As a drummer with many years of experience, I recently bought the PDP CX kit in silver sparkle and I must say that this kit has blown me away! I have owned a lot of drums in the last 30 years, including my prized DW kit that I got 2 years ago..Anyway, I got the CX's and set them up next to the DW's in my studio. Here were my initial notes: The CX kit out of the box sounded SO close to the DW's...I remember thinking that wow Don (Lombardi) and John (Good) of DW have done a great job at this one!! Upon urging from a DW rep that I met at PASIC show here in Columbus, I went and got new heads for the kit as the stock heads will get you started but are no-means the quality that you can get with REMO's or EVANS, etc...I went with a smooth white Emporers on the batters with clear Ambassador's on the bottoms... Now one thing that I want to point out here, I personnally do not like a double ply head on my DW's as I think the thin shell sounds better with a single ply ( I use coated Ambassadors on the batters with clears on the bottoms) However, with the Pacific having a tad bit thicker shell, the smooth white Emporers/clear Ambassadors combo sounds just incredible....Back to the DW/Pacific comparison with head change....The drums just sing! Its a little different sound than the DW in character, but definitely a kick-butt professional sound that if someone put the same price tag as the DW's on it I would say that it would be justified. Here's the conlcusion I can make IMO...you DO NOT have to spend 3k and up for a DW (unless, you want to have a very customized kit with great re-sale and have deep pockets) kit when with a simple head change you can attain a sound that will completely blow you away with the Pacific CX/LX line....see for yourself :-) The CX kit would also be a great go-to kit for a drummer that wants awesome sound but does not want to lug their prized and expensive kit out to play live exposing it to the elements...I hope that all find this review helpful...if you happen to have any questions please don't hesitate to contact me at cobyutterback@hotmail.comHappy drumming!Cobe

I have owned a pacific CX silver sparkle kit for a year now, and for the most part it is a good sounding kit. I do have some complaints, however. When I received the kit, the bearing edges on the 10 and 14-inch toms were TERRIBLE, with lots of chunks taken out of them. Because of this, I had the toms shipped back to Mexico to be re-edged. Guess what? The factory didn't get it right the second time either, so I had to resort to having the edges professionally re-cut by a third-party custom drum maker. Now, of course, the toms sound great. However, I have had trouble getting Remo Emperor heads to seat on the drums effectively, so if you normally use Remo heads you might want to keep that in mind. The snare sounds OK, but getting all the overtones under control is a hassle. Make sure to keep the tension rods lubricated. Otherwise, they will get stuck and snap in half while you're trying to tune the drum.Pacifics are a pretty good set of gigging drums, although I think the factory's quality control is not up to par. Save yourself the grief and get a set of Tama Superstars for around the same price.

Awesome kit

By Michael27

from Dallas, Texas

I have owned this set for a little over a month. When I went to Guitar Center to buy I was definitely not expecting to get a set that sounded this good for this cheap. The toms and bass sound phenominal, (the snare sounds great too it just doesnt have the exact sound that I prefer.) If you are someone who is looking for a drumset that sounds like a professional drumset and not wanting to spend all of your money on it, this is the way to go!!

value!

By griffin77-cPuAv

from medina, ohio

I bought this set last year when I was deciding between this and a tama rockstar set. I made a good choice, this set is amazing for the price. It plays like a DW. But it does need new heads(evans hydraulics for the toms, and evans emad for the kick) like any other new set. And if you know how to tune you can get the snare to sound pretty good, but it definitely needs a new head as well. Overall this set is worth every penny.

great except snare

By blinkmttfan182

from St. Marys, WV

I have the white onyx set. The hardware isn't bad at all. The only problem I've had with the set is the snare drum. I have tried to tune it for hours on end, and still can't get it perfect. I think the shell may be cut wrong or warped a little.

I've owned this set for about a year now and I couldn't be happier. The 10" tom is especially good. This set produces a nice, warm tone. I wouldn't recommend remo for the the snare head. The stock heads aren't too bad. I say beat those up first and then buy new ones. Buy this set, you won't be disappointed.

