Pearl’s Export kit has been one of the best-selling entry-level kits money can buy for many a year, if this kit is anything to go by, it will continue to be so for many years to come. The Pearl Export is a name that every drummer knows - it's rare to meet a drummer that in the very least, has played an Export at one time or another. It's even rarer to meet one who didn't love it.
The Export excels in its price bracket, offering fantastic features you’re unlikely to find in other starter kits. This is a kit that won't be pushed to the side or outgrown quickly; its qualities will continue to hold up through beginner to intermediate standards with ease. It features Reference inspired shells, a P-930 drum pedal, Opti-Loc Tom Mounts, a fantastic hardware package and even a great set of cymbals - everything you need to get started.
Inspired by Pearl’s acclaimed Reference Series, the Export combines Poplar and Asian Mahogany to create its lush full-bodied tone, rich and present with great resonance and sustain. Each shell is sonically optimised by the strategic arrangement of its ply layers. The shell is then formed by Pearl’s SST manufacturing process - a combination of extreme heat, precision-cut scarf joints, Acoustiglue and over 1000lbs of hydraulic pressure.
Each shell features specifically designed low-mass lugs that minimise shell contact for increased resonance and sustain. The rack toms are equipped with Pearl’s Opti-Loc Mounting System designed to allow the drums to vibrate freely, increasing sustain and resonance while providing stable support.
The Export shells are worth the kits price tag on their own, but Pearl has seen fit to treat you even further by adding some great hardware and cymbals to the deal. The hardware pack features a BC-830 boom stand, C-830 cymbal stand, and S-830 snare drum stand, H-830 hi-hat stand and P-930 drum pedal. All feature adjustable Uni-Lock Tilters for accurate positioning, sturdy double-braced tripods. The cymbal pack contains a set of 14” hi-hats, a 16” crash and a 20” ride all from Sabians SBR series.
We offer these in either a Satin Shadow Black, Smokey Chrome or High Voltage Blue finishes.
