Maple is the ideal choice for a concert snare due to its range of frequency response and warmth in sound quality.

Our exclusively manufactured 6 ply 100% Maple wood shells have a smooth even texture that remains durable under a wide range of conditions and accepts a variety of rich lustrous finishes. This highly respected acoustic wood offers a wide dynamic range and well balanced overtone response. Full bodied low frequencies, with an even balance of high and mid-tones have made this shell the all around accepted premium material in the acoustic drum industry.

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.
