Beautiful, absolutely incredible. They really hit a home run with these performance kits; I love mine.

Did you install the 3P butt plate on the snare? Or did that come factory, because when my snare came, it didn't have the 3P on it. I ended up getting the store to keep it as a floor model, but they still have it, and I'm seriously tempted to go back and get it.

That I do ;) The kit's breathtaking isn't it? I tell ya, whenever I hear someone else on mine, it still takes my breath away, and the kick makes my heart stop, and I just get in a good mood. ESPECIALLY since I got my new snare :))) I have no regrets whatsoever about purchasing my DWPS kit ;)

Thanks KB! I installed the 3P myself.

Ooops.... my bad ;-)

About that stack you have (14" crash + 10" splash) how does it sound? It looks like it's positioned where you main crash should be, do you use it as your main crash ?

Great observation. My old configuration had the crash cymbals close together out front and I had the stack in the middle. I thought I would try to keep the stack in the middle like my old set-up. I didn't like it there and swapped it with my 16" since the pics were taken.

The stack has a trashy sound with a short sustain.

Hi K0T! Looks like we have the same taste in cymbals. I've done videos before but I'm always disappointed in the recording quality of the 10 mic in my camera. I don't have drum mics or even a nice Zoom. My camera can't do these drums justice.

Gorgeous! I love these kits so much. First time I've seen it in a six-piece configuration. They'll treat you great, though.

Hey thanks. I've really been enjoying playing these. I love the low end from these shells. I was planning on a 1 up, 2 down, but I found the 10" like new on eBay.

Thank you for the feedback KC. From date of order to date of delivery, 22 weeks 2 days. It was worth the wait. I still find myself saying WOW at how these drums sound.

Tom and Dave, thank you for your feedback. Looking at your post counts and how long you've been here, you must be discerning posters. I'm honored.

Marko, that's how it starts bro. I have a feeling we might be seeing pics of a DWPS under one of your threads in the future. Thanks again!
