Pacific Drums & Percussion  offers new Blackout snare drum line

Drum Workshop, Inc. recently unveiled a new line of quality, yet value-priced, snare drums aimed at working drummers, students and weekend warriors everywhere. The aptly named Blackout series from Pacific Drums and Percussion features a stealthy black on black appearance that is neutral enough to fit in with every kit.

Designed to offer a quality, all-maple lacquer drum at a very competitive price, the Blackout Series is available in 6x10” (retail $218.99), 4x13”(retail $272.99)”, 5x14”(retail $272.99) and 6x14”(retail $272.99) sizes and features an all-maple shell, high gloss black lacquer finish, side-to-side throw-off, oval lugs and Remo heads.

Vice President of Sales, Jim DeStefano, explains, “It’s obvious that drummers are seeing better values than ever at their local drum shops. Long gone are the days when drum companies can down spec products and still get the sale because the price is right. The fact is that the market is flooded with really good sounding stuff for a fraction of the price of what drummers used to pay, even ten years ago. We think our Blackout snares are PDPs answer to today’s expectations.”

Pacific Drums and Percussion (or PDP for short) is a subsidiary company under Drum Workshop established in the year 2000 to provide high quality drum equipment to those unable to afford the higher prestige and quality Drum Workshop equipment. Pacific Drums and Percussion also manufactures drum hardware and accessories. Their factory is located at Ensenada, Mexico. DW created a line of drums to meet the demand for entry to mid-level players. The line still uses some custom techniques, but primarily uses computerized machinery to cut costs and reduce steps to create high-quality drums in large quantities. Pacific Drums have now made DW's innovation and quality available to a larger market, while still maintaining the reputation of DW drums as high-end unique instruments.
