A Real Piece Of Work
By Andrew Lentz Published July 27, 2010
In the spirit of a low carbon footprint and plain good taste, Pearl is issuing maple Concert and Symphonic Series Snare Drums in Artisan II natural feathered walnut finish, an eco-friendly digital grain transfer process that allows exotic woods to be reproduced without harvesting endangered or rare woods.
Developed exclusively for the concert hall, the Symphonic Series Snare Drum looks and sound amazing in these rarefied venues. Choice appointments such as the SR300 Multi-Timbre Snare Strainer, providing access to 3 individually adjustable throw-offs controlling Snappy wire, wound cable, or heavy cable snares are perfect for that tension-building march in Ravel’s “Bolero.” Stainless steel tension rods, die-cast hoops, and classic tube lugs complete the package.
Not to be outdone, the Concert Series Snare Drums is decked out with goodies such as 2.3mm triple-flanged SuperHoop II rims, vintage snare beds, an SR-017 strainer, and specially designed Angle-Mounted Stainless steel and coated cable snares.
Both the Concert Series and Symphonic Series Snare Drums feature 6 plies of 100% Maple and are available in 14x5.5” and 14x6.5” sizes. Finishes available for a limited time only.
