PDP's Concept Maple drum kit pushes the envelope of what a budget-minded drummer like you can expect from an affordable acoustic kit. This 7-piece all-maple-shell drum kit gives you the rich and warm sound you're looking for, plus exceptional tonal variety. Thanks to several breakthroughs made by the DW Custom Shop, this PDP Concept Maple drum kit gives you advanced features such as 7- and 10-ply shells, Suspension Tom Mounting, True Pitch tuning, and F.A.S.T. tom sizing - all for an amazing low price! Step up your rig with a PDP Concept Maple drum kit from Sweetwater.

PDP Concept Maple 7-piece Drum Kit at a Glance:
  • The warm sound and epic sustain that only maple shells can deliver
  • 7-ply tom/kick shells and a 10-ply snare shell ensures maximum resonance and projection
  • F.A.S.T. sized kit provides you with an even spread of tones and a wide tonal range
The warm sound and epic sustain that only maple shells can deliver

Maple shells are known far and wide for their warmth and richly resonant tone. This PDP Concept Maple drum kit fully embraces this natural quality of maple. When you play a PDP Concept Maple kit, you can expect the characteristically long and slow sustain only all-maple shells can provide.

7-ply tom/kick shells and a 10-ply snare shell ensures maximum resonance and projection

You want serious projection? You got it! The PDP Concept Maple kit 7-ply tom and kick shells and the 10-ply snare shell are leaps and bounds beyond what you'd normally expect from such an affordable drum kit. The extra density these layered shells give you makes them extremely robust and responsive. Add to that a DW style STM (Suspension Tom Mount) system, and you know your Concept Maple drum kit will deliver tone any serious drummer will love.

F.A.S.T. sized kit provides you with an even spread of tones and a wide tonal range

When it comes to tonal diversity, you just can't knock the PDP Concept Maple's F.A.S.T. sized toms. These slightly shallower toms give you powerful attack and rapid decay, accentuating their individual tones. If you prefer the more melodic sound of modern tom tunings, then you'll love the Concept Maple's tom sound. Add to that PDP's True Pitch tension rods, and you've got a huge range of tone to choose from.

PDP Concept Maple 7-piece Drum Kit Features:
  • An amazingly full and warm-sounding all-maple drum kit for a great low price
  • All-maple shells give you warm sound with naturally long and slow sustain ratios
  • 7-ply tom/kick shells and a 10-ply snare shell deliver epic resonance and projection
  • DW style STM (Suspension Tom Mount System) lets your rack toms vibrate freely for added openness
  • True Pitch tension rods give you a wide range of tuning options
  • F.A.S.T. sized toms give you even tone, melodic depth, and excellent attack
  • Premium lacquer finish looks amazing and withstands the rigors of frequent gigging
  • Advanced hardware includes dual-turret tube lugs, graduated counter hoops, die-cast bass drum claw hooks, a MAG throw-off, and more
  • Premium Remo heads give you incredible sound right out of the box

More than happy

I bought this kit my budget was 3000 k so I was talked into these even though I'm a tama guy and I have to say I was way under budget that extre money I got new head g2 coated over g1 clear and my bass drum pillow out with Gmad heavyduty with a remo coated ambassador reso head now I always like low tuning but this kit just sounds better high my tuning keeps getting higher not sure if it the maple or my preference is changing also extra money I bough to. Of books a music stand and the dw practice kit and I'm still six hundred under so I'm looking at getting a new snare drum and some more cymbals I bought the custom A zildjian pack which I love at first I didn't like they grew on me so much these cymbals almost the same price as these drums roc and sock throne all hardware dw 3000 double pedal with the two legging hit hat stand if I decide to just save this six hundred to my second shell kit I'm more than happy with these drums depending how serious I get these will be the kit I drag to shows or practice space

PDP Concept Series - PDP's Best Series Ever

First time I saw the PDP Concept series 7 piece, the first thing that came to mind was "This is gonna be a really expensive kit" but when I actually saw the price, I was blown away. A lot of people I know say that PDP drums are "cheap" and that you're better off getting a drum set by Tama or Pearl for the same price. I've never really like PDP that much because I've only been around their lower end drum sets but after listening to the Concept series, I thought it sounded pretty good. I came across a DW video of Cobus Potgieter playing his original "Breaking Out" and I LOVED the sound of the drum kit. I honestly thought he was playing a DW Performance Series (because that's what he plays in his other videos) and when I realized it was a PDP kit, I stopped looking for other kits and focused right on the PDP. I went on Sweetwater's website to look at different finishes and I stopped right after seeing the Pearlescent Black. (To be honest, I mainly got the PB because of the black hardware :3)I finally ordered it, and when it arrived in the mail... I kept away from human interaction for the rest of the day :DThe only thing that I can say is bad about this kit (and pretty much ever other kit) is that the stock heads are just awful. If you're like me and you play a lot of hard hitting genres like Heavy Metal or Punk Rock, these heads will get destroyed. Get whatever heads you prefer, but for this review I am using all Evans. For the snare I have a Powercenter Reverse Dot over a Hazy 300. For the toms I use G2 Clears over G1 Clears and for the bass drum I use an EMAD 2 over a custom EQ3 (using the pillow that came with the kit)I also tuned everything with a DrumDial; Trust me, if you're not good at tuning drums, this is a really good investmentI love the snare drum. It's a 14 x 5.5 Maple snare, not a Steel snare like other drum kits come with. You can get a really fat, deep sound or a really tight, popping sound (how I have it tuned).The toms are just amazing. Tuned correctly, they have a lot of sustain, and they have a really warm sound. With clear heads, you get a really nice attack.The bass drum echoes a lot without the included pillow, but if you put the pillow in the bass drum just slightly touching the batter head, you will get a really satisfying "kick" instead of an obnoxious "boom". You might have to adjust your pedal's clamp, because I used to play a Tama Rockstar, and the bass drum hoop was thinner where the pedal was mounted, but on this kit, the hoop is the same thickness all around, but there is a rubber piece where the pedal should go. Just an fyiIn all, get this kit, get some really good heads, and if you want amazing sounding drums, get a Drum Dial, you won't be disappointed!
