Possibly PDP Platinum, because they're basically what DW was eight years ago. Or even Medicine Man Custom Drums. But you can also get nice kit from almost all of the manufacturers for that price range. What do you want out of your kit?


I'm sorry, i dont understand the question (not a native speaker, so it's get a bit difficult at times)

Oh ok.
Well to begin with i was thinking about a 6 or 7 piece set, one bass drum.
8'' 10'' 12'' 14'' 16'' toms.
22'' bass drum.

Colour is the least of my concerns, but ill check out anything from Sunburst, to dull black finish.

And if by hardware u mean hoops, Die Cast hoops.

budget is around 3k.

I play metal, and Rock.

That's about it?

what cymbals do you have? if you are prepared to lay down that much money on a kit i would make sure you had kick arse cymbals. would you want a snare to come in the same colour as the kit? if you dont care i would get a custom snare. Before you ask what kit you should make sure a new kit is actually your priority then work from there.
Zildjian, Wuhan & Istanbul cymbals
Pearl & Mirage kit.
Crappiato Snare
Steve's Back! ..............kinda

What do you mean by saying the Platinum series is like an old DW? Is that because it's keller shell, or the bearing edge??
You can own the greatest drum ever made, but it won't change how well you can play it!

also, one thing: unless you've actually played around with die-cast hoops on toms, you might want to check out a drumset with die-cast hoops before buying.

I say either of the sets those dudes said or mapex saturn. im not sure if they have satin finishes but there are a ton of fade finishes. or tama superstar hyperdrive or starclassic if you find some cheaper ones
