Default Here we go again - Pearl Masters MCX

I'm officially the biggest gear glutton on the forum now...I dare you to challenge that claim. Anyhow - here's my new kit! Again!

I posted my vintage 80's Ludwigs last week but as it turns out, I was really unhappy w/ the sound of the power toms. Both the sound and the action on the heads wasn't up my alley...that's what I get for buying them sight-unseen (and un-played).

So, I goes into Guitar Center, I does...and I tells 'em I need some decent mid-range maple drums to play, immediately. I tried these Masters, Some Tama B/B, and some PDP Platinums. I liked them all (naturally) but the Pearls sounded the best to me....big, fat, projecting, and warm...but it was a bit over my budget. I tried to leave but they held me back...and let me have it at what I was willing to spend. I was shocked, to say the least. These guys normally wouldn't negotiate if it meant life or death.

Here they are! I believe the finish is called "Bronze Glass"...it's a wrap.

18"x22" BD
16"x16" FT
9"x12" TT
7"x13" Pork Pie Brass Patina Snare (details here)

The cymbal setup:

21" HHX Groove Ride
13" Fierce Hats
17" HHX Evolution Crash
19" Fierce Crash
10" Paragon Splash
20" Paragon Chinese
7" Alu Bell

Don't be so sure!!!!

I have some more "projects" in the works.

However, I will gladly accept second place.

What a beautiful kit.

How long do you think you will keep them.

I am willing to make any member on this board a bet that Vinnie keeps them LESS than 4 months.

I still can't believe you haven't yet bought the Paragon 19 China!!! It is SO sweet!

Great looking kit of the week Vin!

Oh, your bass drum would make a nice floor tom on my kit!

You need a kit o' the week sticky right here on the forum, Vin.

Saw Donati play this exact same kit last week. Same finish and it sounded incredible.

Really nice lookin' kit. Yeah, I like the more "traditional" sizes also...especially on rack toms. Of the 3 choices you listed, I'd have grabbed the Pearls also.

Zam,

You know im already totally disappointed in you for giving up those champagne Luddies in the first place! I guess its ok because I think that leaves me the only one w/ a bop sized new classic set :-P

Anyhow the pearl masters are truly awesome kits, I've played a few myself and each time am just blown away w/ the projection and tone they give out, hands down an AWESOME kit and a great choice on the finish as well. A little more traditional on the sizes compaired to the champagne Ludwigs like harry said probably a bit more up your alley.

When you gonna by me my next kit :P I'll take a roundbadge gretsch pleaseeeeeee .. thanks zam!

Default Re: Here we go again - Pearl Masters MCX

I'm blown away by how good they sound and how nice they feel to play. I played w/ the "jazz" band the night I got them and my bass player just sat back and watched me warm up. When I was done he said; "now, those sound nice...". Either he was sincere or he's just tired of seeing/hearing new drums every time we play.

Mike - I'll take that bet! I'm fatigued...I can't handle this vicious cycle anymore.

jay - you're right, these sizes definitely fit me better. That bop kit wasn't holding up in loud, amped settings...especially the kick, which choked when you really laid into it. I miss it though, it was a beauty!

Abe - That's a beauty! I took the Optimount off of my 12" but may use it in the future. I actually bought this kit so that I could channel Virgil's playing through my hands...it's a feature!

Review Time:

The construction on these drums is way beyond anything I've seen, and that includes any DW kit I've played. It's perfection all the way...I couldn't spot a single flaw, honestly. The die-cast hoops, the super low-mass aluminum lugs, claws, etc., perfect (slightly rounded) 45-degree edges, oh man. I haven't seen this kind of construction quality in mass market drums before.

The sound is killer...this is my most favorite kit yet. The bass drum is the fattest & punchiest I've played, hands down. The toms sing...and sing....and sing. I have coated ambassadors on there now simply because they came with pinstripes over clear ambs. I just swapped out the batters on the toms and kick. I'll probably put coated G2s over clear G1s on there this weekend.

The tuning range is every bit as broad as the DW kits I've had and the hoops made them very easy to tune. The floor tom tunes up a little brighter than the 16's I've had before but I'm attributing that to the coated amb. I've got on there. I'm sure a G2 is going to take it down into the range I want it at.

I'm not crazy about it being wrapped but at the same time - it's a kit that's going to get dragged around and used in environments that a wrap is perfect for. It's not glued down to the shell (but it's tight) - so if I were to replace it someday, it'd be a matter of lifting the seam and pulling it off. I like that idea!

