    Lugs are different, Stainless lug bolts on Masters, better quality finish, better heads, I think there are more differences, but that's all I can think of now.

      I play MMX and they are 4 plie maple. I belive the srx are a compozet shell maple and mahogny, I dont know if that makes
      MMX beter or not but it is a defference. I think that the fact that there are mor choices is the mane reason they coast more and
      by the way the 4 plie shell in my opion sounds a lot beter.

        My mistake they are all maple shells but only in 6 ply and there are no other wood choices. The Masters offers maple, birch and
        mahogny.

          I'd consider the sessions a pro kit. The concessions that were made to keep the pricing modest are minor and really do not effect the performance of the kit. I even like the stock Pro-Tone heads.
          Did I say that out loud??

            Wood
            100% maple, the same quality maple is used on SRX/MMX/MRX/MSX

            Cosmetics of the wood
            The inside ply of the MMX/MRX is used on the outside ply of the SRX.
            The middle ply of the MMX/MRX is used on the middle and inside plies of the SRX.

            Outside finishing
            The Masters finish is air cured and takes 7 days to complete. The SRX finish is ultraviolet cured and takes a fraction of the time to finish compared to Masters.

            Shell color choices
            Unique colors for each series.

            Hardware color choices
            SRX = chrome plated only.
            Masters = chrome plated, black chrome plated, gold plated, or satin chrome plated.

            Bass drum lugs
            SRX = 8 lugs (22” bass drums)
            Masters = 10 lugs (22” bass drums)

            Bass bracket
            SRX = BB-3 mounted on the drum.
            Masters = choice of with or without BB-3.

            Bass drum claws
            SRX = D-050.
            Masters = D-054 with rubber sleeve to protect the BD hoop.

            Hoops
            SRX = SuperHoop II.
            Masters = MasterCast.

            Tom Heads
            SRX = ProTone 2-ply batters and ProTone clear resonators.
            Masters = Remo clear Ambassador, top and bottom.

            Bass Heads
            SRX = ProTone P3-type
            Masters = Remo P3.

            Tom mounting system
            OptiMount on SRX/Masters.

            Tension rods
            SRX = steel.
            Masters = stainless steel.

            Lugs
            SRX = Session lugs
            Masters = Masters bridge-style.

            Lug gaskets
            Molded rubber is used on SRX/Masters.

            Tom arms
            SRX = TH-98I.
            Masters = TH-100I (recommended)

            Floor tom legs
            Identical

            BD spurs
            Identical

              I appreciate your question in that I was curious myself and have asked. And Gene did a good job of answering.
              But, from the tone of your question and from other threads where you put OCDP on a pedistal compared with Pearl (besides the giant OCDP logo in your sig), I have to question whether you are genuinely curious or just trying to be a pain in the *** about it.
              The SRX is a great way for a drummer to get a fantastic Maple set with known/respected Pearl quality. One of the beauties of Pearl is that they have it in their capacity to manufacture and sell lines of sets that are quality and are geared towards all walks of the economic life.
