Default My PDP CX maple kit

I recently got a PDP CX maple kit used off craigslist for half what I would pay for a new concept maple. I absolutely love this kit. It sounds phenomenal. The only thing I would change is make the snare a 14x6.5 instead of 14x5.5. It's the onyx white wrap that looks amazing. I'll post pictures later. I've been waiting for cymbals to come in since I sent my first set back.

Mounted toms
8x7
10x8
12x9
14x12

Here are some pictures. I have everything crammed into a corner of the room. Didn't have enough room to put the 16" tom inline with the 14" so I put it to the left of the snare. I'm still waiting for my splash to come in from guitar center. I'm also considering adding a 3rd crash cymbal. If I did it would probably be a 17 or 19 stage crash.

I'm really envious of your 16" floor tom. I have the exact same kit, same color. I bought an X7 floor tom for 89 bucks and rewrapped in in white onyx.

Nice gig kit, all the nice features of DW minus the price tag. I got my set for 125, the floor tom was extra, plus I had to buy a 10" tom for 100 bucks, mine didn't come with one.

But this is about your set. Nice set, play it in good health.

Very nice kit! I can also agree it looks healthy and great condition. The white onyx is desirable.

i may look into something similar. I need a gig out kit. I recently been taking out the dw to play at a friends and kind of dislike the idea. Used pdp wouldnt be a bad idea

Very nice. All of the X7 kits I have seen and attempted to play have felt and sounded great. Congrats; it's a real steal.

Last year I pieced together a kit with a PDP FS kick, a PDP platinum 12" rack, a DW performance 10" rack, A DW Performance 14" Floor and a PDP platinum 16" floor....The PDP are in that blue to black fade and the DW are in the sapphire blue.

This PDwP kit outperforms my Tama B/B Starclassic......it sounds really nice.

Throwing in some updated pictures. Moved it to the middle of the room to allow for more room to play, and so I could move the 16" tom to where it belongs. I've changed out some stands as well and added a splash and an extra crash. Everything is suspended mounted now. Nothing from the floor or bass drum. The floor toms are inspired by my favorite drummer The Rev.
