They also use a different grade of maple.oamgreg":1mvexcw1 said:The snares not soo great, but I feel everything else is up to DW standards. I been playing a PDP set ofr the better part of 2 years and I love, I use a pork pie snare, I like a little more pop, and that is the only thing that PDP's snare is in capable of. Howerver, change both batter and reson heads to Remo, and it'll sound a lot better. The stock heads are lame, lose tune and tone very easily, I stand by Remo heads, change 'em and you've got yourself a great kit. The reason they are cheaper, is because of the labor, they are put together in Mexico, so that is why such a huge difference in price from DW, but they are in fact made by the same co. DW does own, and design PDP. Viva la cheap labor
The hardware on the drums? What's wrong with it? I've been using it for three years.downshifter99":1mvexcw1 said:Their shells are good but,their hardware is very bad.
Everyone that sells them are like "DW Pacific Drum Set" or just "DW Drums for sale"...I find it funny how people think just cause it says DW that it's good or charge way too much for it.
Now,I think that if you got one of the high-end PDP and put some other manufacturers hardware on them then I think you'd really have a durable,great sounding drum-set that is now custom because you changed the hardware.
Maybe clean-up the bearing edges on the bass drum for better boom.
Anyhow,cheers/good luck. :twisted:
