Yeah, I think my MIJ was made with those same exotic woods and to those exacting specs as well....

Seriously, all credit to DW. They really have built a pretty special company from nothing.

Thanks for posting this!

Is it just me or does that dude that's tapping on the plys of wood look like he's thinking, "Ok, John, whatever you say, now please just give me my new drum set, I have an album to finish."

well you see what's he's setting out to display there don't you. A Horizontal ply has a pitch, a vertical ply has another pitch, and a diagonal ply has yet another pitch... and with all these combinations..you can alter the tone with in a single shell...
Remind that Gretsch had a (horizontal or vertical (can never remember) as it's third ply- M/G/G/G/G/ M which visually tricked the eye (into thinking it was a maple) that colors tone; they had that since the mid 50s

I understand that the types of wood and the grain orientation have an effect on the sound of a drum shell.....But then it gets a bunch of hardware attached to it and any one of several types of rims and drumheads can be utilized that will also have an effect on the final sound....And don't forget, there's the individual player's tuning preference, too.

I appreciate John Good's passion and DW is quite an operation. For the life of me I can't understand why I just don't like the drums...but I don't. Maybe it's all the choices that make me second guess myself all the time...Should I have oriented the grain diagonally? Or, would it have been better to go with a three ply bubinga/poplar mahogany combo instead of wenge/maple/walnut?...I get lost in all that kind of stuff. Same with all the finish options and custom options...all of it just takes away the consistency of sound associated to a specific brand. I don't really know what the DW sound is supposed to be.

I will say that DW are the most impressive "tapping on" drums in the store! Every time I walk by a kit and tap on a DW tom, they always resonate for a long time...and I always remember that as being a desirable quality to look for....when tapping.

And then the drummer or sound engineer slaps tape, moongel or a pre-muffled head on the toms to deaden the tone.

I love drums, but sometimes I think too much time and thought goes into making a drum, which in turn jacks up the price.

Right. exactly. And the explanation for that is that "You can always take away the resonance with muffling, but you can't ADD it....(but, that was before the R.I.M.S. types of mounts came onto the scene).

For sure the bubinga/poplar/mahogany combo is the way to go.

I thought that was obvious...
