Better than expected

Comments about Design Series Acrylic 5-Piece Shell Pack with Chrome Hardware:

I wanted to mix things up a bit as I have been playing the same Pork Pie kit for 25 years. I decided I wanted an acrylic kit. I have read so many reviews on acrylic kits and I've come to the conclusion that nobody really hates them and it's kind of hard to find a review where someone despises them. After talking to a sales associate at Guitar Center he simply told me that If I was going to buy an acrylic kit that I had to buy a DW kit because of the hardware alone, he was right. The DW hardware on this kit is exceptional, the hoops, lugs, tension rods, Mag throw off on the snare, spurs ect.. I actually prefer the small lugs found on the Design series rather than the same old big lugs on the Collectors series. The bass drum hoops on the Kit are the best hoops I've ever owned, they're perfect and glossy. I instantly replace the heads on the toms and floor toms because I heard that the stock heads were so-so. I ended up putting clear emperors on them, they tune up and sound incredible, honestly, my band could not stop complimenting the sound of the kit. The bass drum is not as thick as I though it would or should be, kinda thin and flexible until you install hoops then everything gets solid. So far, the snare is the weak point in the kit for me, I'm so spoiled by some incredible custom Pork Pie snare drums in my collection. I will definitely change heads on the snare and batter head of the kick to my old faithful Evans emad2. In conclusion the kit is totally incredible and the toms sound as good as it gets for live performances, they cut so good.. This kit is a great buy and I would stack it up against any kit on the market. Buy the way, the way this kit was packaged blew my mind. Someone packing these kits in Taiwan is a genius,lol.

Comments about Design Series Acrylic 5-Piece Shell Pack with Chrome Hardware:

I am not really a musician but a collector. This drum shells from DW are both great looking and great sounding. The heads are good quality so I let them on and tune them. May be the batter head of the bass drum is not as good but still delivery. Chrome hardware looks fantástic. The acrylic easily get stain with fingerprints but it is as easy clean up. Snare is crisp and loud as it soul de. Too much for just practice but great for live situations.

Best Uses

    Comments about Design Series Acrylic 5-Piece Shell Pack with Chrome Hardware:

    They are heavy. They are beautiful. They were packaged very well. Some assembly required. I got a great deal. The muffler pillows look funky, since everything is clear......I hope the adhesive on the Velcro holds. I got some "studio rings" for the anticipated overtones. I got lined cases to protect against scratches. Did I mention they're heavy? Rack tom L-arms are not included, floor tom legs are.
