    Default Rejoining the Pearl Family!

    Hello guys!

    Havent logged in for many years but finally did, and for a good reason... Im rejoining the Pearl family!

    Since I last posted Ive been through two sets of Yamaha Absolute Hybrid Maples, Jade Green Sparkle and Polar White, but at the end of last year I totally lost my will to play. My band wasnt as active as it used to and finally the long Finnish winter took its toll and I decided a break was needed. I started selling my gear, downsizing as much as I dared to, and now eight months later Im finally ready to press the restart button!

    Again I contacted my trusted dealer looking for something new but inexpensive to spark my interest. Ever since I had my Masterworks I had always wanted a Gong Drum and decided that now after 10 years Im finally going to get one! First I thought Crystal Beat might do the trick but despite offering Rocket Toms and Concert Toms, a Gong Drum wasnt available. What a bummer! Thats when I saw a picture of a Nicotine White Marine Pearl Session Studio Select Gong Drum and without any hesitation placed the order! Now all I must do is wait. I should be getting the main part of the kit in around two weeks but the 14 Floor Tom and the Gong Drum will take 4-6 months.

    Here are the full specs:

    Session Studio Select, #405 Nicotine White Marine Pearl
    22x16 Bass Drum
    20x14 Gong Drum
    10x7 Tom
    12x8 Tom
    14x14 Floor Tom
    16x16 Floor Tom

    A second kick and a 14x8 snare will be added later in the future if I still feel like I need them.

    Feels good to back here with you good people! Cant wait to get my hands on some awesome Pearls once again!

    Thanks guys! I can’t wait to get it set up! I promise to take lots of pics. Just yesterday I got a word that the 14” floor tom and gong drum might arrive in less than 3 months. lets hope that is true! Had a discussion about the second kick too and that might be happening sooner than I anticipated

    I’m afraid you’re right. Such a shame
