    GMS has always been respected among those in the know.

    i think there is a difference between popularity and being underrated.

    un·der·rate Audio pronunciation of "underrated" ( P ) Pronunciation Key (ndr-rt)

    To rate too low; underestimate.

    no one i know ever doubted they make an amazing product.

    i was just curious what you guys thought of dw because i've never played on a dw kit and i noticed that a lot of drummers use them. i didn't know if they were as good as everyone thought or not. i've been wanting to try out a dw kit for awhile to see for myself.

    Famous people playing a certain brand doesn't mean a thing to me to be honest. Even if it's my favorite drummer. And also the most expensive or most popular brand doesn't make it the best-soundind for YOU. I've read many threads about people being largely dissapointed by DW and finding much cheaper high-end kits to sound much better and sport better features. And I find their pricing unjustified. It's mostly the whole "made in the USA" hype, not only with their drums, but also with their hardware.

    I agree 100%.

    Also Feck Campaign said he's known him to play Ludwig.

    Funny story: My g/f had met Blotz & his g/f the night before & hung out. So the next night she was going out with them again so I figured since I'd probably being meeting him too,I'm the drummer here so we could maybe talk drums,gear & what not. I thought I'd do a little research & see what kind of drums he played. I looked online & to see if he had any endorsements. All I could find was just his cymbal & drumstick endorsements. Finally I found something that mentioned his contract with Ludwig. So I thought I could talk to him about that. Well,sure enough I run into him that night at a bar. So just to start the conversation I said,"So are you still endorsed by Ludwig?"

    He says,"I've never played Ludwig,I've always played Yamaha...."

    I was like :|

    lol... I got owned by the Blotz.

    I would say premier. I play gen-x's and I think they are absolutly amazing, but not a lot of people play them anymore. I would also like to add DDRUM. I have played a couple of their kits and they are awesome....... but they could be underrated because they are new also.

    I agree and disagree. Ludwig did this to themselves. They got too big and cocky and their product went down the drain. I don't know if they are back from where they were back in the 70's.

    im sure ive replyed to this thread ....

    ocdp are overrated i probably said .... then again i would ... however they make great kits (most the time) (some designs are the problem of the owner not the maker)

    tama , pearl, mapex = not overrated / but not underated

    sonor , lugwig, yamaha, taye, preimer = underated , but only because they have to compete wid the top 3 ....
