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.
e-Pro Live looks like real drums because the appearance of your gear is important. It's a statement about who you are as a performer. As drummers we would rather be seen playing real drums and not a collection of practice pads.
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.
The foundation of e-Pro Live starts with the modified DR-80E Icon e-Rack. The rack is expandable to add more drums and cymbals for larger configurations The tom arms, shells, cymbal holders and rack are all covered by Pearl's Lifetime Warranty.
Real Feel is the next important ingredient of e-Pro Live. Because whether you're practicing or performing, playing electronic drums should feel as much like playing acoustic drums as possible. Playing traditional electronic drums with their tightly configured small pads forces you to alter your playing style. e-Pro live drums are sized and configured exactly like acoustic drums for a natural and real feel.
What makes the e-Pro Live drumset truly different than other electronic drumsets is the real feel and response from the pads. Pearl's Tru-Trac Electronic Heads feature dual-zones that reproduce all of the intricacies the drummer is used to hearing when you play an acoustic drum. The smooth coating on the heads makes moving from drum to drum fast and easy.
e-Pro Live is two kits for the price of one – turning your kit into a great sounding acoustic drumset is as easy as 1-2-3. One, remove the top hoop and the Tru-Trac head. Two, replace with a regular drumhead. Three, replace the top hoop, tune, and play!
The cymbals featured on the e-Pro Live are Pearl's E-Classic high-end electronic cymbals, made with real brass. The E-Classics feel and respond to your playing just like real cymbals, because they ARE real cymbals. E-Classics feature a 3-zone plus choke 16" Ride, 13" chokable crash and super responsive 12" Hi-Hats.
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, Zildjian, and Steven Slate Drums, to provide the lush kits through a new website:
