Pacific Drums and Percussion or PDP for short is a subsidiary company under Drum Workshop established in the year 2000 to provide high quality drum equipment at lower prices to that of the prestige DW equipment. Their factory is located in Ensenada, Mexico and utilizes some of the same custom techniques as DW as well as computerized machinery to create high quality drums at reduced costs. Pacific Drums have now made DW's innovation and quality available to a larger market, while still maintaining the reputation of DW drums as high-end unique instruments.

It’s no mystery why X7 is one of our top sellers. We created a F.A.S.T.™-sized all-maple beauty with a stunning lacquer finish and a host of top shelf features that was accessible to drummers everywhere. Not only do you get Remo heads, STM (Suspension Tom Mounts) and True Pitch™ Tuning, but you get a kit that is made to last. The set includes 7x8", 8x10", 9x12" rack toms, 12x14" and 14x16" floor toms, an 18x22" kick drum and a matching 5x14" snare drum.
We think every drummer should be able to play on a pro-quality drumset. That’s why we created the X7. The complete 7-piece kit comes in F.A.S.T. (fundamentally accurate sized toms) sizes with an18x22” kick drum, 5x14” snare, 7x8”, 8x10”, 9x12” 12x14” and 14x16” toms, as well as loads of pro features like STM mounts, Remo heads, True- Pitch Tuning System and eight killer sparkle lacquer finishes.
The M5 is a breakthrough kit. Not because of a new technology or state-of-the-art innovation, but because it’s an all maple kit for an unheard-of price tag. So, why is maple the preferred material for drum making? Because of its inherent sonic qualities. Maple sounds warm, yet punchy, it projects and has pleasing tonal qualities that make it very musical. Drum manufacturers have been singing maple’s praises for decades, but it was only available to a select few. Now, every drummer can enjoy the sweet sound of maple and look good doing it. M5 five-piece kits include F.A.S.T™-sized 8x10" and 9x12" rack toms, 12x14" floor tom with legs, 18x22" kick drum and matching 5x14" snare drum. 7x8" and 14x16" add-on toms are also offered in each finish.
Setting the drum world on its ear again, FS is a F.A.S.T™-sized all-birch set that features STM™ (Suspension Tom Mount), True Pitch™ Tuning and Remo heads. Birch is said to offer a brighter tone than maple, but still posseses the warmth and projection that also make it an excellent material for drum making. In fact, birch became very popular in the 80’s and has endured for more than two decades. FS comes with 8x10" and 9x12" rack toms, 12x14" floor tom on legs, 18x22" kick drum and matching 5x14" snare drum. 7x8" and 14x16" add-on toms are also available in all finishes.
The all-new Mainstage is a pre-configured entry level kit that includes drums, pedals, hardware, cymbals and even a throne. The drums feature hardwood construction in a durable wrapped finish. Sabian cymbals and a full hardware pack complete the rig. Drum sizes are 8x10" & 9x12" toms, 14x16" floor tom, 18x22" bass drum and 5x14" matching snare. The hardware pack includes a CB700 cymbal boom stand, CS700 straight cymbal stand, SS700 snare stand, HH700 hi-hat stand and a drum throne. The 4-piece cymbal pack includes 13" top and bottom hi-hats, 20" ride and 16" crash. Cymbals are included with kit in the US only. Other international markets may vary.
