PRESIDENT SERIES PHENOLIC KIT INCLUDING MATCHING SNARE DRUM
A TRULY HISTORIC ORIGINAL WITH IMMACULATE VINTAGE STYLE.
Introduced in 1966, the rare sonic presence of President Series Phenolic drums returns in a highly limited collector’s edition drum set for Pearl’s 75th Anniversary celebration.
The Tone and Feel of the Original with a Modern-Classic Retool.
Few “vintage” instruments have the rare presence of Pearl’s original professional drum set.
Introduced in 1966, Pearl’s President Series was the first drum set to utilise the unique benefits of hermetically pressurised Phenolic shells. The loud, piercing resonance of these thermo-layered, solid shells was renown for their ability to cut through the mix with undeniable clarity. Original President Series kits have since found an avid audience among collectors and players, as their sound is not comparable with the mainstay woods of modern drum making.
An Uncommonly Historic Sound.
In celebration of Pearl’s history of quality and craftsmanship, President Series Phenolic shells make a triumphant return in a Limited Edition, 75th Anniversary drum set. Exuding pristine vintage style with focused updated function, the hallmark appointments that made original President Series unique (like our “Battleship” lug, internal tone mufflers, and adjustable “Gullwing” style bass drum spurs,) are present, and visual touches like Pearl’s elegant script badge and classic bass drum logo add to its old school swagger.
Authenticated Anniversary Edition.
Each President Series Phenolic Drum Set comes with a Certificate of Authenticity signed by Pearl Musical Instruments President and CEO Max Iishi, to commemorate three quarters of a Century of percussive innovation.
This official Anniversary Edition drum set is extremely limited by region.
