Pearl's Championship Maple Maple Tenors feature 6 ply, 100% Maple shells, providing a natural balance of mid to high frequencies which set the industtry standard for dynamic range, sensitivity, and projection. The strength and reliability of Maple allows your ensemble to perform in all climate conditions and environments with supreme clarity for seasons to come.

SST Formed Shells

Championship Maple Tenor Drums are manufactured with Pearl's Superior Shell Technology which utilizes a proprietary technique for achieving the ultimate air chamber.

The wood plies are saturated with Pearl's proprietary "AcoustiGlue" that permeates every pore and dries to the eact consistency of the wood for optimal 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.
