The original Vision formula, now in a jaw-dropping burl walnut fade finish.

The Pearl VSX825 Artisan II 5-Piece Shell Pack showcases the luxurious Artisan II Burl Walnut Fade finish using Pearl's exclusive Digital Grain Transfer technology. Pearl's Vision VSX drum shell packs offer birch-ply shell composition, built using Pearl's Superior Shell Technology. The 6-ply shell rack toms and 8-ply floor toms and kick drums give this kit incredible balanced sound”perfect for all musical styles and all drummers.

The Pearl Artisan shell pack is based on the original Vision drum formula and includes a 22" x 18" kick, 10" x 8" and 12" x 9" rack toms, 16" x 16" floor tom, and 14" x 5-1/2" snare drum, as well as Unilock tom arms. The 5-piece Pearl drum kit also includes all necessary mounting hardware. Hardware, cymbals, and drum throne sold separately.

Pearl Vision VSX drums boast blended birch shells with variable 6/8-ply shell technology. Lower frequencies require greater energy to match the high frequencies and projection produced by smaller drums. Vision's combination of 6-ply rack toms and an 8-ply floor tom and kick drum address this problem by delivering dynamically balanced sound.

Pearl Optimized Drum Shell Configuration
The same spirit of innovation seen in the award-winning Pearl Reference Series drums is now available in the Vision Series. Every component in your drum kit is optimized to respond to its full potential within its frequency range. This is achieved through the use of premium wood composition and shell thickness via strategic variance in the type and amount of plies. This sonically advanced recipe of strategically arranged plies of premium wood maximizes frequency response in every component. As with all Pearl drums, each shell is formed with Pearl's legendary SST construction process using extreme heat, precision-cut scarf joints, Pearl's proprietary Acoustiglue, and over 1000lb. of hydraulic pressure to create the ultimate acoustic air chamber.

100% Pearl quality
Constructed in Pearl's state-of-the-art facility, no components are out-sourced, ensuring that every detail of this drum kit represents the high level of quality that you expect when buying a Pearl drum kit.

Pearl SensiTone snare
Pearl's legendary SensiTone snare drums have been a top choice of discerning drummers for years. As the name implies, these Pearl drums provide extreme sensitivity combined with amazing tone and clarity. The 5-1/2" steel shell projects extreme volume with articulate response for dynamic power and cut.

Comments about Pearl VSX825 Artisan II 5 Piece Shell Pack:

I picked these drums up for two reason, number on being that I am a Pearl fan boy, number two being that the finish on these drums are breath takeing. Now lets get to the specs on these bad boys.Pros: The toms sound great!! Punchy, focused, minimal overtones, and even with the Pearl Protone heads they sound this way, throw some Evens G2's on the bottom with G1's on the top, and you will have a sound quality that rivals kits that are 1000$ more expensive. PLUS, the opti mount knock offs are a nice professional looking touch for your toms. And last but not least the Sensitone snare drum, it really has one good range, which is having it tuned nice and tight, but honestly, its a steel snare drum, so to the people complaining it doesn't have a wide tuning range...its a steel snare drum, don't try to get a deep maple tone out of it, its meant to be a bright and focused CRACK.Cons: It doesn't really have any worth mentioning to be honest, Just like with any kit in this price range, you are going to want to replace the stock heads, that's just common sense. I am currently using a Superkick 2 with the Aquarian Resonant head on the bass, and while very punchy and focused, it is not a very loud bass drum, I need to experiment a little more of course, and this only poses an issue to some people, not really me. BOTTOM LINE: These drums look gorgeous, sound great, and of course, are Pearl, which automatically makes them better :] Get these now!!!

This is a sweet set and looks really cool with the color swirls. The snare sounds great, nice pop. The other heads sound good, but need to get new heads, Evans for sure. Well worth the price
