Competitor Bass Drum shells feature 6-ply Poplar/Kapur shells crafted by Pearl’s Superior Shell Technology. The wood combination produces excellent response in mid to low registers,  as well as the full frequency tone you need for a full sounding bass drum. Competitor Series drums bring together traditional materials and legendary Pearl craftsmanship to create high quality tenors at a tremendous value. Pearl’s 45 degree bearing edge maximizes the volume of these thunderous air chambers. To compliment these shells, 1.5” wide, 6-ply, high gloss black maple hoops are secured by extra wide claws to provide evenly dispersed grip and consistent tuning.


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.
