Pearl Reference Fusion 22"
Hard to find a review on this famous drumkit ... so I can put in a few words my feelings.
I want to say that, and this is my conviction, Pearl manufactures the toughest batteries in the world, so I will not dwell on the question of fittings, etc. GC peaks. to speak more particularly the sound.
I am the very happy owner of this farm (22/18 16/16 14/11 12 / 9 10 / 8) for over 3 months. I tried many models before taking it. Wishing to acquire an instrument decidedly upscale, my choices were ultimately restricted by the prohibitive price really, so goodbye DW and other GMS. That does not stop me to try these 2 brands and frankly as a GMS glue the face against the wall, distilling a sound has to tears (justifying the same price) as I was disappointed by DW, to scam me (good sound, but nothing compared to a supermarket at the same price). Subsequently I have tried the Tama Starclassic (Bubinga, B / B and maple, the 3 monsters with a lil + for maple), YAMAHA aok custom (fucking potato) FIRST classic maple (very good) gretsch new classic and renown maple ........ and then being the former owner of a PEARL MMX I am redirected to PEARL watching this famous model REFERENCE quite unknown to the public ...... and there it was a monumental pie.
Everything in this drumkit I like, everything. Already her dress (copperfire sparkle, pearl is not the most besides, my style is collector hihihi!), The varnish is beautiful.
But the most bleuffant is the sound of drums. Without wishing to re-explain the particular manufacturing PEARL sought the sound "perfect" for each drum, the type of wood, thickness, number of plies varies depending on the barrel. The sound is as a quality truly amazing. For me it's better than TAMA, YAMAHA better than, better than PDP, DW better than (but less than GMS ). Already the big box of 22/18 is a cannonball. the attack and the pitch is huge weekend in beautiful bass part (thank you mahogany). the floor tom 16 "sounds like a 18" suspended tom and 14 "as a 16"! tom 12 "and most" pure "line since it was a choice of maple. a marvel of projection and a beautiful grain. but my favorite goes tom 10" (birch and maple) . A missile! And best of all it is generally consistent between the drums. At the time I'm separated from my MMX because I blamed him this big flaw of inconsistency between the drums and it was really boring. And yes my drumkit was not tuned! No worries here. Each drum is an instrument to the full record is always optimal.
The only negative criticism on the weight of the barrels. Well is it a bad thing? = heavy duty, but that's no lie kick ass weighs the weight of death. Me I'm struggling a bit but had to find a negative !
The value for money of this instrument is very good, I find its price in any case not only justified but very intelligent. € 500 Below is the MMX, the STARCLASSIC and above ..... bin nothing so if you have or gms but dw + 1500 € minimum. This drumkit does not (again!!) Competition (not from con pearl).
The STARCLASSIC, MMX (MMP now) and all other marks are very, very good drumkit and must recognize their undoubted quality, but there is the Ratchet and above. After all, when you ask to try a drumkit that gives you not granted at all, and it sounds better than dw starclassic and right side, I tell ya bin not foto!
