I don't know if any of you have played on DW / PDP drums before, but I have to say that I will never use any other brand again! I have a PDP CX Series 6 piece kit that is just over a year old. I love the tone of the toms, the deepness of the bass drum and the crack of the snare! I'm sold for life on these drums! The kicker is that they are affordable, they sound just like the expensive DW drums and they have some great looks to boot!
