Welcome to the WTS Drums Booth!


We launched into this year's NAMM Show bigger and better than ever with new drums and products, new displays, and a larger booth. Throughout the three days of the NAMM Show, our WTS Drums booth was almost always packed, but luckily we caught a few shots of our display before the show began:



Here's a tour of the booth and our newest WTS products on day 1 of the 2022 NAMM Show from WTS CEO/Founder, Samuel Welch:



Don't miss out! Pre-orders on the WTS Epiphany Series and WTS Steve Pruitt Signature Snare are still available, so be sure to order before we run out!

NAMM Media Preview Day


WTS Drums was honored to be chosen for the 2022 NAMM Show's Media Preview Day. Hosted the day before the NAMM Show floor opens each year, less than 50 companies are given the opportunity to join a "first look" reception where they display new music instruments, technology, and products to a diverse media audience.


We took the opportunity to showcase our new WTS Epiphany Series shell pack and snare!
