Thanks!

When I got it 8 years ago It was standard black.

Then about 6 years ago I got ahold of some autograde vinyl (the type they use for logos and pinstripes) and essentially put a big red sticker on.



Thats the only image I could find of that.


That got beat up pretty good on gigs, so I stripped the original wrap and bought that beautiful blue sparkle, and older generation chrome pearl hardware (via http://drummaker.com) and did it over 2 days. I absolutely love it.

Its a 22x16. I wish it was an 18. That has always been a complaint of mine on my kit.

I want to say its a blue Sparkle, not glitter. But I could be wrong. It was a while ago.

Well that kick looks smaller than 22 in the pictures. Or your floor tom is just really high :)

I'm 6'3, so my drums are real tall! haha

My 14" floor tom doesn't have legs long enough so I have to stack books under it.

This is my first kit, a Pearl Export still going strong after 12 years. 22" bass, 10" tom, 12" tom, 14" tom and 14" snare.





Sadly it appears I will be parting ways with these drums in a few months as I have a Starclassic Bubinga on order.

This is the most important material thing I own. Drums exercise the mind and body. I think everyone should learn.

Pearl Reference kit in "Piano Black." Bass drum is 18"x20" and the toms are 10, 12, and 14.

Sounds absolutely fantastic and the build quality is second to no other kit I've seen or owned. This is a VERY nice kit!

Yeah baby those Refs are astounding. A Reference kit in natural maple is my dream kit.

Thanks man! I absolutely love a natural maple finish too!

PS - I incorrectly listed the bass drum as 18"x22", but it's really 18"x20". Just fixed it.

Here's my new to me 90-93 Pearl Export. 24x16" kick, 14x12" Rack tom, 18x16" floor tom, and 14x5.5" Chrome Snare. I've also got matching 13" and 16" tom's for this kit but I'm a pretty strict four piece guy. I'll post more pics once my new cymbals arrive later this week.

Here's mine in a video:

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=PLVj...ature=youtu.be

Pearl Reference Pure in piano black. 16x22 bass, 8x12, 14x14, 16x16 toms with 6.5x14 Studio Session Classic snare also in piano black. Ride cymbal is a Zildjian 22" K Light Ride, with Zildjian A thin crashes (17s) used for hi-hats on a RH-2000 cable hat.

Recording with my Zoom Q3HD about four feet in front of the kit.

I am loving these drums!
