Pearl’s Superior Shell Technology is used to make a 6-ply Maple shell, the drum industry’s premium for dynamic range, sensitivity, and unsurpassed projection.

SST

Pearl’s Superior Shell Technology utilizes a proprietary technique for achieving the ultimate air chamber. It begins with select woods chosen for their unique acoustic attributes, milled to precise thickness with overlapping scarf joint seams, for a perfect air-tight fit. The wood plies are saturated with Pearl’s proprietary “AcoustiGlue” that permeates every pore and dries to the exact consistency of the wood for optimum resonance.
