Ha! No way. Pearl introduced the Session Studio Select (formerly the Session Studio Classic) in 2018. I got mine earlier this year. I had a Session series in the '90s, and it was a great kit. In the recent update, though, Pearl included a lot of Masters-grade features in the Session Studio Select, one reason I chose it over a Masters category. I've also owned a few Masters kits over the years, as well as BLXs and Exports. I'd have to say my current set is my favorite, mostly because I find something very special about the birch/African mahogany shells and the manner in which Pearl crafted them this time around. They're only 5.4mm, and their tone isn't quite like that of anything I've played previously.Is this the same 4 piece configuration you switched to?
