    Remember DW is, and has always been, a custom builder. I'm sure they only listed the most common sizes but would build whatever you want.
  2. Wow...good information there!

    I would also love to know when they started using the term Collectors series. I love those 80's DW kits...they are hard to come by. Yours must be especially early!

    It's ok!! The term seems to have become what people call pre 1997 Keller DW kits (even though it is wrong). ;)

    Then why do they call it "Collectors series" in pre 1997 catalogs? I'm going to trust DW catalogs over you I'm afraid!

    The pictures of the badges are interesting, but don't really prove your...

    Genius Switch says that they were called Collectors in 1995, before the Keller shells. You and Marquis say it became Collectors after they stopped using Keller shells. Most people feel the switch...

    The Workshop series came out in the late 90's as a production line kit similar to today's Performance series (i.e. different lugs, limited sizes, configurations, colors, and shells w/o reinforcement...

    I may have to. I'm not getting very far with this.

    Do you have an info you can pass along to back this up, or is this just a hunch? I have 1996 DW catalog that refers to them as Collectors series, but I don't have any catalogs before this.
  13. Is there such thing as a "Pre-Collectors" DW kit?

    I have increasingly seen used DW kits on Ebay and Guitar Center's site being referred to as "Pre-Collectors".

    Sometimes these drums have the gold badge from the 2000's, so I know they really are...
