Pearl Vision SST Birch Drum Set

Written by Jazz Brown

No question about it, small drum sets are in demand right now, and with the vision set Pearl offers just that. Small and light not only means easy to transport, but also the ability to play a real drum set in very cramped conditions. Of course, the sound has to be right.

With its compact 16 “× 14” bass drum, 10 “tom, 13” floor tom and 13 “snaredrum, the Pearl vision Drumset offers exactly the features transport friendliness and space-saving design. And it looks – also thanks to the wooden strips on the bass drum – for a “real” drum set. If you then combine it with the new Pearl Flat-Base hardware of the series 150, the picture is really round.

The basis of the vision drums are poplar kettles, a relatively soft wood that provides a pleasantly warm and quite deep fundamental sound, which is certainly an important thing with small drums. Tip: When changing the coat, please always place the cups on a soft surface (molton, carpets, etc.).

This protects the burr and is particularly true here, as the wood is just a little softer than z. B. Maple or Birch is. Incidentally, the boilers of the vision drum set are also produced using Pearl’s own SST process, just like the top series, and the production quality is correspondingly high. The boilers have the lowest tolerances in diameter and wall thickness. The burrs are clean cut and set plane-parallel, which is already good conditions for an easy and precise tuning.

The foil in the subtly elegant “Black Cherry Glitter” is neatly stretched and perfectly glued in the overlapping area. The film is very thin and does not wear much. To the boiler edges are left about 8 mm space. The hardware is light, functional and neatly chrome plated.

With six tuning screws per side of the drum, all drums except the snare drum, which offers eight tuning screws per side of the fur. The tuning screws and threads of the sleeves run neatly into each other, and the bearing surfaces on the hoops and claws of the bass drum are also in order. In order to increase the tuning stability, you should install additional plastic washers, this does not cost the world and makes life even easier (at least when tuning).

The snare carpet pickup works great and makes a professional impression. It can be adjusted filigree and switch quietly, in addition, the terminal blocks can be operated with the tuning key.

The snare carpet is attached with a plastic band. The Tom is flexibly suspended by the “Opti-Loc” mount, so that its full resonance unfolding is possible. The 7/8 “Tom holder finds its place on the bass drum in a delicate rosette, so that does not weigh much extra weight on the bass drum. The bass drum can be moved through the lift in a slightly elevated position, so you can leave your bass drum pedal in the setting for a larger bass drum.
