        Nothing wrong with Pearl drums....they are like any other company..you buy cheaper kit, its cheap. Buy a higher end kit and they are great. Ive never had stand failure, but have had a couple of theyre uni lock arms not hold at times. My good set "" is a masters custom maple, they have been great drums and have held up well, even tho gigging heavily since I purchased them i 96'.........

                I owned a Masters Custom maple kit and still have a Masters Studio birch kit. I definitely liked the sound of the maple over the birch. Mic'd up, the maple kick was absolutely wonderful. Both kits were gigged heavily with no issues. I will echo kmart that Pearl's stands are sub-standard and will never waste money on them again.

                        Jake bought several of Pearl's high end cymbal stands a few years ago. They became so badly dimpled from the tom mount that you couldn't raise or lower them. Never had that problem with Tama hardware.

                            I've had a couple of pieces of Pearl gear over the years. My Chad Smith snare drum that I got about 12 years ago, and two single-braced boom stands that I got about 15 years ago. The stands are still going strong and the snare sounds great.



                            When I was in the market for a new kit 15 months ago, I checked out the Tama Silverstars, the Gretsch Catalina birch, the Yamaha Stage Custom Birch, and the Pearl Vision VBL. I wanted a natural wood finish, so I eliminated the Tama and the Gretsch. The main reason I chose the Yamaha kit was because it came with a matching birch snare and the Pearl came with a steel snare.
                            Here's a tip - if you put out some horrible lo-fi recording that sounds like a Gorilla banging an antelope while using a vacuum with a bad belt drive to suck up a floor full of marbles and silverware - and folks don't line up in mass numbers to hop on your wagon... maybe it ain't us who don't "get it". - THX1138
