Crafted by a singular artisan with time-refined precision, Pearl Music City Custom Solid Shell Snare Drums are uniquely-refined percussion instruments crafted to elevate your entire approach to drums and drumming. 

Beginning with a steam-treated plank of premium North American hardwood, each Music City Custom solid shell is shaped using an old-world crafting technique derived from ship-building.

Hand-milled to a smooth, uniform 8mm thickness and combined with Solid Maple reinforcement rings, each shell is CNC drilled, hand-finished, and assembled at Pearl's Music City Custom Shop in Nashville, TN.

Finally, each snare is adorned with our elegant single STL swivel lugs, Stainless Steel rods, and SuperHoop II triple-flanged hoops for precise tuning and playability.

The distinctive tonal nature of these one-of-a kind instruments makes each Music City Custom Solid Shell snare drum truly unique, and a true an investment in the ultimate drumming voice.

A fat growl with a naturally darker tone, the sound of Walnut is a perfect complement to its luxurious grain.

Solid Ash

Brighter, louder, and with the CRACK of a Homerun hit, the tonal quality of Ash is punchy with extended sustain.
