    I play a PDP LX with all 5000 and 9000 DW hardware so I am close, I want a collectors kit in spider pine veneer over maple. As soon as I can justify to my wife why I need such a kit I'll buy one but right now it is not in the cards.

    i play a dw jazz fusion kit, tom sizes 10, 12, 14, sometimes 16" when i have room. i love the kit, and want another one that produces a little bit deeper tones, all the dw 9000 hardware and some 5000 hardware has never failed on me... very very nice drums in my opinion.

    I found when I first got my DW's that they didn't seem to have the "low end" drums should have...based on my previous experiences.

    I could even tend to agree with someone who's just recently purchased a dw kit for the first time, that they may not like it.

    I'm not sure I liked mine the very first time I set it up and played it. It seemed tamed and laid back.

    Boy was I wrong. After a couple weeks of getting used to the way it responds to sticking and such, it took a while to realize how WOW they really sounded. And it wasn't until they were mic'd that I really started growing into the sound coming from them.

    Now I know it's the kit I'll be using as often as possible to play.

    And because it is a wrap and not a lacquer finish, I don't have to be too concerned about the finish getting damaged.

    As far as the hardware, I purchased it a year ago to gig with the Gretsches so I already have road ready hardware. So I really am not worried about anything getting damaged and yet, I'll still have a top notch kit available for gigging.

    Nice Thread!!!

    I've been playing a DW Collectors Maple for a year now.
    10&6 snare/ 12 x 9/ 14 x 11 and 22 x 18.
    Small kit I know...but sounds big.
    I just recently ordered a 10" and 16" to complete the kit.

    It's the best kit/ best sounding kit I've ever played!!!!!
    add the 9000 and 5000 hardware....killer !!!!

    As Bish said....when mic'd, the really sing!!!

    Sound guys love them!!!

    I've played pearl (studio Birch/ export) Yamaha (tour custom/ stage custom), Sonor, etc. and have found these to sound the best to me!!!

    I will say, that DW is a preferred sound....not for everyone...
    to each they're own!!

    Cheers

    Like Ploughman, I don't own any of their drums, but their hardware is top notch! Even the lower end lighter duty stuff like the 7000 series is amazing!

    I agree that is one of the prettiest finishes ever!!!
    If I could have any set I think I would get a Collector's Series with that same Kurillian Birch fade, but with satin finish hardware. I would get the same fusion sizes I have: 10", 12", 14".

    As it is, I have the "poor man's version" of that kit - the PDP LXE with Kurillian in a charcoal fade. I love my kit!

    When I heard the thunder coming from them while playing them at the music store I knew I had to have a kit at home. There was no dissappointment other than the bass drum wasn't tuned properly and needed a better head. Now I got it the entire kit dialed in. Just need a new snare now.

    i would love to have an edge snare. DW collectors seems to be the perfect if not a little generic sounding maple kit if that makes any sense. i dont mean that in a bad way, just that they have the kind of warm, rounded sound that is the standard by wich all other maple kits are measured. i cant say i'm in a hurry to buy another kit like that as that is also how i feel about my pearls. my next kit will have a little different character. as evryone else has said, the pedals are awesome. one of my next buys is 9000 hat stand.
