Default Pearl hardware

Hi everyone!

I've read some good comments here on pearl hardware, also some people tell me that pearl is among the best hardware for quality/price.

But if i go with pearl HW i just wanna know if i need to go with their best of the line 2000 series or if 900/1000 can be far enough? or maybe a mix can be the way?

I plan to buy a Gretsch renown maple soon and the kit have a virgin bassdrum...

Thanks for some feedback.

That depends on if you are going to do a ton of heavy gigging or not and if the toms are flying or kick mounted. If toms are gonna be mounted on the stands with a cymbal or two and you plan on gigging a lot, then I'd go heavy duty. It is only a few pounds more per stand, but piece of mind is golden. : ^ )

My drum wil not going for gigging. And my toms will be mounted on stands.

But the famous "peace of mind" maybe a wiseword ...you maybe an Iron Maiden fan cause you wrote Piece of Mind ;-)...

Is the series under the 2000 is strong enough for tom/cymbals support?

The features of the 2000 line vs. 1000/900's would be my primary concern. Between the 3 series are different features. If you're gonna get a 5 piece kit, fly 2 rack toms (1 off each cymbal stand), set it up in your house and leave it there, 900's would be fine. If your kit is gonna involve 10 cymbals, and you need to get all those "just right" angles, you might want to look at the 2000's closer. Or even a rack.
