Great Drums at a Great PriceI have been playing for about 40 years and in that time I have played many brands of drums, Always wanted a DW Kit after playing one a few years ago,,So when this Kit came out at a reasonable price I had to do it! and was I glad ....these drums are unbelievable, every other kit I have bought I always changed the heads straight away , not these the sound is great even with the heads they come with! The white Ice color is cool.plus looks great under the lights. I have always played a metal snare..but this snare has a sound that makes you want to play and play, cuts through the whole band and they even remarked (What a Snare sound) I first bought the 22" Bass Drum and the 3 Toms along with the 6.5 X 14 Snare and now I just ordered the 14" floor tom and the 7X8 tom to complete this Great kit!! If you can buy these drums...... do it!! you won't be sorry.

Great start to a kitFrom the moment I pulled these out of the boxes i loved them. They look amazing, and sound just as good.
I'm a wood grain type of guy, so i love the transparent stain finish, and the hi gloss overcoat just adds to it.
Comes with a nice DVD, tells you all about the drums, and gives tuning instructions, so even if you don't know how to tune a kit you'll be good to go.
I have to specifically mention the snare throw off, it's magnetic and really easy to operate. But the greatest part about it is when you throw it off, it's way off, so when you want to play without the wires, you get a nice clean sound without any buzz, no matter how tight you keep the wires when they're on. It's pretty much the best throw off i've ever used.
Last thing i have to say is I'm a big fan of this sort of piece together your own kit style of selling these drums. For one if you're on a tight budget, it lets you buy a kit over time(i bought the pack first, and then the kick a couple months later.) Second, it lets you choose the exact drum sizes you really want.
I have the matching 22x18 kick and it makes a great set. I'm considering adding a 14" floor tom sometime later.
This is the main set in my studio, and it's a great fit.
