Cornerstone series drums are the direct result of Dixon’s focus on the fundamental needs of the working drummer – look, sound and performance.
Our drum kits feature a cool new brand image, warm woody tone and quality Dixon craftsmanship, powered by a Maple/Red Silkwood hybrid shell finished in gloss natural or gloss piano black.
Built to suit any style and leave an impression, Dixon Cornerstone drums get the gig.
North American Maple combined with dense Red Silkwood delivers a balance of classic tone and clarity for ultimate versatility, giving drummers full control of their sound by responding to the multitude of drumhead options available today.
7 ply (2+5) North American Maple / Red Silkwood Hybrid Shells. 6.7mm thickness for Toms and Floor Tom / 7.2mm for Bass Drum.
Counter cut 45-degree bearing edges precision cut for drumhead contact with the shells core to optimize Cornerstone’s hybrid effect.
Dixon’s renowned craftsmanship starts with world-class shell construction, but doesn’t end until each drum is skillfully finished to showcase the natural beauty of Cornerstone’s North American Maple and the elegance of our piano black lacquer.
