When it comes to design, this Pearl Reference Shell Pack is one of the best. Whereas traditionally a kit will have the same shell configuration throughout the kit, on the Pearl Reference, each drum has a slightly different design which lends itself particularly well for that drum. The result is a drum kit like no other.

When it comes to design, this Pearl Reference Shell Pack is one of the best. Whereas traditionally a kit will have the same shell configuration throughout the kit, on the Pearl Reference, each drum has a slightly different design which lends itself particularly well for that drum. The result is a drum kit like no other.

Three tonewoods have been chosen for this kit; Maple, Birch and African Mahogany. These woods have been chosen as their differing characteristics compliment each other very well, allowing Peal to design carefully every drum. The African Mahogany is a deeper tonewood with a punchy attack, the Birch is even in tone and has a wide dynamic range which responds brilliantly to all articulations, and the Maple offers a slight boost in the higher frequencies. The bass drum is crafted from 2 thin even plies of Maple and 6 plies of Mahogany, which sounds big and bassy and yet brilliantly precise. The floor tom uses the same design for the same reason, offering a deep response when played. The 12” tom is all Maple, 6 plies, whereas the 10” tom uses 4 plies of Maple and 2 plies of Birch for precision and rich top end. Each drum, therefore, works flawlessly together to create a strong and uniform voice. Furthermore, the bearing edges used throughout the kit are slightly different. The bass drum and floor tom use fully rounded bearing edges, and the toms use 45-degree bearing edges. With all of this crafted using Pearl’s Superior Shell Technology, and the shells being formed precisely under 1000 PSI of hydraulic pressure, the tone throughout this kit really is flawless.

The hardware used is, of course, of equal quality. Even the lugs are carefully designed so to allow the precisely crafted shells to resonate freely and are also designed in such a way to prevent any lateral pressure on the hoops. The floor tom legs use Pearl’s air suspension rubber tips that stop any premature decay on the tone, and the bass drum claw hooks offer total stability and rattle-free performance. The toms sit on Pearl’s Optimount Suspension System, which holds the toms with rubber hoops at the tuning bolts, so that there is no contact with the shells, and so that the tom shells can fully be heard.

Finished in a very stylish Purple Craze Lacquer, this kit really has it all. It looks amazing, it sounds amazing, and it is wholly reliable. This really is an outstanding kit, and you are sure to love it.
