Pearl Export Series Review

Priced at roughly $1,000 the Pearl Export series is a very reasonably priced drum set. Many drummers argue over the quality and sound of poplar shells; however the difference in sound quality is hard to distinguish for the untrained ear. The Export Series is made of durable hardware and can stand the test of time, including rigorous playing as well as gigging and transport. For the price, the Pearl Export Series is a quality purchase.
