Great sound for both live and recording, beautiful lacquer finish.
From what I've heard things like extra add-on toms and such are hard to come by, but that's to be expected with any older and discontinued kit.
I recently bought my 6 pc. Pearl Session DLX kit used from a friend who had bought them just days before at a pawn shop. He only charged me what he gave for them which was $400 US and that included all the necessary mounting hardware plus all kinds of extras, like a good cymbal stand and hi-hat stand, an ok double pedal and a good snare stand. Now, I almost feel bad because I feel like I robbed him. I've owned a number of kits over the years from different manufacturers and this is the best sounding kit I've ever owned. Awesome!
