(Pearl market this drum kit as using the “Best of Masterworks” shell materials, hence the wood of the drums is carefully chosen according to the tom or drum size and characteristics wanted for that specific drum ).
The secret of the Reference Kit is the amount of research that has gone into making it. The wood of the drums is carefully chosen according to the tom or drum size and characteristics wanted for that specific drum. This is no ordinary drum kit – when it’s properly tuned, it’s a reference for what other drum kits should sound like!

The Gretsch Renown Maple is one of my favourites kits for recording in the studio. As a sound engineer I prefer the sound of these to the DW collector series maple, it has thicker shells and therefore a warmer, deeper tone.
All kits come with standard with the toms that are on separate stands to the bass drum (isolation) and 3 to 4 cymbals stands, a drum seat/throne, hi-hat stand, snare stand and kick pedal if necessary.

Hire drums – Cymbal sets
Anatolian Cymbals are hand hammered and created in an Istanbul factory in Turkey. The cymbals have engraved markings in the same spot as the Istanbul and Alchemy Cymbals and have many similar characteristics to these whilst also having their own character. They are sold mainly in Europe as up-market cymbals – because they are hand hammered, each cymbal has its own distinct flavour.

1 set of Anatolian Ultimate Series 14-inch hi-hats.
