This Snare Sounds AMAZING!There's just no better way to describe it. From the first time you hit the Pearl Reference Pure Series Snare drum, you're going to wonder how you ever got by without one. There's just no way to hit this thing without getting a great sound. That has everything to do with the remarkable way Pearl designed their Reference Pure Series Snare. First, there's the shell, which matches a pair of birch inner plies with four maple outer plies - a combination that perfectly balanced bright snap with powerful projection. What's more, it's made with Pearl's Superior Shell Technology, so it's super strong and extra resonant.
But that's not all. The Reference Pure Series Snare also features Pearl's advanced low-mass hardware. STL swivel tube lugs make minimal contact with the shell, allowing the Reference Pure Series Snare to vibrate naturally so each hit rings out completely. Low-mass 1.6mm Fat Tone Hoops also contribute greatly to the Reference Pure Series Snare's resonance. And where the hoops meet the shell, there's a 45 degree bearing edge, which both increases the Reference Pure Series Snare'a volume and gives you an impressively large sweet spot to play with. The result: a snare drum that sounds great and is a blast to play.
