        Comments about PDP Concept Maple by DW 5-Piece Shell Pack:

        I have been a drummer for over 25 years and have played numerous kits - whether that be friends kits, own kits, back lined kits, etc... A venue I regularly play at has a PDP CX Maple and I was so blown away by it, that I went out and bought one myself. Granted, this is not the CX series, but it's a maple PDP. You can not find a kit in this price range that compares in my opinion. It's essentially a DW kit (same hardware almost) at 1/4 the cost, obviously not the same quality, but this set is definitely under-priced for what you get. I use mine full time for practice, gigging, etc. and I get positive feedback from every sound guy I have worked with. You get a great tone if you put on some quality heads and tune them well. Don't go out and spend your money on a Pearl Vision kit or some other garbage, buy this kit!

          Comments about PDP Concept Maple by DW 5-Piece Shell Pack:

          This kit is absolutely beautiful. I have the red to black fade. The stock heads are just ok. I upgraded to Evans G2 clear and Genera resonant heads and these drums just sing. I can't stop playing them. DW really hit a winner here. The quality is up there with DW lines. If you can't afford the DW line don't hestitate to grab these, under a grand for a maple kit is a steal!!!

          Comments about PDP Concept Maple by DW 5-Piece Shell Pack:

          The stock heads are very hard to tune to taste. I replaced the snare heads (both top and bottom) with a new set of Evans and it tuned up right away. The toms are OK for home playing but I would change them before playing a gig. Great looking set for any application, I bought the transparent Cherry finish and it is gorgeous. I do wish the front bass drum head was ported though.

          Worth The Money

                Comments about PDP Concept Maple by DW 5-Piece Shell Pack:

                I purchased this kit in October 2013 in Pearlescent White. Aesthetically, this kit is gorgeous. STM Suspension mounting system is legit. It gives ANY drummer almost countless ways to set up their tom arrangements. The white lacquer finish is very nice. It has a sparkle blended in that exactly matches my DW Performance snare. That goes to show how well attention to detail is with this kit. Upon opening, I inspected the shells for hours, and there were only a couple minor blemishes-and honestly, I expected more. The wood is a Chinese maple. I inspected the laminates, and found very few black/brown dead rings. The quality of the wood was in the 'acceptable' range for even a professional drummer. The 10'' and kick were flawless. The 12'' had a few putty fills on the bearing edges which I sanded. And the 16'' bearing edge had to be fine sanded as there was a belly on the edge on one spot. The snare was well-made, but it was the only item I didn't care for. I found it to be very ringy, regardless of the heads I used. As aforementioned, I switched it out for a DW Performance snare (which is God-like!). The dual turret lugs are cool, but the chrome scratches easily. Gotta be careful when transporting these drums. Another really cool quality about these drums is that they can be customized cost-efficiently. At gigs, I play my 10'' and 16'', and at home, I add on the 12''. Even better, you can buy add on toms from 8''-18'', and they are very affordable.

                As for the sound, the toms are great. At home I use muffling rings or moongel to dampen overtones. Yes, there are overtones, but all drums have them, and that's the beauty of drums. People can complain, but when you're playing a gig, those overtones can't even be heard. At home, they are, and that's what moongel is for. I've played Mapex, Pearl, Yamaha and DW, and these are relatively close in sound. All I can say is, I'm happy with them!

                Drumming can be a VERY expensive hobby. To save money without sacrificing quality makes it all the more better.
