NAMM 2013: Pearl's Export Kit Makes Triumphant Return

NAMM 2013: Pearl announce all-new Export kits
Pearl's New Export Kits at NAMM 2013
Making a much heralded return in 2013, the mighty Pearl Export Series has been retooled with Pearl's Superior Shell Technology to provide the award winning Export sound at an affordable price.

Made of 6 plys of blended Poplar and Asian Mahogany, Export’s 7.5mm shells feature 45 degree bearing edges and are paired with 1.6mm triple flanged hoops which allow the Export's deeper, richer voice to sing at every attack.

Pearl's Export Series features Pearl's new Opti-Loc tom mounts which attach via a triangular design with two tension rod attachment points and another one through one of the drum's two air vents, providing 100% stability without restricting resonance. Each Export Series kit comes with a matching 6 ply 14"x5.5" snare drum.

Also revamped for 2013, Export kits now sport a modern look with Pearl’s low-mass lug designed for less shell contact and greater resonance. Accompanied by Pearl's all new 830 Series Hardware,Demonator Pedal and Hi-hat stand.

For 2013 Export Series is back with a vengeance. Export Series is available in five amazing stocking finishes: #21 Smokey Chrome, #31 Jet Black, #33 Pure White, #91 Red Wine, and #702 Electric Blue Sparkle.
