This is a very very good kit, especially for the money, very well built, looks very good, and has a very good set up once its all done, how some don't have. This is a great kit, but I do agree with the other review, only thing is just replace the heads, I personally like Aquarian heads, Super Kick II and the Powerstroke tom heads. All in all amazing kit for the money.

I have major mixed emotions about this kit. When receiving the kit one of the bass drums was crushed. Musicians friend was was very prompt to replace. Took everyone's advice and went ahead and replaced the bass heads with emad 2 batters and eq3 resonate. I've spent countless hours with a 40+ year drummer trying to tune the bass drums to match we found that the bearing edge has some bad spots in it. When talking to the sales rep on the phone I told him I wanted kick ports. He told me that they came with them and they are trained to go by the pictures. Well of course they didn't and when I called they said sorry you will have to buy them. Now I am stuck with 2 bass drums, one sounds awesome and one sounds horrible. I'll spend the money next time and buy a much higher quality kit.

Comments about PDP by DW Double Drive 8-Piece Shell Pack:

Just got mine last night. GREAT drumset. I'm use to just a single bass drum, so it's taking me a little to get use to it. But i'm in love with it. The heads are good too. The other reviews said the heads were bad, but mine tuned up nicely and quickly. They sound good too.

      Comments about PDP by DW Double Drive 8-Piece Shell Pack:

      I use this drum set everywhere I go, and they totally rock. Although it takes a good drum tuner to make them sound the best, muffle control hampers any problems. Luckily, after tuning them for a while, they sound monstrous and professional. They certainly are geared for rock/hard rock/metal players which is why I got them. Excellent product.

        With a bit of tuning, and either paper towel or muffle rings, you'll get this monstrous kit to truly shine! The racks are versatile and can hold A LOT of stuff, and this set is pleasing to the eye.

        To whomever is buying this set, you're going to end up buying the hardware, "Cage", cymbals everything you'll need to even get started! The ad is very deceiving if you don't read it closely!

            This is a great drum kit for the cost. Sounds great and the response and tone is great for these drums.
            I would recommend this kit to anyone who is looking to upgrade from their current kits. NO NEED to spend large $$$ on higher end kits unless you got that swing!!!

                Drum set is massive for the price, with no sacrifice of quality. It's got a beautiful gun metal wrap, on a very great sounding poplar shell. Kit looks amazing with onyx evans black heads, and due to the built in rack tom clamps, it saves me weight on my rack. Love this kit, love PDP/DW!

                    Played Tama all through the 80's and was very leary of buying anything else. I hadn't played in years and got this set on the advice from my son. I was very pleased! They sound great and are easier to tune than the last Tama set I owned. With the money I saved I spent more on Cymbals and Hardware! Going to be playing clubs and anywhere we can be heard! Playing everything from AC/DC to Slayer!! They look like they will hold up to the road.
