Following the footsteps of the much-talked-about Pure Purpleheart snare drums, are a complete line of custom drums made exclusively from this distinct hardwood. Deriving its name for its purple hue, the shells are even more dense than oak and provide ample attack and punch.
A sound unlike traditional drum-making woods, such as maple or birch, Pure Purpleheart drums can be custom ordered with VLT grain orientation in any DW Custom Shop size.
(Horizontal Outside + Vertical Low Timbre)
One of our newest grain orientation technologies, HVLT™ (Horizontal/Vertical Low Timber) is similar to our popular VLT™ (Vertical Low Timbre) shell configuration in that most of the plies within the shell are vertical. This creates less tension on the shell to provide an overall lower note. The difference with HVLT™ is that the outer ply is horizontal. With more tension on the shell, it offers slightly more low-midrange frequencies. HVLT™ comes standard on Collector’s Series® Cherry and Design Series™ drums.
This is a brand new drum in it's original box. It was briefly removed from the packaging for a quick photo shoot.
