    I think the real question isn't if the gear performs well live, it's whether the drummer performs well live. Choose yours based on sound, finish and price, but not necessarily in that order.

    I know English is not your first language and as such, some comments that were made lightly and in jest by others were taken seriously and litterally by you. I'm just saying that replying that someone is "dumb" because they have a sense of humor probably wasn't the smartest thing to do.

    As for your original question, Studio is Pearl's term for saying that there's birch in the shell. Nothing more, nothing less.

    I'll apologize for being 'snarky' but would you prefer sarcasm or someone giving you bad advice? Bottom line, you cannot go wrong with ANY Pearl kit, unless you get it from 3r3r...

    Sarcasm is considered the lowest form of humour for good reason: It is not innocent; on the contrary, its aim is to deliberately belittle. (And apologies for that split infinitive, but my command of English is excellent, and I am with drummaman1 on this: Snarky and smug is not attractive; especially directed to a new member, even if others might find the comment amusing.)

    At any rate, back to the original question: normally the marketing term "studio" refers to the drums being made of birch (in the case of the SSC, with Kapur as well), because birch drums have a naturally EQ'ed sound, slightly punchier and slightly shorter than maple. Whereas Maple is generally considered a touch more favourable for live use because it is slightly warmer. However, that does not mean it can be used only and exclusively for the one or the other; on the contrary, Birch kits are excellent for live use as well as studio.

    ^ he nailed the badging response.

    I own a SSC and only play it live. They are a great sounding kit for the money. Blended birch shells, masters spurs, Super hoops, and upgraded floor tom legs with memory locks. I'm a fan of birch with 2 kits, but I suggest you give them a try. I love mine, and with the added floor tom, I got a $1300 kit for under $1000 new... Hard deal to beat for what you get. Come to think of it, I've never had to mic my SSC live. They have a great punchy well rounded tone.

    It has been extended once before...let's hope they do that again. The free floor tom made it a good deal for the price. If I was able to purchase a new kit right now, these are at the top of my list!

    True... That's the only reason I bought them over the vision was the freebie. I'm glad I did.
