To fully understand these drums you must accept that the desired tonal characteristics of a rack tom are completely different than that of a bass drum, and to make these drums with the same composition would result in a compromise.
This is the mission behind Reference Series and Reference Pure: To create a perfect sounding drum set where every drum is optimally engineered to produce the best sound possible within its respective tonal range and diameter... drum by drum by drum.
Forget what you think you know about drums and take a closer look at Pearl's Reference Recipe and the synergy of its three task-specific components.
