Based on the original Vision formula, VSX drumsets feature blended Birch Ply shells with 6/8 technology. Lower frequencies require greater energy to project equally to match the high frequencies produced by smaller drums. Vision’s combination of 6 ply rack toms and 8 ply floor toms and bass drums deliver a dynamically balanced sound. Pearl offers 9 standard VSX configurations, more than any other drum manufacturer. VSX comes standard with a brushed steel SensiTone snare drum and award-winning 900 Series hardware. VSX drumsets are available in 6 Ultra-Exotic wrapped coverings.
6/8 Shell Construction
6 plies in the rack tom shells and 8 plies in the floor tom and bass drum shells provide an amazingly balanced sound, unprecedented for this category.
Birch/Basswood shell with Birch inner ply
After thorough research, Pearl discovered that the inner ply of a drum shell has the greatest effect on the tonal quality of the drum. Therefore, putting Birch on the inner ply of these drums gives them a naturally “EQ’d,” punchy tone with enhanced projection and sustain.
Professional two ply heads
Two ply heads are easier to tune, and deliver a full, powerful sound right out of the box. Vision is the only series in its category to be packaged with two ply heads.

Optimized Shell Configuration
Based on the original formula, VSX and VX drumsets feature blended Birch Ply shells with 6/8 technology. Vision’s combination of six-ply rack toms and eight-ply floor toms and bass drums deliver a dynamically balanced sound. The extra thickness in the floor toms and bass drums gives those drums the same projection as the higher frequency rack toms, resulting in the best sounding kit in its price range.
SST Shell Design
Vision Series offers a sonically advanced recipe of strategically arranged plies of premium wood to maximize frequency response of every component. As with all Pearl drums, each shell is formed from our legendary SST construction process that uses extreme heat, Precision-cut scarf joints, our proprietary Acoustiglue and over 1000lbs of hydraulic pressure to create the ultimate acoustic air chamber.
The fundamental thought behind our Award-winning Reference Series is to optimize every component of your kit to respond to its full potential within the confines of its respective frequency range. This is achieved through the usage of premium wood composition and shell thickness via strategic variance in the type and amount of plies. This same spirit of innovation is now available to the emerging musician in the all new Vision Series.
