Introducing the best selling drumset of all time... Export Series returns.

Export Series now incorporates Pearls S.S.T. Superior Shell Technology, Opti-Loc tom mounts, all-new 830 Series Hardware with a P-930 Pedal, and a choice of five amazing stocking finishes.

Further emphasizing Pearls sound first philosophy are the new lugs specifically designed for Export with sound-enhancement in mind. Designed for minimal shell interaction, they have a small footprint and low-mass for maximum resonance and sustain. Their bold look is modern but with a nod to lugs from Pearls past.

Export rack toms are equipped with Pearls new Opti-Loc Mounting System that features a triangular design with two tension rod attachment points and another through one of the drums two air vents. Rubber isolators at all connection points allow the drums to vibrate freely for maximum sustain and resonance while providing absolute and wobble-free performance.

Lets face it, most entry-level drum sets are plain vanilla with no regard to sound. But not Export. Taking its cue from Pearls award-winning Reference Series, the new Export puts sound first by blending premium Poplar and rich Asian Mahogany for an incredibly lush and full-bodied tone. Experience the new reference standard in its classexperience Export!

Pearls Export Series offers a sonically advanced recipe of strategically arranged plies of premium wood to maximize frequency response of every component. As with all Pearl drums, each shell is formed from our legendary SST construction process that uses extreme heat, Precision-cut scarf joints, our proprietary Acoustiglue and over 1000lbs of hydraulic pressure to create the ultimate acoustic air chamber.

Closest StoreWinnipeg (Pembina Hwy.), Manitoba
I bought this kit as a kit that I wouldn't have to run out and upgrade right away once I gained some momentum in my playing. As a new drummer, I was looking for quality on a bit of a budget. Pearl is a well known brand that stands behind their products and this kit is a great starter kit. Like I said previously, I'm a new drummer so I didn't have anything when it came to drums. This kit comes with everything you could ask for to start out with. The wood is pretty good, although not the best by any means. They are not a lacquered finish. BUT, I'm OK with that for the price I paid. A couple downsides of this set are as follows. The cymbals are not the greatest out there. But to learn on, they will get the job done. They are better than most entry level kits out there though by far. The throne has issues staying at the height I put it. I weight 220 lbs so maybe it's not rated for that, I'm not sure. But it is annoying when I start playing and the throne starts sliding down to where it's not comfortable to play anymore. Guess I will be buying a new throne. The pedals also are not the highest quality pedals out there either. But once again, to start learning the basics of drumming, they will get the job done. Once I progress, I'll be looking at a better bass kick pedal for sure. Overall, I would say this is one of the better entry/intermediate kits out there, alongside the Tama kits around the same price. For someone looking to upgrade a $500 kit or just getting into drumming like me, this is a solid choice. But if you weight 200lbs or more, I'd suggest getting a better throne.
