OVERVIEW

An e-drum kit featuring real shells and drum hardware that can be converted to an acoustic kit.

The Pearl e-Pro Live Electronic Drum Set has the appearance and feel of a real acoustic drum set. With a convertible option, this set can easily become acoustic. Enjoy playing an acoustic set that has the endless sonic capabilities of an electronic one. Instead of using 8 pads, play drums that are the actual sizes. With a real drum appearance, these drums are better suited for live events. Acoustic Shift The Pearl e-Pro Live can easily convert to an acoustic drum set making it the ultimate all-purpose purchase. To shift it to an acoustic set, simply remove the top hoop and the Tru-Trac head. From there put, on a regular drumhead and replace the top hoop. Tune your drums and play them as a true acoustic set.Real Drum Sizes and Shells The convertible drums in this e-Pro Live set have 6-ply poplar shells with durable finishes and sturdy hardware. The sizes are the same as a traditional acoustic set with rack toms of 10 x 6-1/2, 12 x 7, and 14 x 8. There is also a 20 x 12 bass and a 14 x 4-1/2 snare with white heads. The Tru-Trac drumheads have nearly an identical feel to acoustic drumheads. Their smooth coating helps moving from drum to drum and their dual zones recreate the intricacies that acoustic drums produce. Hardware All of the tom arms, shells, racks, and cymbal holders are covered by Pearl™s Lifetime Warranty. With a modified Icon Rack, the acoustic drum set characteristics continue. This rack can even accommodate more drums and cymbals while offering the true feel of playing an acoustic set. e-Classic Brass Cymbals These high-end e-Classic brass cymbals are actual, true cymbals. Instead of rubberized pads, these brass cymbals play like the real thing because they are. This set includes a pair of 12 hi-hats, a 13 chokeable crash, and a 3-zone 16 chokeable ride.R.E.D.

    Comments about Pearl e-Pro Live Electronic Drumset with E-Classic Cymbals:

    Electric vs. Acoustic Drums
    This has been a continuous concern of all drummers. I've been playing acoustic drum for over thirty years. I considered myself to be the most anti-electric drummer who ever lived. Well to make a long story shorter and to help drummers all around the world in their quest of which is best. I must say if it's not already been said somewhere out there…it really depends on the situation, the open mindedness, and the skills of the drummer.
    Skills, I implied because it is different playing on an electric set vs the acoustic. However, I really feel Pearls done a fabulous job with the E Pro Live Electronic Drum set with E-Classic Cymbals. Bottom Line Up Front (BLUF): The drum heads aren't like many heads out there that I examined thoroughly and played till the store manager threaten if I played one more beat I would have to purchase them!
    Anyhow, the only comparison was the Roland V-mesh head which had too much give; yet could be tighten to your own specification. Which in that case reminded me too much of the acoustic heads! The drum module has so many capabilities already preset I was amazed! I'm telling you; you must really play with each sound in order to make a sound judgment of its qualities and I only brought the e-drum set less than three weeks ago so I will write on it later. Back to the heads!!!
    The tru-trac heads is living up to its name. It does offer two zones. The cymbals I had an issue with at first until I realized two things one very important thing is when you put them in place …ENSURE THE ¼ PLUG JACKET ARE FACING OUTWARD!!!!. If you failed to do so it will eventually work itself out because most drummers are heavy hitters!!!! After I turned them around I've had no issues. The second thing is the brass cymbals must be secured tightly. It doesn't work like regular symbols…if you leave them lose they will break! Remember these are electric so the sounds come from the trigger.
    Another must have item to increase your feeling of e-drum is the Pearl Throne Thumper OH boy this little thing increase my sounds tenfold! Easy set-up of this item make it worth the $$$ the best part is the amp mounts to the rack! Great Job Pearl!
    I also got the Pearl Drum Monitors (head phones) and let me tell you; it made all the differences. I can hear everything. My personal experiences have always been stick with one main brand…try to use the same name brand for all the equipment that Pearl's offer it appears to works better. With that said I purchased the Roland PM-30 because Pearl doesn't have a drum monitor but if they ever make one I'll be looking into buying it. My PM-30 hasn't come yet but should arrive soon. Will get back with you on how well it operated with the Pearl's gear!
    BLUF: If you are an old head like myself try E Pro Live Electronic Drum set with E-Classic Cymbals, it looks real, feel real, and sound realer!!!! Never have to worry about tuning heads with this equipment. Oh yeah it is a two in one drum set. I haven't changed out because I still have my acoustic drum set set up next to my e-drums!

