I'm guessing but........

April 2, 1946 Katsumi Yanagisawa starts manufacturing music stands in Sumida, Tokyo, Japan and names his company Pearl Ltd.

Maybe because Asia is consider the Pearl of the orient?

Maybe because this was just after Pearl Harbour incident,as he was Japanese...I don't know,just trying to guess what could be linked to it.

was it just because he thaught his drums were the best (and he was right) and were a like jewels,like Pearls ..:)

Hey, the place I'm going for extra education next year has a maxwin by pearl kit!

It looks pretty nice actually, for old drums. I'll have to test it's sound when there I go. :)
