„I got my first Pearl-Kit in 1976… and it will be Pearl forever.

I own and play different Pearl-Drums from all decades:

Pearl-President, Wood-Fiberglass, BLX, MLX, Session Elite, BRX, MRX,

Reference Pure…

As a working drummer in different styles from Rock to Jazz I need drums

that fit in all these different musical situations.

And one of the most important things on the road is reliable hardware.

So in my working life Pearl-Drums are like good old friends.

Never change a winning set!”
