    Default PDP Drums Discussion

    I know we have DW but we don't have PDP. I know a few members own PDP's and they offer some nice configurations, finishes and layouts.

    So let's see what you have or had...

    Here's my CX series. This is actually the first new kit I'd purchased since the mid 90's.

    And this was one of the casualties of purchaing the DW's.

    What is the deal with hanging cymbals with the boom arm on top? I never got why people do that...

    I found that by inverting the boom, I was able to position my cymbals in a lower and flatter position. Kinda experimenting. I however still mount my ride in this fashion. -Les

    That's a fantastic clean setup. I love the cross on the bass drum.

    All the different manufacturer threads proves to me that there are great drums coming from all sides.

    Anyway, here are my PDP LXE's. I love 'em. It's hard to appreciate the finish without seeing it in person.

    Sweet PDPs guys! And Bish, I know what you mean about "casualties" for purchasing DWs! :D
    But in reality, when I sold mine they barely brought in enough cash to pay for the hardware I was going to need.
    Great drums though, loved the birch shells. This was my FS in black satin. And this kit was used and abused for about 5 years!

    I really loved the versatility of the 3up, 2down. It provided a multitude of different set up options. The Cross is why I play.

    Yes siree! pdp is NO exception to that rule! I personally prefer them OVER dw.
    Don't get me wrong here, d-dubs are very nice..I just think that pdps are a bit more user friendly.

    Thanks! It's actually a Legend free-floating snare (I know, I had never heard of them either, and now they are gone). I guess it's kind of a rarity, but it rocks!

    I'm not a PDP user (Pearl), but I am considering getting a PDP side snare for my hi hat stand instead of a Firecracker to save space.

    That Onyx was a nice finish wasn't it, Robert?
