Pearl Session Studio Select Kit – Drummer’s Review

Here’s our review of a Pearl Session Studio Select shell pack and matching snare drum, featuring…

  • 20″ x 14″ bass drum,
  • 10″ x 7″ rack tom,
  • 12″ x 8″ rack tom,
  • 14″ x 14″ floor tom,
  • 14″ x 5.5″ matching snare drum (sold separately)
  • 6-ply, 5.4mm birch/mahogany shells,
  • 60-degree outer bearing edges.

Pearl says…“Session Studio Select without a question is the ultimate value in drums. Offering many of the ground-breaking features normally found on drums that cost substantially more. The magic of this Pearl Session Studio Select kit is the hybrid shell: the Birch gives you a great snap and African Mahogany adds warmth to the sound.

For over a quarter century, Pearl’s Session Series drums have yielded some of the most harmonically vibrant recorded drum tones ever captured in the studio environment. Returning with a custom upgrade from the boutique-level Masterworks spectrum, new Session Studio Select drums shift to the classic shell blend that made them an artist favourite.”
