A brand new Concept in drums is here. The Concept Series has a fresh new look and sound...all without breaking the bank!

Concept Series is a new line of PDP drums that offers premium features at an affordable price. All shells are 7-ply Maple, except for the snare which is 10-ply. Through research with the DW Custom Shop, they have found some particular detail features that have a big effect on sound and quality. DW believes every drummer deserves these features, so they have included DW-style STM mounting systems, True Pitch™ tuning, F.A.S.T. tom sizing, proportional counter hoop sizing, and Remo drum heads.

Snare drums include boutique-style copper wires and the DW MAG throw-off. Bass drums come with die-cast claw hooks, and all drums feature the new retro-inspired dual-turret tube lug.

Concept Maple drums are available in six specialty high-gloss finishes, all with chrome hardware, except for pearlescent black (black hardware). Hardware and cymbals not included.

Things You Will Get:

    16x20" Bass Drum w/ Mount
    9x12" Tom
    12x14" Floor Tom
    5.5x14" Snare Drum

Comments about Pacific by DW PDP Concept Series 4 Piece Shell Set:

The PDP Concept Maple I bought from Sam Ash is the 4 piece (pearlescent white) with a 20" bass, 12" tom , 14" floor tom, and 14 x 5.5 snare. I spent about 6 months reading reviews, listening, and playing (when possible) all the different bebop size kits in the $650 price range. However, I did not get a chance to play the PDP...but thought this kit might be the best based on reviews and my own personal preferences. To be was way more than I expected. Out of the box I inspected all bearing edges....hoops...etc and found them nearly flawless. After tuning and set-up...I found that I had the sound I wanted. I kept the stock resonant heads (which seem fine to me) and replaced all batter heads with Coated Ambassadors have the perfect traditional jazz sound that I need. The only flaw was that the suspension bracket around the 12" tom was warped enough to put pressure on the tuning rods. Sam Ash sent me another and it fits perfectly. Very very impressive set of drums!!! With the right heads and tuning you can achieve any sound you want!!
