This stunning pre-owned Pearl Reference drum kit in the classy Black Lacquer is overall in excellent condition. The shells do have a few marks in places as well as the bass drum hoops. The marks are only really noticeable when looking closely due to the glossy black finish. All chrome hardware is in excellent condition with no pitting or corrosion etc. Beautiful shells, stunning craftsmanship & lovely warm tone.

Pearl Reference kits are designed with the idea that each individual drum is a unique instrument in it's self. Each drum, whether it be tom, floor Tom, snare or kick drum is individually engineered. Reference Drums use a rotating combo of both 1.6mm and .9mm thick plies in its construction, whilst Reference Pure Drums use only .9mm thick plies. These drum sets are optimally engineered to produce the best possible sound from each individual drum. Taking into account the respective ranges of tone and diameter. 

We start the process by choosing thinner plies of prized Maple, hand selected Birch and rare African Mahogany. While Reference drums use a rotating combination of both 1.6mm and .9mm wood plies in its shell construction, the Reference Pure uses only .9mm thick plies in its construction. The result is a thin, resonant, extremely vibrant yet powerful near-field experience for the player with the wonderful accentuation effects of Birch and African Mahogany placed exactly where they are needed most.

To maintain maximum resonance, Pearl's Reference Pure features our super low-mass elegantly designed STL Tube Lugs and our thin Fat Tone Hoops with our exclusive hemmed and welded edge resulting in a hoop that is both lightweight and extremely strong to further promote maximum resonance.

For those looking for a thin shell alternative to our legendary Reference Series drums, your wait is over.

Reference Pure. Pure Tone. Pure Resonance. Pure Perfection.
