    Default Piano Black SSC double kick monster

    I just realized I never posted any pics of my #103 Piano Black Session Studio Classics. I’ve been preparing the kit for some gigs later this month and couldn’t help taking a few photos. I’m in awe with her! The look, the sound… the whole package!

    The setup in the pics is as follows:
    10”x7” tom
    13”x9” tom
    16”x14” floor tom
    18”x16” floor tom
    20”x14” gong (Session Studio Select)
    2 x 22”x16” kick

    930-series stands, Eliminator Redline hi-hat stand, Demon Drive pedals, 3500BR throne and a customized ICON rack for the gong.

    I have some black kick reso heads waiting to be put on. Today I installed a KellyShu Flatz with a Shure Beta 91 in the main kick. To make life easier for the sound guy I run a double pedal on a single kick, the other one is just for show

    Cymbals from left to right, all Sabian.
    17” AAXtreme Chinese
    14” HHX Evolution Hats
    18” AAXplosion Crash
    8” AA China Splash
    9” AAX Max Splash
    18” AAXplosion Fast Crash
    20” HH Power Bell Ride
    18” AAXplosion Crash
    14” Paragon Hats
    19” Paragon Chinese

    Thanks! It was an interesting experiment. I really love the 10-13-16 intervals. Makes tuning so easy.

    Great kit! The Sessions really are great value for the money. I think they're the sweet spot for quality to cost in Pearl's line up.

    Amen to that, I completely agree! I always keep telling people that same thing. I especially love these thicker shelled Classics.

    Beautiful kit and set up! Picked up a Reference in #103 Piano Black a few months back. Such a beautiful, timeless finish.

    Thanks man! I absolutely love it! When the 18” floor tom isn’t enough, where do you go? To the gong!! It’s an epic piece of kit.

    No problem! And entirely agree! The only thing I might get tired of is having to dust it constantly but other than that, I’m sure I’ll love it forever. LOL. Still need to order an 18x16 (but I’m holding out hope of being able to get a great deal on one used) and also considering a 14x6.5 Reference Redline snare, even though my kit is just Piano Black with chrome hardware instead of black hardware. I do like my snares being a tad different. I’ve never had a matching snare for my Masters kit. Hahah.

    I love the off-white front heads. It gives your kit some class.
