Welch has created a modern drum unlike anything else on the market...The tuning possibilities between snare, toms and bass drums are infinite and can be applied in seconds...The tonal quality of these drums, regardless of their pitch, is phenomenal; bell-clear, clean, with no unwanted variances from one part of the head to another...I simply can’t imagine a better set-up for studio operations...

Reviewed:

It sounds great. It looks beautiful and the tuning system makes everything so much easier. I know a lot of drummers who told me “I love drums so much but I HATE tuning them” But this set is also crazy because you can in different ways now hit the drum while doing a beat on it while changing the tone of it simultaneously that’s revolutionary... 5 stars hands down! If there were more stars than that I would rank higher.

WTS drums are truly extraordinary instruments, they sound incredible with every turn! They exude a little bit of the old civil war drums while being something totally new! I’ve used them on many sessions and they deliver strong every time!
