DW announces additional Vertical Grain Exotics
|At winter Namm show 2006 Drum Workshop has announced five distinct new Vertical Grain Exotic (VGE) woods to its existing line of Collector's Series Exotic finish options. Drum workshop also exhibits at Musikmesse Frankfurt in March 2006. In addition to offering a half dozen woods from around the globe, drummers can now choose from an array of rare finds that are vertically and artistically matched to create a unique high-end look.
The woods are hand-selected by Drum Workshop Executive Vice President and drum designer, John Good. "There were always so many gorgeous exotic woods that we just couldn't use because we laid everything up horizontally," Good said. "The issue was getting these logs in a large enough dimension to completely finish a bass drum. With Vertical Grain Exotics, we've found a way to take what nature has already made beautiful and turn it into a work of art."
VGE finishes are available in Macassar Ebony, Red Gum, Movingue, Koa and Cocobolo and are finished over DW's custom all-maple or all-birch shells. They can be combined with any of DW's Custom or Specialty Lacquer finishes and drum hardware colors.
DW's Collector's Series Vertical Grain Exotics also feature DW's Timbre Matching process, True-Pitch Tuning, S.T.M. (suspension tom mount) system, Built-In Bottom with VLT technology and more.
