MCX Series on tour with AKON

"I had been anticipating it for so long, when my Pearl MCX Masters Series kit arrived  I felt like a kid on Christmas. I love the uniqueness of the kit. The sound is clean and on top of that it looks great". Michael has been a long-time user of the ICON rack system and comments on how it has changed has configuration, "As far as the setup, the rack makes it fairly easy. It actually eliminates a lot of hardware that isn’t needed."

He can also be heard on AKON's latest release, Freedom, featuring the massive single "Right Now (Na Na Na)", the infectious song is the #1 Most Added at Rhythm Crossover radio stations in its first week of release. "The studio sound is immaculate on the Master Series. The set feels so comfortable to me when I am on it which is the reason why I've always played Pearl and ordered the Masters Series." Our exclusively manufactured 6 ply 100% Maple shells are perfect for the studio as they are resonant and produce the perfect blend of stunning attack, smooth midrange and low end punch. "I am glad to be a Pearl of the whole Pearl family and I can’t wait till there are new additions that I can add on to my kit."

Michael is currently on a world tour and engineer extraordinaire Byron McNeish says "Love the sound coming from the kit, all I can say to sum it up is it's precise, punchy and very solid." And what does the multi-platinum AKON think of the new kit? "Even AKON loves the kit and the look it gives the stage when performing. explains Micheal. "The sound that it adds is even more of a bonus. It doesn’t get any better than the Master Series Kit and I will put that against any drum set in the world!"
