Could DW, if they are not careful, turn into the next Gibson? Too many irons in one fire? Just something to think about. Good and (especially) Lombardi are close to "hanging it up" age. A whole bunch of assets to eventually to unload for big $$$ to an entity that may not care about musicians. Just something to think about.Thinking DW, when seeing a Gretsch drum set, will always be the last thing on my mind. They were making great looking and sounding drums before DW got their distribution rights. But that's just me. Quite frankly I don't understand why DW didn't just name the PDP brand, a PDP series of DW 20 years ago. Almost as if even they thought the PDP were not of good enough quality to bear the DW brand. And yet they were PDP by DW. The PDP snares above look great, especially the one with the dark wood hoops.
