DW Jazz Series
Choosing your own custom kit to reflect your individual style and personality: That’s what it’s all about. From a virtually endless combination of Exotic, Lacquer, Satin Oil, Hard Satin and FinishPly™ finishes, to any one of four drum hardware color options, this is the chance to make a statement all your own. Whether you decide on a retro-style 7771 rail tom mount, heavy-duty slide-track tom mount, or no mount at all, the decision is yours. Why not add a 770 bass drum-mounted cymbal arm or maybe a bass drum lifter for your smaller 18” kick? Whatever your needs, our goal is to tailor a Jazz Series kit to your exact specifications.
Next, consider all of the standard features that make DW Jazz Drums a truly unique instrument. True, we hand-select only the finest North American hard rock maple and gum wood for our shells, and yes, we painstakingly match our drums using our patented Timbre Matching process to ensure optimal tunability; but Jazz Series drums also come standard with a host of other features that make them one serious set of drums. Case in point, each Jazz Series kit comes standard with die-cast hoops, a DW first. Next, each kit comes fitted with DW coated/crimped heads made by Remo U.S.A. Even the floor tom legs are forged from aluminum to offer a lighter-weight option for working drummers. In short, no detail has been overlooked. Once you see and hear them for yourself, we think you’ll agree: DW Jazz Drums are in a class all their own.
Bosphorus – play one and believe!
At Bosphorus, not much has changed since the 17th century. We still make cymbals in the timehonored traditional way – completely by hand. No stamped sheets of metal. No computer guided machine hammers. From the wood burning ovens to the meticulous hand hammering, each step moves towards one goal: the creation of a unique musical instrument. The woody stick sound. The deep mysterious tone. The dark warm spread underneath. It's all there... call it the soul of the cymbal.
Once you hear the difference, you won't settle for anything less. Play one and believe!
