Default Show Off Your PDP Kits!!

I haven't seen a thread for this yet, but as a recent proud owner of a PDP kit I'd like to see others! I guess if you feel the need to, DW kits are welcome as well.

I'll start it off

Just got this PDP Concept Maple 7 Piece yesterday. It sounds amazing.

Is that the special blue version?? O_o

I recently started to see that color showing up but it's not on the PDP website! Is it a special edition of the Concept and are they only making a certain number with that color?

With that said POST UP MOAR PICS!!!1! lol!

Interesting. Do you know off hand how many sets are being made in that color or if there is any info you can link me to about this. Going to look into it myself as well.

Nice set man, too bad they don't offer more colors and better finishes for their sets. Their quality is top notch both for their shells and paint but the colors are so bland and there's not alot of choices.

Sorry, I just tried looking but I can't seem to find anything about the color specificity. I would imagine that they will keep making and giving that color to Guitar Center as long as people keep buying it. I know what you mean, the colors they give you on the website are incredibly boring. This finish is a nice change, though. Thanks!

Ok thanks anyway. Maybe one day I might consider trading in my white X7 maple for a blue to black Concept maple. Though yes it is sharp man and welcome to the club of satisfied PDP owners! The X7 maple and Conept maple are a bargain for what you get, craftsmanship and especially sound. Deep, wet and punchy with just enough sustain!

Enjoy!

Did you set up your bass drum backwards on purpose? Love the color of your kit though.

Curious about your pedals; is your slave pedal just not connected?

No, my slave pedal is connected, but at the time the picture was taken it was stretched at a very awkward angle. I've reset up the kit now to have it at a more comfortable spot

Wow I feel really stupid. I have been wondering why the kick is so far back and the toms are so close and I've had trouble keeping the kick still when I play. I've been playing the kick backwards. Thanks guys I would have never noticed without you.

No biggie at all man. I'm sure we've all been there at some point whether it's drums or something else in life. I take it you might be a beginner with all this?

Either way, enjoy the journey of learning how to set it up and especially play it.

Salute.

Glad we could help. Now go and enjoy that sweet looking kit!

That finish is very close to my PDP Platinums.

This is my FS Series with all Avedis Ziljdian cymbals.. It's not much, but it sounds pretty good. I hope to get a DW kit someday, but I have a wife to convince.

Love that color GospelDrummerGuy. I hear you about the wife thing.

This is mine. PDP M5 (maple). Scored it for $200 used without a snare.
Using a TAMA Artwood Birch 13" snare with it.
G2s over G1s.
Emad2 on the kick.
14" Newbeat hats, K Ride, 17" K Medium Dark Crash, 17" A Brilliant finish medium crash.

Sounds awesome for what I do (hobbyist hoping to gig when the kids get a little older).

My 2 up, 1 down setup before I changed out the old heads.

I have 2 PDP kits.

The first is a CXR in red sparkle wrap. Originally a 5pc with a 24" bass drum, 12" rack tom and 14/16" floor toms. I added the 10" rack tom.

The second is a recently purchased 7pc Concept Maple kit in Pearlescent White. 22" bass drum with 8/10/12/14/16 toms. I am considering adding the 24" bass drum and the 18" floor tom.

Both tuned very similarly right now. The red kit will probably get 2 ply heads and a deeper/lower tuning or maybe something "Bonhamesque" while the white kit will stay with 1 ply heads and get tuned up higher and as resonant as possible for a fusiony old school Lenny White sound

So, I'm new here. A little back story: I played drums in high school and thereafter, was in a band and all that. when I went to college and got married, there wasn't time or money for drum upkeep. Then about 5 years ago, my wife needed a new laptop, so I sold off my cymbals for that. My drums fell into disrepair. I haven't played seriously in about 6 or so years. However, last year I got my first teaching job (middle school Art) and now suddenly there's money and I can finally restore my drums. So I've recently been in the process of bringing my drums up to par. I've been getting cymbals on Ebay for super cheap. I'm in the process of wrapping the shells in a gold glitter glass wrap. The snare finish I made using black paint, gloss lacquer, and leftovers scraps from the 10" tom wrap.

About the kit: It's a PDP CX series I got when I was in high school. This was back when PDP was first coming out. It was originally crimson red lacquer but at some point I painted them blue. They have a great sound, basically like DW.
10" tom
12" tom (that I don't use)
14" floor tom (this was originally a mounted tom, but I always hated having it mounted, as I could never move it to where I needed it without moving the cymbal stand it was attached to. So I bought legs and made it a floor tom).
14" snare

Cymbals (all ued from ebay):
21" Sabian AA Dry Ride
16" Sabian AA Medium Thin Crash
12" Zildjian K Splash
13" Zildjian New Beat Hi Hats (not seen, but are shipping as we speak).
I'm debating whether or not to buy a 14" or 15" crash or to just leave the setup as is (I prefer a simpler setup).

I just need to finish the wraps, replace a few miscellaneous parts, one or two new stands, maybe a new snare head, and I'll be good to go. I'll post the finished pics when I'm done.

My PDP 805s and Tama Metalworks snare. 24, 13, 14, & 16. Thinking about adding a china or stack to it along with hooking up the ole double pedal.
