    Clearly, Crystal Beat continues to give you more! Since reintroducing the seamless Acrylic shell they pioneered over 40 years ago, Pearl offers more sizes, finishes, and sonic value at this price-point than any other drum company.

    The latest custom upgrade to be featured on our seamless Acrylic shell is new Frost Acrylic finish. This hand-coated, texture-blasted interior finish gives the clear exterior of each shell a unique translucent sheen. In contrast, the coating gives Acrylic’s normally brighter tone an added dose of sonic warmth and control.

    “Frost Acrylic finish adds a very unique look and sound to the Crystal Beat line-up,” states Combo R&D Director Raymond Massey. “There is an added visual benefit to Frost Acrylic as well, in that installing the Drumlites dual LED system into these kits makes them ‘glow’ with an almost ethereal effect. These kits are classy, stylish, and blend into practically any visual motif an artist can devise!”

    Crystal Beat Frost Acrylic Acrylic kits will be available in four different pre-configured shell packs and available in component sizes from 8” to 24”.

    To add more power to the mix, Pearl now adds 24x14” bass drums to Crystal Beat’s assortment of component drum choices, and expands the number of available shell packs to five with an added 24/16/13 set-up (CRB543P/C) in all four available finishes.

    I'm really close to pulling the trigger on these since they now have a 24" kick option.

    I have had mine since early August. The drum lights were a struggle (two drums did not have the same hue - white light was a tad more green). Finally got that resolved. Still waiting on a 16" replacement floor tom (arrived cracked). I must admit, it is fun to light them up half way through a show and see the "holy [email protected]" look on peoples faces. I never played them prior to buying and was extremely impressed with how they sounded. I switched the heads to white Ambassador resos and White Emperor batters - sounds killer. I threw a white PS3 on the kick batter and an extra factory Pearl MW head I had laying around on the kick reso (lots of white). Honestly, the 16x15" Crystal Beat floor tom sounds better than my 16x16 Masterworks floor. I went with 8,10,12,14,16 and 22. May add the 13 and push everything over to the left. Would really like to hear how the 18" floor sounds.

    Fun stuff.

    That frosted kit with lights looks great!
    I had a hard time deciding between the frosted and the clear.
    I ultimately went with clear because I think they are cooler without lights, but the frosted with lights definitely looks way better!
