Make sure you inspect them well prior to purchase for good edges and roundness. Can you imagine playing toms mounted onto that beast? But definatly go with the Mapex, even though the ‘s are probly pretty cheap now consider they’re discontinued. Post Tue Nov 13, 3: For a drum seven inches deep this seems inadequate, and the extra-long tension rods that link the lugs to the rims tell their own story. From jazz greats through to rock heroes, there is something about a single-rack tom kit that looks right. Unless you can find some overstock or one secondhand. I’ve been looking a used set for a while so I can have another kit to drag around that would hold its own unmic’d in higher volume scenarios.
I never cared for any of the finishes except for the black on black. If you’re after a kit with which to play cocktail jazz then this ain’t it. I was thinking of buying them and then doing my own hands on comparison between the two and then selling the other and probably even turn a good profit: Construction Quality and Tolerances Popping the rims off reveals a slightly unorthodox bearing edge. The alternative shell pack is a beast that comprises a 24″ kick, 14″ snare, 13″ rack and 16″ and 18″ floor toms. Use my crap ass basix snare for practice and then get out my good phattie when I’m in the studio or onstage.

This set is the standard 5 piece. I really play punk rock the most which is why I’m leaning towards the ‘s, however I also like to play some jazz on occasions. Try there before pulling the trigger on either of these. I can only comment on the Pvpwhich I love.
Image 1 of 3 These drums are loud and brash for a reason. Cross measuring the shell reveals 0.
The thing is, I actually already own the Pearls. Image 2 of 3 All-birch hardware ensure a level of attack that is on a par with the kit’s looks. Tuned up the reward you with crisp, clear and distinctive pops and cracks. Swapping the supplied Remo UK clear heads for coated Ambassadors calmed things down a little and added some depth, but it seemed a little futile, in the way that asking a racing driver to slow down would be.
A hinged mounting bracket rounds out the hardware list. I know it is not a Pearl Reference series, but it is a great kit for the price range.
Interestingly there is no 22″ kick drum option, which we like as it provides a clear distinction between the two kits. Its relatively small diameter ensured a clean, quick decay, while its length provided maximum projection. The guy that came up with the idea of ISS Mounts needs castrated. You get the STM mounts, higher pitch thread tuning rods and the same bearing edge cut as on the higher end DWs.

Go for the M birch. So I was wondering if someone could kinda give a comparison of these two sets. I don’t mean to slam the drum kit. The lacquer finishes – for which there is no extra charge – are even more intense, with the choice of red, green or orange hardware adding neon-like luminosity.
On the snare side we seriew surprised at the absence of a snare bed. It’s made from poplar wood which is what most lower end kits are made from and i just never really liked the sound of it.
Pacific originally came out with the series serues. Cranking the tuning up to the higher reaches it turned in a respectable performance, delivering a penetrating crack.
Drkms mount directly to the hoop and IMO it hurt with the drum resonateing. I beleive most of them is made from birch which is a bit better wood than poplar plus the tom mounts are on the side of the shell Most likely due to the absence of a snare bed. What really sets it apart, though, is the finish.

The time now is Find all posts by joshthedrumkid I like Mapex so much, I’ve upgraded to Saturns now. Mounting Bracket Tuned up the reward you with crisp, clear and distinctive pops and cracks. Some owners have reported involuntary throw-offs when the snares are loosely tensioned, but this is not the case with our sample.
While the tom, floor toms and kick drum are all equipped with sufficient drmus of lugs, the snare drum gets by with a mere six.
Various attempts at identifying the wood species of the centre plies turned up nothing. Construction Quality and Tolerances Popping the rims off reveals a slightly unorthodox bearing edge.
