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
  • 7” x 10” tom
  • 8” x 12” 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.
