A line of snare drums crafted from hybrid shell materials.
The Hybrid Exotic line of snare drums from Pearl feature three unique “hybrid” shell compositions to provide a new sonority in the snare drum market.
Pearl's aluminum shells are famous for their “wood-like” tone with the cut of metal. The shells are 3mm thick for added rigidity which provides superb sensitivity and ultra-wide dynamic range from whisper quiet to blastisimo. They’re polished and lightly clear coated to protect the beauty of these fine instruments.
To maintain tuning tension rods across the batter head, all Hybrid Exotic snare drums feature Pearl's Spin-Tight Tension Rods. The elegantly simple innovation creates a tension rod-within-a-tension rod, that allows the rod to expand and lock into place within the swivel nut. Utilizing a special drum key, tunings can be controlled inder high-impact playing like never before.
Each Hybrid Exotic drum is 14” in width, and is offered in both a 5” and 6.5” depth, as well as a 8” depth for Kapur/Fiberglass shells. All Hybrid Exotic snares are equipped with Pearl’s acclaimed SuperHoop II hoops, STL-100 lugs, SR-1000 strainer, Remo Coated Ambassador batter head, and chrome hardware.