      Cymbals are sub par

      By Kenny Keith

      from Florida

      Comments about Pearl e-Pro Live Electronic Drumset with E-Classic Cymbals:

      Do not buy this kit if you are planning on playing live in any venue (Unless you use other cymbals) because they will not last. If you want to spend TONS of money and play them lightly in your bedroom, then these are the cymbals for you.
      The memory switch opion saves this kit. The other drums sounds are NOT good at all, but when you "BUY" another kit (from another company) These drums sound pretty good. However, the cymbals are really aweful, they do not hold up. We had to have 4 or 5 of them replaced. We gave up on them and bought another brand.
      I feel that the cymbals are not made to a high performance level. The input on the cymbal is held by two rivets in a PLASTIC box!! They do not stand up to the test of time LOVE the E PRO live drum set, but the cymbals are sub par. In my opinion, these cymbals are for "bedroom drummers" because once you start REALLY rehearsing live with them, they break like cheap plastic toys.
      For the money, go buy a real set, this are not gig worthy.

      e-Pro Live kit :D

      By Alexander Geis

      from Tennessee

      Comments about Pearl e-Pro Live Electronic Drumset with E-Classic Cymbals:

      I highly recommend this kit to anyone looking for an electronic kit for practice, performance, or fun!
      This kit can do anything I need it to. No matter what size of venue I am playing, the kit fits the job. The huge sound library is a great resource for my musical creativity, and the fact that I can get MORE sounds at the E-pro sound shop is really cool. The real-feeling heads are a great practice tool for me and my students. This kit makes a great practice tool, and works great in my practice studio. I love the aesthetics of the Redbox, and the interface is really easy to use.
      The real-feel cymbals are a big plus, since I love the feel of a real cymbal, rather than the rubber fake ones.
      The hardware is awesome! 'nuff said. I haven't had a problem with any hardware failure, and the hardware matches my acoustic kit's Pearl hardware.
      It's true, finally there's an electronic kit that LOOKS and SOUNDS like an actual drumset.
      Great quality all around. The hardware is amazingly strong and resilient. The drum-pads have slight markings from my sticks, but are still in great shape after a year of playing. The triggers function well and have a large range of dynamics. Even at very low dynamics, the pads trigger accurately. The cymbals can take a pretty good beating, with only having a few stick-marks.
      This is very effective and useful electronic kit. With the ability to be converted to an acoustic kit, two kits is better than one. I've performed with both the electronic and acoustic version of this kit, and it has worked wonderfully. With the coupling of the emersion pack (throne thumper and headphones), this kit is the total package.

      Not sure what its good for.

      By MarkRN

      from Central PA

      Comments about Pearl e-Pro Live Electronic Drumset with E-Classic Cymbals:

      The fact that you can change this into an acoustic kit is the only saving grace for this puppy, but the shells are not real high quality and the finish is a wrap. You could get a pretty decent DW kit for the cost of this if you are just going to turn it into acoustic. I just dont see any practical application for it. The cymbals are junk, the heads wear out and cannot be replaced, it cannot be individually lined out for professional use. It is a real waste of money. Pearl needs to go back to the drawing board on this one and make it more durable and able to be used by a professional sound board. AND DITCH THE JUNK CYMBALS!!! If you must have this kit, do yourself a favor and get the rubber cymbals, the black ones, I dont know if they make the same noise, but it cant be worse.
      The features are not too bad I suppose. I dont have a lot of experience with Edrum kits to know how it stacks up agains Roland or Simmons, etc... The red box is pretty easy to maneuver through until you get into its MIDI function. If you are just using this as a drum set for practice it has some great sounding kits available. But thats about where the coolness of this kit ends.
      The drums themselves seem to hold up OK, but the rubber heads are getting the crap beaten out of them after only 1 year of use at church where the kit gets played about 4 hours a week total use. The bass drum trutrac head is getting a hole worn in it from a felt beater mallot and when I hooked up a double bass pedal I had to adjust the pedal to move the beaters out of the divit that has been worn. Apparently Pearl doesnt offer these head for sale individually, unfortunate. The metal cymbals are rubbish. The first crash cymbal we had just stopped working so we sent it back to the company 4 months ago and have not received a new one. The ride cymbol was then moved to the crash spot and the rivits holding the trigger in place broke free and so it is currently taped with duct tape to the cymbal and you have to wail on the thing to get it to trigger. Keep in mind this is not a heavily used kit. The cymbals are really not durable at all.
      This is not a professional or even a semi professional use kit. There are only 2 outputs to run to the sound board. So forget about EQing individual drum and cymbal sounds. It isnt going to happen, its all or nothing. With the amount of money we spent on this kit it should have a ton more options for professional use, but it doesnt. When you beat on the metal cymbals with the plastic coating it make an incredibly loud "CLACK" sound which negates the kits use for low volume venues like bars because to override the clack sound you would have to turn it up to the point that an acoustic kit would be quieter. Same goes for if you are looking to play at home and dont want to disturb the neighbors. They wont hear loud drumming, just a loud clack noise over and over which might be more annoying than a full kit sound. We play for a 1500 member church and people complain all the time that the clacking on the cymbals is annoying. The sound carries. And playing the kit itself.... go play a fe rolls on your car tire and that is the feel of the drum heads. Now for the high hat hit hut your kitchen counter and imagine the stick not having as much bounce but just dying on impact and thats about what it is like. Epro live... NOT WORTH THE MONEY. Bottem line.
