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

PDP New Yorker

So I wanted to wait a long while to write a review for this kit .....so here goes..... I did a lot of research looking at the small "bebop club kits" because I play a lot of small bars and venues with a band that plays music from the 50s through the 80s. I looked at all the major brands and because I knew I would play this kit a lot I didn't want to spend a lot of money. When I received the kit I immediately polished the shells with a very light coat of Meguires car wax. I put a dab of grease on all the tuning lugs and put the kit together.(i do this with all my drums) I'm currently using Evans G2 Coated heads on all the drums and left the stock reso heads on the bottom. After a while I changed the stock reso heads with the stock clear batter heads because it gave me a bit more lower tone. Let me start by telling you that this kit has done EVERYTHING I needed and then some!!!!! What I love is it does have the 18" bass drum and is punchy enough for what I need. The toms and snare sound amazing! I get constant compliments from other drummers and band people about this kit!!! Now it did take a few shows to get it tuned to what I like but since then it's been awesome from there!!! I absolutely LOVE LOVE LOVE this drum set and for price how can you not. I play this drum set 95% of the time now. I haven't played my other kit since last year! This has been a wonderful purchase and I recommend it to others!!!
