An 8-ply maple tom with pro cut bearing edges.

Add to that all-Maple shells, dual-oval tube lugs, STM (Suspension Tom Mounts), True- Pitch Tuning System and so much more, and you'll agree, it doesn't get much more serious than this.

Contrary to the other reviews, I found the PDP Platinum Series to be an outstanding set of drums for the price. 8ply north american hardrock maple w/ perfect bearing edges on all 4 of the drums I received. They sounded decent w/ the factory heads and great w/ upgraded heads. The hardware was all 1st rate w/the exception of the hoops, they had to be upgraded as well. The best finishes and wraps are no longer avaailable as an option and the 7x8",and 10x13" toms were also eliminated. The only two platinum series snare drums that are worth mentioning is the 4x13" piccolo and the 5x14 solid 1ply maple, both sound great and will knock your socks off for the price especially...No doubt they too will be eliminated from the product line..."would'nt want to compete w/the Dubs" The 24" virgin bass drum and the 2 big floor toms, 16 & 18" are absolute cannons and made/built well, built to last. Quality control is top notch, and the finishply that I got was so thick it was notched at the area where it overlapped, under the hoops. Attention to detail! I believe you would be hard pressed to find a set equally as good for the price. Too bad they dont offer High Gloss Piano Black Lacquer, or a high quality White Marine Pearl, or Deep Ruby Glass Glitter, or a high quality Silver Sparkle or Champagne Sparkle, or...or...or...
44 year veteran. New set every year for the past 8 and many others over the years. This is a very average maple tom but, as usual, the price doubles when the DW name is invoked. At this price, I'd expect at least 2.3mm hoops instead of the poor quality 2mm PDP uses. Also the wrap is very thin and obviously cheap, with bulges etc. almost as if even the woodgrain is showing through. Like the edges and the sound but just as good on others such as Catalina Maple at 1/2 the price.
Pros: Perfect bearing edges, no gap between the finish and shell. sounds amazing when using an aquarian power dot II on batter and evans G1 resonant. Smooth action in the tension rods. Cons: It came in a regular old cardboard box, no packing material, but i got lucky, as ups didn't batter the box.
