The Pearl Export is the best-selling drum kit of all time and, with its consistent shell construction and belt & braces approach to hardware engineering, it's not hard to see why. This example dates from the late 1990s and has deeper tom shells to give a fatter sound. This will appeal to drummers who prefer the louder and more heavy styles. The shells are in good condition. The hardware shows extensive pitting on the chrome but this does not affect the sound at all. 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 - £187

Taking its cue from Pearl’s award winning Reference Series, Export puts sound first by blending premium Poplar and rich Asian Mahogany for an incredibly lush and full bodied tone. Experience the new standard in its class… experience Export!
