DW Drum Kit OSX Icons – Vol 1

The other day on a transcontinental flight to NYC, I was playing with some of the imagery I created for the Drum Workshop Kitbuilder 2.0 project that launched in January.

The result was this set of twelve high resolution 512 px Mac OS X icons that look (and sound) killer in the dock.

My friends at DW were also gracious enough to let me distribute these icons. Let me know what you think.

DW Kitbuilder 2.0 Web App

If you have a few minutes -- okay, more like 18 minutes, check out this thorough tutorial that Drum Workshop (DW) made for the new Kitbuilder 2.0 web app that I designed and directed -- completely built in HTML5.

Coinciding with this January’s NAMM show, Drum Workshop and Speedshape launched a first of its kind web app that allows drum enthusiasts to build their own custom kits — KitBuilder 2.0.

Supported on various browsers and mobile devices including touch devices like iPhone and iPad, Kitbuilder 2.0 allows for users to visualize a myriad of beautiful drum and hardware finishes using three archetype sets, or customize a photographic overhead kit schematic using templates of some of the world’s most popular drummers such as Tommy Lee, Dave Grohl, Neil Peart, Sheila E. or Steve Perkins. Thousands of images and models offer limitless possibilities of drums, hardware, pedals, accessories, finishes, assorted patterns, finishes and color combinations.

Based on DW’s patented SSC technology, users can sample and compare different sound variations, download images of their personalized drum kits for wallpaper, easily share with friends via Facebook, Twitter and TinyURL, generate a quote and then pick-up their new set from a list of DW Drum dealers. All mobile-friendly HTML5 compliant. No sheisse.

So whip out your ipad, but when you're done, make sure to share your custom DW kit on Facebook or Twitter.
