DW, also known as Drum Workshop, were initially best known for drum hardware such as stands, racks and clamps but they rapidly started making drums and drum kits, and have recently added own-brand drumsticks to their range.

They encourage people to assemble the kit of their choice and offer a wide variety of custom options and unusual specialist drums.
