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.

Thank you for the comments guys! I'm glad DW decided to do this. It really is a great kit. Ciz, I know you already know that!
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.

LOL trust me I'm picky on who I let on my kit, but my brothers learning, so I'll give him something to work on while I go admire the kit :) I could just about sit there all day and listen to them ;)

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.
