Originating in 1973, Pearl’s Crystal Beat Acrylic drums feature a 7mm molded, seamless Acrylic shell.

This uniquely dense shell's flexible constitution lends itself well to straight shooting, no overtone punch. 

However, combining it with our Free-Floating chassis is where the Crystal Beat snare really shines. With no holes or hardware touching the shell, it is free to speak with its intended voice without being encumbered by shell stress or stability. 

Crystal Beat Snare Drums are available in two sizes and four finishes. for a vivid combination of cutting tonal power and stunning visual appeal.

Free-Floating Chassis

Pearl's revolutionary snare system suspends the shell in a die-cast chassis with only the batter head contacting the edge; allowing uninhibited tonal body, resonance, and volume.

Click-Lock Strainer

(US Patent #9082376) The revolutionary SR-160F features an inner "C"-shaped nylon clip that attaches the throw off arm to the tension dial, preventing the lever from disengaging and the tension dial from loosening, even when the tension is very low. (Shown on FTMMH1465322)
