Compact Kit with a Classic Sound

The PDP New Yorker has an upscale look and an open tone that's missing from many modern kits. The New Yorker's compact, all-poplar shells leave a lot of breathing room in an ensemble, which tends to work well for live jazz, funk, and hip-hop. Even so, Sweetwater drummers were impressed with the amount of low end the New Yorker is capable of putting out. With close mics and proper tuning, we're sure the New Yorker would hold its own in a modern indie or alternative mix. PDP was kind enough to include a bass drum riser in this shell pack, which, combined with a cutaway in the batter-side hoop, lets you use your favorite kick pedal with minimal difference in response.

PDP New Yorker 4-piece Shell Pack at a Glance:
  • Compact poplar shells free up space in a mix and onstage
  • PDP hardware enhances resonance and tuning
  • Includes Remo heads for a classic tone
Compact poplar shells free up space in a mix and onstage

It's always a treat to play kits that have the classic sound that inspired the early greats. The PDP New Yorker's shells are compact and made from solid poplar, which gives them a nice open tone that gives good dynamic feedback and responds to room characteristics. The New Yorker's small size also makes it nice for traveling - you can easily fit the entire four-piece shell pack in a hatchback and still have room for hardware.

PDP hardware enhances resonance and tuning

The PDP New Yorker began its life a decade ago as a portable DW Custom Shop kit. Its legacy of quality performance lives on in PDP's hardware. Low-mass Teardrop mini lugs maximize shell resonance for a lively sound, and True-Pitch tuning rods with fine threads allow for precise tuning.

Includes Remo heads for a classic tone

A full battery of industry-standard Remo heads gives the PDP New Yorker a great tone right out of the box. Sweetwater drummers enjoyed the smooth, subdued tones these brought out in the drums and feel they're a good starting place for drummers of all levels.

PDP New Yorker 4-piece Shell Pack Features:
  • Upscale look with an open tone
  • Great for jazz, hip-hop, and alternative rock
  • Impressive low end with close-miking
  • Compact 100% poplar shells exhibit a classic sound
  • Teardrop mini turret lugs have low mass to maximize resonance

Still not worth it

Average stuff but still like most DW stuff it's prices way out of the market compared to stuff just as good if not better.
Music background: Drummer
1.5/5

It wasn't mind blowing

the drum was small and the bass drum was to tiny and quiet.
