Drumsets Session Studio Select
A completely new take on the Full Spectrum Sound, Session Studio Classic captures the performance vibe of Pearl’s original Session Series with fresh, groove-inspiring tone.
For over a quarter century, Pearl’s Session Series drums have yielded some of the most harmonically vibrant recorded drum tones ever captured in the studio environment. Returning with a custom upgrade from the boutique-level Masterworks spectrum, new Session Studio Select drums shift to the classic shell blend that made them an artist favorite, and deliver unparalelled value with a FREE added floor tom.
The Session Studio Select shell is a thin, 5.4mm EvenPly-Six combination of Masters-grade Birch and African Mahogany. The controlled punch of Pearl’s fresh 60-degree bearing edge delivers a blend of pre-EQ’d clarity and tonal warmth.
In addition to a host of hardware upgrades and six stunning finishes to choose from, Session Studio Select’s three specially-priced shell packs each include a FREE added floor tom, for extra value for the professional drummer.
Session Studio Select finishes include three high gloss lacquers #314 Gloss Barnwood Brown, #315 Antique Crimson Burst and #316 Black Halo Glitter. STS finishes also feature three deluxe Delmar wraps, #405 Nicotine White Marine Pearl, #414 Ice Blue Oyster, #762 Molten Matte Black Pearl.

The Session Sound originated with the blending of Birch and Mahogany in a hybrid shell that was both warm and resonant, as well as punchy and loud. Returning with an unexpected upgrade, Session Studio Select shifts to a thinner, 5.4mm EvenPly-Six combination of Masters-grade Birch and African Mahogany.
Taking a tip from the Masterworks spectrum, Session Studio Select increases punch and focus with Pearl’s 60 degree bearing edge, creating a shell with stunning tonal decay.
Pearl’s Superior Shell Technology utilizes a proprietary technique for achieving the ultimate air chamber. It begins with select woods chosen for their unique acoustic attributes, milled to precise thickness with overlapping scarf joint seams, for a perfect air-tight fit. The wood plies are saturated with Pearl’s proprietary “AcoustiGlue” that permeates every pore and dries to the exact consistency of the wood for optimum resonance. Finally, the plies are formed in high-temperature molds with 1000 PSI of hydraulic pressure to produce perfect drum shells that exhibit superior tone, optimal resonance and extreme strength.