Great set!

By Rattlehead--7WZg

I have owned this set for about two weeks and I love it. This is nothing lacking from this set. I love the fusion size and the sound I get from the toms with remo pinstripes. I totally recommend this set to anyone. Buy One!

Unbelievable Bargain

By tjpower

from Post Falls, ID

I just purchased this set for myself to get back into drumming (after an 8 year vacation) and so that my 10 year old sone can learn. What a great kit. The hardware is excellent, the toms and bass are great, but the snare is a little lacking compared to the rest of the kit, hence the 9's above. I added all DW 5000 series hardware (including their awesome double pedal and mathcing Hi-hat stand) as well as 6 Zildjian Custom A Cymbals. WOW!!! This kit is so much better than my last kit 15 years ago. I just added the 16" floor and the 8" tom for a complete 7 piece set. My next investment will be new skins, especially on the snare. Both my son and I are looking forward to having lots of fun!

Nicely Done

By Ucarp36

from Findlay, Ohio

This is the Best I've ever had. The mounted toms have such a good sound. I've had this kit for about 7 months and I can't complain about anything. The hardware is great and is very sturdy. I love pdp.

Sweet

By thaKnockout

from New York

My older brother got this kit back in 2000-2001 and boy is it amazing. Anyone who buys this new is unlucky because they replaced the original snare with a cheap metal one. The original snare was an all maple shell and it is GODLY. You can definately see the DW/Pacific resembleance here. Put nice heads on this, oil up the lugs and you have an amazing drumset rivaling almost any other drumset. PERIOD. :-P

CX Royal Onxy

By Rock Star

from Patchogue, NY

The PDP CX drum set has the ?Dan the Rock Star? stamp of approval! I am a big Keith Moon fan and I bought my Premier drum set in 1982 and thought it was going to be my last drum set. I sat behind the CX drum set and fell in love with the sound and the price. I added the 8? and 16? toms. These drums ?sing? when you play them. I use this set in Play Houses for Musicals. It makes the musicals sound more professional. The actors always comment on how well these drums sound and they don?t over power the singing, it adds to the song. The sound techs don?t yell at me for being too loud or annoying. They like hearing these drums through their headphones. I?m addicted to playing them because they sound so good. The only disappointing aspect is the quality of the finish. It?s a nice finish & color, but it looks like there is dirt in the glue when they put the laminate cover on the drums. You can see the dirt bulge through the cover. Sometimes I focus on the dirt marks and can?t understand why the finish is not smooth like all other drums sets. Over looking the smoothness of the finish, you will love the sound. The other nice feature is how easy they are to disassemble and reassemble. I?m making fewer trips to the car because they are easy to carry. They are very versatile also. I can set the drums up for nice quite jazz using ony the small drums or set up for heavy metal with the larger drums and leave the small drums at home. I highly recommend the PDP CX drums. You will sound like a Rock Star!

Amazing

By Tha ill Chink

from Houston, TX

Wow...This drum set is incredible. Just purchased it today and when I first played it and hit the toms it attacked really well, left the sound rumbling for a good while because of the maple. Compared to my old set which I rate a 2 out of 5. The only thing is the stock heads don't really give that deep sound so I got Remo Coated heads. I bought the set which was orignally a 5 piece but it came with the 16' floor tom which is a +. I bought it with out the pedals or the cymbals since I had my own and only bought the toms and bass drum. WOW...

Awesome set!

By MoonCrab

from Boston, MA

I'm 39, used to play drums as a teen, decided to play again so I went out and bought this set, mainly because it looked so nice especially with the hardware it comes with. You coudn't beat the price. This set is awesome, the only thing you might want to change out is the heads, I put evans Hydraulics on and they sound prestine! I would recommend this set to anyone starting out or even for advanced users.

