    Welcome to the Session Squadron. I've long felt that Sessions were overlooked and underrated kits - I bought mine specifically because of the value I believe they have. IMO they are a fully professional level set of drums, right on par with the MXR/MPR/MCX Masters - after all, from a construction standpoint they are the same 6 ply, 7.5 mm shells, built on the same forms, from the same maple stock (the masters have a higher finish grade outer ply, but sonically it makes no difference) and have the same precision cut bearing edges. I've owned mine for over 6 years. When I got mine, the goal was to have a kit I was going to be happy to play for the next 10 years or so, and I'm still as happy with them now as I was when I got them.

    Nice kit - I definitely approve!

    I fully concur that sessions are awesome. i have pretty much the same kit in green fade, plus a 16x16 and a 12x10. All the toms have killer tone. The kick is great, though my 1971 Ludwig 22x14 sounds better. Still, for a modern kick, the Session is great.

    I don't know what else anyone could want in a drum kit. Though your hoops are a bit chipped up, you may want to try stripping them down to bare wood instead of replacing.

    As far as I know, those are the original version of the SMX before they gave them the bridge style lugs and changed the style of the badge. I don't think that the Session Selects were 100 percent maple. Those are the original (and now re-introduced) RL-10 lugs, and I think they were used by both the Export and the Session series until they introduced the NCL-100 lug design. They aren't bridge style, but I seriously doubt if it matters that much at the end of the day when bigger, more obvious issues like head selection and tuning determine how a drum is going to sound.

    I was "this" close to picking up a whole second Session kit - it was used but it was the same Vintage Fade as mine, only with the RL-10 lugs. It was sitting used on the GC floor for something insane like $350, but I couldn't justify the second kit at the time.

    According to Pearl, that badge still falls under the SRX designation. I have the same and that's what they told me. New hoops will probably run $80 - $100 for the pair. I'd try to clean up what you have first. Again, beautiful looking and sounding kit you have there.

    But in this one he doesn't seem to be that happy...

    Can't be the drums, though. They're nice!
