    Could you be a little more specific as to your questions/concerns?

    I own a GLX and an MLX kit (both maple w lacquer finishes) but not a DX or DLX. The DX will be a wrap (DLX would be lacquered) finish. I believe they are a blend of mahogany, birch and "lamin hardwood". I'd say, go play them for a bit and if they sound good (and the price is right) go for it.

    A guy I know has a DX professional drumset and he claims it's all birch.

    Pearl marketing appears to contradict the "guy you know".

    And, Gene Okamoto also chimed in many threads ago (prior to his retirement)

    Guessing it is or is very much like Luan, just spelled differently. I assume it is a shortening of the word "laminate".
