Redesigned low-mass lugs, Masterworks-style rubber gaskets and OptiMount tom mounts allow enhanced sustain and rich, even tones. 2.3mm SuperHoop II rims facilitate accurate tuning and ensure tonal clarity. 2-ply heads come standard on the Pearl toms for deep, controlled sound.

Top Quality Without The Price

By Musicoam

from Napa, CA

I got my fusion-sized kit in 2003, when it was still SRX. The fact that SMX had Masters features sold me right there. The matching snare was out of stock at Guitar Center, but they suggested the Chad Smith signature, which blew me away when I played it. I immediately replaced the ProTones with Remo Clear Emperors, but I'm sure the ProTones would've still sounded great. The hardware (kick legs, lugs) is solid but still light, and the finish always gets window-lickers and mouth-breathers going. It still sounds incredible four years later! If you're semi-pro, but feel you're above Export, get SMX!

Best I have ever owned.

By PearlsForLife

from Pittsburgh, PA

these are the best drums for the money period. the toms are small so they produce a very crisp sound, and the bass drum thumps like no other.if you are looking for any drum set, do yourself a favor and get these top quality, briliantly finished, drums. they are a steal for the money


buy it

By Anonymous

from Undisclosed

I own this kit...I can't tell you how many compliments I've gotten on its sound through the PA system OR accoustically. It's amazing. take your time tuning it because you won't be disappointed.


Best maple kit

By audibleandrew

from Hickman, NE

This is the best maple drum kit on the entire market that you can buy without getting a pearl masters kit or something else thats way more expensive. Slap some evans heads on these babies and you'll never EVER look back.


Awesome Drums!

By DanJep

from Rancho Cucamonga, Ca

I shopped around for a long time looking for the best sound when I stumbled across the pearl session drums. These drums have such a sweet warm sound with a beautiful line of colors; this was by far the best percussion purchase I have made!

Beautiful Maple Sound!

By Hero1289

This drumset is amazing! I bought a 6-piece shell pack with an 8" and a snare, and if you tune these drums just right, they have a near perfect maple sound. The best maple sound I have ever heard comes from these drums! Along with a very accentic punch, they have a very warm jazzy sound, and can be used for anything from death metal to the quietest music.


Proffesional Set

By Kbster2001

See all my reviews

I've been looking and playing on sets for several years now and none, in this price range, have come close to the quality and sonic purity the session series offers. The six ply maple provides warmth with a smooth sustain that has enough power to be heard, yet not too much punch for jazz or latin playing. Thank you Pearl and Musicians Friend for offering such a great set at an even better price.
