Bring the Retro Backbeat
In 2014, we introduced the world to the PDP LTD Wood Hoop Snare. That drum led to a complete line of 3-piece, vintage-inspired kits that we aptly titled Concept Maple Classic. Ironically, the only things missing were the snare drums. We listened. Introducing, Concept Maple Classic snares to match every available color option that we offer. Was it worth the wait? We think so.
PDP proudly brings you the Concept Series™ Drums, a completely re-imagined line of boutique-inspired drums, designed for every drummer. Designed with research assistance from the DW Custom Shop, Concept Series™ Drums have a fresh, new look, and a sound that has drummers talking. Choose from Concept™ Maple or Concept™ Birch shells, in a myriad of today’s most popular configurations. Then, add toms or bass drums to build a custom kit to suit your musical style.
Concept Series™ Drums are loaded with high-end features. Our 10-ply Concept™ snares include the trusted MAG throw-off, along with fully-chromed snare wires, featuring carbon steel coils and brass end plates. And all Concept™ Drums are constructed with DW’s True-Pitch tension rods, graduated counterhoop thicknesses, durable and eye-catching finishes, our retro-inspired, dual-turret lugs, and world-renowned Remo drum heads.
Concept™ Maple drums are constructed with pure maple shells, and are available in eight premium finishes, all with chrome hardware.
With professional-level features that unquestionably honor its DW roots, the PDP Concept Series™ delivers high-quality, original style that you can see and hear.
The PDP Concept Series™ introduced drummers to original, boutique-style drums with professional-grade features. And, Drum Workshop has become synonymous with exotic wood veneers on high-quality drum shells. So, PDP brought these two innovations together to bring you our Concept™ Maple Exotics.
The Concept™ Maple Exotics drums are constructed with maple shells, wrapped in an outer veneer of rich walnut, and finished with a glossy, Charcoal Burst lacquer. So, you can count on these drums to turn heads wherever they go.
Then, the Concept™ Exotics offer the same, pro-level features as their Concept™ Maple and Birch cousins. The 10-ply snares include the trusted MAG throw-off, along with fully-chromed snare wires, featuring carbon steel coils and brass end plates. And, just like all Concept™ drums, the Concept™ Exotics are made with DW’s True Pitch tension rods, graduated counterhoop thicknesses, our retro-inspired, dual-turret lugs, and world-renowned Remo drum heads.
And the sound? Concept™ Exotics fill the room with extraordinary warmth and projection, customizable with add-on toms to adapt to a wide variety of musical styles.
Want to get attention with your look and sound? Try the Concept™ Maple Exotics, and you’ll quickly understand why so many drummers are flocking to PDP.
True-Pitch Tension Rods
The Concept™ Wood Hoop has a fat-sounding backbeat courtesy of an uber-thick 20-ply, all-maple shell. Matching maple-plied wood counter hoops complete the drum. The Concept™ Wood Hoop snare is fitted with dual-turret lugs, MAG throw-off, and Remo heads.
