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

Love this kit!!! Have been playing since 1974 on mostly vintage Slingerlands and Rogers kits. Decided to give these PDP Concept maples a whirl. Came packaged extremely well. Set up was a snap and drums were tuned very well. Just needed a little tweaking. I loved the 7 pc shell pack so much I ordered the 16x18 floor tom to compliment the bottom end!! I highly recommend this kit. You will not be disappointed!!!!

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

        There are several drum companies that make 7 piece drum kits just like this, the gretsch catalina, premier, tama superstar classic, etc. I think this is the best one. If you are looking into all of these, I strongly suggest the pdp. I have owned it for over 2 years. And I love it. The i bought and sold the gretsch because it has low quality tom mounts that take away all resonance.

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

            Out of the box, have some quality heads to put on these drums. I've had this kit now going on two years. They've been in studio, on tour, and in small venues. Still look gorgeous, and sound great. I play metal, & progressive rock. This kits sound is very versitile, and handles both sounds. You can get Bonham, or Phill Collins out of these, which are two different sounds. My only complaint is what others have said. My rack toms will move from time to time. Sound wise, and ease of tuning, they're as good as other drummers DW's.
            Excellent, versitile, and sturdy enough to tour with. That's saying something!

            I have been playing drums since the sixty's, have owned several top brands. Nothing comes close to the Concept 7 pc. for the money.The sound is great, and the finish on these drums is as good as it gets.

            Overall, this is a great drumset. A little tuning and this thing was ready to go. The bass drum is killer. It's a sharp punch that cuts through the rest of the set. The snare is very loud but is sensitive enough to where you can still pick out the ghost notes. The snare also has a darker tone. The toms are incredible. You can tune them high and they will sing. Tune them low and the still have the "bend, pitch, and fall" that most drummers like. The only thing I wasn't completely happy with was the hardware for the rack toms. I had to put all my strength into tightening it so that they wouldn't slide out of place when I was playing. If you tighten it enough then you don't have to worry about it moving. Great set for the money.

              This is the most amazing kit out there for the price. I recently got mine and it is amazing! When I unboxed it, it had an amazing sound but it wasn't the exact sound that I was looking for, but these drums are extremely easy to tune and have a good sound and tone to it. Oh and also, I got the Pearlescent White which looks amazing! Specially under lights!

                  I have the PDP X7 Maple (which is what PDP called the last run model). Same exact drums though... From what I've read, these drums are same quality as a DW kit; only made in China to cut cost and with different name brand badges. I don't know if I could be any happier with a drum set unless I just had money to burn and got a top of the line DW kit just for bragging rights. The fit and finish of the shells and the hardware are all what I'd consider top-knotch. I'm very proud of this kit and they're well worth what I paid for them. Right out of the box I changed all the heads over to batter dip Remo Powerstrokes, and man do they sound great. Has a rich, full, open sound with wall-shaking projection, and no muffles on the toms or bass were needed. The kit came with a nice pillow for the bass drum, but nope, not needed. These drums are that nice, (If you know how to tune drums)... I did need a couple small pieces of tape on top and bottom of snare to cut the ring down but that not atypical. Very easy to tune and the toms have a nice sweet-spot where they all walk down in pitch. Start with small tom; get it as low as you can without the head being loose or off-pitch sounding and then tune the rest by ear from there. No regrets at all. Looks great, sounds great, plays great, solid hardware, and stays in tune a long time. Just what you'd expect from a DW kit but save the extra cash for some cymbals!!! Get it!

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

                  I did months of research. I considered buying the Yamaha Stage Customs, Tama Superstar, and several others. I play all kinds of music from Jazz to heavy Metal. This kit suits them all. As for sound, after getting everything tuned it sounds incredible. Particularly, I am in love with the kick and snare sound. I know the Yamaha and Tama probably have better mounting systems. I took longer than I hoped setting up my toms and finding the angles I wanted, but after I found the right spot I just tightened them down and they haven't moved since. For the price you get other top of the line features not found on other mid level kits.
