Pearl ePro Live EPLX205P/B464 Electronic Drum Kit, Quilted Maple Fade – Product Review:

e-Pro Live is a revolutionary electronic drumset that looks, feels and sounds like real drums. Never before has today’s drummer been offered the limitless sonic capability and realistic feel of electronic drums on a drumset built with real drum shells, real brass cymbals, and real drumset hardware, all from the percussion industry’s leader, Pearl.

The real look of the e-Pro Live starts with the real sizes of the drums. The set features 10″, 12″ and 14″ toms, a 14″ snare drum, and a 20″ bass drum, so the drummer no longer has to change their playing mechanics to adjust to a set full of 8″ practice pads.

The next component contributing to the real look of the drums is the real wood shells. Authentic Pearl shells, drum hardware and drum finishes adorn both versions of e-Pro Live. Two finishes are available: Pearl’s new Artisan II finish, available in a beautiful Quilted Maple fade, and a durable black wrap.

Module

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 massive 128MB RAM capacity accommodates 1000 High Definition Sounds, 100 High Definition kits, plus space for 100 user-created kits.

One very unique and exciting capability of Pearl’s r.e.d.box is the Memory Switch, which gives you the ability to flash the memory and substitute a lush, super high-end drum set for the original acoustics. Pearl has partnered with professional digital drum samplers Toontrack, Sonic Reality, Ocean Way, Steven Slate Drums, Virtual Drumline and BFD, to provide the lush kits through a new website, www.redboxsoundshop.com.
Hardware

Heads

What makes the e-Pro Live drumset truly different than other electronic drumsets is the real feel and response from the pads.

The smooth coating on the heads makes moving from drum to drum fast and easy.
