Hybrid Maple / Carbon Fiber Shell

Championship CarbonCore FFXCC Snare Drum shells offer the most expressive and complete sound ever available on the field. The hybrid shells consist of 6 plies of 100% Maple with an added inner ply of ultra-light Carbon Fiber. The inner ply of Carbon Fiber improves pronunciation and boosts projection across the full dynamic spectrum while the 6 plies of Maple maintain the great tone and warmth characteristic of Pearl Championship Series. 4-ply reinforcement rings and a 45-degree bottom bearing edge provide the shell with stability and shape integrity while focusing the drum’s maximum sensitivity and volume.

Championship CarbonCore Snare Drums are manufactured with Pearl’s Superior Shell Technology which 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.

Acoustically Located Air Vents

6 acoustically located vents enhance volume, snare sensitivity, and relieve drum pressure for unparalleled stick response.
