Pearl Introduces Wood Fiberglass Series
True to the legacy set by their innovative forefathers, new Wood/Fiberglass drums’ 7-ply Poplar/Kapur shell features an inner layer of Fiberglass that is hand-applied and lacquered through a painstakingly precise process. To further sculpt the tone of these unique drums, a sharp 45-degree edge is cut on the toms of each kit, while the bass drums feature a fully-rounded bearing edge. This brings focus to the Kapur wood’s darker tonal qualities and accentuates the sonic cut of Fiberglass; delivering a unique combination of warmth, projection, and focused decay.
Pearl’s limited production run of new Wood/Fiberglass drums will include three traditionally-sized 3-piece shell packs. Four customized lacquer finishes have been selected from the Reference Series palette including #103 Piano Black, #151 Platinum Mist, #152 Antique Gold, and #327 Satin Cocoa Burst, each in homage to the classic colors of the original wood/fiberglass kits.
