Hybrid Exotic VectorCast

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.


Sensitone Elite Steel Snare

A single tiny strand can make all the difference in the world. Beginning with a composite material filament and resin thread, Pearl’s new VectorCast shell is formed around a mandrel in an X-pattern; creating a thin, high-strength shell that “flexes” with each strike. Its characteristic sound is both lively and fat, and is a vast departure from other synthetics like Acrylic or Carbon Fiber. 

Each Hybrid Exotic 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.

To maintain tuning tension rods across the batter head, all Hybrid Exotic snare drums feature Pearl's new Spin-Tight Tension Rods. The elegantly simple innovation creates a tension rod-within-a-tension rod, that allows the rod to expand and lock into place within the swivel nut.
Utilizing a special drum key, tunings can be controlled inder high-impact playing like never before.
