Pearl would like to reintroduce you to the best-selling drum set of all time. The Export is back and this time with a stunning lacquer finish.

The Pearl Export is one of the most popular drum sets of all time, and for good reason. The Export manages to combine quality craftsmanship with ground breaking affordability to give drummers what they really want, an outstanding kit that won't break the bank. Pearl continues to deliver with these new Exports, which feature some major upgrades compared to it's predecessor.

Let’s face it, most entry-level drum sets have a bland sound with no distinguishing features. That's not the case with the Pearl Export. The master builders at Pearl wanted to give this kit a unique voice and tonal quality, not unlike their higher end drums. The new Export series puts sound first by blending Poplar with Asian Mahogany for an incredibly rich, full-bodied tone. The drums are incredibly warm and resonant with a lush sound that is simply to die for. To create this one of a kind shell, Pearl utilizes their legendary SST building techniques used to craft their flagship kits. The SST construction process uses extreme heat, precision-cut scarf joints, proprietary Acoustiglue, and over 1000lbs of hydraulic pressure to create the ultimate acoustic air chamber. Pearl believes in this process so much that all of their shells feature a limited lifetime warranty. This particular kit features

  • 18" x 22" Bass Drum
  • 7" x 10" Tom
  • 8" x 12" Tom
  • 16" x 16" Floor Tom
  • 5.5" x 14" Snare Drum

Pearl puts even further emphasis on their “sound first” philosophy with this kit's hardware. First off, let's discuss the new lugs that were specifically designed for the Export. These things were designed with sound-enhancement in mind. Designed for minimal shell interaction, these low mass lugs have a small footprint which helps improve resonance and sustain. They have a bold look that is both modern and nostalgic as they are a nod to the previous Export lugs.

These drums also feature Pearl's new Opti-Loc Mounting System which features a triangular design with two tension rod attachment points and another through one of the drum’s two air vents. Rubber isolators at all connection points allow the drums to vibrate freely for maximum sustain and resonance while providing an absolutely wobble-free performance.

These drums also feature triple-flange hoops for a warm, resonant sound with a lively response. The bass drum features matching wood hoops for enhanced tone, projection, and a look that simply can't be beat. The matching snare drum features a SR-700 Strainer for precise and accurate snare tension that is unbelievably stable. This guarantees that the snares will not loosen over extended periods of play. These drums also come equipped with Remo heads for the best possible sound, right out of the box.

As if all of this wasn't enough, this kit also comes with a complete set of hardware. This includes two TH70I tom arms, BC-830 boom cymbal stand, C-830 cymbal stand, H-830 demon style hi-hat stand, S-830 snare stand, and P-930 Demonator bass drum pedal.

However, this kit does not include cymbals, stick, or a throne. If you need any of these items, please visit the "Things You'll Need Section"

Pearl Export Review

Comments about Pearl Export EXL 5-Piece Drum Set w/ 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.
