Default First Post -Pearl Reference Pure (Matte Walnut) - Pearl Brass Free Floating Snare

Hey all,

Been reading around here for a while so I finally took some time to post some nice pictures of my kit :)

If any of you are on the Pearl Drummers Forum you would have seen this kit and the custom ICON racks I built before.

Feedback appreciated! :)

Hey that's really pretty! How long did it take for you to get that finish? I ordered mine in piano black, and although I got my bass drum and two floors in about a month, I had to wait almost five months to get my 8x12 rack tom.

It was worth it though.

This kit was built and shipped to me in Australia in just over 3 weeks! Amazing turn around :)

Looks very inviting. Super nice drums and set up. My Masterworks kit has been stacked in a corner too long, gonna have to blow the dust off and set them up again.

Gorgeous set for sure. Do those Pearl mounts have a ball and socket anywhere for infinite placement? All of the adjustable pieces look as if they only move in one plane.

The Pearl Tom arms are not on a ball-and-socket. But the drum can be rotated once on the arm. It takes a bit of a set-up but once you have and set it there, it never changes. It really is the Rogers Memriloc on steroids.

I just use a snare stand for my rack tom ;)

Thanks mate! I believe this finish has been replaced with 'Antique Walnut' now... I could be mistaken though!

Thanks King!

Matt pretty much nailed it with that description of the Pearl mounts. Once you get it set up perfectly, it's going to stay that way forever! :) Best mounts on the market in my opinion. I installed an optimount on my rack tom of my gigging kit (Gretsch Catalina Birch) and haven't looked back since! :)

Now these are great drums. Had I seen these, I would have been tempted to stay Pearl, and not switch to DW. Really sharp set.

What clamp do you have coming out of your far right rack bar? And what do you have it attached to? Is that an AX-25L or the Gibraltar clamp? ?

Nice finish on those.

I like separate cymbal stands, but the side racks you've got are a
nice compromise for running a lot of cymbals, compared to a full
rack which usually covers up some of the drums from the front view.

3 weeks?

I was told 6 months just to get a replacement copper or stainless steel shell for my FF.

Has Pearl heard the word and changed their shipping policies?

I think it's because he's in Australia, maybe?

I cut a small piece of cymbal stand tube to about 10cm long and put in into the rack leg which allowed me to mount things to it. Right now there's an old AX25 in there with a modded short boom arm. The AX25 just gives me a little more length as mounting this crash in the rack leg was too close to my china.

Thanks mate! That's exactly the reason I built these racks :) Needed more functionality but didnt want to hide the kit! Plus, when gigging, I set these racks up off stage and i can cary them onstage by myself. Set up is very very fast!

I actually scored a little endorsement with Pearl just before ordering this kit and they went above and beyond to look after me :)

Absolutely gorgeous kit!
I have a cymbal layout VERY similar to yours. - I will pick your brain on the custom ICON rack setup when it comes time :)

That is some serious drum pornography, there. Beautiful kit, and I don't even mind the rack, since it doesn't block the view of all the good stuff.

Thanks heaps! I'm going to be building these racks again soon to keep with this kit while these racks in the pictures stay with my gig kit :) Will post photos when that's done!

I have posted my kit up several times. It is a Frankenkit that I purchased a piece at a time and then refinished to all match. The 8,10,12,14 are Masterworks, the Kick is a Maple Masters and the 15 tom is a Cherry stave that blends in perfectly. I had a second Maple Pearl but it just did not sound right so I stripped the shell and used the hardware on the cherry shell I built.
