But I also respect that the open sound with full resonance is not up to everyones taste. I think they beat the crap out of the Yamaha Stage Customs, which are nice drums. Whenever we’ve encountered a bona fide DW kit, one of the first things that has struck us is how good the bass drum sounds. The influence of the additional wood extends to the drum’s sound as well and it’s closer to a boutique drum than a bundled snare in performance. Nice to hear that you agree. Described as being DW-style, they certainly bear a strong resemblance to those found on DW drums, differing mainly in the shape of the apertures for each lug. The time now is

The floor tom was the most dificult drum to tune, it took me a while actually to make it sound decent. I would recommend it to anyone. The tuning was a little complicated process and I needed to retune one more time after some hours playing the kit. The lugs, the tension rods and the tom mount give solid impression.
The presence of the DW-like Velcro-attachable pillow undoubtedly helps, prp does the integrity of the shells and every other component, but slapping the head on then tensioning out the creases finds the kick springing into life at the first touch.
I bought it with 2 broken rods about 8 months ago. The packaging was perfectly done, the boxes were compact and easy to load in a medium sized car trunk.

I would birhc guess that less metal on the shells allows more resonance. The lugs, the tension rods and the tom mount give solid impression.

That’s a beautiful finish! The shells and edges are perfect, it has 32 TPI rods and lugs, no construction issues, but mostly the tone is easily as good as my DW’s.

Here I must strongly disagree, especially with the type of comments calling them ‘terrible heads’ or ‘bad quality heads’. Apart from the necessary heads and hardware, the package included a nice bass drum muffling pillow and some extra tension rods. Clair Find all posts by Mike St. The lug provision is generally excellent with even the 10″ tom having 12 lugs and the cnocept 10 double-ended lugs ensuring maximum tuning accuracy.

People complain about the PDP lugs, but they are not cheap metal, I took lugs off to inspect them, they have some heft to them, and frankly I don’t understand what they’re complaining about. I just put my 14 x 5 birvh together from this kit. That’s why I also like the graduated counter hoops which are based on that idea. I had a CX kit that was a great kit, the only reason I got rid of it was the fast sizes and the lugs weren’t for me.
Although I used coated emperors before, I am not going to replace these heads until they wear out. The time now is Nice to hear that you agree. The toms have a great degree of attack and possess dark overtones, particularly when tuned lower.
The theory behind them is that unnecessarily heavy shell dressing will stifle smaller drums, so three thicknesses of hoops cover the kit.
I do look forward to that. Send a private message to sage On the outside two high-gloss lacquer finishes are available for the birch drums.

I just felt sorry for the heads geting such an unfair condemnation Their familiarity is down to the fact that they were first devised as a double-ended snare drum lug for DW’s Performance Series. After replacing cv5 batter with the coated emperor, the ring decreased. So to close up, in my opinion, the bass drum sounds superb – the pillow which comes with it provides just enough muffling and the sound is wet, punchy with nice warmth undrerneath, but the tone is controlled with the pillow keeping it focused.
The snare has coated ambassador on top and clear ambassador 3 mil on the bottom, all the toms have clear ambassadors on both top and conceot, the bass drum has a seriies powerstroke 4 if I am not wrong on the batter side and an ambassadar ebony as a resonant head.
The kiys head I decided to switch was the snare batter, which I replaced with a coated emperor, in order to slightly decrease the ring. Other than being sanded, the insides of the shells have been left untreated.
