ID this PDP kit

I am no expert, but based on the features and everything, I would guess this is an older intermediate+ set. Pacific's had some nice stuff a while back. The set at my church is a high end pacific and is a very nice set. Comparable to most any I have heard.

My PDP set has a badge on the base that has the model, FS, stamped on it. once you know that you should be able to determine the wood. My FS are Birch.

Based on the "pinched turret" lugs and the logo, I would peg them as pre-2005 low-level drums about equivalent to the EZ/Z5 drums that came later. Early PDP drums were pretty troublesome until about 2005 or 06 when the QC issues were largely dealt with.

A safer buy with PDP would be later 2000s stuff like 805, X7, M5, Platinum and Concept.

My set is an EZ set with a Z5 10" tom. With the right heads and tuning it's not too bad. Certainly not bad for a first set.
