Beautiful, light and with a lot of potential
peter.fuhrhans, 19.03.2018
For performances, I was looking for a light drum kit. After much deliberation, I opted for the Pearl Decade Maple, in the studio version with a 20 "bass drum.

As usual, the order was promptly delivered by Thomann.
The set arrived very compact and well packaged.

The setup was as simple as usual. But it was noticeable that the kettle burrs on the bass drum were not flawless.
There were small cuts with burrs on both the impact and resonance sides. But I simply fixed these with wood glue.
The Tom-holding rosette is not completely mounted horizontally. However, these two points are negligible and I think that it does not look better with other drums in this price range.
Nevertheless, I only award 4 stars for processing.

I decided to choose a set with the Tom mount bolted to the bass drum.
A solution with undrilled bass drum may be cooler and perhaps even better, but it takes much longer to set up the set.
In addition, then more stable pelvic or Tom stand required.

Although the Spannböckchen and FloorTom rosettes are kept fairly simple and certainly won no design prize, but they fulfill their purpose and weigh little.
All tension screws are light, but I have greased them and provided them with the "Hendrix Drums Sleeved Washers white".
The Tom kettles are all well made. I just tightened the fixing screws of the Spannböckchen a little tighter.
The 1.6mm thin and therefore lightweight hoops support the open sound of the boiler.

What a pity I find that the lower Pearl series only use the simple Opti-Mount mounting system, where the lower part is bolted to the boiler via a rubber buffer.
Sonically, that's unlikely to matter. Visually but already. Technically, this works very well and the toms are kept safe and sound.
I briefly tuned and played the Remo UT-fur factory skins. Reasonably tuned, they sound pretty neat.
But since I prefer a very round sound without much attack, I changed the tom-skins. As a batter head Remo Skyntone and as a resonant coat Remo Diplomat Clear skins are used. With the resonance skins I could have kept the factory skins. Nice side effect: the Remo USA skins are significantly lighter than the Remo factory skins from China.

At the bass drum I kept both Remo works' skins. Nice that the resonance-fur is already provided with a hole and a damping cushion enclosed.
For the hoop a sticker is there, so that the pedals leaves no scratches. But I still screwed a Pearl Rim Saver.

I tuned and played the snare shortly. She did not convince me with the factory skins and esp. The factory snare carpet. But she did not have to, because it was clear from the beginning that I would continue to use my Mapex Velvetone snare - even if it is considerably heavier.
I later upgraded the Decade Maple Snare with a Remo Diplomat Coated batter head and Remo Ambassador Snare Resonance head. The snare carpet has been replaced by a narrower PureSound carpet. So equipped, I now use the snare on the second set in the rehearsal room and do not always have to carry the Velvetone snare around.
Due to the other skins and the changed carpet, the Decade Maple Snare reacts much more sensitively and sounds pretty neat.

The included hardware is very solid and not hard at all. But since I already own a lightweight Pearl Flatbase hardware set, the set hardware set wandered into the rehearsal room.
However, the simple 930er foot machine then has won a regular place and thus displaced my aged Iron Cobra.
From the feel of both foot machines are quite equal - after I have rebuilt the Pearl pedals a little bit (footboard offset forward and the orange use of the pulley away).
The Pearl foot machine weighs but about 400g less and that makes for the hardware bag very positively noticeable.

All in all, the set looks very high quality and the matte surface finish I like very much.
In the slightly modified version, the set sounds really great.
After several appearances I can also say that it was worthwhile to switch to a lighter set.
Unfortunately, I like the set so much that I would like to take it with me to every rehearsal ...

Class, horny !!
22.08.2016
The drums were bought for my son, he is on the way to the advanced drummer.
First of all, the Pearl looks extra-class, everything sits and makes a very high-quality impression. The sound is super, warm, has wums and is very powerful, compared to its old debut (Premier) are the worlds. Construction and voices also went slightly, something press, Feintuning, everything facilitated by the good hardware. After a couple of months we are still looking forward to the set, a great purchase. A professional drummer said that you can play the next 20 years on it and is also very enthusiastic about price performance.
Clear purchase recommendation!
