Great set. That set is actually a potential future set of mine, that is just the best finish I've ever seen.

Great drums and photography. Just watch those bass drum legs with spikes out on the hardwood floors.

It's definately interesting to see the color change from the rack to floor toms with those clear heads on it. I've only seen them so far with coated heads. Pimpin dude...

I love these drums and that's the most comfortable set up for me, I'll try to post some new pics soon, with new configuration of toms and updated cymbals and hardware.

incredible finish and incredible pics, just a beautiful kit!

and me, i like the set up, i do something similar myself and find it really opens up the kit, keeps you centered and can create some great sounds with a tom close to that left hand...

enjoy the Pearl's man!

Beautiful!

Is the morph between blue and purple from the camera, or does the kit do it under lights also?

Purple as a drum color sounds ugly to me. After seeing THIS kit, it might be my new favorite color. Very nice kit.

First of all, great kit. Second....don't post another set up picture because two people wanted to see 2 up 2 down, sorry, but BORING!

I love the way you have it set up! It's YOUR set up,....it's unique, and different.

APPLAUSE!!!

VERY NICE!

It's great seeing how others uniquely position their kits. I always imagine how you must play it - and how I would.

I think that may be the nicest looking Pearl kit I've seen. The last picture is great too. They might be contacting you to use that in the Pearl promo material.

Panask---as good as your drums look in those photos, they look fantastic in daylight poses. The true color really pops. Just a beautiful set and the configuration is easily played. To me, the best photo taken was the hats from the side. Art. Thanks for posting.

I was always anti pearl until I had the chance to play a reference set a few months ago and wow, those things are mind-blowing. That kit looks amazing, congrats! Very nice photos too.
