And from its Battleship lugs to its Silver Script badges, this kit is bursting with vintage character. The President Series Deluxe shell pack comes outfitted with Remo USA CS Black Dot heads to fully capitalize on the bite and growl of its bass-enhanced shells. Inside each tom and kick, you'll find an adjustable tone muffler to focus stick attack and dry out resonance. A full complement of past-meets-present Pearl hardware â€” including gullwing bass spurs, a kick-mounted cymbal holder, and T-rod bass claws â€” makes the President Series Deluxe an irresistible addition to any Pearl collector's collection.
