Pearl Vision birch 5-piece drum kit in orange sparkle
A Pre-loved, full-sized, birch kit from Pearl made in the same factory as the Pearl Masters Series.
The Pearl Vision is now discontinued but these models are sought-after for their superior maple or birch shell construction and superb sound. This example is shells only. You will need to add cymbals and hardware. The bass drum shows the typical Vision Wrap crinkle at the top but this does not affect the sound at all. The toms are all in excellent condition. Floor tom legs, tom arms and ISS-mounts for the toms are all included. Please note: the image of the full kit is from the Pearl archive for illustrative purposes only. The image if the tom is from the set available for purchase.
We would recommend that you go for a complete head change (batter & resonant) so the kit sounds at its best. If you have this done at the time of delivery, you will not pay an extra service charge. Details of the service are here.
The following information is taken from the Pearl Archives:
After thorough research, Pearl discovered that the inner ply of a drum shell has the greatest effect on the tonal quality of the drum. Therefore, putting Birch on the inner ply of these drums gives them a naturally EQ'd, punchy tone with enhanced projection and sustain. 6 plies in the rack tom shells and 8 plies in the floor tom and bass drum shells provide an amazingly balanced sound, unprecedented for this category.
