    Default Pearl Midtown - new in the arsenal

    I recently was looking for a kit that would be easier to carry (lighter load) and still would look good and most importantly would sound good as well. Gigging a couple of times a week, often in small venues, A smaller kit was needed. After doing my homework, I got the Midtown. In a nutshell, "Wow"!! And all I got from fellow musicians were compliments on the sound and looks. Thanks Pearl!!

    These little kits intrigue me.

    Are you using a cajon for a throne?

    To coin a phrase... " That looks like fun to play!"

    But seriously, I've looked into them. All I've ever heard was positive things on the Pearl kit. Someone on here did a review or shared a review.

    I think it was CompactDrums. Between the Pearl- Ludwig & what have you.

    I thought of selling my Sessions kit because it just stays bagged now that I have the MCX.


    Congrats on the kit. Looks great!!!

    I actually use a cajon as a throne, depending on the gig.

    its a really good idea, I would consider it if my home made cajon was a bit more comfortable lol.... maybe when I get a real one I will try it out for a jam setting or something like that.

    welcome on the forum my friend. long time PDF'er from morin heights (near st sauveur) here.

    you'll love this pearl series. a 16 '' BD is for sure easier to fit in the car than a 22 haha. how do you like the BD's riser ? is it quite stable ?

    actually, surprisingly stable. In fact, from behind the kit, you hardly realize how that it a 16" kick

    for cocktails, weddings and small venues the mid town series seems like the perfect sized kit. kit's foot print looks small on your pic.

    do you get to play in the city mostly?

    Glad you're using the Midtown Series kit...

    Making sure you know about our Tall Boy Cajon which is 21" tall (versus the usual 19") making it better to use as a drumset throne.
