Drum Workshop DW COLLECTORS ROYAL BLUE DIAMOND (FINISH PLY) 4PC KIT Reviews 5

HOW::SURFFIN THE NET. I BOUGHT THIS KIT THROUGH EBAY NEW/USED LIKE MY 4 OTHERS...I HAVE PLAYED DRUMS 24 YEARS. WHY:: I HAVE BEEN THROUGH A LOT OF KITS PRO SOUND. BUT WHEN I FOUND DW I KNEW THERE WOULD BE NO TURNING BACK. I HAVE A BLUE DIAMOND FINISH PLY 4 PC KIT 2002 MODEL. BASS 18 X 22"/ SNARE 7 X 14"/ TOM 12 X 12"/FLOOR TOM 16 X 16".

THE BASS WELL... IS AWSOM .I HAVE A EVANS EMAD BASS HEAD ON THE KICK AND EVANS ON TOMS. IT SOUNDS VERY WARM AND SOLID. THERE ARE STILL LOTS OF DEFFINATION IN THE KICK BEING SO LOW. IT IS NOT BOING-E NO NASTY OVER TONES. FATE ,FULL AND SMOOTH LOUD. TO IT SOUNDS LIKE I AM ALREADY IN THE STUDIO HOOKED UP TO THE HEAD PHONES. DW HAS THE ONCE IN A LIFE TIME RECIPE ON THE SHELLS. I HAVE NEVER EXPERIANCE HAVING PROBLEMS WITH TUNING. MINE STAY IN TUNE FOR A LONG TIME AS LONG AS YOU TAKE CARE OF THEM AND THE ROOM TEMP. THE FINISH PLY IS VERY NICE AND TIGHT. NO BAD GLUE OR BUBBLING .

WHAT I DO NOT LIKE ABOUT THE DW DEALERS/COMPANY. I LIVE IN A SMALL TOWN AND WE DO NOT CARRY DW HERE. I CAN NOT BUY DW OVER THE PHONE. I HAVE TO DRIVE 200+ MILES TO THE NEAREST DEALER.TO ORDER A KIT. NO PHONE CALLS. LOTS OF MUSIC STORES WILL LOOSE BUSINESS BECAUSE OF THIS. I GO TO EBAY + 1000's OF OTHER PEOPLE BECAUSE OF THIS PROBLEM. I BOUGHT MY LAST 4 KITS THAT WAY.THEIR LOSS..... THEY ARE A BIT PRICE E.YOU CAN GET THE SAME KIT FOR 1/2 THE PRICE.

CONSTRUCTION LIKE NO OTHER OUT THERE. I DO NOT KNOW WHY THEY SOUND SO MUCH DIFFERENT THAN OTHER MAPLE SHELLS BUT THEY DO. A WORLD APART. THEY BULID THE SNARES SO TOUGH. THE CRACK AND TIGHTNESS IS THE BEST. YOU CAN REIAN THE LAZYEST BASS PLAYER BACK IN THE POCKET WITH THE SNARE. THERE IS NO WAY IT CAN BE IGNORED.

I WOULD BUY THE DRUM WORKSHOP COLLECTOR SERIES AGAIN AND AGAIN.... I HAVE.....JUST GO OUT AND TEST PLAY A KIT. JUST ONE TIME.. I DO NOT KNOW ABOUT YOU... BUT QUALITY EQUIPTMENT MAKES ME PLAY A HOLE LOT BETTER. I SOUND GOOD. I AM AMAZED AT THE SOUND. ALSO AT THE CONFIDENCE IT GIVES ME.
