    I have an SSC in the sequoia red and the pictures do not do this finish justice at all, in person it looks fantastic.

    Most of the vids I've seen they make the mistake, IMO, of putting pinstripes to make a vid. This link below is one of the only vids I've seen that has coated Amb's on and this kit show's more potential of what these drums can sound like. Pearl should just ship them with the Amb's.

    ...Lucky me. I happened to find this beautiful, original owner 4-pc in Cranberry Fade this week on Craigslist for $400!
    My first accoustic set & dang, they are so pleasant to hit on, makes you want to keep practicing! As with most beautiful drums, photos rarely do them credit. I'm one happy camper! ��

    Hi people,

    I read the thread about the SSC kit. Unfortunately, on my side, I have come to the conclusion, after trying all the good tuning options, drumheads, that the 24 "x 15" bassdrum lacks Bottom End. Many sound engineers (in a pro situation) have told me the same thing: not enough low-end. Yes there is a lot of attack but nothing more. I tried backline bassdrum (from another brand) with the size 24 x 18 "and it was completely another story ... positive! I now know that Pearl has revamped the series and returned with the Session Studio Select ... Should- I inform Pearl directly about this problem? I don't want to be negative because the toms still sound good ... but all the reviews I read on the net report the same kick low end issue! What do you think about that situation. Just to let you know, I am a pro touring / studio drummer. Thanks!

    I love my Pearl master studio❤️❤️❤️
