New WHD 2016 drum kit range launches

The WHD Birch 4 Piece Jazz Kit has 6-ply birch sheels, 1.5mm flange drum hoops and Remo batter heads.

Each model, except the cocktail drum kit, is available as either a shell pack, drum kit (shells and hardware) or complete kit (shells, hardware and cymbals).

WHD has launched its new 2016 series of drum kits, which are available exclusively from Gear4music.

The range is available in a variety of new finishes and configurations to suit a number of musical applications and genres.

Each kit, except the cocktail drum kit, is available as either a shell pack, drum kit (shells and hardware) or as a complete kit (shells, hardware and WHD Pro cymbals).

Here’s an outline of all the new kits in the range:

WHD Birch 4 Piece Jazz Drum Kit – Natural

The WHD Birch 4 Piece Jazz drums are part of WHD's new Birch Series of drum kits. With features usually reserved for a higher price bracket, this kit has 6-ply birch shells, 1.5mm flange drum hoops and Remo batter drum heads.

The 12x8” tom drum is mounted to the kit by a suspension mount attached to the drum's lugs. This means the shell remains an entire piece of wood and produces a sound that has a greater resonance and long lasting sustain. The triple flange hoops allow the Remo UK batter heads to vibrate more freely, adding further sustain to the open, colourful tone of the drum.

The WHD Birch 4 Piece Jazz Shell Pack has smaller kick drum and tom drums, which allow for more accurate drum tuning with greater fine tuning flexibility. Its high, pop-like tones make this shell pack perfect for jazz, fusion and pop music. This pack is a modern and popular configuration, which not only sounds and looks great but also saves space on stage because of its compact size.

Shell pack - £339.99
Shell and hardware pack - £439.99
Complete kit (shells, hardware and cymbals) - £639.99

WHD Birch 5 Piece Short American Fusion Drum Kit – Green Fade

With features usually reserved for a higher price bracket, this kit has 6-ply birch shells, 1.5mm triple flange drum hoops and Remo batter drum heads allowing ambitious drummers the opportunity to own a high specification kit at an affordable price.

The WHD Birch 5 Piece Short American Fusion Drum Kit, Green Fade features a rock and fusion hybrid configuration making this a very diverse kit which is suitable for almost any type of music. The combination of short stack toms and fusion drum diameters provide a punchy, pop-like sound with a shorter resonance with greater fine tuning flexibility and the larger kick drum and floor continue to provide the lower bass tones.

Shell pack - £399.99
Shell and hardware pack - £499.99
Complete Kit (shells, hardware and cymbals) - £699.99

WHD Birch 5 Piece Rock Drum Kit – Purple Fade

Like other models in the 2016 WHD range, the Rock drum kit has features normally reserved for a higher price bracket, this kit has 6-ply birch shells, 1.5mm flange drum hoops and Remo batter drum heads. The configuration is set up for serious rock beats with a 22x16” kick drum, which has an improved low-end response. The suspension-mounted rack tom means that sound is uncompromised.

Shell Pack: £399.99
Shell and Hardware Pack: £499.99
Complete Kit (Shells, hardware and cymbals): £699.99

WHD Birch 5 Piece Fusion Drum Kit – Tobacco Burst

The WHD Birch 5 Piece Fusion Drum Kit – Tobacco Burst has smaller kick drum and tom drums which allow for more accurate drum tuning with greater fine tuning flexibility. Its high, pop-like tones make this shell pack perfect for jazz, fusion and pop music. This pack is a modern and popular configuration, which not only sounds and looks great but also saves space on stage because of its smaller size.

Like the other kits in the series, the fusion drum kit boasts 6-ply birch shells, Remo batter heads, 1.5mm triple flange hoops and a suspension mounted tom. The suspension mounting allows for greater resonance and long lasting sustain.

Shell Pack: £399.99
Shell and Hardware Pack: £499.99

WHD Birch 5 Piece Rock Custom Drum Kit – Green Burst 

The WHD Birch 5 Piece Rock Custom Shell Pack, Green Burst is a modern, rock drum configuration with one tom tom drum and two floor toms. With the larger sized drums offering an improved low end response, its lower, heavier tone make this beautifully finished shell pack perfect for rock, indie and metal music.

The Rock Custom drums boast 6-ply birch shells, Remo batter heads, 1.5mm triple flange hoops and a suspension mounted tom. The suspension mounting allows for greater resonance and long lasting sustain.

Shell pack: £499.99

Complete Kit: (Shells, hardware, and cymbals): £799.99

WHD Birch Cocktail Drum Kit – Sunburst 

The WHD Birch Cocktail Drum Kit is a portable drum kit that combines the sound of kick drum and floor tom drum into one single drum. Furthermore, this kit has been designed to save space and be easy to transport whilst maintaining all the features and sounds as a conventional drum kit. Also included are a 5” cowbell, kick drum pedal and a double cymbal holder, producing a kit that is a retro reminder of older cocktail kits but has been updated and modified with modern features.

The Cocktail Drum Kit is made from 6-ply Birch shells, and has Remo batter heads, 1.5mm triple flange hoops and an attractive sunburst finish.

The shells produces a loud, cutting tone that boosts the high frequencies whilst maintaining a good, low-end punch. The 10x5.5” snare drum has a coated Remo UK batter head and the remaining drums have clear Remo UK batter heads, all of which are held in place by 1.5mm triple flange drum hoops.
