Thick cast aluminum offers a full-bodied tone
The UltraCast is Pearl's exclusive precision-milled, cast aluminum shell snare drum. At 3mm thick, this is one of the thickest metal drums you'll find. Aluminum is a relatively soft metal, and rocks the warm, round, full bodied tone of a wood shell snare. However, it also possesses the crack, volume and projection provided by a metal snare.
Better, more consistent tuning and head seating
Since UltraCast is a milled cast aluminum shell, its bearing edges are precision-cut and perfect every time. This sports ease of tuning and perfect head seating around the entire circumference of the drum.
