Default my PDP M5s





not the world's greatest drums but they were a slight upgrade from my old Stage Customs, satisfying my want for a 100% maple shell. I play in the back of a barn so I'll hang on to them until I get a climate controlled playing space. they sound OK, don't really stay in tune. I get lots of compliments on the sunburst finish.

cymbals: 20" A custom projection ride, 16" A custom crash, 8" A custom splash, 13" K/Z hats, 17 and 18" K dark medium thin crashes.

plans: Yamahas of some sort, trade all the A customs for Ks. I WILL own a 22" K dark medium ride someday!

Very nice. I have the same kit minus the 8" tom. I personally like the M5s very much. Other than one bearing edge on my 12" tom that is a little uneven, these things sound awesome with good tuning range.

I have a 74' Ludwig Supraphonic snare and a TAMA Artwood 13" snare to go with it. I bought mine used for $200 with no snare. Couldn't pass that up.

K Custom Dark Ride 20"
K Dark thin medium crash 18"
A Brilliant medium crash 18"
14" New beat hats.

I see you're a fellow Carter fan as well.

Love the set up! Looks pretty comfy from the drivers seat. I owned an M5 for a brief period and thought they were fine sounding drums. Nice!

Nice looking set of PDPs.

I like the finish. Very Peart like with the rack toms :-)

PDPs are a bit underrated. I've been playing my CXs since 2003. Decent maple shells and the nicer hardware features of DW.

DW doesn't offer an 18 floor tom so I made my own. You can see it on the far left of this photo.
