Concert Toms Philharmonic

Today's music requires instruments with power, projection, and fullness of sound, Today's percussionists demand instruments that have a tonal quality that can be used in the studio for the most delicate passages, powerful enough to be heard at the back of the stadium if needed, and durable enough to last on the road. Pearl Philharmonic and Symphonic concert toms do all that with the best hardware on the market to back it up.


Philharmonic PTA Concert Toms

Pearl's Philharmonic Series Concert Toms feature 100% 6-ply African Mahogany shells for a rich sustain and powerful penetrating bass tones.

The Double-Headed Toms are equipped with Pearl’s renowned OptiMount suspension system which attach to the batter and resonant side tension rods and float the drum on rubber cushions. OptiMount allows the drum shell to be completely isolated from the stand and tom arm, further improving resonance and sustain.

The Single-Headed Toms are equipped with Pearl’s ISS Mounts (Integrated Suspension System) attached to the drum hoops which allows the shell to resonate freely resulting in maximum sustain and resonance.

PTA Philharmonic Concert Toms are available individually. Sizes available are 8x8, 10x10, 10x12, 11x13, 12x14, 14x15, and 14x16. Double tom stands are available separately.

PTA Concert toms come standard with Remo Renaissance heads and a #210 Matte Walnut Stain finish.

6 Ply African Mahogany Shell

African Mahogany is a relatively soft hardwood that offers a dramatic boost in lower frequencies. This bass boost effect is most likely due to its loosely packed cellulose network, which creates a natural resonator effect in the lower frequencies. This predisposition for powerful lows makes it the logical choice for concert toms and bass drums where the low frequencies are sought after in performance.


Pearl’s Superior Shell Technology utilizes a proprietary technique for achieving the ultimate air chamber. It begins with select woods chosen for their unique acoustic attributes, milled to precise thickness with overlapping scarf joint seams, for a perfect air-tight fit. The wood plies are saturated with Pearl’s proprietary “AcoustiGlue” that permeates every pore and dries to the exact consistency of the wood for optimum resonance. Finally, the plies are formed in high-temperature molds with 1000 PSI of hydraulic pressure to produce perfect drum shells that exhibit superior tone, optimal resonance and extreme strength.
