    Default Pearl Session Studio Select Reviews

    Seeing as there's almost a complete lack of reviews online about the Session Studio Selects, even from major music media outlets, I was wondering if those who own these drums could share their thoughts.

    How do you like them? Discuss!

    I just picked mine up about a month ago. If I had to sum it up in one word- amazing. Just a nice fat warm sound. Put new Aquarian heads on them and took the time to find where they resonate and holy mother of god. It really sounds like a kit that's just begging to be recorded.

    I would really like to get a small kit of these beauties, like a Zep set. I really want to hit some.

    I'll provide some feedback once mine gets here....*finally* shipping this week....then about a week or two of configuration changes because it's a little bigger than my past kits... :-D Not sure how much I'll get into it before I head to Africa for work....but will chime in.

    Ouch....hopefully you can get it roughly put together and at least get a little play time before you leave.

    I think if I spend any time setting up new drums ahead of being away from home for two weeks, my wife will have a bonfire while I'm gone.... ;-)

    Priorities.... Sometimes ya gotta give a little.... ;-)
