Pearl has a reputation for putting out some stellar birch drums. The Masters BCX Series continues to uphold and further push this reputation.

The Masters BCX series features a 6-ply, 100% premium birch shell which provides increased power and projection as well as a warm, full-bodied sound with great sensitivity. Birch drums have become a favorite amongst players and engineers alike due to their naturally EQ'd sound.
This particular kit includes 8”x10” and 9”x12” toms, a 16”x16” floor tom, and a 18”x22” bass drum. Again, this is a shell set and does not include a snare, cymbals, hardware, or tom mounts. The most common way to mount the toms is to use two tom arms and two clamps. The Pearl TH900S short tom arm and Pearl AX20 clamp would be ideal for this kind of set up. A drum rack would also do the trick. For this kit, we'd recommend the PEARL Icon DR-501 straight drum rack or the DR-501C curved front bar drum rack. You can find these items listed in our "Things You'll Need" section below.

These drums are equipped with Pearl's signature MasterCast Hoops. These are some of the finest die cast hoops on the market today. They are the perfect blend of thickness and mass and help improve the depth, clarity and focus of the drums. The OptiMount Suspension System attaches to the tension rods, and provides the ultimate in stability while at the same time allowing the drum to resonate fully, powerfully and without restriction. The low-mass Masters Bridge Lugs also allow the drums to resonate freely while give these drums that distinctive Pearl look. As if all of this wasn't enough, these drums come stock with Remo heads for the best possible sound right out of the box.

Pearl Birch Masters Review

Comments about Pearl Masters BCX 4-Piece Standard Shell Set:

Pearl Drums were all I ever wanted to play, and I got my first new Export kit as a teenager (which I still have). Later as a professional touring drummer, I got a Pearl Masters series kit (which I also still have), and I opted for Birch because I like the higher end attack I get from the toms, which for me compliments the loud guitar and bass amps I have to compete with when doing rock gigs. And while I used to prefer a maple kick, I've found a birch kick with an Evans EMad head and no muffling sounds like THUNDER. While on tour, every front of house engineer and sound man loved my kit...and trust me, sound guys don't care, if they don't like something, THEY WILL TELL YOU. The sound of birch Masters drums translates through a microphone, which not all drums do (that's why the sound guys loved them). Highly recommend for professional players or those who want to be.
