Drummer for Framework,
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
This review is from: Pacific Drums DW X7 Shell Pack, Maple, Silver to Black Fade (Electronics)
I'm the drummer for the rock band Framework. Ordered this set here after seeing it and examining in a music store. I was very surprised and pleased that it came with all the mounting hardware - after asking and no one working in the store having a clue. A great steal in price considering this fact.
Also, the color is awesome. Not to showy, not too tacky. Works great with lighting in smaller to medium sized venues. I play at the Knitting Factory often, and it looks great on stage with the band. Despite other reviews, the color really does work for a hard rock band. I don't feel like a pop band drummer, and my band thinks the color is perfect for our style and look.
They sound great, but I ordered my own heads as I'm not a big fan of manufacturer's heads. I will use the manufacturer's heads to put on my beater set for rehearsals. Also, if you order a head with built in muffling ring system, the bass sounds AWESOME!
If you order this set, it will also come fairly quick. The original estimate was a month, and it arrived in less than 2 weeks, and it came from 3k miles away.
Don't hesitate. This series is great.
