This PDP Concept Classic Bop kit is a great shell pack for any drummer looking for a smaller kit with wonderful tone! I use this kit for playing in small venues and I take it to band rehearsals often. I love the wood hoops on this kit! They really add a lot more warmth to the drums than what is there already. Also, this kit is an eye catcher!! People love the look of this kit when I gig out with it! I own the natural finish shell pack. I decided to upgrade from a 16" kick drum to this 18" kick drum, and it can really handle all styles of music! I would recommend this shell pack to any drummer looking for a great smaller shell pack! My favorite feature is the wood hoops! This is a product review by Rocky at Sam Ash Music in Indianapolis, IN store#57.
