    These are completely awesome. I feel they should be marketed to schools as well. Around here the high school band plays during football and basketball games. Each night I see them drag the kit into the gym or pack them out to the out side bleachers, do their thing and then pack them back. The smaller kit and the bags would make the process SOOOO much easier. I think Pearl has a home run w/ these!

    Still lots to love about Pearl for me. We go waaaayyyy back! My recent experience soured me a little, but when I factor in the positive experiences I have had owning, playing and gigging Pearl drums and hardware. There will always be a soft spot.

    Love my Mapex gear, but I would NEVER part with my Pearl hardware. For sure interested in this Midtown rig with the bags!!

    Always love small kits and these look great.

    I love the two bag idea as wekk,

    I also love the single tom post on the BD (which pearl doesn't always do) and a nice mounting system.

    I wonder which big maker will be the first to offer a nesting kit? 16/13/10 is ideal sizes.

    Seems there's a growing trend towards portability these days - which for a non driving drummer is great.
    I play Panda Percussion and Istanbul Mehmet Cymbals with negligible talent.

    At any time let x be the number of kits I own, then x+1 is the number of kits I want.
