    Default Home Sweet Home, Tommy Lee Returns to Pearl!

    Pearl Drums is proud to welcome back, the legend himself, Tommy Lee to the Pearl Drums artist roster! After a lengthy sabbatical from playing behind the Pearl name, Tommy will debut his new Pearl kit this summer, with Motley Crue, throughout their 2011 summer amphitheater tour. Having led the forefront to the booming Los Angeles music scene in the 1980’s, Tommy Lee, Nikki Sixx, Mick Mars, and Vince Neil, have all become household names thanks to their Motley Crue fame, selling over 80 million albums since their inception into the mainstream rock world in 1981. A mere 30 years later, the band continues to pack the house in the world’s largest stadiums and arenas, with their “Crue Fest” tours often serving as the highlight of the summer season for their seemingly endless amount of devoted followers and fans. Between their hit songs, multi-platinum selling albums, massive world tours, and their hard-living lifestyle, Motley Crue have practically (and literally) written the book on how to be a rockstar, inspiring millions of musicians along the way.

    Newly acquired Pearl artist, Tommy Lee, has become an icon in the drumming world and is considered to be one of the biggest influences to the most popular and elite drum-stars of the last 25 years. Known by drummers world-wide for the hard hitting, stick flipping, all-out powerful assault that he unleashes on is drums, Tommy Lee personifies what it is to be a rock drummer, while continuing to raise the bar for everyone else to try and follow. Aside from the drum solos that push the limits of sanity and defy the theories of gravity, Tommy’s rock drumming arsenal is filled with rolls and licks that expand much further than rock’s basic beats that land on 2 and 4. His quick foot, flawless fills, and powerful slamming of the skins largely attributes to the unforgettable hit songs that have continued to flood the radio airwaves for the past 30 years.

    As is with his signature technique that is emulated by many, Tommy Lee’s drum kits and eccentric drum setups have become a staple on the Motley Crue’s stage, often proving to be the eye-catching centerpiece that demands all the attention. With the desire for the outlandish and the want to have something different than the rest, Tommy has often incorporated many different odd-sized drums and large setups to heighten the visual aspect of a Crue concert…as if the pyrotechnics and flipping drum risers weren’t enough. This summer, the limits will be pushed; once again, with an all new live show and a custom built E-Pro Live electronic/acoustic kit that will guarantee that Tommy has the perfect tone and pitch from each drum. The E-Pro Live kit, which was introduced from Pearl Drums back in January of 2010, is the first drum set in production that looks and sounds like a real drum kit, but with a limitless sonic capability and the feel of an acoustic kit. Tommy’s custom E-Pro Live kit, will the first of its kind, for the drummer that insists on having the best possible sound and the highest quality product, night after night.

The 2011 Motley Crue summer tour is gearing up to hit the road starting this June, so check below for a full list of tour dates and keep checking back to www.PearlDrum.com for more information of Tommy’s new E-pro Live kit.

    Does this mean Pearl for Epro live only and Still DW for acoustic kits or Pearl acoustic kits as well?????

    Just asking since people like Omar Hakim are both Pearl and Roland V-drums.
