In this video I am playing on a Pearl Vision Birch VBL 5-piece drum kit. Birch is a wonderful wood for drums and was the wood of choice for many drummers back in the 1970’s and 1980’s. Birch is known for naturally having strong highs, scooped mid range, beefy low end, and is a very desirable sound to have in the recording studio. These drums will definitely work live as well. Their projection and tone can cut through any mix.
Other then drum sticks, cymbals, and a drum throne you get everything you need in one package. The shells are 6-ply 100% Birch and you get 8″ x 10″ and 9″ x 12″ rack toms, a 16″ x 16″ floor tom, and a 18″ x 22″ kick drum. Also included is a 5.5″ x 14″ steel Sensitone snare drum that comes with Pearl’s innovative SR-900 Duo-Motion strainer which can be converted from a side lever throw-off to a Gladstone-type throw-off.
With the drums come some really nice 900 series hardware. You get a snare stand, Hi-Hat stand, boom cymbal stand, straight cymbals stand, and the very smooth P-900 kick drum pedal. The Reference-Look Bridge lugs and kick drum bracket look very cool. You also get Pearl’s innovative and very easy to use I.S.S Tom mounting system.
Don’t forget about the look! These drums look great with the clear lacquer finish over the Birch shell.
If you are looking for a great sounding all Birch drum kit that comes with great hardware all in one package then this could be the option for you!
