I got my first Pearl-Kit in 1976… and it will be Pearl forever.
I own and play different Pearl-Drums from all decades:
Pearl-President, Wood-Fiberglass, BLX, MLX, Session Elite, BRX, MRX,
As a working drummer in different styles from Rock to Jazz I need drums
that fit in all these different musical situations.
And one of the most important things on the road is reliable hardware.
So in my working life Pearl-Drums are like good old friends.
Never change a winning set!
