    Default DW Turn Around Time?

    Anybody on here with a realistic idea on DW turn around time nowadays? I ordered my kit back in October 2005 and it took 13 months to build. I am trying to order another floor tom for that same kit, but that long wait time is scaring me away. Especially with covid shut downs.

    Any help would be appreciated!

    I ordered a collectors from DW mid December of last year. I picked up my kit in early August. They shut down for Christmas break for 2 weeks and the Covid shut down was 3 months or so. Minus all that, it was 4 months, and that included shipping from California to Ontario, and then out to B.C. Not bad.

    3 - 4 months is the current wait. They have been doing a great job even threw covid.

    Well, is it VLT, HLT, MVC, BLT or HIV? Very important distinctions here.

    BLT extra toasted. John Good has a story about DW’s foray into frying Bacon that we’re going to love.

    I just love watching him tap on drum shells and trying to convince the viewer that it’s producing a symphony tones. PT Barnum would be proud.
