Session Studio Select

Session Studio Select without question is the ultimate value in drums. Offering many of the ground-breaking features normally found on drums that cost substantially more. For over a quarter century, Pearl’s Session Series drums have yielded some of the most harmonically vibrant recorded drum tones ever captured in the studio environment. Returning with a custom upgrade from the boutique-level Masterworks spectrum, new Session Studio Select drums shift to the classic shell blend that made them an artist favorite.

Session Studio Classic is the perfect “Step up” kit for the aspiring musician.

Shell

The Pearl Session Sound originated with the blending of Birch and Mahogany in a hybrid shell that was both warm and resonant, as well as punchy and loud. Returning with an unexpected upgrade, Session Studio Select drum set shifts to a thinner, 5.4mm EvenPly-Six combination of Masters-grade Birch and African Mahogany. Taking a tip from the Masterworks spectrum, Session Studio Select kit increases punch and focus with Pearl’s 60 degree bearing edge, creating a shell with stunning tonal decay.
