    Default *NEW* E-PRO Live videos

    Hey guys, thought I'd share some videos of the E-PRO live I found on YOUTUBE by Gearguruz and Harmony Central.

    To me, it sounds very nice! Good job, Pearl!

    Harmony Central's video: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=O5VDmzx8cUQ

    Gearguruz' video: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=asjyyF0HxC4

    Enjoy!

    Please listen to the first video with headphones. It sounds much better that way. I did not notice one "missed" hit.

    I have to say... I think Pearl "dropped-the-ball" with their announcement video. No disrespect to J.J. or D.C., but two of those NAMM videos were exponentially more impressive than the marketing one put-out by Pearl.

    I would rather see a video with THAT drummer (or ANY drummer) that demonstrated the full range of dynamics on one of the nicer "memory-swap" kits... I am still not convinced it is the "best" e-kit I've ever heard, but I'll say that those amateur videos show more impressive demonstrations of the qualities of the kit and sounds than Pearl's full-blown marketing video.

    I'd love to see them (re)do a good-quality promo video that focusses JUST on the memory-swapped sounds... have one "no name" guy demonstrate all the subtle nuances of the kit - at least better than J.J. or D.C. did.

    Agreed. Lock Raymond, a dedicated e-drum guru, and the E-pro in a room together for several days and try again.

    Exactly how I feel. I am extremely impressed with the sound of these kits!

    This impressed me start to finish. I'm fairly convinced the module can be tweaked to make the pads respond very well. I'm looking forward to trying one out now.

    Just curious. What did you find wrong with the Hi Hat?

    It sounded a bit harsh and one-dimensional, like most e-hats. I've read reviews talking about 1 zone, 2 zone etc. That's just a "spec" to me. What really counts is sound, feel and vibe, just like acoustic drums and cymbals. I'd need to try them before I completely hated them.

    I agree completelyyyyy. The hats were too clangy/high pitched/harsh. Darker hats would've sounded better on that example. Those sounded like 10" zht hats or something.
