    Hey guys! I am a recent owner of a Pearl Decade Maple kit and I couldn't be more excited! I was pleasantly surprised by the quality not only of the sound but the fit and finish!

So here's what I'm rockin', how bout you!?

      South paw! Very nice setup! How do you like pinstripes with these shells?

      One thing that really surprised me with these out of the box was the attention to the bearing edges. The drums tuned easily enough but I was really taken with how smooth they were and they even seemed to be waxed straight from the factory. I’ve owned other kits in this price range and was glad to know that for my money this detail wasn’t overlooked! Thanks for sharing!

        The pinstripes fit this kit really well, normally I use evans heads but I bought the kit used and it came with these. The only head ive changed is the kick batter I changed it for a emad 2, the snare is a modern utility maple 14x6,5.

          It's true, the kit is super easy to tune, a couple of turns and it sounds amazing.

                Got ahead of my self to see if the set would fit throne and all in a 5’ x 7’ space. It did but I should probably finish one project at a time.... I got a nice picture of the players seat just ignore the mess. Lol

                      I've posted these in a few other threads, but until I take some new ones you'll just have to settle for my recycling.

                      Specs:
                      16" x 20" kick (Powerstroke 3 batter, stock reso. I replaced the pillow with a towel just to give it a little more booty)
                      9" x 10" rack
                      10" x 12" rack
                      14" x 14" floor
                      (Emperor batters and stock reso's on all toms until I can afford new bottom heads)
                      6.5" x 14" custom flame birch stave snare (Emperor batter, Evans Level 360 snare side)

                      14" Zildjian New Beat hats
                      13" Sildjian K Custom Dark hats
                      17" Paiste Prototype crash
                      18" Paiste Prototype crash
                      19" Paiste Prototype crash
                      22" vintage Zildjian Avedis ride from the 60's

                        Nice! I really dig the offset toms especially from the players perspective! Thanks for sharing!

                          Thanks! I sit angled away from the kick as opposed to facing straight forward and twisting my foot, so the toms being offset like that are how they're most comfortable and natural for me to play.

                              I can dig it! Makes all the sense in the world to me. When I had more toms I used to love placing two toms on a stand to let me place my ride where it was most comfortable. Really dig it man!
