Impressive, but with some concerns.

For me, this kit is quite impressive at its price point, considering that you also get the snare as well. Other kits around the price point ie Tama, Pearl, Yamaha don't include that so it is a great bonus. This sounds like a well made maple kit with all the DW love you can ask for. The toms are rich and resonant as expected from a DW kit. My only beef, hence the 4 star rating are the heads. The kick comes with a Remo USA (says so on the head) Powerstroke 3 on the batter and a Suede Ambassador on the resonant which are terrific with the two small DW pillows, however the rest of the kit comes with substandard heads. My resonant snare head pulled out of the hoop within a few weeks. Funny thing - I viewed all of the review videos online, including the Sweetwater one with Nick D'Virgilio and the batter heads have been swapped with either Evans or Remo. Nick appears to have chosen the clear Remo Ambassadors. The stock heads clearly aren't up to Remo USA standards, so expect to spend a little more on whatever heads you choose. My conclusion is that if you want a DW kit, you can't really go wrong with the Design Series. I would be lying if I said that this kit sounded any better or worse than the Performance Series, which I seriously considered, although it's a clear step up in quality and shell design from the PDP Concept series, which aren't too shabby themselves. I fully expect to play this kit for a long time.
