These drums sing

WTS Artistry Series Shell Pack; WTS Artistry Series Snare

These drums sing, and hold their tone in a beautiful fundamental way that drums should, but sometimes don't. The first time I sat down at a WTS kit I was completely sold. Tuning on the fly is now actually possible!

These drums sing at any tuning!

With multiple sweet spots, these drums sing at any tuning! Playing in a 2-piece group, every note is important. Now I can change my melodic intervals while the guitar player tunes! No more lugs spinning loose at a gig from playing the rims. The affects that heat, humidity & altitude changes have on tuning while on tour can be fixed before the guitar player can plug in their pedalboard at soundcheck. Amazing!

And recording? Fugetaboutit! I only have to worry about mic placement. No more chasing down unwanted overtones. They record as big as my 14/18/24 Ludwigs, as consistent as my 12/16/20 DWs & as subtle as my vintage 12/16/22 Slingerlands. Those are all in the closet now.

Simply put: No matter the situation these drums allow me to be me without compromise - you can't ask for more than that.

Amazing house kit at Relix Studio

I mean, its an amazing kit. I would say that sometimes with a house kit you walk in the room and it needs a lot of work, sometimes it needs very little, but this one needed no work. It just sounded great out of the box, I honestly didn’t touch it. I just put maybe a little bit of muting on it just to take a ring out or two and that was it.

I love that you can [tune] everything so fast

I was actually well impressed with the kit [at Relix Studio]. When we were playing the songs, because they have different tonality on the snare that I like depending on the song, for this particular setting to be able to just turn the knob so quickly without having to tune it, that was one of the best features for me. I really like the depth of the kick, the tom and the snare and it was quite different but I love the fact that you can do everything so fast. Excellent job on your part.

I really really liked the kit. I’ve seen them online, I follow a drummer online named Steve Pruitt who is one of your endorsers and he’s always talking about Welch Tuning Systems so it was nice to finally use them. I think it's one of the most innovative tuning systems for drums I’ve ever seen, so I really hope the company does well, I hope to see more of them in future and hope I get to play on them more in the future.

[WTS] is amazing, nice and thuddy when I want it to, you can play one song like Bonham and then tune it up within seconds to go to Max Roach territory and just crush it. It’s amazing, can’t get enough.
