Pearl says…”A testament to Pearl’s 75 year odyssey of drum quality and advancement, Pearl President Series Deluxe drums are a modern take on a favorite from yesterday. Culled from the very origins of The World’s Largest Drum Company, President Deluxe Series revives the warm subtlety of our original tone wood for a traditionally full, controlled playing experience. Like driving a classic car with a supercharged engine, President Series Deluxe plays like a vintage kit without the shortcomings of yesterday’s fittings. Our original “Battleship” lug has been recast and each drum features adjustable tone mufflers, allowing sonic variety from subdued to bombastic. In addition, the elegant identity of Pearl’s original script badge and classic bass drum logo augment the swirling flash of our new Ripple covered finishes.”
