This kit is unbelievably well designed, and you can hear it. Punchy, resonant and rich, even in the studio where a near-field response is required. With uniquely designed shells for each drum, this kit really sings, and it has a finish to match.

Description

Meticulously Designed

The build of this kit is remarkable. Pearl recognise that ‘all drums are not created equal’, and with that in mind, each drum of this kit has a slightly different composition to serve the role of the drum. The 10” tom is made of 4 plies of Maple and 2 plies of Birch, the 12” out of 6 plies of Maple, the 16” out of 2 plies of Maple and 6 plies of Mahogany, and the 22” kick is crafted of 2 plies of Maple and 6 plies of Mahogany. The logic behind it is simple, the higher toms need to be sharper and brighter, whereas the lower toms and kick need to be darker and deeper. With the custom plies for the different drums, this Pearl Reference Pure kit is optimised for maximum resonance from each drum. The incredibly careful design of this kit doesn’t end there, however. Even the bearing edges themselves have been optimised for the individual drums. The 10” and 12” toms feature 45-degree bearing edges, which offers a cutting attack and significant projection, with a balanced punch. This is while the 16” tom and 22” kick hold full round bearing edges, which provides solid and deep punch by raising the overall contact area of the head to the shell. I will refrain from going into deeper detail about the manufacturing of these drums, but simply put, the Pearl Reference Pure kit is unbelievable.

Perfect Hardware

With a kit this good, Pearl needed hardware to match, with equal attention to detail. The lugs feature a swivel function, unique to Pearl, which allows the head to seat properly without significant adjustment. The key bolts in the bass drum claw hook are recessed so that storage and transportation of the kit are simple and ‘snag-free’. The tom legs even feature the ‘air suspension’ design, which prevents the transfer of vibrations to the floor, maximising resonance.

This kit sounds amazing; rich, deep and certainly resonant. Outstanding on stage, and really alive in the studio, perfect for when a near-field response is required. Not only does it sound good though, but it looks gorgeous. The ultra-high gloss finish is achieved through a 31 step process, and you can see how much care has been given to this kit!
