Taking you Back to Push Your Sound Forward.
A classic shell fusion derived from Pearl’s original Masters shell recipe, Masters Maple Reserve drums feature North American Maple plies from our Masterworks Veneer Vault. Delivering a sophisticated balance of tone and power, its 4+4 Maple Shell Recipe yields rich, sustained lows, powerful midrange, and centered, resonant shimmer.
