Philharmonic Beaded Brass

PHB Philharmonic Brass offers the highest frequency response in the Philharmonic Series with bright cutting clarity and finesse. 1.5mm thick brass Philharmonic shells have a bright, highly focused, well-balanced bright ringing tone that soars without being choked or forced, perfect for situations needing more volume and projection.


Beaded brass shells on 5” and 6.5" depth drums add a touch of style and strength while the 4” piccolo depth is a straight brass shell to accommodate the shorter tube lug standoffs.
