About Delivery

To commemorate having reached the milestone of three-quarters of a century in the business, Pearl has produced a limited number of beautiful President shell sets inspired by their classic model from the ‘60s. First released in 1966, the original President series offered a fresh, new sound and an extremely sleek and stylish look - properties that have been lovingly recreated for this exciting throwback kit.

The President Deluxe’s unmistakable sound comes courtesy of six ply layers of Lauan wood. Lauan has often been unfairly categorised as a cheaper tonewood, but you might be surprised to find that in the right hands, carefully selected Lauan possesses some amazing properties that produce a distinctive and highly sought-after vintage sound. The Lauan used to create the President Deluxe’s shells is of the highest standard and produces a warm fundamental sound with an immersive response. The drums have a medium-short decay that helps to create just the right amount of vintage vibe and allows these drums to pop in a mix without ever being overbearing. This kit comes in a 3-piece rock configuration - a 13 x 9” tom, 16 x 16” floor tom and a 22 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 a Desert 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.
