    This is a great setup without a doubt. I hope someone new is reading this and can understand that this kit is a base for something awesome. The quality is great!!!! You do not have to spend a lot of cash to get great sound. These drums will sing like a bird, but it's all about what YOU want them to sound like. I could go on and on about heads and tuning... YOU find the heads you like, YOU tune em up. BOTTOM LINE, these are great drums GET A SET!!

      Comments about PDP by DW Concept Maple by DW 7-Piece Shell Pack:

      It was time to purchase a new drum kit as my previous kit still had the deep tom designs. I was lucky enough to be able to play several kits side by side. It was narrowed down by simple feel and sound to the 7 pc Gretsch & the PDP Concept Maple 7 pc. The PDP had the better sound. I know these are DW Lite's made in Chi-knee but the quality & craftsmanship was still there. Once out of the box I did notice a few spiral buffing marks on the finish but I was looking for them. Not noticeable if you weren't. A few water marks as well. The hardware was nice and shiny. A few finger smudges but overall nice. Pride is still being implemented here! Way to go DW. Bearing edges were all smooth and I decided to put the stock heads on just to see how much ring I would get. (previous feedback I have read on this kit all stated the stock heads were junk & terrible) I know what the stock heads are. They are Remo Clear Ambassadors that you buy at your store. Printed for DW in China. Once heads were on & tightened properly I was blown away! I am no metal head when it comes to drumming & I use Ambassadors (typically the X's). I even purchased a whole set of Ambassador X's for this kit & they arrived the day before. Still haven't put them on the kit. (it has been 2+ weeks) I have been in studio & recorded a session with the kit as well as a couple full blown rehearsals. If you play similar to Neil Peart, Phill Collins, Police, Kansas etc the stock heads are perfect. If you are a heavy hitter, go for your emperors or 2 ply's. You are just killing the drum sound. Anyway, right out of the box these drums are wonderful. The kick drum was the only thing I was worried about. It is deeper than my old kit while all the other drums are shallower. We recorded it with head on & mic outside the head. WOW! I was used to a mic hole in my reso bass drum head. I will have to get used to solid head on. That's me not the drum. The floor toms are great! Tap the head & they resonate forever.

      Comments about PDP by DW Concept Maple by DW 7-Piece Shell Pack:

      I purchased a set of DW Performance Series drums and after six months, got a severe case of buyer's remorse. They were a finish ply six piece set in Pewter metalflake, which looked great on stage, but I did not feel they produced an overall tonal palate and timbre that was so much better than the 5-yr. old Gretsch Catalina Maple set I traded in, especially considering the cost difference. Most of the PDP products were made in Mexico at the time I purchased the Gretsch kit, but China has all but dominated nearly every facet of the musical instrument industry, and I hoped that DW oversight and quality control would provide a level of insurance to getting a decent product at a reasonable price. I was right in my thoughts on this, but there are some upgrades/changes that need to be made if you intend to do any serious gigging or recording work with these shells. First, save all the clear Remo batters that come with the kit as spare resonant heads. Get USA-made Remo Pinstripe batters or Controlled Sound batter heads for your toms, and maybe a Powerstroke for your bass. The snare deserves either an Emperor or Ambassador batter, again with the controlled sound spot. The three rack toms and the 14" floor tom all need decent 2.0-2.3mm flanged hoops with quality chrome plating, and this is for both the upper and lower rims. The snare that comes with the kit appears to have a 2.0mm set of rims, and this maple drum has absolutely tremendous crack, focus, and projection for a wood shell. Ditto for the 16" floor tom. I purchased both the heads and rims online, and got WorldMax hardware made in Taiwan that is both beautiful and very heavy duty. I also had to put nylon or plastic lock washers under each of the tuning rods on each drum, and on both heads, to maintain tuning stability. Think of this set as a "diamond in the rough," and after the aforementioned mods, a genuine diamond. You're going to need to plan for an additional couple hundred, but worth it.

        This drum set is the top of the line in the PDP Series. I ordered the PDP Concept Maple Series Red-to-Black-Sparkle-Fade drum set, I could not be happier with this drum set! I had no problem setting this drum set up. It plays well, just like DW, who makes PDP. This is one of the best drum sets out there! If you are looking for a drum set, ORDER THIS ONE!!!

          I'm a 63 years old drummer, but have been playing since I was 10! I have played it ALL! Jazz, country, rock, Gospel,,and this set will perform any where you put them! I have owned Ludwig, Pearl, Tama,Yamaha, and have a 5 piece set of DW's, These drums will stay right along side of ANY! I've tried several combinations of heads, and reso heads, and they sound good with many different heads. Truly, if you want a GREAT SET of drums without selling a KIDNEY,,Try these, you won't be disappointed!
