CAN'T BE REAL !!
CAN'T BE REAL !!
well they are real drums. I am pretty sure they aren't a $2000 picture of drums.
But the description of the drums themselves tell you who made them, what the shells are and the hardware. They aren't a Pearl brand drum kit, if that is what you mean by real.
on a side note, I wouldn't mind a kit just like this though. Minus the offset lugs and the gold hardware.
I like the description, Reference/Masters. The whole point of the Reference line is the different blendings of Birch, Maple and Mahogany for the different sizes. I doubt you could get that sort of "blending" with plastic. The only thing reference on those drums is the hardware.

(22x18(2), 8x7, 10x8, 12x9, 14x11, 16x16, 18x16, 14x6.5 20ply snare)
Pearl Masters Kit - Vintage Wine
(20x16, 10x8, 12x9, 14x14)
So true ^^
I would love Pearl to produce an acrylic set. It would be pretty sweet IMO, but that isn't a very large market...
Sad thing is everything on this kit could be had for very cheap. The price killer is getting those Reference Lugs.
It's not an acrylic Reference set, it's RCI acrylic shells with Pearl Reference hardware.
lolololololololCustom Acrylic Kit (basically a Pearl Reference/Masters Acrylic kit)
Dave is in less control of the metaphor than Hemingway.
He's got a little bit of Everything on these drums:
Pearl Reference Gold Plated Lugs
Pearl Stainless Steel Tension Rods w/ ultra thick White Pearl Nylon Washers
Pearl Super Hoop II rims (chrome)
Pearl Gold Plated Threaded Vents (1 on each tom 2 on kick)
Toms are fitted with Gauger Rims Mounts, DW Brackets, DW Floor Tom Legs
Bass Drum is outfitted with Pearl SP30 Spurs (Masters series not Reference)
Pearl Reference Claws w/ rubber gaskets
12 ply maple BD Hoops Chrome Wrapped w/ Pearl HPP2 BD Hoop Protector
While I guess I would applaud his creativity, the reality is that this is an abortion
That bright yellow acrylic is awful.

The color certainly isn't for everyone, but I think he did a great job on the kit. Not worth $2000 to me unless I built or had it built custom for me...but it looks nice.
Dutch: What happened to him?
Vic: He came at me. He was unarmed. I took him down old school.
Dutch: Old as in medieval?
