An e-drum kit featuring real shells and drum hardware that can be converted to an acoustic kit.
The Pearl e-Pro Hybrid electronic acoustic drum set includes brass cymbals, a 22" x 12" kick; 10" x 6-1/2", 12" x 7", and 14" x 8" rack toms; a 14" x 4-1/2" snare; 13" chokeable crash; 3-zone 16" chokeable ride; and a 12" hi-hat.
Pearl e-Pro Live is a revolutionary electronic drum set that looks, feels, and sounds like real acoustic drums. Never before have drummers been offered the limitless sonic capability and realistic feel of electronic drums on a drum set built with real drum shells, real brass cymbals, and real drum set hardware.
Pearl e-Pro Live looks like real drums because the appearance of your gear is important. It's a statement about who you are as a performer. Most drummers would rather be seen playing real drums, and not a collection of practice pads.
No more playing on small black 8" pads. e-Pro Live features 10" x 6-1/2", 12" x 7", and 14" x 8" rack toms with a 20" x 12" bass and 14" x 4-1/2" snare with white heads.
The foundation of Pearl e-Pro Live starts with the modified Icon Rack. The rack will accommodate adding more drums and cymbals. The tom arms, shells, cymbal holders, and rack are all covered by Pearl's Lifetime Warranty.
Real drum shells
Pearl e-Pro Live features 6-ply poplar shells along with robust drum hardware and durable drum finishes.
Real feel is the next important ingredient of Pearl e-Pro Live. Whether you're practicing or performing, Pearl believes playing electronic drums should feel as much like playing acoustic drums as possible. Playing traditional electronic drums with tightly configured small pads forces you to alter your playing style. e-Pro Live drums are sized and configured exactly like acoustic drums for a natural and real feel.
Truly, Pearl e-Pro Live is 2 drum kits for the price of one. e-Pro Live is made with real drums, so turning your kit into a great-sounding acoustic drum set is as easy as 1-2-3. One, remove the top hoop and the Tru-Trac head. Two, put on a regular drumhead and replace the top hoop. Three, tune and play!
eClassic brass cymbals
The cymbals featured in the Pearl e-Pro Live drum set are Pearl's eClassic high-end electronic cymbals, made with real brass. The eClassics feel and respond to your playing just like real cymbals, because they ARE real cymbals. eClassics feature a 3-zone 16" chokeable ride, 13" chokeable crash, and a super-responsive 12" hi-hat.
Pearl's Tru-Trac electronic drumheads feature dual zones that reproduce all of the intricacies a drummer hears when playing acoustic drums. The smooth coating on the heads makes moving from drum to drum fast and easy. The formula used to create Tru-Trac Heads produces a feel virtually identical to acoustic drums.
The ultimate goal of a drum module is to reproduce the real sound of drums. All of these great components couldn't reach their full potential without rich drum and percussion sounds generated from the r.e.d.box drum module (r.e.d. stands for Real Electronic Drums). The r.e.d.box features 8 sliders, 100 user-programmable kits, USB connectivity, many popular global effects, MIDI in/out, 2 main outputs, and 2 Aux outputs.
The r.e.d.box has 128MB of RAM. The full memory is used to accommodate the original acoustics of 1000 high definition sounds and 100 high definition kits. The sound library includes acoustic and vintage drums, electronics from beat machines to modern digital and a variety of orchestral, concert and world percussion instruments.
One of the most unique features of the r.e.d.box module is the ability to flash the memory of the module and replace the original acoustics with one large and lush-sounding kit. A few easy steps and you'll be on your way to playing premium kits on your e-Pro Live from the best drum sampling software companies in the world. Specially designed kits are available for preview and download from Toontrack, BFD, Ocean Way, Steven Slate, Sonic Reality, and Virtual Drum Line.
