That's right Pearl has brought back the best selling kit of all time! These new exports feature some modern updates that are sure to make them even more popular than ever before!

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 is a fusion configuration. Fusion sizes are typically smaller than most other kits. These smaller sizes help make the drums a little punchier with a sharper definition and increased attack. The drum sizes are (depth x diameter)

-18” x 20” bass drum
-7” x 10” tom
-8” x 12” tom
-14” x 14” 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.

              This Pearl Export is an excellent option for someone who is jamming on a budget! The kit has a very solid sound with a hint of warmth in the tones that allows it to blend well in a wide variety of playing styles! Additionally, the kit is relatively compact, which makes it great for gigging on the go! The hardware included is the Pearl-quality goodstuff, easy to use and extremely durable. For anyone looking for a great sounding kit with great value, this is the obvious way to go!!!

                Comments about Pearl Export 5-Piece Fusion Shell Set w/ Hardware:

                This is a great 2nd drum kit that is primarily aimed at the drummer who received a first set of inexpensive drums, perhaps an off brand, has decided they do in fact love playing drums, and are ready to upgrade to a set of real drums.

                This drummer will have already acquired some good sounding cymbals, perhaps some ZBTs, B8's or MCS cymbals to compliment their off brand drum shells.

                In this case, the drummer would simply swap the shells and hardware and keep their cymbals.

                The pearl drums in this kit sound big and hit hard with very short sustain that make them great for straight ahead rock or metal, but probably not the best choice for jazz. The pearl hardware comes with Pearl's lifetime warranty which should appeal to any entry level drummer looking for a long term hardware option.

                  You or your young drummer has been practicing hard and is ready for the stage. Trade in the starter kit.This is the perfect "step up" kit. Buy these shells and pick up a sweet cymbal/ hardware pack. You will rock the stage with this shell pack. I am a Sales Associate @ Sam Ash Sarasota

                    There's a reason this set is the best selling set of all time. It's a no-frills, great sounding kit with all the hardware you need to get started. Just add some cymbols, and you've got a completely professional drum kit. You can pay more for a kit, but the differences aren't likely to be obvious to any non-drummer.
