I submitted Mapex, as that is what I got (and loving it!) But I think that DW is a great company also, - if i wouldn't have my Mapex I would've gone the DW route!!! Wink

Premier, eh? You like the look of the Premier Series?

It's between Pearl and Premier. I haven't yet played a Premier, but i am biased to like them. Undersized shells! *drool*

Nice, I've wondered about them. Jeff Hamilton plays them, and they sound so nice.

I LOVE my ten inch tom. My drum dimentions are perfect for my music preferences. I need coated heads though Sad. I Have one on my ten inch but I havent gotted any for my other drums.

Here's the order of my drum-kit journey over a long long period:

Slingerland  1963
Ludwig  1965
Rogers  1967 (kept this one 19 years!)
Gretsch 1970
Pearl (12 kits) 1974
Tama (12 kits) 1982
DW (16 kits ) 1990
Yamaha (8 kits) 2003 to present

Some changes were made to re-configure kits for playing needs.  Some changes were made because the
drums had depreciated out on my income tax returns.

I am quite happy with my Yamaha Products and the after sales service they do provide.  DW was also a fine company to work with for 13 great years.

I've played Ludwig, Slingerland (which I loved), and Premier (Special 75th Anniversary Edition Signia) which I sold last year.  A beautiful, great sounding set.  Right now I play A Gretsch set, with Pearl and Mapex add on toms and a variety of snares.  Each brand has its own character and sound.  I like Ludwig the least.  I love the sound of Gretsch, Slingerland and Premier.

PASHA, regarding: Thats a lot of drumkits!

Yes, but as you know I'm always rotating a kit out of use every year because of income tax deduction maximaization.  My kits normally get two years of playing time.  It may sound crazy to some readers but it's a financial practiciality for me.

I have, over the years, gained a lot of knowledge about what I want from a drum kit, and what work's best for my needs.   I willingly share that with those who want to hear those observations, but everyone has to find their own perferences.  There are lots of good drums to choose from today.

Agreed, and it does not actually cost that much money to rotate kits (that is IF you have a quality kits, which I am sure you do).

I just wish I would start doing that sometime soon  Cheesy

My first set was a 3 pc Weatherking in Orange Sparkle in 1970, bought used.
Moved on to a 5 pc Ludwig in 1975 new.
In the early 80's Tama came out with the Cordia Wood Artstar kit - so another 4 pc kit for me.
Two years ago I got the Pearl Rythym Traveler kit due to transportation limitations.
I was shocked at how good this kit sounds. And the entire kit will fit in the back seat of a sub compact car!
3 months ago I got the 4pc Gretch Catalina Club kit

Out of all of them the Tama kit had the most power and low end.
I used Evans Hydrolic Blue heads on this kit with clear thin bottoms = OMG

I was only 15 when I got the Ludwig, this was the ones that were coated on the inside and had the support rings, I really did not like the kit that well. But it was a christmas present ... so who's to complain?

The Pearl Traveler kit is amazing for what it is. and believe it or not the protone pearl heads that came with the kit are awesome!
Not alot of low end on the toms so I added a 16" floor tom to it.
The 20" kick drum amazes everyone with the Emad head. It sounds like a full sized kick when mic'ed

I am currently using the Gretsch kit with much pleasure.
The mounted tom and floor really sings.
The snare is nice and fat.
The "cannon" 22x20 looking bassdrum is solid with plenty of acoustic un mic'ed power
and it looks cool in alien blue!

I never have to use muffling in any of my drums.
If you tune them correctly you won't need it - and use Evans or Remo pinstripe for toms.
Best in my opinion
