The Pearl Export shells are pretty much everything a beginner to intermediate players need. I have played on beginner level Tamas and PDP and these drums blew those away. I used them for 2 years and barely ever had any problems with the set. They sound amazing, offer good hardware packages and are good looking too. I had a black set of the Exports and I had a 12”, 13” and 16” tom with a 14” snare and 20” kick, with Evans and Remo heads on the drums. The toms sound deep and are flexible to nearly any style of tuning. I added a Piccolo snare to my set up eventually just to add a little bit of depth to the other snare, but that is not necessary. Under fine tuning, these drums can be gigged on or recorded decently easy. These shells are very good, in fact, a drum tech at a show we played at said that I would never need to upgrade, but only want to. I upgraded over time, but only because I wanted an all maple set, and I wanted to play Gretsch. These drums can take a beating without chipping or scatching, and the hardware is built very sturdy, for the heavy hitting players. The only problem I ever really had was that the screws holding the tom arm and brackets in came out, but that was no big deal. I would definitely suggest getting these drums over the Tama and PDP, but other companies may have something along the lines of these. Gretsch starting kits are very good, also Mapex is also very good if you like the looks of those more, but these drums will serve you just fine. I would definitely make the decision to buy these again over other entry level sets. Pearl is a good manufacturer of drum equipment, so it isn’t like First Act stuff.

I'm not using the drumkit for a few years. This was my first drumkit, I had chosen for her look at the base (black, black hardware). My setup was: 22x18 (2) 20x18 and (2) thereafter, 14x5.5,8x8,10x8,12x9,13x10,14x14,16x16, I also had the 14x12 and 18x16. In terms of build quality is decent for an entry-level, including the hi-hat foot and clear and feet cymbal drum. However the kick pedal and the tom ties are not what there is of better. The origination skins are changing from the beginning because they sound really bad (worse than Sonor backgrounds on my current Sonor), especially on the tom 8 "(that does not already have easy to adjust). The big sound pretty good but lack the depth of her for me. Snare can sound very good, with good skin. toms 13x10 and 14x12 them sound really good, 10 and 12 will require fine-tuning, with good skin. 3 The low toms (14x14, 16x16 and 18x16 on) are also honest, 18 sounds "big" with a preference for the 14 for me. Regarding aesthetic finish, black is beautiful, yes, but it quickly take the dust The black hardware is also beautiful but very fragile, scratches will soon arrive and will be immediately. Value for money, have the average of other brands, however for the same price, I find that my Sonor Essential Force sounds much better, but with a much less effective than those of Pearl hardware.

If, like me, you are looking for first prize and a drumkit you have left in the short list, the Sonor Force 507, the Q5044 Mapex, Yamaha and Pearl Export Gigmaker 825, then look no further. After listing all the items and read everything that existed on these batteries, I opted for the Pearl. I just receive it and frankly for € 530 including postage in Musicstore is really a killer. What really decided me was the quality of the hardware that went far beyond the competition and there There's really nothing to say! All feet are huge! Foot HH and BD-chain (the foot of impressive HH) with adjustable tension springs, memory settings (locking collars) and beat two surfaces (plastic and felt). For drums, it's 6-ply poplar, it is well done and the sound is there, once the voltage settings made skins (see this great site for the settings done by Michel Bontemps hello I t'au pass my little jean-mimi (remember "Sharon Evans") http://pagesperso-orange.fr/michel.bontemps/ ). Provide a helping cutter in the snare drum with no hole and delivered a feather pillow for a sound slap. Also provide a Kleenex, not to cry in front of the thresher, stammering, "Oh! Qu'c'est too damn how the ball c'te checkout! "But for untimely killer harmonics generated by the drum head of the DS. Once all the adjustments made, it tears his race! The only point that sin (and again) is that the tom is mounted on three rods as usual but on the feet of a cymbal. But hey, when did you see the section of the tube There's really no worry. Besides all the toms are suspended and are not drilled, which is rather better and not found on any competitor. Last thing, it is the export model (2006/2007), which is no longer but can still be found in Musicstore and not the new model Forum took over but when the hardware has increased to the range lower.
I recall that I bought without listening, with the advice of friends and other vendors and I do not really regret my purchase, but for those who have time and especially the mags that have the stuff (not the case in the Aude) they try it is always better! But there's a good chance they will come to the Pearl! In addition to Chad Smith, who is one of my favorite drummers, played on what, huh?
After several weeks of use, it is true that the snare is a must in this area, although with the right setting you come to the ring (skin patch skin 70 hits with 82 Tama TW100). Anyway good CC costs between 250 and 500 euros then! In addition I have not changed the original skin, I inform you as soon as I put "Remo" because I think the difference will be huge. For the rest still happy!
Well, I changed to a Remo CS Anbassador and frankly the difference is not obvious and I always many harmonics, while the skin is so-called "Controlled sound"
Like what, you're beautiful just change what you want on the bottom of a CC line, you'll never have a killing! But hey! The full set is worth the price of a great snare drum! So?

