    You mention that 24" is "the only way to go." I kinda agree with this because my 24" sounds better than my 22" or 20". Sadly, it rarely leaves the practice space because it takes up so much room on stage and is a PITA to move. Part of the problem is that the drummer is a little lazy.

    Here is a good representation of how these drums perform, as always head choice and tuning can change how they sound as well. I have mine outfitted with clear vintage emps on the tom batter with clear ambassadors on the reso, ps3 front and back on the kick with no muffling

    ^ I've listed to that many times wondering if it was a "true" representation of the kit -- thanks for confirming for me!

    After having these for a bit of time and tweaking them I have to say they were a great buy. Really versatile drums that are quite a bargain considering the street prices, well done Pearl! I'm not sure they are louder than a normal wood shell drum, though, definitely more articulate. My reason for my initial purchase of these was to get a vintage sound without buying a vintage kit, this they have in abundance.

    I love mine, I ordered the 12 inch tom and the 14 inch floor tom as well to make mine a 2 up 2 down. Where did you get yours????

    After a three year stint with a Gretsch Catalina Jazz kit, I've decided to give Pearl another chance and placed an order for a 12-14-20 Piano Black WF series shell pack. Has anyone else tried these smaller WF kits with a coated/clear Ambassador head combo for jazz and low volume gigs? I'll be staying with my Pearl snares..6.5" BB and 5" Aluminum Sensitones with tube lugs. Not sure which will be the best for the WFs but it will be fun finding out. Hopefully I'll be happy to be back playing 100% Pearl soon!

    The shells came in last week and the heads and hardware today. Wish I could have gone with Pearl on the flat hardware but they weren't yet in stock. The Gibraltar hardware I've been using has held up really well and it's competitively priced. Batter heads are coated Powerstroke 3 and resos are coated Diplomat. Coated Pearl Pro-tone reso with EQ ring..no ports or internal padding needed. 6.5" Sensitone BB snare with Diplomat snare side. Cymbals are K Rarities - 22", 19", 14".
