They replaced the Exports for a few years and I think they’re built much better than even the newer Exports. If you can live with the fact that you probably won’t be able to add to the set since Pearl has discontinued them a few years ago now, they’re great drums and id buy them. But lugs and spurs can still be had from certain dealers if you break something so you’re good there. I’d say they were right below the Session Series.
I got the impression they replaced the Session and the Export at the same time. For whatever reason the Export started getting upgraded a lot over the years. My guess it was becoming too close in quality to the Session. I remember when the Export came out it was market as an entry level kit, not much different than the Forum line today.
