Chad Smith -> DW
« on: March 07, 2016, 11:54:52 AM »
Got email from DW:

"New Album. New Tour. New DRUMS! "

"After 30 years with the same drum company, I've decided to make a switch to playing DW. They're located right here in California, and I'm working with closely with them to design a killer, custom drumset to take out on tour this May. It's going to be slamming!" -- Chad Smith

We’re thrilled to welcome Chad Smith of the Red Hot Chili Peppers as the newest member of our DW Family. Not only is he an incredible drummer, but we also consider him a long-time friend. The best is yet to come!

But why?

The only difference buying DW drums, all the drums are perfectly tuned. Unlike Pearl, you have to tune it.  :|

My problem with this is I'm having a hard time thinking if this is even possible...I can't think of a mid range DW (comparable price point of view, that is).
Maybe a comparison between a mid range Pearl and DW's PDP line? Anyone can correct me anytime, di naman ako sensitive  :-D

I wouldn't know.  Mine is a Collector's Series one-off.  But if its any indicator, the japanese in tokyo think that Pearl is the worst sounding of the Japanese drum brands.  The best for them would be sakae.

dw performance series mahal pa rin and i dont think it qualifies as midrange. parang highend pa rin sya na hindi custom, 90k for a 4 piece shell pack last time i checked wala pa shipping.

now pearl vs pdp, i will take pearl sessions anytime over pdp.

Back to Chad Smith, I agree with you guys, maybe his hearing is changing or just a change in sonic preference. But my take is his switch is an economic move more than drum pride.
