  • Summary: My main gigging kit. Kick drum is unbelievable. Stock front logo head with Remo Powerstroke 3 clear on batter with DW pillow. Kit sounds and looks better than kits twice the price. Would like heavier hoops on toms and snare but can't have everything at this price point.
  • Pros: Customer service, Finish, Mic Up Great, Shallow Toms, Tone

Awesome Kit

  • Summary: I actually started playing drums on a 90s yamaha stage custom and figured i would get a new updated version. Great drums, they have a lot of attack from the toms (especially the 10") and a lot of punch from the kick. The Snare is pretty decent as well.
  • Pros: Great Attack, Hardware Rock Solid, Looks great on stage, Shallow Sizes, Sound Great Mic'd
  • Cons: Gets Out Of Tune Quickly, No Memory Locks On Ft, Stock Heads Are No Good

  • Summary: I got this kit while returning a DW PCP Maple Concept. As I brought the PCP kit into the studio, it did not sound the way I expected, and finishing quality was sub-par. I had seen this kit a few days before, so I went back for the exchange. My kit is the 10/12/16/22, Black.
  • Pros: Everything
  • Cons: nothing really