Well, zambizzi is a total gear whore, but I have to admit he has good taste and only gets top-notch stuff.

I'll take you up on your bet: I bet he will have them less than two months. If he has them between two and four months, I will buy and send you the sticks of your choice (up to $15 price of sticks). If he has them less than two months from the date of this thread, you will owe me a pair. If he has them longer than four months, nobody gets anything. Deal?

Anybody want to get a pool going? Do I hear one week?

What if he has them LONGER than 4 months? I suppose it will be snowing in hell!!!!

I will take you up on your bet Deathmetalconga. Although, I should get "odds" since more than likely they will be gone in less than 30 days.

What are the sticks of your choice!!!!

Vinnie, hold out for at least 62 days!!!!!

I have the same addiction you do, so I will not hold it against you if you can't.

It is an urge that can't be fought.

So, no hard feelings if I end up buy DMC some sticks!

Well, the whore is about to get married and settle down. There's a rumor about Vin doing a high class custom job, thats all very hush hush at the moment. I got a sniff last week, but I'll seal my lips till the bugles sound off.

Yes, the mystery kit is still being crafted and should be done in a couple weeks...or a few...or...whatever? I'll have to post sound clips and let you guys compare them, since I WILL have this kit AT LEAST that long! ;)

I agree...even the cymbals seem to match up perfectly w/ the finish...it's eye-catching! Freddy, if there *ever* was a snare you needed - this is the one. It's unique and it'll punch a hole in the audience. I'll even back you up w/ the wife on this one...I got ya buddy!

gmrakich?

Zambizzi, I think you need to write a book titled "The saga of Zambizzi's gear". (I imagine it would be mostly pictures, don't worry we'll read the articles.)

Seriously nice kit, I like it much better than the Ludwig.

I put coated G2s over clear G1s on the toms last night...holy moley! I'm not exaggerating when I say; these drums sound nicer than any DW or Ludwig kit that I've had...and the quality is even beyond either of them. To add insult to injury, these drums were far less expensive.

If I buy another mass-market kit in the future, I'm most definitely looking at Pearl first.

Can anyone recommend some nice Pearl snares? I like metal snares...brass or steel would be my preference. I like 14x6.5 but I'd look at more shallow snares if the sound was right...I wouldn't go deeper.

Try one of the brass free-floaters. They're supposed to be excellent. If you don't like the sound, you can always just buy a new shell without having to buy an entirely new drum ;-)

Excellent! I've seen those in catalogs...I'll have a look. The ultra-cast sound right up my alley, too.

Not to be a party-pooper, but isn't that one of those words that should be banned? I've recommended to a couple of my 8 to 10 year old students that they should check out this website and forum. I'd hate to see them asking me at my next lesson, "Mr. Caddywumpus, what's a cymbal w***e?"

But my son we do not want you using such a word as wh**e and you should avoid that type of banter."

I guess I prefer "drum wh@#$" to "drum lady-of-the-evening".

I suppose I've been called worse, however.

If it's true, by definition - shouldn't someone be paying me? I'm more of a drum "John".

Zambizzi, beautiful kit for sure...does your wife ever get worried about your obvious genetic flaw requiring constant need for change? How do you get comfortable behind a set that is constantly changing?

Temptation is a mighty, mighty thing for sure!!!

I admit I am jealous of the beautiful kit, and if the sound is as good as you say...WOW!

Your local drum dealers must cringe when you walk in...

I admit I am jealous of the beautiful kit, and if the sound is as good as you say...WOW!

Your local drum dealers must cringe when you walk in...

Funny you should mention that, my wife and I were having that conversation last night. She must be doing something right - 10+ and maybe a handful of harmless fights...my first wife too! :D

I stay comfortable mostly because I almost always play the same sizes. My Luds had smaller sizes, which took some adjusting, and wasn't for me in the end. I'm back to what I've played for most of my short time as a drummer. I'll probably play this setup for years, it just "fits" me.

Strangely enough, the staff at GC (our only decent music store) revolves faster than my drum stock. This means they barely get their shirts buttoned up before their replacements arrive.

Now THAT'S beautiful!

Not to detract from the Pearls, but how do you like the Sabian Groove ride there? Is it crashable as they say? I'm looking for a 21" ride to use for light passage riding and then really gettin on it in choruses and heavy parts... you think it's good for that?
