Drumsets Session Studio Select

Session Studio Select without question is the ultimate value in drums. Offering many of the ground-breaking features normally found on drums that cost substantially more. Session Studio Classic is the perfect “Step up” kit for the aspiring musician.


Session Studio Select

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.

Shell Composition

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.
