Drumsets Masters Maple/Gum
Delivering arguably the greatest drum tones ever recorded, the historically proven sound of the Maple/Gum shell combination is renowned worldwide for its explosive midrange warmth and extended low end power.
Limited Edition, Unlimited Sound
Introduced in 2017, Pearl’s Sonic Select Shell Recipes gave a performance-formula focus to the boutique-level Masterworks series. Though each sonically-tested option represents the very best in form and function, the Studio Recipe won the favor of many a Pearl Artist due to its explosive midrange warmth and extended low-end power. Starting in 2019, the Studio Recipe will be available for a limited time as Masters Maple/Gum series drums.
The Masterworks Studio Recipe, Simplified
Available in a pre-selected offering of hand-lacquered and wrapped finishes, each will feature a vault-cured EvenPly-Six layered premium North American Maple and Gum wood shell with 60-degree edges, Mastercast Die-Cast hoops, and Pearl’s CL bridge lugs. “Make no mistake about it, Masters Maple/Gum is a Masterworks drum set,” states Pearl R&D Director Raymond Massey. “The only thing missing is the level of finish and hardware customization that comes with the Masterworks program. We’ve spent the last year sound-testing these drums to assure that the right combination of shell woods, hoops, and lugs was in the mix for an elite playing experience; and we couldn’t be prouder of the results!”
Exciting New Finishes
Available in Hand-Rubbed Natural Natural Maple #186, Black Diamond Pearl #421, Matte White Marine #422, and Platinum Gold Oyster #453.
