The Pearl Vision is now discontinued but these models are sought-after for their superior maple or birch shell construction and superb sound. This example is shells only. You will need to add a snare drum, cymbals and hardware. The bass drum shows the typical Vision Wrap crinkle at the top but this does not affect the sound at all. The toms are all in excellent condition. Floor tom legs, tom arms and ISS mounts for the toms are included. Please note the image is from Pearl for illustrative purposes only. 

We always recommend that your have this kit delivered, set-up and tuned professionally by Steve, preferably with new heads top and bottom. The additional costs for this are as follows:   

Delivery, set-up and tune with existing heads - £90

Complete head change and EQ - £190

The following information is taken from the Pearl archives

After thorough research, Pearl discovered that the inner ply of a drum shell has the greatest effect on the tonal quality of the drum. Therefore, putting Birch on the inner ply of these drums gives them a naturally “EQ’d,” punchy tone with enhanced projection and sustain. 6 plies in the rack tom shells and 8 plies in the floor tom and bass drum shells provide an amazingly balanced sound, unprecedented for this category.
