The Session Is Back, and Better Than Ever
Pearl's Session series drums were once a mainstay on stages and in studios all over the world. Today's players get to relive the magic of these classic kits via the Pearl Session Studio Classic shell pack. A 6-ply recipe of cutting birch and warm kapur wood succeeds in capturing the punch and depth of the originals. Shells sport Masterworks-grade lacquer finishes and standard features like OptiMount tom holders, which deliver the ultimate in stability and resonance; and air suspension legs, which float floor toms above the ground for a fuller, purer tone. A full set of studio-ready Remo heads makes today's SSCs a sweeter value than ever. Order your Pearl Session Studio Classic through Sweetwater today.
A new spin on a classic
The Session Studio Classic series picks up where the original Pearl Sessions left off. New hybrid shells with 45° bearing edges recall the strong attack and massive low end that made these kits so popular in studios of the '90s and 2000s.
There's magic in these shells
The classic, natural sound of Pearl Session Studio Classics can best be described as supremely resonant. Pearl's 7.5mm, 6-ply birch/kapur shells deliver the stunning attack, midrange clarity, and low-end wallop that, to this day, cause players of all genres to remember the Session series so fondly. Live or in the studio, the Pearl Session Studio Classic shell pack won't disappoint.
OptiMount tom mounting
Pearl's OptiMount suspension system attaches to your toms' tension rods, providing maximum stability while allowing the drum to resonate without restriction. This is just one example of the tone-enhancing hardware that makes today's Session Studio Classics the best so far.
