Export's Reference-inspired blended shells combines the classic sound of Poplar wood with inner plies of Asian Mahogany wood for strong volume, deep resonance and sustained low-end frequencies. Our Export shells are 6 ply 7.5mm Mahogany/Poplar blended shells.

Opti-Loc Tom Mounts

Export rack toms are equipped with Pearl’s new Opti-Loc Mounting System that features a triangular design with two tension rod attachment points and another through one of the drum’s two air vents. Rubber isolators at all connection points allow the drums to vibrate freely for maximum sustain and resonance while providing absolute and wobble-free performance.

Pearl’s Export Series drums offer a sonically advanced recipe of strategically arranged plies of premium wood to maximize frequency response of every component. As with all Pearl drums, each shell is formed from our legendary SST construction process that uses extreme heat, Precision-cut scarf joints, our proprietary Acoustiglue and over 1000lbs of hydraulic pressure to create the ultimate acoustic air chamber.

Matching Snare Drum

Pearl Export drum set features a matching 14˝ x 5.5˝ snare drum for a perfectly matched voice to your kit.

Low Mass Lugs

Further emphasizing Pearl’s “sound first” philosophy are the new lugs specifically designed for Export drum kit with sound-enhancement in mind. Designed for minimal shell interaction, they have a small footprint and low-mass for maximum resonance and sustain. Their bold look is modern but with a nod to lugs from Pearl’s past.
