Masterworks Sonic Select Shell Recipes Studio


A hard/soft layered wood combination in a thin 4-ply shell, crafted to fully capture every nuance of the drummer’s performance with tonal clarity. 

Speaks with pure midrange projection and unique bottom-end. Its articulate, clean tonality commands a vintage flavor with modern flair. Higher tunings also make it exceptional for the intricacies of Jazz, Orchestral, and other technically subtle performance.

  • EvenPly-Six, 4-ply Maple/Gumwood – A thin combination of a hard exterior with milder tonewood, Studio’s shell is designed to vibrate freely for explosive mid-to-low range warmth.

  • Outer 60° – Helps the thinner shell speak with brightness and power without sounding harsh.

  • MasterCast Hoops – Gives each drum added weight for tonal body, and increases volume in each stroke, particularly in rim-shot hits and high-velocity play.

  • CL Bridge Lugs are a Pearl staple. The CL bridge lug gives the drum a classic look and contacts the shell in separate points for the right amount of vibration control.
