About Delivery

To commemorate the anniversary of their 75th year, Pearl has produced a limited number of beautiful President shell sets inspired by the classic line from the ‘60s. First released in 1966, the original President series offered an exciting new sound and had an immensely stylish look - properties that have been lovingly recreated for this exciting throwback kit.

Six ply layers of Lauan wood is used to obtain the President Deluxe’s unmistakable sound. Often unfairly labelled as a cheaper tonewood, you might be surprised to find that carefully selected Lauan has some amazing properties that, when crafted by the hands of master drum-smiths like Pearl, produce a distinctive and highly sought-after vintage sound. These Lauan shells are of the highest standard and produce a warm fundamental sound and an immersive response. Their medium-short decay helps to create the vintage-style vibe and allows these drums to pop in a mix without ever being overbearing. This kit comes in a 3-piece fusion configuration - a 12 x 8” tom, 14 x 14” floor tom and a 20 x 14” bass drum. The shallow depth of the drums help with that vintage-style fall-off but still have a full-bodied presence. This is thanks to their “naked”, undrilled shells; the bass drum and tom feature no brackets and are perfectly intact for the best possible tone. This means that the rack tom must be either affixed to your tom arm via a Pearl ISS mount or mounted on a snare stand (both sold separately). The latter option is very in keeping with the look of the era.

On the subject of looks, you’ll not be disappointed. The President Deluxe boasts an understated beauty and some lovely features that enhance its vintage aesthetic. Original style Battleship lugs and heritage gullwing bass drum spurs paint a perfect old-school picture, and an Ocean Ripple Wrap finish is representative of the time. Each drum also features an internal tone muffler and the bass drum comes with a felt muffling strip - retro or what? 

Pearl is celebrating their 75th year in style, as represented by this beautiful kit. Whether you choose to play or display, the President Deluxe will make a fine addition to your collection.
