Each Pearl Free Floating snare model's Task-Specific shell recipe is tailored for a unique tonal voice and application. The Birch 14"x3.5" drum delivers the crisp Piccolo CRACK! you'd expect with a more focused, pronounced sonic snap.

Free Floating Birch 14"x3.5" Piccolo Snare Drum

Model Number

FTBB1435

Just as each player has an individual voice, shell materials -particularly on snare drums- react differently to the drummer's unique approach. This is why Pearl's Free Floating snares have been custom-tailored to fit a specific task by model.

Pearl's revolutionary die-cast Free Floating chassis allows each shell to speak with a voice that is uninhibited by shell hardware, for true tonal purity. Individually chosen by size, shell type, and application, each drum is true to the Free Floating concept, and gives the player an unrestrained voice within the tonal spectrum.

Features an EvenPly Six (5.4mm) Premium SST Birch shell, for brighter wood tone and sizzling ghost note sensitivity.

Features

6-ply, (5.4mm) Premium SST Birch shell

A thin combination of pristine white Birch makes this EvenPly Six (5.4mm) shell brighter and more open with out the shrill "coffee can" pop normally associated with smaller diameter drums.

Mastercast Die-Cast Hoops

For superior strength, rigid tuning stability, and added volume and attack.

Click-Lock Strainer

(US Patent #9082376) The revolutionary SR160F features an inner "C"-shaped nylon clip that attaches the throw off arm to the tension dial, preventing the lever from disengaging and the tension dial from loosening, even when the tension is very low. 

Free-Floating Chassis

Pearl's revolutionary snare system suspends the shell in a die-cast chassis with only the batter head contacting the edge; allowing uninhibited tonal body, resonance, and volume.

Task-Specific Sound and Performance

One of eight Task-Specific snare models, each one offers a unique voice engineered to fit a specific task by size and shell density for any sonic situation.
