Model Number

PSD1455S/C

President Series Deluxe snares are made true to the standard that made the original "M.I.J." snare drums so desirable. 

The same shell material, lug combination, and bearing edge have been put into play to give you a sound that is grounded and sharp, but full of low-range overtone when played without dampening. Tempered using the internal shell muffler, the short, pillowy sound of every great AM Radio classic floods your senses.

The President Series Deluxe snare captures the tonal essence of an era, but its focused tuning range makes it far from a "One Hit Wonder". 

The snare drum that sounds like a memory.

Features

6-ply, 7.5mm Lauan Shell

Drawing from the very origins of Pearl's drum manufacturing history, Lauan was the source of the original "MIJ" (Made in Japan) sound. This darker-toned medium/hardwood was the basis of thousands of shells made by Mitsuo Yanagisawa in Pearl's Chiba, Japan-based drum factory starting in 1961. Loud yet subdued, Lauan has a deep, punchy wallop with plenty of top-end attack.  

SuperHoop II

A sturdy triple-flanged hoop at optimum 2.3mm thickness, each is identity stamped and made for accurate and secure tuning in play without inhibiting overall shell resonance.

SR-017 Strainer

This quick, simple strainer delivers effortless switching and optimum sensitivity control.

BSL-55 Traditional 8-Lug Layout

Preferred by Vintage enthusiasts and collectors, the original 8-lug layout (featuring a recasting of Pearl's original "Battleship" lug,) delivers a more open tonality while maintaining the dramatic punch of the original.
