With its fibreglass-lined Poplar/Kapur shells and gorgeous Antique Gold finish this vintage-style kit is certain to both look and sound good on any stage.
Please note: This Pearl shell pack does not include cymbals snare or hardware. Unique Tonal Quality Featuring a lining of hand-applied and lacquered fibreglass the drums 7-ply Poplar/Kapur shells deliver a sound distinct from that of any other kit. The Kapur wood produces a soft dark tone with plenty of low end warmth which is complimented by the brighter crisper sound of the Poplar outer layers. Combined with the inner layer of fibreglass the result is a drum with a balanced full-bodied tone and excellent attack and projection. The bass drum features a fully rounded bearing edge which maximises head-to-shell contact to provide the greatest boost in mid to low range frequencies while the toms are cut with a sharp 45-degree bearing edge for a bright resonant tone with strong high end attack. The toms are also mounted on Pearls OptiMount Suspension System a low-contact mounting which increases resonance and sustain allowing the drums to ring out as much as possible. Classic 70s Design Pearl first pioneered its wood/fibreglass drum shells in the late 60s with the design gaining popularity throughout the 70s. This limited production run of modern wood/fibreglass sets pays homage to the classic design available only as Traditional-sized 3 piece shell packs and with a choice of four lacquer finishes specially chosen to echo the style of the original 1970 offering.
