounted rate on Kickstarter from January 24 (the first day of the NAMM Show!) through February 14, 2019. Retailers will also be able to place purchase orders at the NAMM Show.
