    I use my Vision VX kit. (olive green) and i gig 1-3 shows every week. However i have replacement heads ready, cases, a rack, and a luggage container to hold the stands. Nothing has gone wrong beside me forgetting cymbals one time. Great sounding kits for gigs. especially with the correct mics and micing technique! \m/

    had about 1-2 gigs a month for about 6 months, during the time using my VX. i put lug locks on them so that they would keep tune better throughout the show, not that it desperately needed it tho... and i bought an optimount for my one rack tom which helped out the tuning and resonance . took a bit of a beating with nicks nd scratches here and there, but they were solid drums that sounded good .

    Been gigging with my 2010 VMX's for about 2 years solid, over 150 gigs with not a single problem or issue. Words cannot describe how impressed I am with the quality of these drums

    I use my Pearl Vision VBA Artisan II for gigs at least once every other month. It is fairly light and with the memory locks its pretty fast set-up and tear down. I have it in a 10'', 12",14" Snare 16" FT, and 22" Kick. The guy at Guitar Center said the color was a Guitar Center Limited Edition. Only reason I believe him is because I haven't seen it anywhere online. Its the Eucalyptus Fade.

    I use mine for regular gigs and practice at a few different locations with no major problems I marked my drum carpet to make sure setups were quicker but my drums are virgin bass drums so it gets difficult without a rack but I manage I use a 2 year old ? Set of vbx's with two 22" bass drums with Aquarian sk10 and ec2's on all toms with stock resos

    I play out with my VLX pretty often. Aside from the occasion scuff or scratch, I'd say the experience in playing them out has been very positive.

    (Note: I got the VLX instead of a Masters precisely because I knew it would take a beating over time and did t wanna hurt so much over it).

    I've had the chance to play with this kit is all sorts of places with different setups and combinations. She's always had great projection, presence, tone, response, and character. Even with 3 year old heads, (Evans EC2) she still has what it takes to give me the best.

    Always received the great reviews for the look and sound and I'm proud to say it's brought a few local guys into the Pearl family after having the chance to play mine.
