7 piece -I personally would have a hard time paying that much money for a set of PDP's, but that's just me. Seems like you could find a set of Starclassic maple or B/B's or Saturns for that price range.
Also, what do you mean by 7-piece? 2 kicks or 1?
I would possibly ignore the kinds of finishes at this point and play on doing some black bumwrap or something if you really wanted black drums.
Also getting a Gibraltar stealth vertical mounting rack and will replace all the stock heads with Evan's G2 clears. Bass drum will have an Evan's EMAD. I honestly would go with Tama but I can not find a finish I like and I know it is about sound but this will be the drum set I will be playing on for the next at least 7 or 8 years. I was also looking at SJC I don't know much about them again because all i have ever played on is a Pearl. Lol
