OVERVIEW

Some of the best-selling drums of all time, the Export Series by Pearl.

Like a legendary group or solo act whose mystique only grew during inactivity, the Export Series from Pearl is back and ready to help you take your act on the road. Unlike that aged group or musician, Pearl Export has only improved with age. Offering new hardware features, SST shell construction and suspended mounts, these Export drums are better than you remember them. The 6-ply poplar and mahogany shells churn out balanced attack and full tone, while the high-end hardware will make your trip down memory lane a pleasant one.

Pearl's updated Export Series offers a sonically advanced recipe of strategically arranged plies of premium wood to maximize frequency response of every component. As with all Pearl drums, each shell is formed from our legendary SST construction process that uses extreme heat, Precision-cut scarf joints, proprietary Acoustiglue and over 1000lb. of hydraulic pressure to create the ultimate acoustic air chamber.

Further emphasizing Pearl's "sound first" philosophy are the new lugs specifically designed for Export with sound-enhancement in mind. Designed for minimal shell interaction, they have a small footprint and low-mass for maximum resonance and sustain. Their bold look is modern but with a nod to lugs from Pearl's past.

Export rack toms are equipped with Pearl's new Opti-Loc Mounting System that features a triangular design with two tension rod attachment points and another through one of the drum's two air vents. Rubber isolators at all connection points allow the drums to vibrate freely for maximum sustain and resonance while providing absolute and wobble-free performance.

Cymbals sold separately.

      Comments about Pearl Export Standard 5-Piece Drum Set with Hardware:

      I started playing professionally in the late 80's but quit in 1994. Fast forward thru life and becoming a Marine. A buddy of mine bought this set for me in 2006 as a welcome-back-from-Iraq gift. I started practicing and got the bug again. I've played well over 100 gigs with this kit, mostly funk, R&B, classic rock and country. It has never let me down sound wise. I get complements on the sound all the time. When experienced drummers come up to check it out during breaks they're surprised it's a starter set.
      I've upgraded to sturdier cymbal and hi-hat stands and had to replace one of the bass drum spurs. But after what I'm guessing is about 500 set up/tear downs for practicies, jam sessions, gigs, etc, I'm not complaining. On the bass drum I've put Remo Heavy FiberSkyn on the batter side and the Ebony Resonant with built in Kick Port. That bass drum just flat out thumps now. Due to a logistics snafu, Bobby "Ringo" Taylor from Beatle Majesty played my kit for their latest 4th of July gig and he said it sounded great.
      For the money, a great kit. Nuff said.

        Comments about Pearl Export Standard 5-Piece Drum Set with Hardware:

        The tom's singing tone and resonance. The snare drum's crack. The bass bass drum's low end. These are all factors that make up this drum kit. I personally do not own this drum set. My school does. I was kinda skeptical when I first saw it, because I want a PDP drum set, Concept Maple in particular, but when I first got on it, it sounded great. The 6-ply toms have a balanced tone and for my school, we play jazz (I play metal in my own time), and the poplar and mahogany have a good warm sound, so it is great for jazz. The snare drum has a nice crack, and sounds good open (the other percussionists think it sounds better dampened, but honestly it sounds better wide open), and the rim shots on it sound phenomenal, if you hit it just right. The bass drum has a lot of nice low end, even with a tiny bit of dampening. The hardware that comes with it is also just as good as the drums. The P-930 Demonator single pedal that comes with the drum set is a single chain drive, but it is SUPER sensitive and responsive, and comes with a 2 way beater. The stands are good and durable, including the snare drum stand. The only issue I have is the Hi Hat stand. It is not flimsy, not unresponsive, but when I'm free styling, I always set the hi hat stand in the what I call "Rock" setting. That is when the 2 hi hat cymbals are touching, but loose enough to have a "sloshy" sound. I will occasionally put the pedal down to get a tight hi hat sound, but it will "auto-adjust" itself and go into the standard hi hat position when I pull the pedal back up. In other words, the "Standard" hi hat position is when the hats are NOT touching. I might soon learn to fix it, or the stand has something wrong with it. Either way, it's not to big of a deal. But if your considering buying this kit, do not hesitate. It is well worth the money. (P.S. I will soon ad an image)

          Comments about Pearl Export Standard 5-Piece Drum Set with Hardware:

          This is my 3rd acoustic kit over the last 25 years and my first one that I've bought completely new. I got the smokey chrome finish and it looks amazing. I've been playing guitar for thirty years but have never tuned drums, but thanks to a good ear for pitch and resonance, and some help from YouTube, I was able to tune this things to sound amazing. They were pretty well tuned right out of the box but needed just a little tweaking. The hardware pack is really solid, especially the kick pedal. I added a Meinl HCS cymbal pack and it really sounds nice. Everything was well packed and easy to put together. Really solid and a joy to play!

            Comments about Pearl Export Standard 5-Piece Drum Set with Hardware:

            I've owned this series for over 10 years. It has been through thick and thin as far as styles, playing, gigging, and recording. I've never been happier with my drums and I'm so glad to have made this purchase as my first and only drum kit. Whether I've used Remo and Evans drumheads on this kit, it has always sounded great. It's great that they have gone down in price over the years and become even more affordable for those who wish to have a great kit. Though not professional grade, I've had many compliments when playing live and during some recording sessions. The hardware is by the far the best I've seen. I've played with different kits through other circumstances, and I think this hardware is the most versatile and hard working hardware. It lasts. This is the drumkit you want. No questions about it.

                      This kit is great for a first kit. It has a great versatile sound that will suit any drummer well. Pearl makes a great product and this kit is an example of that. I've swapped out the snare with the Chad Smith signature and have meinl cymbals with this kit. I have no complaints about the kit.
