Musikmesse 2018: Drum Workshop debuts electronic drum brand DWe featuring trigger shells, rack systems and more

Drum Workshop has unveiled its newly created electronic drum brand DWe at Musikmesse 2018.

Working in conjunction with long-time partner GEWA Music, the new range of trigger shells, hardware and rack systems represent Drum Workshop’s entry into the electronic drum arena and will be featured alongside GEWA’s highly anticipated G9 Drummer’s Workstation, electronic pads and cymbals.

This marks the first-ever product collaboration between the California-based manufacturer and the German musical instrument manufacturer and distributor.

DWe all-wood trigger shells feature Design Series mini turret lugs and are available in Carbon Fiber Finishply and Exotic Walnut finishes. They also feature True-Rebound mesh heads by Remo USA and modular Trigger Zone playing surfaces.

The complete line of newly designed DWe stands, pedals and rack systems includes a host of DW drummer-friendly features tailored for the electronic player.

“DW’s mission has always been to solve problems for drummers, so they can focus on their craft and be free to concentrate on what really matters – the music,” said DW founder and chief product officer, Don Lombardi.

“DW Electronics is an extension of our philosophy. Electronic drums should be reliable, effortless and deliver a seamless playing experience. We’re incredibly proud to make our entré into the world of electronic drums with the debut of the DWe product line which has been years in the making.”

Those visiting Musikmesse can check out the new DWe gear at booth C80, Hall 9.0.
