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 pioneered the wood-fiberglass hybrid shell in the 1970’s. Now they've recreated these classics by blending kapur, known for it’s rich low-end frequencies, with an inner layer of reflective fiberglass to give our Kapur/Fiberglass drums sensational warmth with boosted power and high-end cut. These marvelous instruments are finished in glimmering Ebony Lacquer with a Pearl Inlay.
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.
