In keeping with the recent sports trend, Pearl has announced they have reached a deal to be the official supplier of drums and percussion for the Pacific 10 Conference (Pac-10) men’s and women’s basketball tournaments. Read closely and you’ll see that not all of the universities have agreed to use Pearl drum sets, just Pearl marching percussion. It looks like all the California schools (USC, UCLA, UC-Berkeley) might have other contracts they must honor. Interesting. If any of you guys are college hoops fans, keep an eye out come tournament time. Now you’ll know what these schools are playing.
