    This should be a Sticky and explain the new 830 Hardware. It made me spend the last couple hours on my 3rd set of Exports!

    I must say I like that Smokey Chrome finish and that Electric Blue Sparkle looks really cool on the new EXX Export!
    I wonder at what price this will come
    The only thing I don't like is the 'Made in China' placement on the badge

    Glad to see the return of Smokey Chrome, as well as them all having chrome lugs/hardware again. I love the red wine color, I have had 2 sets in that finish over the years, fortunately mine were old enough they had chrome hardware. I did NOT like the red wine with black hardware, I never thought it looked good. Glad to see the Exports back in the lineup! Got Exports back, got Sessions back....now if the MLX/BLX could just make a comeback too

    i like the white, but i'm not too crazy about the other finishes. also what is up with the floor tom in between the basses on the pearl website? i've never really seen a set configured that way...

    Are the opti-lock tom mounts drilled into the actual shell?

    No they are not drilled into the shell. Pearl’s new Opti-Loc tom mounts attaches via a triangular design with two tension rod attachment points and another one through one of the drum’s two air vents (allowing you to mount from either side with the badge showing front and center) providing 100% stability allowing the tom to resonate freely.

    I do like this new mount. A much needed improvement on the design. I hope they get added onto Vision kits next year.

    I went back and searched for a post I made a while back about an updated ISS design. I wasn't going to mention this if I couldn't find the post.

    From April 29th of last year.

    Fantastic job bringing what I envisioned to life! Do I get some sort of kick-back? HA!

    Serisouly though, the new Export series looks awesome. I love everything except maybe the badge, it's rather large. Or that could be due to the smaller lugs.

    Just too bad I'm not in the market for this type of kit.

    After seeing the Export make a triumphant return new and improved, it has got me confused now on what my next kit should be.
