The guiding principle at Pacific Drums & Percussion is a simple one: that compromise should never be a factor when choosing a set of drums. It's true that we're not all shopping with rock-star budgets, but that doesn't mean we can't get an amazing drum set. Since they were founded in 2000, PDP has made it their mission to bring affordable options to beginners and casual drummers as well as experienced percussionists looking for "daily driver" skins. Whichever of those groups you fall into, it's a safe bet that there are PDP drums and hardware perfect for you.
In fact, if the instruments in the Pacific Drums & Percussion lineup look familiar, that's no surprise: they started in association with Drum Workshop, and their sets have a lot in common with their partner's. At the same time, they've got a personality that's completely their own - one that has landed them onstage with pro drummers like Aaron Spears, Adrian Ost and Stephen Perkins. Taking the stage with Usher, Powerman 5000 and Jane's Addiction has certainly made it clear that PDP drums have the chops to perform at a professional level.
Of course, matching the instrument to your own experience and skill level is as important with PDP as it is with any other drum maker. If you're just starting out, the Z5 series are excellent choices for making your drumming debut. Built to cater to students, their durable hardwood shells will take everything you have to throw at them while you develop your skills. They're even available with cymbals and stands in the 5-Piece Junior Drum Set if you're looking to get everything you need to start playing right away. On the other hand, if you're a seasoned drummer looking for a high-end kit, you might prefer to try the Concept series on for size. Maple shells, suspension tom mounts and premium hardware make these drums a joy to play.
One look through the Pacific Drums & Percussion lineup is all you need to understand that, although the brand was created with a focus on affordability, they've gone to serious lengths to make sure their quality can stand up to the competition as well. That really sums up PDP in a nutshell: not only are they great-sounding, long-lasting drums, but your wallet will thank you for choosing them, too.
