    Comments about PDP Concept Maple by DW 7-Piece Shell Pack:

    I am commenting after having these drums for a few months now.
    I play out about 2X a month & the way that the band sounds as a whole with this kit is incredible. The beauty of the drum set & the pure enjoyment of playing it (upgrading from a 5 piece to a 7 piece) is what I expected from a DW made product. Watch the DW video's on tuning your drum set it does help. So for the money & quality of this kit I definitely recommend the PDP concept maple drums, they a made to satisfy.

      Comments about PDP Concept Maple by DW 7-Piece Shell Pack:

      I am really impressed with the quality of this kit & the sound. I suspended the 14" floor tom off a cymbal stand so that the drum set was a little tighter, this was so I didn't have to turn so much to get to the 16" floor tom. I have only owned the kit for 1week now so a review wold be premature. But as to date, WOW this is going to be a lot of fun to play & I can't wait to start gigging with it.

      Amazing 7 Piece Drums

      By Fred

      from New Orleans, La

      Comments about PDP Concept Maple by DW 7-Piece Shell Pack:

      I'd HIGHLY recommend this kit to anyone looking to upgrade to a quality set of drums. These drums have deep, rich, full tones that are the product of all maple shells. The drums are well built with typical weight to the PDP hardware that shows the DW influence. As soon as you pick up the claws to attach the bass drum rods to the lugs, you realize these are not cheaply made drums. Even while unpacking the 8" tom, you realize these are some seriously well made SOLID drums. I immediately replaced the stock batter head on the bass drum with an Aquarian Super Kick II head, because I like the THUMP if provides but there was nothing wrong with the stock head if you want a little ring in your bass drum. I also have to disagree with several of the other reviewers that said you need to replace the tom heads. I spent a half hour with a drum key and a little patience and had them all sounding great with the stock heads. I may eventually replace them with all black heads, just for appearance. I really love the snare. It tunes up really nice and has a lot of snap and pop to it. The only thing I did to the snare (other than tuning) was put nylon washer on it and adjusted the snare straps to allow it to get some additional tension. But the brass snares sound really good. There are only a few VERY MINOR critical things I could say about the product: 1) It didn't come with instructions. Although I know how to put drums together, it would have been nice to see what PDP (DW) says about tightening the rods and tuning the drum. 2) It only came with one drum key. Other sets I've purchased always came with multiple keys, (They know you're gonna "misplace" one or two) 3) Old literature on the PDP X7 says it was supposed to come with drumsticks, and mine didn't. Don't know if that changed or if my box with the instructs and the sticks was missing. But overall, I'm completely satisfied with my purchase and love the look and sound the new drums so much better than the Mapex Pro M set they replaced.

      For the money, you get great quality and sound.

      Comments about PDP Concept Maple by DW 7-Piece Shell Pack:

      I bought this drumset on 3/9/14 and have to say I am not disappointed. I played drums for 13 years back in the day, and then switched to guitar. This set was a perfect choice to get me back into drumming. Obviously changing the heads to Evans double ply was the first thing I did. The set sounded good with stock heads, but with the Evans heads it's amazing. And once I started with the heads, I soon added another kick drum, a gibraltar rack system(half of it so far), Pearl eliminator double pedal(broken down to two single pedals).Also added a backup Gretsch snare. And of course cymbals Zildjan Z cymbals kinda cheap, but I did add a Meinl crash and A Zildjan china splash/trash. The sound is amazing,I love it. Also I wrote to DW Drums about my purchase, and they sent me a DW hat,DW t-shirt,and a buttload of stickers.So am I happy with this purchase, YES, the drums are awesome the kick drums sound deep, the toms are great the whole drum set rocks. One thing I did notice, because I am a heavy player, some lugs back out, so maybe lug locks would be a wise investment. Otherwise, it's great.

      Amazing sound , hardware , price. "DW Lite"

      By rob

      from Pittstown ,NJ

      Comments about PDP Concept Maple by DW 7-Piece Shell Pack:

      I gave up drumming and my Pearl Masters 20 years ago.. Had the opportunity to sit in with the Adam Ezra Group ( top band on the East Coast ) for a cover of Free Falling ....I was hooked again and knew that E drums just don't do it. Alex , the drummer for AEG suggested I look at PDP which he called " DW Lite". This kit is incredible , maple , 7 piece , great hardware and beautiful. I tried EVERY other major brand in the price range of $1000 to 3000 Nothing comes close. Upgraded heads after the first two months and learned how to eliminate the snare ring with proper placement of moon gels...hobby or pro , you should check these out. Also, got great price and service at the Sommerville NJ store....FYI

      Great ,even better with upgrades .

      By Jamie

      from Plano , Texas

      Comments about PDP Concept Maple by DW 7-Piece Shell Pack:

      This is a great kit at a great price ... God solid stuff for middle of the line budgets . One thing that is always a must is to upgrade the heads . The kit sounds great out of the box but one thing that caught my attention is the tension bolt washers are very cheap and thin . I would recomend changing these to some thick nylon washers as it will keep the drums in tune . Other than thta ,I am pleasantly pleased with the kit as it is my stay in the studio practice kit .. Good deal

      It's all about the Kick Drum with this kit

      By Caius Gall

      from Phoenix, Arizona

      Comments about PDP Concept Maple by DW 7-Piece Shell Pack:

      The kit is a very good kit. But what sold me was the way the bass drum sounded. The rack toms are ok, but you can upgrade by changing the heads. I put REMO Emperor Heads on the kit. I went from a Gretsch Catalina 6 piece maple kit to this 7 piece maple kit and I do feel it's a upgrade in sound. It's a great intermidiate kit with a amazing bass drum sound. Need to tweak the snare drum a little bit to make it sound good. I put some internal dampers on the snare and it sounds good. But keep in mind kits that come with snares are not going to give you the best sounding snares, you eventually have to upgrade to a snare of your musical taste. Musical taste is heavy metal.

      BEST DRUMSET EVER!

      By Jordan Fisher

      from CA

      Comments about PDP Concept Maple by DW 7-Piece Shell Pack:

      This thing rocks! It sounds so good! The maple shells are made very well and the tone you get out of them are comparable to thousand dollar kits. The snare was a big surprise because i was thinking i would have to upgrade it with another one but the stock one is so much better then an other snare i have owned. The bass drum is also amazing. The toms are very good too. The whole drumset is amazing. I wouldnt buy any other kit, besides a real DW in the future. Buy some new heads and a good hardware kit and your good to go. I bang these drums everyday, so hard. And they take it, very well. Buy them, they'll change your life.
