Pearl Hybrid Exotic Kapur/Fiberglass snare drums blend the warmer properties of its 6-ply shell with the bright, controlled frequencies of a thin layer of hand-applied Fiberglass. The resulting shell produces rich, warm stick definition with added crack and projection.
Available in three sizes, Kapur/Fiberglass snares are available in (#308) Ebony Lacquer w/Pearloid Inlay. All Hybrid Exotic Snare Drums are equipped with Pearl’s acclaimed SuperHoop II hoops, STL100 lugs, SR1000 strainer, Coated Remo Ambassador batter head, and Spin-Tight Tension Rods.
To maintain tuning tension across the batter head, all Hybrid Exotic snare drums feature Pearl’s new Spin-Tight Tension Rods. This elegantly simple innovation creates a tension rod-within-a-tension rod, that allows the rod to expand and lock into place within the swivel nut. Utilizing a special drum key, tunings can be controlled under high-impact play like never before. (Patent Pending)
