Kevin Stailey's review"So Much Love, I have Two"

PDP Pacific Drums and Percussion Concept Maple
I was first "Introduced" to the 7 Piece CM from PDP about 7 years ago. I bought a Cherry Fade to Black Sparkle. First of all, the Finish is down right Amazing - The ONLY thing, okay, there's many, that tops the look is how Amazing they sound. DW has taken the time and effort to build a ton of quality in these - Lot's of High End touches. I thought it was just going to be a halfway decent Gigging Kit, but I was mistaken - I would stack these against ANY Kit selling at or under $4000.00 easy. I play hard, but with a good deal of Finesse and the tones of heavy hitting, or those subtle touches all deliver - A FINE BUY, and at under $1000.00 - It was a No Brainer - Recently I was in my Mom & Pop - I saw the White Kit I am now using for touring in our Band MRBLITX - It was on Sale for $750.00 - It flew off the upper shelf and into my Studio.

This product is available in 3 versions, each with a snare 14x5.5:
GC 20 - 10/12/14 Toms ("CM5 Fusion")
GC 22 - 10/12/16 Toms ("CM5 Stage")
GC 22 - Toms 10/12/14/16 ("CM6 Studio")
GC 22 - Toms 8/10/12/14/16 ("CM7 Studio"), which I will describe.

First, let me say that the machine has been fully given to Tune-Bot. This is a tuner that is 10% of the price of the drumkit. Drummers do not have all the musical ear (and I include myself in), I highly recommend this purchase, especially for a big config.

Bought € 949. A 7 maple drums at this price drumkit, of course, there is no competition.
There is a hardware pack optional 339 € I did not take.

Sound first. The heat is here! Even before tuning the toms and bass drum are bluffing. Not too snare, which requires a little more attention.
Used for deep drums, it may take time to adapt to her a little more shut. At the same time, with 5 toms, any additional precision is welcome.

The snare is quite convincing, if only one cheek tight. If you want a fat sound, it's not the top.
Anyway, given the config of the machine, you will definitely play a rock not very nice top. So the sound to "another world" Phone is not your department ;)
And then a 5.5 ", this is for slam.

Small disappointment of the bass drum. In terms of volume only. I expected more hairy. This can be skin Aquarian Superkick I mounted just above. Well, this is not a problem, on the contrary, your neighbors will appreciate, like the sound engineer who will not see the gates open toms each kick.

About skins, even if origins are siglées Remo and the drumkit already sounds good with, you will totally transform it into something much more serious. I opted for the Aquarian Studio-X for toms and Evans Genera Dry on the snare. These two models are designed to calm the harmonics. Associated with a very tight tuning skins resonance, I can do without bits of tape or Kleenex stuck to the skin (it's really not nice ...).
Finally on this topic, shame about the resonant head on the bass drum is not perforated. Well, the good thing is that you can drill where you want.

A good place to tie tom equipped with a boom arm clamp. It's been a clamp least provide the rack already cluttered with all those toms!
In this regard, there is everything you need in the kit to install the drumkit, the rack is not necessary. But hey, who says lots of words was often too many cymbals, the rack, it is a sacred comfort!

Quality workmanship, it is still early to judge. Strength seems to go. I just had a problem with a shell on the tom 14 ". The tie was very difficult to tighten. Ca is more or less settled in the lubricant.
Everything else (foot bass drum, tom-base fastening, clamping feet tom 14 and 16 trigger stamp CC, etc), it's super good! Everything fits perfectly.

Purchased finish "pearlescent white", I find the effect a little too quiet. You really get closer to see the glitter. By far, the drumkit is white point.
So really no effect unlike gradient colors.
Version "pearlescent black" is out of stock almost permanent. If you want a little originality, choose it in another color ;) Note that the black version is the only one with black anodized circles. This is perhaps what makes it successful. From what I've seen in other brands, this surface treatment is not very resistant to the blows of sticks.

To conclude, despite the 2 or 3 points raised, which foot to play on such a huge config, with no less huge sound for a price so affordable!

my settings to Tune-Bot (in hertz)
GC: hits = 58 - = 87 Reso
CC: hits = 174 - 402 = Reso
Tom 8 hits = 296 - Reso = donf (Tune-Bot can not measure)
Tom 10 hits = 235 - Reso = donf (Tune-Bot can not measure)
Tom 12 hits = 187 - 429 = Reso
Tom 14 hits = 148 - 341 = Reso
Tom 16 hits = 118 - 270 = Reso.

I just bought this new model PDP which is aesthetically very successful. I painted the white model. 9a is 6 years since I shot with a pro kit Basix custom birch, the only high-end model of the defunct brand. After a long montage (approximately 2:30), I made the correct turn of the beast. The woods are perfect and the new deck fittings, including the magnificent new double DW shells are the most beautiful effect. The hardware is heavy and gives an impression of absolute strength. The new system for the snare directly inherited the great sister DW is absolutely brilliant. Overall I would say aesthetically we know right now what we're dealing with and that the impression of finesse and strength is there. I will level its all details:

Bass drum: I mounted directly aquarian super kick 2 my, powerful, punchy and dry times, the GC is a cannonball!

Snare: You should turn the original skin is of me ***. I set up an Evans HD dry. The sound is punchy, precise and very wide tuning range, in that rim shot :) severe beam, the rebound is nice.

Tom 10: not used

12 Tom: So I have it taped, I rode with Remo come with the drumkit, it delivers a strong, clean typical of maple! I adore!

Tom 14: Same comment as above, even granted no matter how it sounds, it's fluff!

Tom 16: So he him the boot in May to kick too much rise in vibration. It must gaffer. I changed the skin to an Evans G2, it is round and powerful, it would almost say the birch!

Overall the kit is very balanced, we quickly find the origin and the ITS DW is undeniable.

In the least I would say:

- Hides origins not top
- Worse bah nothing else it surpasses all the kits I tested at the same price (Tama, Mapex, sound)

I would do a SHIFT in two or three months.

But hot and trying to be objective, we lay there a DW killeuse. Perfect for every style!
