PDP upgrades entire hardware line


(16th August, 2021 – Oxnard, CA) Pacific Drums and Percussion (PDP) have re-engineered their complete line of hardware series, streamlining the ranges and re-designing over 30 stands and pedals for the cost conscious drummer. The comprehensive range of durable hardware extends from the lightweight 700 series through to tour ready Concept series heavy duty stands, all designed incorporating road tested features, new PDP logo and innovative solutions for players of every musical genre and skill level.

Lightweight and portable, the 700 Series hardware is perfect for local gigs, bop set-ups, rehearsal rooms, classrooms, and more. The upgraded series is available as a 5-piece hardware pack or separately. The new features across this series include variable-position Glide Tilter™, double-braced legs, anti-slip feet, new ergonomic wing nuts and updated logos throughout, plus there are new 700 series pedals (single, double pedals including lefty).

The upgraded medium-weight 800 series hardware noticeable differences are the  2-tier boom cymbal stand that can also be converted into a straight stand in seconds. Other new pro-inspired features include Quick-Release wing nuts, lightweight composite memory locks on all of the tube joints and oversized anti-slip rubber feet. All the pedals, including the hi-hat, feature the smooth cast footboard, with integrated needle bearing hinges and the new and improved 800 series pedals are dual chain with concentric drive system for an ultra-smooth feel.

Completely re-designed is the tour-ready Concept Series hardware: heavy gauge steel tubing is now outfitted with robust hinged tube joints and the modular QuickGrip™ clamp system. Pro-features integrated include Leverage Ratchet Handles™, Quick-Release cymbal wing nuts, removeable infinite tilters on the cymbal stands, lightweight composite memory locks, and oversized anti-slip rubber feet. There’s a ball-and-socket basket adjustment on the double-braced dual tom and snare stands and multi-position tension adjustment on both the two and three leg hi-hat stands. The Concept pedals now feature a new toe-clamp system, magnet drum key, single posts on the chain and direct drive pedals and DW Control Beaters™ on direct drive models for ultimate customization of the beater feel.
