Works Perfectly



WTS Artistry Series Shell Pack; WTS Artistry Series Snare

I am really happy that I bought one of these drum sets!

It was definitely worth to make it travel all over to Berlin, Germany! It arrived safe and perfectly packed!
The first recording during a live session on the German radio was great. It sounded super warm which I was really looking for. And like everyone says the tuning system works perfectly and well lets also mention that it is the most beautiful drum set I ever owned.

This instrument is very special and different from what is out there!

AMAZING! Every drummer and studio needs this drum set



WTS Artistry Series Shell Pack; 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! 😘
