If you were refering to the Evans ec2's., They are a 2ply head with a built in edge material that does a fabulous job of cancelling some of the unwanted higher frequency "ring" from the drum, without killing the resonance. They make this kit sound real fat! I was always using Evans G2's on my toms, and found that I had to use moongels to flatten out the ringyness. I recommend these EC2s for heavy hitters> Hope that answered your question. Peace, and thanks for the compliments! I am looking to replace the ZBTs with a customs very soon. Will post more pics when that happens!http://

I'm using them right now on my newer kit and I quite like 'em. However, next time I refresh heads I'll definitely go straight (clear) emperors on the batter and ambassadors on the resos.

EC2s are definitely interesting heads. They give you a fat round sound and they do a good job of not erasing the tone, like some self-dampening heads can do. What I miss is the ring of the toms. They also rob you of quite a bit of volume. Call me crazy, I like my drums to sing. I was using a Genera Dry on my snare and couldn't stand it anymore...I had to have the ring back so I put a coated ambassador back on it.

Long story short...I like 'em but don't imagine I'll buy them again.

I have said this about pdp snares in the past but,,, PDP make some of the nicest sounding stocker snare drums! excellent tuning range (as with all the drums in this series) tuned up high= piercing "woody" crack, phenom. rimshots
tuned mid to low=MEATY, still great response Just a real nice drum that I am proud to own and play.. And yeah, the finish on this kit is stunning! My posted pics don't do it much justice.

Dude,
That's a great kit for the money! The local GC sells that exact kit for about $700. It's an extreme deal! Orange sparkle, lacquer finish, 7 piece, Dw quality, can't beat it! I think it definatly knocks Gretsch catalina series out of the 1rst place spot for quality, performance, sound and appearance for the $800 price range. Congrats!

...DAMN!!!!

Where were all of these killer deals on killer kits when I first started playing ? Those are very nice. If I could have found a kit like that as my first kit, I would still have them.

Very nice, congrats.

Yeah, I got these at Guitar Center here in Wisconsin. Got a screamin' deal! They truly do blow the doors off any other shelly in the $700-$800 range! and yes folks, that includes the Catalinas. I tested them both side by side. Among about 5 other kits in that range .And IMO, Nothing in this price range even came close in sound, build and value! Hats off to PDP/Drum Workshop!

Thanks..I love this finish also The sizes in the previous posted photos are F.A.S.T. tom sizes: 7x8, 8x10, 9x12, 12x14ft, 14x16ft, 5x14sn, 18x22kick
I've been messing with some altenate setups This one is pretty comfy. might move the 14" floor on the left side. I'll be incorporating the 8" and 12" tom as soon as I get back over to G.C. to ear test some Zildjian A Customs. Santa is coming y'know! Sorry for the fuzzy pic...too much coffee..lol!

Congrats on the kit!

I actually steered a student over to look at this kit at a local store here, but the sales guy pushed too hard and too quick and the kid didn't buy them.. too bad. They seem like a really great drumset..

Down here they are selling for $1999 AuD (about 1700 or so USD), so for the money you are paying for them, KILLER DEAL!

If they were that cheap here I would buy myself a set to use for gigging and leave my RC's set up at home.

Besides, I fell in love with the finish LOL..

Cheers

Import fees and tariffs Ahhhggggghhhhh! Yeah, I got the 7 pc shell pack for..well, I won't tell you the price I paid, It'll just make you angry. And yeah, it is a shame that the kid didn't get these drums! They really do sound fabulous! I am some what discerning being at this for over 30 years. Peace and G'day

I can't wait to get my hands on my own orange sparkle dream kit...I seriously look at this thread a couple times a day just to swoon...I don't know what it is about this kit, but it just grabbed me from the moment I saw it...The number of drums, the appearance, that sparkle in my favorite shade of burnt orange...Couple all of that with a name like Drum Workshop (and Pacific respectively) and I was sold...I still have a picture of them that was taken at this year's Winter NAMM show as my desktop background :D

Gigging with it is gonna be a blast...This kit will match my RS1 Scion xB perfectly :D

Beautiful sparkle finish. Nice to hear that you're looking into some A Customs to compliment the kit.

Whoa man... you know you can put some of the moongel on a different drum, it doesn't all have to be on one! Some overtones are acceptable, IMO. But hey there are no rules to drumming.

Actually.. I play in 2 different bands. We don't play at any one church.. We play at retreats, Sunday worship services. Burns etc. we go all over my state and even travel outta state. But HECKYEAH..these drums are great! Any more questions about "faithbased" drumming Send me a PM

OOoo yeah..A customs..love 'em! from a whisper to a roar..soo responsive! About the overdose of moonies on my 14" floor.. Gotta work on tuning that monster a little more. Believe me, even with a whole herd of moons on that drum, it still resonates like all get out!
