Individually engineered to make you sound (and play) better.

Derived from the shell blends of the sonically optimized Reference Recipe, each Reference Pure drum shell is comprised of reduced thickness premium wood layers. The resulting EvenPly shells beautifully capture every nuance of your unrestrained drumming voice.

  • A Lighter, Thinner Shell

    30% thinner plies create a shell with enhanced sustain and resonance.

  • Sonically Proven Performance

    Prime Maple, Birch, and Mahogany panels from our Masterworks vault.

  • Nuanced Near Field Sound

    Increased resonance, bottom end, and tone from the heads to your ears.  


Light in Weight, Heavy on Features.

Combining the ultra thin EvenPly shell with more efficient hardware reduces overall drum weight by 30%, increasing resonance, improving bottom end, and accentuating Reference Pure's nuanced, close range playing experience.

  • OptiMount Tom Suspension

    Solid four-point tom mounting system maintains resonance and tone.

  • FatTone 1.6mm Hoops

    Its strong low mass design reacts like a classic "stick chopper" hoop.

  • Swivel Tube Lugs

    For increased resonance, minimal shell contact, and self aligned fine tuning.
