First off, I couldn't agree more with the previous comment review by Anthony Guerrero. He was so "spot on" in every aspect! I bought the kit from Guitar Center in Fairfax, Virginia in June, 2013 and it has become my "main kit"! Sure, I have DW Collector Series, Pearl Masters Customs, Yamaha Maple Absolutes, etc etc. However, I LOVE THIS KIT! And yes, I do have the Venice Series! But that 20" deep x 22" diameter bass drum KICKS and I do mean KICKS!!! The toms sound great right out of the box- tuned of course- no head change outs and the snare drum is "perfect" - don't tell the late great Buddy Rich, who never really liked any snare drums for long! lol. But the kit is truly amazing for those who really know their drums, and I do!!! And yes, the bass drums were my first and only concern, but I treat them with "kid gloves"- like gold, and there has been NO PROBLEMS! And I play at least 200 shows or more a year as a professional working drummer! Anyway, there have always been unrated kits that fly far below the marketing radar and the general public drummer awareness- and the OCDP- Venice kit is certainly one of those! I have the "Great Orange" wrap finish. Next, I'm going for the Neon Green! If you get the chance... buy this kit, oh and yeah, back to what Anthony said... don't pay for retail price- I didn't either!!! Stay Kewl & never stop drumming!!! RICK SIBBETT
This kit is great! I actually just got it brand new today for $450! PRESIDENTS DAY SALE! However, there are a few things that I'm a little uneasy about. The bass drum hoops seem like they're made of a really thin wood. I could actually bend it and break it, if I wanted to. I would recommend getting a little strip of rubber and lining it at the bottom of the hoop where your pedal goes because, again, the hoops are super thin. The snare is great and so are all the toms. The suspension system comes with the toms and they work great and they're really solid! Honestly, this kit is mid-range and it kicks out professional tones still. However, I wouldn't buy it outright unless it's marked down less than the normal $699 mark.
