    Maybe he's been playing since he's 5? If this is the case, he probably is in Uni, with little money to buy a Ref

      Dude, I have been playing drums for over 30 years and Pearl for 15 of those years. I own and love my 1990 Exports!
      Refs are awesome, no doubt, but we get what works for us.

        I disagree with the statement that Visions and Refs are equal..and You are just po'ed because we got William Shatner!

          Agreed - if they were equal, then they would be at the same price point.

            I figure, if they were equal drums, I'd go with the Visions. Think of the names.

            Vision: sounds powerful

            Reference: doesn't a reference normally tell you somewhere else to go?

            It's important to play the spaces. Silence can speak so loudly.

              what the hell is so wrong about a Vision kit anyways? Great wood great hardware and for a great price. Get real.
              Hi-five :P
              My kit:
              Pearl Vision VSX (Gun metal sparkle)
              5-1/2" x 14.5" SensiTone snare
              22" x 18" bass drum
              10" x 8" tom drum
              12" x 9" tom drum
              14" x 11" tom drum
              16-1/2'' x 17'' floor tom drum
              2 crashes, 2 rides, 1 splash

                I think Pearl realized that the Sessions were essentially Masters with a lower price tag and pulled the line in favor of the Visions because there is a larger gap in special little extras, if you will. And early Sessions were part Luuan where the later ones were full maple or birch.
