Ply Maple Shell

Maple is the ideal choice for a concert snare drum due to its range of frequency response and warmth in sound quality.

Our exclusively manufactured 6-ply and 8 even-ply 100% Maple wood shells have a smooth even texture that remains durable under a wide range of conditions and accepts a variety of rich lustrous finishes. This highly respected acoustic wood offers a wide dynamic range and a well-balanced overtone response. Full-bodied low frequencies, with an even balance of high and mid-tones, have made this shell the all-around accepted premium material in the acoustic drum industry.

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. Finally, the plies are formed in high-temperature molds with 1000 PSI of hydraulic pressure to produce perfect drum shells that exhibit superior tone, optimal resonance, and extreme strength.

SR500 Triad Strainer

At the heart of the Philharmonic snare drum is the revolutionary SR500 strainer system. The Triad Silent Strainer System provides three individual tension adjusters allowing you to fine-tune the optimum tension for each type of snare material mounted on the drum and a single global adjustment knob on the butt side for quick overall tension adjustments. Silent snare throw provides 3 individual snare adjusters allowing for optimal fine-tuning of each snare material. A global adjuster is used on the butt side for quick overall adjustments.

 

Graduated Tension Snares

A proprietary combination of three unique snare sets (coated cable, stainless cable & snappy wire) using both graduated and even tensioning, offers seamless timbre overlapping and ultra-smooth dynamic transition, plus a greatly extended dynamic and sensitivity range. All snares can be effortlessly changed by simply loosening the adjuster and one drum key rod.

Tube Lugs

Classic Style and professional performance lugs allow the maximum shell resonance.
