OVERVIEW

Drums offering full-size play and tone in a compact footprint.

At home on the street or on stage, Pearl’s Midtown Kit is vital for the gigging drummer in the metropolitan groove. These drums are built on a foundation of 6-ply, 7.5mm poplar shells for softer mids and highs and a full low end.

The drum hardware offers 1.6 mm triple-flange hoops for crisp rimshots, Pearl OptiLoc suspension for enhanced tom resonance and a pedal lift for optimal kick beater positioning. Matching wood hoops gives the kick drum a classic contrast against the drum wrap. The drums are also fitted with Remo heads.

The Midtown's compact size makes it ideal for tight spaces, and quickly breaks down into an optional two gig bag set for quick transport.
This portable shell pack costs less than many snare drums.

Cymbals and hardware sold separately.

Comments about Pearl Midtown Series 4-Piece Shell Pack:

This little kit packs a great punch! Small footprint. Small price tag. Big sound!
I was a little skeptical when buying, but this little kit has a relatively wide spectrum for such small drums. Nice punchy bass. A great snappy snare. And widely tuneable toms that compliment each other well.
If you're gigging night after night in small clubs, this kit will save you loads of time and energy. Sets up in minutes. And sounds great.
If i had to pick out a drawback, it would be the wrapped finish. Though it does look great,
(Mine is black gold sparkle) the wrapped finish means these drums can't fare well in a direct sunlight situation. (Ex. Beach gig, street performance). Wrapped drums tend to warp in the sunlight. Though I understand there was a price bracket Pearl was trying to compete with, but I would've loved to see a laquered version, even if it was a little bit more money.

    Comments about Pearl Midtown Series 4-Piece Shell Pack:

    I gig with these all the time and they do it for me and people like the big sound from such a small kit and i'm not a hard hitter at all.

    Easy to tune for starters and build quality is OK for the price.

    If you buy the midtown pearl bags from sweatwater you can carry the whole drum set in two bags so transport is easy.

    All in all is a great kit.

        Comments about Pearl Midtown Series 4-Piece Shell Pack:

        I was looking for a smaller kit for in my basement and playing smaller gigs, and this is a perfect fit! Lightweight, sounds great, and the heads that come with the shell pack are decent. I will eventually replace the heads with something more durable and suited to my playing, but in the meantime, they are great!

          Comments about Pearl Midtown Series 4-Piece Shell Pack:

          Black finish is very nice.
          Stock heads sound pretty good. I replaced, but didn't really have too.
          Worst part is where your pedal connects to the kick as, depending on what kick pedal you use, the chain may hit the carved out hoop. I'd say the heavier DW chains will be too thick; but maybe the Pearl pedals or those with straps will be ok.
