However, the Gear4music extended warranty scheme provides an enhanced service, and is designed to offer a higher level of protection than many 'free' warranties offered by some retailers and manufacturers.

The highlights of this enhanced warranty service are:

  • Warranty is extended to 5 years from the date of delivery.
  • Our Money Back guarantee is extended from 30 days to 90 days (terms apply after 30 days)
  • Collection and delivery costs are included for the first two years
  • Claim 50% cash back on the cost of the policy after 5 years if it has not been used!
  • Warranty is transferable if the item is re-sold
  • Loan or replacement equipment will be provided if the product isn't repaired within 30 days
  • If an item can not be repaired, a similar alternative product or cash discount (as defined in this policy) will be offered
  • The policy can be cancelled within 30 days, and at any time after that for a pro-rata discount

Please note that this extended warranty is currently only available on products sold within the EU or EEA, and is subject to the terms and conditions as detailed on the extended warranty certificate provided.

For customers in outlying areas of the country, the price of the Extended Warranty may be marginally higher, due to the potential for higher collection and redelivery transport costs.

This enhanced warranty is in addition to the standard Gear4music and manufacturer warranty policies, and the Gear4music terms and conditions of trade. No statement or condition of sale contained within these terms affects or restricts your statutory rights as defined under the Consumer Contracts Regulation 2014.

Pearl Reference Pure 22'' Fusion Shell Pack, Matte Black

Pearl Reference Pure Kits are a thin shell alternative to the Reference Drums. As with the Reference series, Pearl have developed the perfect configuration for each separate shell. Reference Pure kits allow better vibration from the drum head to the actual shell, whilst the 45 degree bearing edge provides pinpoint articulation of your playing. The low mass tom OptiMount suspension system also reduces surface content for maximum resonance. Pure Drums are 30 thinner than the original Reference kits, creating a resonant, accurate and lightweight drum kit optimised for professional recording.

Reference Pure - The Difference

Pearl's Reference Pure shells are designed with the ultimate sound in mind. Each shell features a wealth of innovation designed to deliver that expectation.

Evenply shells are 30% thinner than the average Pearl shell, and will resonate freely with the lightest touch. Even the subtlest playing dynamics will be projected beautifully by these ultra thin Reference Pure shells. This innovation is coupled with the aluminium OptiMount tom suspension system, which mounts to the tension rods and isolates the shell from metal to metal contact. STL Swivel lugs are used to allow for minimal shell contact and increased resonance, whilst the floor tom features Air Suspension rubber feet which isolate the tom from the floor.

The Pearl Reference series Bass Drum shells consist of 6 inner plies of Mahogany and 2 outer plies of Maple that provide solid and responsive bass frequencies. The bass drum shells also use a fully rounded bearing edge that allow for maximum kinetic energy transfer from the head to the shell for a solid punch and ultimate resonance.

The Pearl Reference series 12" Tom are the only solid wood shell in the series with 6 plies of Maple for a smooth and balanced tone. The Pearl Reference 10" Tom consists of 4 plies of Maple again for a smooth and balanced tone as well as 2 inner plies of Birch for added attack and cut. Both Toms use a rounded 45 degree bearing edge to keep the woods balanced with a solid punch.

The 14" Floor Tom in the Pearl Reference series are made from Maple with inner plies of African mahogany to provide thunderous lows as well as a fully rounded bearing edge to provide more punch and resonance.
