pearl masterworks

Post  DYNASONIC on Thu Feb 11, 2010 3:18 am

just started some sessions where i have been asked to use a new Pearl masterworks kit for the recordings , now having come from thirty years of Gretsch Rogers Ludwig playing this was a fairly new experience for me ,they were maple with a bronze snare,apart from the engineer saying to me they are half the volume of the vintage american kits ,i'd like to know of anyone who has played these and their opinions ,i'll wait till the mixing is done before i can comment. Smile someone may have some tips on getting the best out of them etc. Smile

straight maple?

someone didn't really take full advantage of the masterworks program then, they're designed to spec, what ever plies you want you can have... but the volume comment is interesting, might need to investigate

Yeah you'd think a Pearl Masters MMP would be the same but the Masterworks gives you options for thickness and bearing edges. Who sells Pearl drums in NZ these days?

I always hear how Pearls kick drums record great.

Andrew from stellar had one in gold sparkle and rated it I actually did some mods on it
with bruce king for a touring international drummer and was surprised at how thick the
shells were. A friend has a silver/black burst kit and is happy with it I think, i'll direct him
to this thread see if he can offer some comments.

hmmm vintage tinge to the sound?

Personally i really like them, if i had the spare cash i'd get one in an instant, they do some amazing finishes let alone phenomenal sounding drums
