General Your general opinion of this product. Added Evans black hydraulic heads a quick tune and couldn't believe my ears. A powerful kit for a great price. What more could you ask for... Quality Would you consider this product to be made well? How dependable? for the price i think they are. I don't know how dependable they are, i have only had them for 4 days now but so far so good.... Features What do you consider to be the best features of this product? What features would you add to this product if you could? The overall look & sound of the kit. Heavier rims on toms. Sound How is the tone? Great with EVANS BLACK HYDRAULIC heads. Didn't try with the heads that came with the kit. Don't care much for Remo. Appearance Appearance Very nice!!! Value Was this item an overall good value? I'm very satisfied...
Totally awesome kit

General Your general opinion of this product. I'm very happy with my PDP Concept Maple 7pc drums. I did alot of research on different kits before deciding on these and for all the reasons listed below and the low price point these drums are hard to beat(pun intended :) Quality Would you consider this product to be made well? How dependable? I've owned PDP drums in the past and had no issues so I'm sure that these will hold up just fine. I probably wouldn't recommend standing on the bass drum, but I wouldn't do that on any brand of drums :) Features What do you consider to be the best features of this product? What features would you add to this product if you could? I don't like to mount my toms to the bass drum, so I like the fact that you can mount these toms on a 10.5mm or 12.7mm tom stand. I happen to have a DW 12.7mm double tom stand which works great. Sound How is the tone? These things sounded good right out of the box even with the stock heads, but really sounded great after changing to Evans G2 clears. I really couldn't hear much differance between these and my DW Performance series drums. Appearance Appearance The silver to black fade looks way better than I expected with a ton of sparkles throughout on each drum. Fantastic looking drums! Value Was this item an overall good value? Probably the best value going right now for such great sounding and looking drums, and the 8 month pay plan makes it even better.
Very pleased

General Your general opinion of this product. Overall I am extremely pleased with this kit and the quick shipping service provided by AMS. After weeks of extensive budget-conscious research, YouTubing and customer review reading for a maple shell kit, this seemed like the best choice by a long shot. I did tune up and slam the Remo PDP heads that came with the kit (just for kicks), which sounded OK overall and may be sufficient for the less discerned drummer/ear. After putting coated Remo Emperors for batters and Ambassadors for resonants, these shells produced that beautiful, deep and warm tone I was looking for. Quality Would you consider this product to be made well? How dependable? You won't find higher quality maple shells and hardware within this price bracket. Features What do you consider to be the best features of this product? What features would you add to this product if you could? The suspension mounts are excellent and the lacquer finish is beautiful. Although the DW MAG throw-off and copper snare wires were a nice touch, it still didn't change the fact that this snare is less than desirable. I would upgrade the snare drum which is by far the weakest link in this shell kit and the reason for the 4 star quality rating. Sound How is the tone? Beautiful, deep and warm with coated Remo Emperor batters and coated Remo Ambassador resonants. Appearance Appearance I struggled between the Pearlescent White and Transparent Walnut when choosing the finish. Since I already own a white Pearl kit, I opted for the Transparent Walnut. I am so happy I did - the walnut finish is absolutely beautiful and the wood grain is absolutely transparent. Value Was this item an overall good value? Overall this was an excellent value and I highly recommend it - you won't be disappointed!
Great value and sound

Quality Would you consider this product to be made well? How dependable? Average to slightly below average quality. Dependability should be OK. Features What do you consider to be the best features of this product? What features would you add to this product if you could? Good features. The 10-lug snare sounds great. I like the graduated thickness hoops but they need to be better made. Sound How is the tone? Sounds excellent (didn't even try the original heads though). General Your general opinion of this product. The hoops are still the poorly manufactured PDPs. Ugly welded joints, some ground down too far before plating and some show the rough grinder marks through the plating. The paint has multiple spots on each drum of trash under the finish making a "pimple" under the finish. The lugs and hardware other than hoops is very good. The color and it's overall appearance is pretty ugly. Not sure I won't return these due to manufacturing defects after receiving them this afternoon. Value Was this item an overall good value? Questionable ... probably not worth the price. Appearance Appearance The "transparent" cherry is like dark burgundy paint.. 98% opaque. Can see the grain of what is probably cheap Asian maple barely with great difficulty.
