Crystal Beat Is Back!

In 1973, Pearl unleashed Crystal Beat on the drumming world. Now it's back! The Crystal Beat 5-piece shell pack delivers a devastating one-two punch of eye-popping visuals and beastly sonic attack. Crystal Beat's revolutionary seamless construction is molded (instead of rolled), which gives you robust acrylic drums that will stand up to your busiest touring schedule. Pearl outfitted Crystal Beat toms with their Opti-Mount suspension system, which nullifies excessive shell pressure and increases your sustain, while 1.6mm triple-flanged hoops give you the ideal amount of attack without sacrificing the punchy, full-range tone.

Modern acrylic drums

This Pearl Crystal Beat 5-piece shell pack isn't a reissue. Everything - from the molded shells to the hardware - benefits from the latest drum-technology innovation. It all adds up to roadworthy drums that, in addition to looking insanely cool, sound totally killer. Whack the toms. Fat and punchy with powerful projection, they'll cut right through the thickest prog metal mix. And that kick. From country to fusion, it's got the juice to drive whatever you're playing. These amazing drums have made many converts among Sweetwater drummers. We affectionately call them "Crystal Beast."

Great kit for the stage!

I received my 5 piece clear Crystal Beat kit about a week ago. This thing is definitely eye catching! After tuning up the drums, setting it up, and spending some time playing, the first thing I noticed was how loud they are! Especially the attack. If you are playing music with fast tom fills, this is definitely the right kit to buy. Even with the cheap, stock Pearl brand heads it comes with, it sounds great! After playing a Gretsch Renown kit for the last 7 years, my biggest concern was taking a step backwards in quality of tone. Admittedly the sole reason for purchasing this kit was for stage presence. That concern was gone in 5 minutes of playing. Its definitely a different tone, but its not worse. Tuning these drums was easy! Probably the easiest kit I've ever tuned. The sweet spot was not hard to find and the shells hide nasty overtones easily. I can't wait to gig with this kit to hear it through a PA. The only issue I have, and its minor, is that even though the toms still sound great with the cheap heads, the kick batter side head needs replaced immediately with something that has a foam ring. Being that this is a clear kit, you can't have any goofy pillows or blankets hidden in the kick drum. Also, no hole on the front head of the kick is inconvenient, but I have a tool to fix that. These are just minor concerns. Overall, 5 stars.

My dream set mostly....

When I bought my Gretsch Catalina what I really wanted was an acrylic set. The problem is Crush was the only one making the set and it was clear. I really wanted opaque or frosted white. This way the led’s inside would diffuse across the whole drum and I could hide the strips easier. The “frost” up close is see-through. You can’t see through the whole drum but to the inside from up close; so not as dense as say a shower door that is frosted. But from far away you can’t tell until the lights kick on. The set is heavy and I love the tone; that is after I changed the heads. As for the lack of the last star, this wasn’t Sweetwater’s fault. They were most helpful with all my questions and the ordering. It was Pearls fault. If I am buying my dream set; I want my dream set. I wanted black hardware, something Pearl offers on other drum sets. But they refused to work with me. So my 5 star drum set is only a 4 star until I buy aftermarket hardware. To be honest, if this was an option, I would have bought 2 sets; Frosted with Black hardware for my rock band and then the Ruby Red for my Punk band.
