Medford, OR (PRWEB) January 3, 2009
Direct marketer of music gear, Musician's Friend, announces the much-anticipated arrival of Drum Workshop (DW) drums for sale online starting in January 2009. Musician's Friend is proud to offer the entire Eco-X drum line that incorporates DW's environmentally conscious approach to drum making. Drummers can preorder the Eco-X snare drum, tom drum, bass drum, and 5-piece drum shell pack that are expected to ship by mid-January.
After 30 years of high-end drum manufacturing, DW has begun distributing its drums to online retailers including Musician's Friend, a retailer that historically has only carried [DW drum hardware. Acclaimed by many of the world's top players, DW drums, pedals, and hardware are known for their professional features and appealing looks.
DW's newest line, the Eco-X, features drums constructed from birch and bamboo, a renewable resource now used as an alternative to tropical hardwoods. The drums deliver excellent sonic characteristics with increased high-end response along with deep, low-end presence from every drum in the DW Eco-X 5-Piece Drum Shell Pack. This shell pack includes the player's choice of 20" or 22" bass, 10" x 8" and 12" x 9" toms, 14" x 12" floor tom, and 5-1/2" x 14" snare.
Eco-X drums are built with DW's pro features including the True Pitch® system that has tension rods with a finer thread count for more accurate drum tuning, as well as proportional counter hoops and DW heads by Remo. Eco-X drums also feature suspension tom mounts on the shells for unimpeded resonance across the entire sonic spectrum. Three Eco-X drums are sold separately. These include the DW Eco-X Bass Drum, as well as the DW Eco-X Tom Drum and the DW Eco-X Snare Drum that all sing with the rich, lucid tone drummers have come to expect from DW.
Drummers who want to proclaim their loyalty to the DW brand will find a large selection of accessories bearing the company's logo at Musician's Friend. Products include DW T-shirts, stools, baseball caps, and more.
