AMAZING! Every drummer and studio needs this drum set



4/4 WTS Artistry Series (3pc); WTS Artistry Series Snare

What can I say? If I could speak all the languages in the world, it still would not be enough to describe how amazing this drum set is. Even better... Sam and Laura are genuine and good people. You will not find a better group, top to bottom. They have the best product, hands down, but their care and dedication some how rivals the gravity of this amazing drum set.

There’s so many things this drum set can do, that your regular lug kit cannot. You think your are limited to single tuning? Wrong. Different ply heads can get you the sound you want... and you can tune on the fly! Resonance? This kit has it in spades. Fewer holes in the shell means sonic heaven. Remove all the lugs... that’s where you’re at: sonic heaven. Did I mention instant tuning? If I was so inclined - and often I am - I tune the kit to the key of the song. In seconds! Speaking of tuning... the WTS is quicker to handle than your traditional lug shell. I find it quicker to replace the top and bottom head with the WTS, than a traditional lug and key.

My unboxing reaction: When I first got the kit, I was sure the toms would be my absolute favorite part. They are amazing. Everything I hoped they would be... but the kick blew my mind. It’s shallower than your standard with more depth and punch. The snare... even better. I’ve never had a wood snare play so well in live settings. This thing cuts like it’s made or aluminum, but has the warmth you expect from maple.

What more can I say? Lots... but I will only say this: You need to track this kit down and sit behind it. Your ears need to hear and your body needs to feel. Then you will truly understand what your mind is thinking already - AMAZING! Every drummer needs one. Every studio is worthless without one. If you can’t find a retailer... please come find me at a show. You can demo to your hearts desire.

I love this kit, and I know you will, too!

Thanks Welch Team! 😘

Most Versatile Snare EVER!



WTS Artistry Series Snare

When I first met the guys at WTS at NAMM 2019 and played the Artistry Series Snare - I was blown away. I am the Music Director at 12Stone Church in Atlanta, GA. We have 8 campuses, a studio, and several other venues that completely use volunteer musicians. While we love our volunteers, we don't have many pro level musicians with expert tuning and drum tech experience. The ability to take the complexity out of tuning drums for us was super intriguing to me.

We now own 3 Artistry snares! They're amazing. The hype is real! Its a bit tricky and laborious to find your perfect top and bottom head combo to acquire your sound, but once you do, and master the art of changing their heads, the rest is simple. The best, purest, versatile crack there is. You can hear everything that is great about this snare and all the options that come with it with the simple cranking of the tensioner.

We use these snares exclusively both for our live broadcast and in the studio. Couldn't be more pleased. Sam is the man too! Super great customer service! Get one... or 8... you won't be sorry.
