History of Pearl
Pearl have been making musical equipment in Japan since 1946. In 1950 founder Katsumi Yanagisawa refocused the company's efforts towards drums before adding Latin percussion, Timpani and marching drums a few years later.
Since then Pearl have gone from strength to strength. A favourite with professional players all over the world including Dennis Chambers, Ian Paice and Joey Jordison to name a few, Pearl have created a super-solid reputation.
