A five year old thread. I wonder what he bought.
That "dry" sound you speak of is the only thing I don't like about the Exports, and the only reason I sold mine. They are well made drums, and the hardware package is outstanding. And Pearl is one of the companies that still do chrome right - it's very deep. I just could not get the sustain out of the Export toms that I like - the "dry" quality you mention. This is just the ticket for many drummers, though, and is one of the qualities that make people like them.The new Export series is decent... A tad dry for my taste, but for the money you get a pretty nice set up.
My pleasure! Rock em hard my friend. I had the same kit a few years back in white and they sounded pretty darn good!Yeah it's a 3 piece lug. Just did a quick Google and seems like the 90s lugs.
Thanks for the info on the shell composition.
It's the chrome wrap, just need a good clean and it'll be ready to rock.
Thanks again pearlygates 😀
Yep.. should be good to go on those sizes,.. 10x8 and 14x14 should be available.. check ebay often.Just need to find a 10 inch Tom in mirror chrome and in all set 😀
Possibly a 14x14 floor Tom on legs too.
Anyone know if they were even produced in them sizes?
Looser?The Export-talk on the internet never stops, and that's why I took the time and wrote a review on that set. (I play it in my band's rehearsal room.)
And because this thread still shows up very prominently when googling for Export reviews, I hope it's okay to share mine here for all those people who come through the search engines.
