WHAT IS WTS?
Every WTS Artistry Series drum features the revolutionary Welch Tuning System™ (WTS).
A system of pulleys and cable bring both heads into tune with the turn of a single handle. No more tension rods. No more drum key!
One point of adjustment locks the tension for the entire drum... no more tension rods loosening while you play!
The custom engineered worm gear allows for fine tuning and ultimate control!
Self-adjusting pulleys allow tension to equalize around the whole drum, resulting in beautifully tuned drums at any pitch.
All pulleys are mounted to the drum hoops, meaning significantly less drum hardware in contact with the shell and up to 90% less holes drilled in the shell, allowing the drum shells to breath and resonate to their full potential.
Artistically designed to maintain the look of the drums we know and love, our precision engineered die-cast hardware adds even more life to the most beautiful drums.
