This series has the shell kit for 559 (according to Pearl). If the visions had been this price I think they would have sold a lot more of them.
    I think the price for a 5 piece shell kit will be similar to the Vision series pricing. The $559 price Pearl is throwing around is likely for the 3 piece DMP943XP/C kit.....

    I found these prices on Sweetwater, who do not typically have the lowest available prices on Pearl gear:

    7 piece kit, 8,10,12 toms, 14,16 floor toms, 22 kick, and snare for 899.00

    http://www.sweetwater.com/store/detail/DM7PC-RB/

    5 piece kit, 10,12 toms, 16 floor, 22 kick, and snare for 699.00

    http://www.sweetwater.com/store/detail/DM5PC-SBR/

    That's about 100 less than the visions went for, they were typically 799.99 for a 5 piece kit. Plus they offer the 7 piece kit in these that they did not in visions....that is the best deal. This is a direct competitor for the Tama superstar classic maple kits, same configs, same price points, etc. I am super glad to see it, this is a great value for what you get vs cost.

    And you will be able to get them for less, I have never saw Sweetwater offer as low a prices as some of the other Pearl dealers, like Drumsonsale.com or others like them

    I wish the 22 kick didn't have the tom holders on it, shell pack anyway. That would be a great gig kit.

    I would go with the catalog, there have been multiple mistakes found on the web site with all the new gear and quick changes they tried to make.

    $900 for a Pearl 7 piece maple kit.....that's seems like pretty good pricing and aimed right at the Tama Superstar Classic and Hyperdrive kits.

    what,'s the problem with the blue printed badge?

    i might be insensitive to the badges aesthetic factor, i so don't care about badges , and this new badge design isn't disturbing at all imo lol.

    what i think is there should be an option regarding square or oval badges. the square badge complement well the square lugs, and the oval one goes well with the reference style lugs.

    I have seen badges that are A LOT uglier than all these new ones from Pearl. I agree, I have seen some better, and I still have a soft spot for the older square badges. But I won't let a badge be the only factor that keeps me from a good set of drums of any kind.

    Then again, I am in the minority that likes the Masters "baseball" badges. Like I said, the square masters from the early years is still my favorite, but I like mine pretty good

    I want to see a close up of the lugs. The lighting in the stock photo gives the illusion that they are crooked. I know this is not the case but I'm still interested to see the actual lug design. The same thing caught my eye a few years back on those Dixon Artisan drums.

    Also, R.I.P. to I.S.S. mounts. I think the only product that may still come equipped with them is that one piccolo effect snare and that one timbale.
