Pearl is known for putting out some of the best birch drums in the world. Revisit the kit that helped put Pearl and Birch on the map with the Session series.

The Session Studio Classic features the same shell composition as the much sought after Session kits of yesteryear.  The blend of Birch and Kapur give these drums that classic "Session sound". They have outstanding projection, a sharp attack, growling lows, and a punchy thud that hits you like a ton of bricks. Really, what more could you ask for? The sizes of these drums are

  • 7"x10" Tom
  • 8"x12" Tom
  • 14"x14" Floor Tom
  • 16"x20" Bass Drum

The Session Studio Classics are finished in the same high-gloss "31 step" lacquer finishes that are featured on their Masters, Reference and Masterworks kits. Pearl certainly didn't skimp out on the hardware either. The toms are equipped with one of Pearl's signature hoops, the SuperHoop II. The SuperHoop II is the perfect blend of strength, weight, and balance to give these drums a full, resonant note while helping keep them in tune longer. 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 RL-10 and RL-20 Session lugs give this kit that distinctive Session look while allowing the shell to breath freely.

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.

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. So whether you're new to the game or you've been around the block a few times, the Session Studio Classic is the kit for you.

    Session Studio Classic without question is the ultimate value in drums. Offering many of the ground-breaking features normally found on drums that cost substantially more. Session Studio Classic is the perfect "Step up" kit for the aspiring musician.The nucleus of the Session Studio Classic sound, warm resonant Kapur surrounded by the brightness of Birch finished with a perfect 45 Degree bearing edge. This timeless combination creates a shell with powerful attack and beautiful tonal decay. Fitting for virtually any style of music or venue. The shells are 6 ply 7.5mm Session Formula Birch/Kapur Shells, Kapur is a very hardwood found in lowland tropical rainforests of Malaysia, Indonesia and South-East Asia which helps deliver strong attack and projection with outstanding lows and punch that you can feel.

      Comments about Pearl Session Studio Classic 4-Piece Fusion Shell Set:

      A pro-level kit for under $1500 is pretty much unheard of, but the Session Studio Classic is an excellent value for the money. Studio, Home or Live, you will have no problem finding a place for these excellent sounding drums.

      Three years on shells and hardware. One year on hi hat cables, wood hoops, marching/educational products, and lacquer finish.
