Drum Workshop Inc. have added a host of new finishes, configurations and features to its boutique-inspired PDPConcept Series Drums, along with the launch of a new range of PDP Concept Select Metal Snare Drums and fourteen new accessories to expand the growing PDP range of drum accessories.
PDP Concept Series Maple range sees Twisted Ivory, Satin Pewter, Satin Olive, Satin Seafoam and Satin Blackfinishes added to the choice of finishes and a new Carbon Fiber finish with black nickel hardware. Added to the PDP Concept Series Exotic Drums choice of finishes is the new Honey Mahogany.
New configurations for PDP Concept Series Maple Drums are Bop (8”x12”, 14”x14” floor, 14”x18” kick) for a drummer with a lighter touch, Rock (9”x13”, 16”x16” floor, 14”x24” kick) for a more hard hitting style of playing and Fusion(8”x10”, 9”x12”, 14”x14” floor, 16”x20” kick) for the more eclectic player.
The PDP Concept Series are loaded with high end features. The tom and kick drums are now constructed with 7-ply European maple shells for maximum resonance. The snare with 10-ply European Maple is fitted with the trusted DW Mag Throw-off. All the drums now come fitted with True-Pitch Tension Rods and Remo Drumheads.
The PDP Aluminium Concept Select Snare has a seamless 3mm aluminum shell, fitted with satin walnut wood hoops and low-profile claw hooks. The aluminum shell creates a focused, dry tone with minimal overtones. The wood hoops add a warm earthy timbre whilst also enhancing playing comfort.
Also joining the range is the PDP Bell Bronze Concept Select Snare. Its heavy 3mm seamless bell bronze shell produces a thick, dense sound with a massive punchy attack.
Completing the new additions is the versatile and powerful PDP Steel Concept Select Snare. Its 3mm seamless steel shell offers supreme definition combined with incredible sensitivity.
All the snares are 6.5” x 14 in size and feature chrome hardware, True-Pitch® Tension Rods, DW Mag Throw-offs, Remo Drumheads and laser engraved PDP badges.
PDP Brand Manager, Rob Dean, explains, “The idea behind these laser engraved heavy duty 3mm metal snares is to try and give people a boutique style snare that sounds amazing, looks great but won’t break the bank.”
Finally, Drum Workshop Inc. has released fourteen new additions to the PDP accessory range…
The new PDP Drop-Lock Hi Hat Clutches allows players to temporarily ‘drop’ the hi-hats together and play them closed. Two versions will be available the Standard Drop-Lock Hi Hat Clutch and Quick-Release Drop-Lock Hi Hat Clutch.
Also included in the new PDP accessories a Boom Cymbal Arm assembly, a Heavy-Duty Multi-Clamp with Vari-Adjust Boom Arm and two L Arms, 10.5mm to ½” and ½” to ½”. PDP players can now enhance their kits with a whole new range of cymbal arms.
The new PDP Maple Counter Hoops and Standard Maple Counter Hoops for snares provide a very focused sound with a short sustain. They also give great control to the head and great cross sticking sound.
PDP have also added a solid Maple Bass Drum Beater to give a clean clicking sound, a Lite-Weight 21” Aluminum Floor Tom Leg Set for maximum sustain and just in case M6 x 20mm and M8 x 20mm Wing Screws (2 Pack).
