what do you guyz think is the best. both are very expensive drums and good hardware. and not to mention that pretty hard to get your hands on those kits.

Dw drums are way better because they have good sound to them and the wood is exotic or
whatever you chose. OCDP is a good but i think your really think you are paying for
the name insted of the drums but they do offer diffrent types of hardware but out of
the two i would buy the DW set.

OCDP has way more options...point taken... and they sound great...don't get me wrong...but they're way too expensive... The price to overall package quality ratio is not a good one... DW is expensive as well, but a much better ratio... Sound wise, I still pull DW across the line..
PLay Hard, bro

TimeKeep69 (Medicine Man Custom Drums) uses all the same materials that OCDP uses and charges considerably less. If you're considering a custom kit, check them out.

Personally, I like DW for what they are, which includes their unique tone.

Dubs are great drums. Some of the best ever made anytime. OCDP, is a lot of bogus over rated hype. They build nice looking drums, and will make you a clown set if you want them. But theres a lot of hype in what they do and what they offer. If I was buying a new top end kit, the choice would not be OCDP.

i personally like dw but orange county sets can get crazy as far as custom orders. the main reason i like dw is because the company that does all of dws custom wood finishes and exotic wood imports is vanhout. its a company in indiana usa and the owner is one of my friends. lol so natually i'm a promoter of dw. if you like premade sets that are of great quallity choose dw. if you want to control every aspect of your set without spending 20,000 dollars go with orange county.

I like DW better. They have the rep and the time in. As with others I would suggest looking around to all your options if your looking.

dw's definetly sound better than OCDP, and theyre hardware is much much better, OCDP makes their drums look better than they actually sound! for one thing i dont get those massive holes in the snare, i honestly dont seem any point of them being there, but if you have the money go dw, unless you like the sound OCDP so its totaly up to you
 
as said by many others, when you buy ocdp, you're paying an absolutely ridiculous amount of money for a brand name. they use the same shells and pretty much the same hardware as any other drum builder... including myself. some of their finishes are truly amazing, but is it worth that kind of money? hell no.

DW by far. OCDP customer service and overall quality blows. In the 5 years I've dealt with DW (my set, snares and interaction with the guys over there), I have nothing but GREAT things to say about them and their product. They respond to any questions at a quick rate and are incredibly nice people. Not to mention the only problem I've had is a throwoff that broke (old design, 2 screw instead of 4 screw), and that was replaced and all was fine again. The next kit I get from DW will be custom and cost about $4500 for a 20x24 bass, 6x12 short tom, 11x14 fast tom, and 8x15 short tom. For the unique design I have in mind and the quality of the sound and structural integrity, it is a great deal.

It's only overpriced if it's not what you want.
Its just my opinion. I think they both charge too much for what they are. But for someone else it could be everything they have ever dreamed of in a drum set and worth every penny and more. I would steer clear of both companies personally. But that doesn't mean anyone else should unless they share my opinion.

Just food for thought....check out Bronwyn Custom Drums. They're made in Struthers, OH and they are excellent drums. You'd have to look elsewhere for hardware, but the drums are excellent.
