It has been five years since Pearl changed the drummer's perception of what a high-end kit should be. Since Reference's introduction, the M.I.P.A.-Award winning drumset has been used in the best studios and the biggest stages by the world's greatest drummers. Reference drums are optimally engineered to produce the best sound possible within its respective tonal range and diameter. No other drumset in the world uses the proven woods of Maple, Birch, and Mahogany in harmony with optimized shell thicknesses and bearing edges to product the ultimate drumset without compromise. To celebrate the first five years of Reference, Pearl will be releasing a limited Anniversary edition Reference kit in the summer of 2010. Please visit http://www.pearldrum.com/
