I had a lot of expectations upgrading from the maple PDP LX kit that I've played for the last 5 years and few were met. The drums and hardware are of sturdier make than the PDP kit but as far as tuning goes I ended up with more or less the same sound that I had with the other kit despite trying out 3 different combinations of resonant and batter heads. The snare has an annoying overtone that was very difficult to get rid of. My expectation was that DW drums would sound better but I ended up with something that certainly looks cooler but doesn't sound any better than what I had and my old kit cost half of what I paid for these.
I've owned this kit for a week and it's pretty awesome. I've avoided DW for years because I wasn't a fan of the large Camco lugs. The 3/4 turret lugs are definitely cooler looking and less metal against the shell is better for tone and sustain. The drums weren't too difficult to tune, however if you're a heavy snare hitter, it might go out of tune a bit. I was a bit skeptic about the hoops as they aren't the true tune hoops that are optional on the collector's series kits. The standard flanged hoops are strong and durable. The 24" kick is pretty nuts. I haven't changed the tuning and the low end is thunderous. I'll probably experiment with the tuning more but I'm really pleased with the sounds I'm getting now. Overall, I recommend this kit to anyone who gigs or records. It's a great value and definitely a quality product.
