    Default New drum kit day!

    Ordered myself a five piece DW today. It will be here on Monday.

    I know someone will ask, so I’ll answer now. The deal on the “custom” kit went bad, I got my money back, and ordered the DW.

    Yes it is. I watched numerous videos to include some “side by side by side” comparison videos for the Design, Performer, and Collectors. I can’t afford Collectors so that was out of the equation from the beginning. The videos I watched showed such minute differences between the Design and Performer series in regards to sound/tone, etc that I decided to save a few bucks and just roll with the design series.

    At the end of the day it is a DW, it is maple, and I’m excited to get them!

    I had a friend give me a black kick drum head and I threw it on tonight. I like the black better than the white for sure.
