Get ready to welcome back the bestselling drum kit of all time. That’s right; Pearl is bringing back the Export series. This kit features many of the same design aspects that we’ve come to know and love about the exports while still making room for some modern innovations.  The first thing Pearl improved upon with these kits was the shell. Traditionally the export series consisted of Poplar shells; Pearl has revamped these drums by making the shells a mix of Poplar and Asian Mahogany. Poplar/Mahogany shells are not a new idea; many vintage drums are made up from this shell type. Mahogany is known for being warm, fat, and lush with a dark overall fundamental while poplar is known for it’s soft, mellow sound and warm spread. This gives these kits a classic sound that’s still as unique as your playing. This is all possible due to Pearl’s “Super Shell Technology”. This is Pearl’s proprietary shell making process that utilizes extreme heat and pressure help create the perfect shell. In fact, this process was so effective that Pearl offers a limited life time warranty on all of their drums.

Pearl also did quite a number on the hardware as well. The exports feature triple-flange hoops, matching wood bass drum hoops, as well as the all new lug design, and opti-loc mounting system. The new lugs are inspired by the classic look of the original export lugs while bringing something altogether new to the table. These smaller, lower mass lugs create less tension on the surface of the shell. This allows the drums to resonate more freely, creating a truer, more open sound. The opti-loc system makes no contact what so ever with the actual shell. This, much like the new lug design, allows the drum to breathe and be more resonant.

This kit comes in standard sizes. Standard sizes are typically a bit larger than fusion sizes which makes them boomier and better suited for lower tunings. These larger drums are perfect for rock, pop and everything you can shake a stick at. The drum sizes are (depth x diameter)

  • 18” x 22” bass drum
  • 8” x 12” tom
  • 9” x 13” tom
  • 16” x 16” floor tom
  • 5.5” x 14” snare

This set also includes a complete set of hardware including a BC-830 boom stand, C-830 cymbal stand, H830 Demonator Syle hi-hat stand, S-830 snare stand, and a P-930 demonator single bass drum pedal. As if all this wasn't enough, Pearl had to make them drop dead gorgeous as well. These kits are available in a wide variety of different colors including the all new Electric Blue Sparkle.

Pearl 5-piece Export Review

        Comments about Pearl Export 5-Piece Drum Set with Hardware:

        My first new set of drums back in the 80's was a Pearl Export Series, and not only do I still have them, but I use the floor tom as part of my primary recording kit in my home studio. I'm so glad Pearl brought the Export line back, because there's a reason it was the most popular drum set on the planet. Aside from it's affordability, it's a great sounding kit, especially the toms in my opinion (see floor tom comment above, I'm not kidding). There's something about their blend of Poplar and Mahogany in the shells that has both the attack and warmth I want. And Pearl hardware is practically indestructible. Asthetically, they offer much more by way of finish options than ever before, so now the Exports look as great as they sound. I've gone on to own other Pearl drum sets (still have them all) and countless snares, and it all started with that first Export kit 28 years ago. Highly recommend to the enth degree.

          The Pearl Export EXX drum kit, Even though it's priced as an entry-level drum kit, the Pearl Export EXX series features premium Poplar and rich Asian mahogany as the tonewood for the shells that allows your drum kit to project a richer tone. With this great deal no only are you getting an amazing drum set but you are also receiving a jaw dropping hardware setup with the all-new 830 Series Hi Hat Stand, Snare Drum Stand, Boom and Straight Cymbal Stands and the P-930 Demonator Single Bass Pedal. This is an all around Great set for the money.

                The Pearl Export's mahogany blended shells bring out a low round character of the drums. The hardware is sturdy and reliable. This kit is a great beginner kit, or an upgrade for a younger student. But it's quality doesn't limit itself from being a real gigging drum kit. I am a staff reviewer for Sam Ash.

                      The Export kit is great. Plain and simple. Pearl does it right! These drums tune very well and are very comfortable to play. The lifetime warranty on the hardware alone is worth it's weight in gold.You can play out on gigs as well as practice and even record with them! With the right heads, they sound amazing! The price is right!

                        Great kit that comes in lots of cool finishes. Better than just your standard red and black. Poplar and Mahogany mixed shells, which no other company offers on their entry level kits. Comes with pearl 30 hardware. I am a sales associate @ Sam Ash KOP.

                          For years, the Pearl Export was the benchmark for quality, affordable drums. Virtually every drummer has played on one of these either in a lesson room, in school band or maybe as their first kit. And even after Pearl discontinued them, people still sought them out. Well thankfully, Pearl has brought the Export back and made it better than ever! Adding mahogany to the shell now gives the Export a warmth and depth that it never had before. And the colors that Pearl offers are modern, vibrant and very cool. Plus, if that wasn't enough, Pearl is including a complete set of 830 series hardware with the kit! From the basement to the stage, you won't find a better value than the Pearl Export!

All you need is cymbals and you're ready to go! Awesome warranty as well. Limited lifetime to the original owner! Incredible! I'm a sales associate at Sam Ash Music Ontario.

                              This Pearl Export kit is made from a poplar mahogany blend, which helps make these a great overall drum. This would be a great kit to use as an upgrade to a lesser kit. Sure you need to but some cymbals, but you really should invest a decent amount into cymbals. You can change the sound of mid range drums to sound like high end drums with different head, but not cymbals. The added hardware make this a must have.