Great kit - Upgrade the hardware

By Writer49

from Pacific Northwest

See all my reviews

This is a great sounding, playing kit. I've owned it for over a year. I'm the worship leader at church, so I'm playing, rehearsing a bunch and we play a lot of rock gospel. I'm still on the original heads - which I'm looking forward to upgrading soon. If you get the set, get the next higher grade of hardware. I got rid of the stock stuff the second day I had the kit.Fit, finish, and sound on the maple shells is amazing. I'm still learning about all the music these things can make. Get it, you won't be sorry!

Pro sound for a cheap price

By Sheebs

from Overland Park KS

I just tbought this set and i cant believe how good it sounds. It requires very little tuning and is very easy to set up. the reason i didnt give it a 10 in features is because it is only a 5 piece, i woould like to see another rack tom included. I got remo emperors for the toms, a coated ambassador for the snare, and an emad for the bass, and my set just sings, especially the bass which has a distinctive bark. Dont let the price fool you, you are getting a true high end maple set that is stage worthy.

Educator and Performer

By Bryan-Chykq

from Austin, TX

I got the PDP CX in Royal Blue, I like the look and the sound of the maple and the mounting hardware. You cant got wrong for the price. I put the new Evans EMAD bass heads and the new EC2 heads on. You will love this set with a head upgrade. It's also very easy to tune with the 32cc tesnion rods. I do recomend that you spend the extra money for the upgrade heads as ALL the factoy ones a single ply and are full of unwanted overtones.As a former Pearl player, I will say I was a little reserved because of the very thin 6 ply shells. When I took the bass drum out of the box, the shell would flex more than a Pearl or Yamaha will. If you have seen a pearl or yamaha kit the shells are much thicker for 6 plys.This PDP CX series is one of the best sounding kits right out of the box for the money, but get the upgraded heads!!!!

This kit is amazing. I dont know what the person below me is talking about. I got mine a few weeks ago it is amazing, right out of the box its just low and warm, its very very nice. I got mine in the Royal Onyx color, it is very very sexy looking. This kit sounds so amazing, i cant understand why people wouldnt by this for the price, i have play DW custom kits, the only difference between these and the customs, is shell size difference and custom, thats it, ive talked to people who own DW customs and they said "unless you want a custom finish, dont spend 3grand on a custom, just get a pacific of some sort". These kits are so amazing, i highly recomend this kit to anyone.

Awesome set

Ask me a question

This is an awesome set for intermediate or budget minded pro. These drums sound incredible after putting on evans G2's. The drumheads were the only drawback, but that's with any set if you have a head preferance. This set is also easily expandable with tom add ons. I couldn't be more pleased with my Pacific CX's!

great value

By drummerboy242

from CT

This drumset is the best I've purchased so far. I recently purchased it and right when I pulled it out of the box I was blown away. The two things on this kit you should consider replacing are the mounts for the rack tom; it is kinda flimsy, and I would consider buying some new remo or evans heads for all the drums, even if you decide to expand it. after you put new heads on and tune them correctly, these set of drums will completley blow you away!

Awesome sound, awesome price

By Vince-cuUsH

from Near Philadelphia

See all my reviews

This set sounds great for the money, leaving little to be desired. The toms have infinite resonance, plenty of body, and good volume. Their fusion size, however, limits tunability. The bass drum's huge size puts out some serious low end when tuned correctly with the right head (try Aquarian). The snare sounds good, though not really usable for punk and/or rock. Overall, this set is a great deal for the money.

Nice Set...

By ziljiman

I filled in on a gig for a friend nd these drums rock! All this set needs is some zildjian cymbals(my favorites are zildjian k's or z-customs), maybe some new heads (remo or aquarian). this is a pretty expensive set, but could really be a great set for any intermediate player

great drumset

By pdpdrummer000

from Dallas, TX

This set is amazing. I got the royal onyx from guitar center with a 16 inch floor tom. It's a beast. This set can be used for any type of drumming. If you're a beginner or a pro this set is sweet.
