    Default Ordered a new SSC kit!

    After some very careful consideration I finally pulled the trigger and ordered a second kit to play at home.

    Session Studio Classic, #103 Piano Black
    24”x15” kick
    10”x7” tom
    13”x9” tom
    16”x14” floor tom
    18”x16” floor tom

    I went with some unusual, Ray Luzier inspired sizes for my rack toms. I also plan to shorten the 13” tom by one lug length to about 7,5” depth. More customization is also being planned, but more on that later

    I really wanted to get the #151 Platinum Mist finish but Pearl Europe wouldn’t allow it... I also requested a 20” gong drum but wasn’t allowed that either. But all in all I’m pretty happy with what I’m getting. Now all I have to do is to wait 6 months as SSC isn’t stocked anymore.

    I really dig the sound of the Birch-Kapur shells. A friend of mine uses Studio Classics as his primary touring kit and they sound absolutely fantastic live. And for the price they are pretty much unbeatable!

    Are they charging more for the kit because it's a special order? Are these available to US customers???? If so, I would love to get my hands on a copper sparkle kit. That was my favorite finish in that line. I wish they kept it for the session select

    No, the price is the same. If not cheaper, or so it feels I’d imagine they’re available in US too... it’s a real bummer that Europe never got any of those nice finishes, only Piano Black, Sequoia Red and Antique Ivory. Platinum Mist was my absolute favorite, but couldn’t get it even if I tried. I might end up wrapping the SSC kit to make it more special.

    that is also an option , if i cant find the right sizes new,
    i could just ebay everything and re wrap ..but that would be a last resort...currently,
