Sensitone Elite Steel Snare

Pearl is proud to introduce its new line of Hybrid Exotic Snare Drums, featuring three unique “hybrid” shell compositions to provide a new sonority in the snare drum market.

We pioneered the wood-fiberglass shell in the 1970’s. We’ve recreated these classics by blending Kapur, known for it’s rich low-end frequencies, with an inner layer of reflective fiberglass to give our Kapur/Fiberglass drums sensational warmth with boosted power and high-end cut. These marvelous instruments are finished in glimmering Ebony Lacquer with a Pearl Inlay.

Each drum is 14” in width, and is offered in both a 5” and 6.5” depth, as well as a 8” depth for Kapur/Fiberglass shells. All Hybrid Exotic Snare Drums are equipped with Pearl’s acclaimed SuperHoop II hoops, STL-100 lugs, SR-1000 strainer, Coated Ambassador batter head, and chrome hardware.
