Pearl proudly introduces the Vision Series, a new generation of drums that continue the Export's spirit and "vision" of providing instruments of the highest quality at prices within easy reach of students of the drumming art.
The Vision Series features birch-ply shells with 6-ply 7.5mm-thick rack toms and 8-ply 10mm-thick floor toms and bass drums. Inspired by Pearl's Masterworks and Reference Series, the thicker floor tom and bass drum shells deliver high-energy power and punch while the thinner rack toms offer incredible sensitivity and tone to give Vision the widest dynamic range with unmatched musicality. Nothing short of Pearl's Reference Series is anywhere close to matching the Vision's sound.
Two-ply ProTone batter heads are standard on toms for super-easy tuning and full, rich sound. Pearl's Perimeter EQ heads give the Vision bass drum great tone with just the right amount of muffling virtually out-of-the-box.
The Vision's newly designed lugs are inspired by the Reference Series and include precision-machined brass swivel nuts with zero play for smooth and pinpoint tuning. The bass drum claws are die cast and feature a rubber lining to protect the beautiful finish on the Vision's all-wood hoops.
Vision bass drums feature Pearl's new BB-300 bridge-style bass bracket for minimum shell contact and maximum resonance. I.S.S. suspension tom holders with Pearl's newly-designed BT-300 tom brackets are standard on Vision rack toms for maximum sustain and projection. TH-900 tom arms are infinitely adjustable for micro-fine tom angles and placement. The Stop-Locks are hinged so they can be reversed while keeping the toms attached. BSP-300 spurs feature a fold-away design for easy set-up and transport, telescopic height adjustment, and spike/rubber tips for slip resistance.
The floor toms feature Pearl's "Reference-inspired" FTB-200 leg brackets with an extra large hinged clamping surface for non-slip security. The matching FTL-200 legs are smooth for easy adjustments and removal and feature Pearl's patented Air Suspension feet for maximum resonance and sustain.
The Vision Series features Pearl's beautifully chrome-plated beaded steel 5-1/2" x 14" SensiTone snare drum with Pearl's SR-900 Dual-Motion strainer that can be converted from side lever action to Gladstone-type front lever action as desired. The SensiTone lives up to its name with super sensitivity and superb tone, projection, and dynamic range.
The VLX features beautiful super high-gloss grain-through lacquer finishes in fade patterns with matching bass drum hoops.
The Vision Series is equipped with 900 Series hardware with features and quality unavailable by others in this class. All 900 Series tripods feature Pearl's parallel Sure-Struts that resist lateral twisting and the inherent squeaks that may result from it for improved stability and super quiet performance in studio applications. The pipe joints share the same "family-look" as Pearl's Advanced Hardware Systems stands and feature a vise-type clamping system for ultra secure height settings. A newly-designed Uni-Lock tilter system is featured on the BC-900 convertible boom/cymbal stand, the C-900 cymbal stand, and S-900 snare stand for infinitely adjustable and pinpoint angling possibilities. The 900 Series stands are all double braced. The P-900 pedal is double-pedal ready and features Pearl's patented PowerShifter function for light, regular, and heavy action, adjustable beater angle, PowerPlate for stability and slip resistance, and DuoBeat twin surface beater for hard or soft attack. The H-900 features direct pull for super-smooth and fleet-action and adjustable spring tension for personalized pedal action.

Truly amazing. The stock heads are actually not bad (Though they aren't very durable) but the quality of the drums is amazing. The finish first off, is beautiful. The snare rings a little bit (With stock heads at least) but the toms are great. As a fun addition the bass drum really sounds like a cannon... anyway, buy this set... NOW
Well a few months ago I was at a music shop around where I live and while looking at the sets they had there I noticed a sweet pearl. While looking it over more carefully I noticed the badge on it with the vision tag. The finish was great (amber fade) and the hardware and snare were so shiny it was like a mirror. So I tapped with just one finger on the bass drum and BOOOOOOOMMMM!! I turned around to the guy working that day and was like "oh my god dude I'm putting this thing on layaway this second! no one else is getting it!!". And about 2 months later I payed it all off and this is an awesome set. Especially for the money too cause my friend has a custom sonor set that he payed about $10,000 for and this sounds and looks every bit as good... except for the fact that his set as about 5 more toms than mine... but none the less this is a great kit and I wouldn't want to buy anything other than pearl now that I have this beauty
I purchased this kit a couple months ago to use as a practice kit. It has now made its way to center stage! The finish was flawless and beautiful (I have the Amber Fade color) and the drums are easy to tune and sound like kits costing twice as much. I like the new lug design and the die-cast bass drum claws are beautifully made with no small detail left out. You won't be disappointed with these drums! I'm soon switching the ISS tom holders for the Optimount system, though, because the drums are really heavy and I think the rims may bend over time. Then, I will be a happy camper!
The first thing I noticed when I got these drums was just how great they looked, I got the ruby fade and they look amazing. The snare alone is worth buy this kit compared to anything anywhere near this price range. It has such a great crack like a steel snare but still can be fined tuned to get the warmth of a wood snare. The bass also has such a great deep end punch. Another thing is how sturdy and well built the hardware is. Buy this drumset, I gaurantee you'll love it.
I have one and I love it. You wont regret it its worth the money and a blast to play.
