  • Finally, NEW KIT! Pearl VBX!

    Whoa guys, this is only a semi pro Pearl but I am absolutely stunned!

    Basically, I have been playing a five piece CB kit for four and a half years now. I'd wanted a
    better kit for most of those years but today I had the money to do so. From walking in, I'd established
    that a Vision was the quality and price I was looking for - although I was oepn to suggestions. I tried
    others - Tama and the likes although eveentually I felt they didn't top the Vision. After years of going
    around Glasgow studios and playing kits, the Pearls have always impressed me, so it became my choice.

    Luckily they had a VBX in store, and after checking out the colours I wanted, what they had (Concorde Fade)
    was as close as I could have got! So no waiting for shipping either
    I also picked up a Zildjian 18"
    Armand Medium Thin Crash and traded the pedal they give you for an Eliminator double pedal - for
    a little extra cost.

    I'm hugely happy with what I've bought, big cheers go out to the guys at Drum Central Glasgow - hugely
    helpful, and to Pearl for such a fantastic kit - no pro level, but after using a CB for years and going to this
    - I haven't felt so inspired. The bass drums a damn cannon and I haven't even changed heads or tuned
    yet - I cannot wait to see how this baby sounds when I do. Feels like teh inspirations coming back -
    playing feels so much easier and the drums sound so much more alive - what an excellent buy!

    So, I'll stop talking and get on with some pics. The ones shown were prior to putting on splashes, but eveythings
    pretty much there.

                Very nice crash. Asides a splash its my first pro-level cymbal and sounds absolutley excellent - very deep and quite dark but I suppose any 18"'s do when I've only ever used 16"s before.

                  That finish is impressive. I wasn't expecting it. Good choice on the Armand too, they're really nice.

                    Wow, that thing looks great. I have absolutely no pro-level cymbals whatsoever. Boo-hoo........
                    To me, playing music is like sex. You have to be in the right mood in order to perform at your best.

                        Congrats

                        I recently got my concord fade VBX and love it. I was also playing a set of cb's prior to this kit, so I can appreciate how much difference there is. I ordered a 13" to go along with my 10, 12 and 16" and it will be in soon. A fully agree that they sound and play extreamly well, love the punchyness (if thats a word) even with the stock heads. Enjoy the kit man, I know I am enjoying mine. Congratulations.

                        cheers.
                        :) Have you seen juniors grades?