If, like me, you want a drumkit first prize and you quil remains short list, the Sonor Force 507, the Q5044 Mapex, Yamaha and Pearl Export Gigmaker 825, then look no further. APRS list have all entirety and read everything that existed on these batteries, jai opt for the Pearl. I just receive it and frankly for 530 including postage in Musicstore (without cymbals), cest really killing. What really DCID EST mavait the quality of the hardware that Exceeds by far the competition and there is really nothing to say! All feet are standards! Foot HH and BD chain (HH impressive on the foot) with SETTING THE tension springs, memory of rglage (locking collars) and beat two surfaces (plastic and felt). For fts, cest of 6-ply poplar, cest well done and the sound is once SETTING THE effectus skin tension (see this site is great for rglages by Michel Bontemps tau hello I pass my little jean-mimi (remember Sharon Evans) http://pagesperso-orange.fr/michel.bontemps/ ). Prvoir cutter a shot in the snare drum book without a hole and feather pillow for a sound slap. Prvoir also a Kleenex, not to cry in front of the thresher, stammering Oh! How fucking qucest dla ball too cte checkout! But for killer harmonics gnres ups by hitting the skin of the SD. Once all the facts rglages, adchire race! The only point that PCHE (and again) that the floor tom cest nest of three stems not fix as usual but on the feet of a cymbal. But good job when given the section of the tube is not really dsoucis. Dailleurs all toms are suspended and are not drilled, which is better and lon plutt not found on any competitor. Dernire thing, well MODEL Export EST (2006/2007), which is no longer but still lon Musicstore and not in the new MODEL Forum which took over but o the hardware is the range infrieure pass.
I recall that jai purchased without cost, with the advice of friends and other vendors and I do not really regret my purchase, but for those who have time and especially the mags that have the stuff (not the case in laude) cest quil try always better! But there will quil strong bet on the Pearl! In addition to Chad Smith, who is one of my drummers prfrs, played on what, huh?

Hello
I played an export for over 15 years. I bought it new in 1990. At that time ISS suspension point, the toms were held by the articulated arms that had to plug into the bass drum. The standart dimmensions me very well suited (22/12/13/16).
I have always found the toms were easy to give especially pinstripe skins. Evans Genera with the skins is much more subtle .... The floor tom is more difficult if one is looking for a bass sound and powerful. In fact to get a good sustain "Boowa" you have to play on a surface too "reflective" not too hard if the resonant does not vibrate well and tom does not ring. It is better to play on a carpet.
The bass drum is too childish to be paid. For a big sound should relax the maximum resonant drum head and, with just a small cushion evans style muffler that supports a little on the drum head. And here's the big bass sound that sends.
For the snare, that's another story. Now they are made of wood but I think at the time pffff what a pain. difficult to adjust it just sounds high (very high volume). Forget the ghosts beautiful pianissimo notes and effects.
The original equipment was simple base but even after thousands of miles and hundreds of concert he still holds the shape.

Overall this is a good mid-range bottom, or a good amateur model. Much better than the yamaha tama rockstar or at the time. The rhodoid has passed away relatively quickly. I had to take off, sanding and varnishing was. Guaranteed effect, custom drumkit pretty to watch.

I would recommend this choice to people who want to play regularly and looking for a model rather rock or hard rock. For jazz ride while Evans Genera G1. It is more open and singing the pinstripe.

One thing is certain: this model is extremely robust!

Hi everybody. So I had this drumkit nol (that is - say 1 month ago) and I'm glad trs trs. It is vrment it! The sound is like the drum solo of Tony Royster as small. But the skins are my dsception pearl (normal), but els are not read with rmo. But this does not change much. Also I have the REU PDAL p p-120 which is, I think, a superb PDAL for his pousss, but not for her sweet little, but it can still me do, but say it is not made expr. Then I stand H-820W which, a diffrence in the p-120 p, can be very useful for playing all kinds of styles. Stands for the cymbals, they are normal, trs good and robust.
Bred I highly recommend this drumkit, even when knowing that it is not luxury, but when even;)
