Delivering arguably the greatest drum tones ever recorded, Pearl’s fresh take on the legendary Maple/Gum shell recipe reaches new levels in dynamic punch and sensitive response with the sonic warmth and explosive low-end response.

Crafted originally as the Masterworks Sonic-Select Studio Recipe, this EvenPly Six combination of premium North American Maple and figured sweet Gum wood creates a thin but very dense shell. Combined with the shallow 60-degree bearing edge and heavier Die-Cast hardware load, Masters Maple/Gum snare drums deliver a punchy, immediate tone that is perfect for recording.  

Masters Maple/Gum snare drums can be made in any one of Pearl's 28 special order custom Lacquer options, or hand-wrapped in one of our 35 available Music City Custom finishes.
