Superior Shell Technology
Pearl’s Superior Shell Technology utilises 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.
Round 45 degree bearing edge (10T/12T/13T)
The rounded 45 degree bearing edge featured on 8″ through 13″ Toms offer cutting attack and projection, all balanced with a solid punch.
Fully round bearing edge (16FT/22BD)
The fully rounded bearing edge provides the ultimate solid punch and resonance by raising the overall contact area of the head to the shell. This allows maximum kinetic energy transfer from the head to the shell, resulting in maximum shell resonance.
6ply-7.5 mm shells are exceptional for general purpose play, excellent projection with full bodied wood tone. 8ply- 10mm offer Maximum cut and projection with subdued sustain. Avoids diminishing the dynamics for bigger size drums.
