One of the rehersal studio has a 6 piece DW kit with. First off, i couldn't believe they'd have a DW kit in one of the rehersal rooms! Second, the sound for the these drums were incredible. The heads were a little beat up, but still had that DW punchy sound.

I've seen a couple used DW kits @ my local music stores for 2K-4k and am looking to upgrade from my Yamaha kit. Just waiting to save a little more.

I've always been a DW fan, but damn if they aren't expensive.

great looking and sounding drums. although i would never drop that kind of cash on a kit. my ludwigs sound great on our records, they sound great live, sounded great on our live dvd and look good to. as of right now its my lowest line kit but the one i use 100% of the time because it sounds so killer.

they're not bad- we recorded our first album with a 6pc DW kit and it was pretty easy to work with.
We still have it, but have found other kits whose tones we prefer.
DW is very nice though.

They are brilliant drums. STRAIGHT OUT OF THE BOX. Perfect on the road and really cool in the studio. Course you need other drums around in the studio, guitarist have more than one guitar/amp. Every song is different, but they do deliver and are individually sounding(maybe cause there hand built). I've been recently getting into using my 20" dw kik with vintage gretsch toms, thats a great combo.
I also love my vintage luddies but I would'nt take em on the road to die, I depend on my Dubs and they are F@@king great. (excuse me language)
You can own the greatest drum ever made, but it won't change how well you can play it!

DW makes some FANTASTIC quality sounding drums. Pricey but worth the cost. I believe that they were bought out by PDP. Still the same quality and sound though. Enjoy them!
It's so important to make best friends in life!
