Comments about Pearl MCX Masters Series Snare Drum:

I have had my Pearl Maple shell set since 1982. This week I replaced my snare with the MCX Masters 14x6.5 I hadn't realized how dead my snare had grown to be. This MCX is awesome!!! Great rim shots and very dynamic. I love my Pearls!!!

      Comments about Pearl MCX Masters Series Snare Drum:

      I have the 14x6.5.
      This snare drum is amazing! Being Maple, it has more body and warmth than a metal snare drum. Yet still has plenty of attack and edge.
      It has a great tone tuned low or high, and with a quick adjustment it can be used in any style of music.
      It sounds outstanding in the studio.
      This is the most versatile snare drum i've ever played.
      If you have 400, buy it...NOW!(I got it on black Friday for 270) I felt like I stole it for that price.

      Best Snare I've Ever Played

      By Emelly

      from Madison, WI

      Comments about Pearl MCX Masters Series Snare Drum:

      I was looking to buy a new snare since I've only played on the stock snares that have come with my kits, and holy cow was I impressed. It came in great condition right out of the box with a Remo coated ambassador head on the top and another Remo head on the bottom, which was something I was definitely not expecting. I barely had to tune it to make it sound great and it fits in so nicely with the sound of my birch kit. If you're looking to get a new snare, trust me, it's worth the extra money to save up for this one. The snares have a great crack and crispness to them. It's perfect for any rock drummers.

      Great Snare Drum!!

      By Dean Burlon Jr

      from Lindenhurst, NY

      Comments about Pearl MCX Masters Series Snare Drum:

      I bought this snare about 5 years ago, and it is still in amzing shape. It looks good, It sounds amazing. I get a very controlled deep crack out of this snare. My set up is all Evans heads, Power center coated reverse dot, hazy 300 snare side, and fat cat snare wires. I can tune it for a pop/rock setting, and down tune it for a hard rock setting. I don't want any other snare! you wont either!

      My first maple shelled snare

      By Richard Moquin

      from South Windsor, CT

      Comments about Pearl MCX Masters Series Snare Drum:

      So far this snare has been exciting to play. My only experience has been with poplar and steel shelled snares. Even with stock heads on this snare, it produces a warm sound not inherent with my other two snares. I have yet to put it through some thorough testing, but initially I am happy with my choice. I tested several snares at my local store and settled on this one as soon as I played with it. I am usually against reviews of any kind for any store website I shop from, but this one was easy to write. I only wish I could have a complete kit with maple shells because there is something about the warm tone that draws me in. When I change the heads to my own I am sure the snare will amaze me even more so.

      Great snare at a great price.

      By Shawn Pitts

      from Terre Haute

      Comments about Pearl MCX Masters Series Snare Drum:

      I waited to write a review until I had enough playing time to give the snare a fair review. I have been using it for 6 months now and I have been very impressed with this snare. I've tried a few different heads and the Evans Genra is the one I like the most on this snare. I have it tuned tight and had to use a moon gel to kill the ringing but other then that,it has a very loud pop to it when tuned tight and sound great when tuned a bit loose. I had a Ludwig Epic 20 ply Birch snare I had to return and this was the snare that caught my eye at GC. The Epic snare was nice and sounded good,but the quality just wasn't there. I am glad I swapped them out and got the better of the 2. I have let a friend borrow it for a few gigs and he was impressed with it as well. I have the 6.5"x14" since I like a deeper snare.I was considering on having more then 2 snare drums in my collection,but this Snare is all a person needs.

        Comments about Pearl MCX Masters Series Snare Drum:

        I tuned the heads out of the box, and it sounds great. Some prefer more of a piccolo sounding snare. No drum truly does it all. Instead, this has a touch deeper, richer sound, with just the right amount of shell resonance. This will suit a broad spectrum of styles, from jazz to rock, and will sound great. For the money, the hoops, lugs, and strainer are good quality. Overall, I'm very happy with my purchase. The product is worth its price, and makes my whole set sound better.

        Masters Custom Maple snare 6 1/2

        By Bongo Bob

        from CT

        Comments about Pearl MCX Masters Series Snare Drum:

        Great snare for the money.
        So I just played another gig and used this beautiful snare again for the entire night. You see I play in a band that does all styles of music at each gig, from light jazz to funk , R and B , rock , you name it, and I will often use more than one snare as the sets change, usually playing a 60's vintage Slingerland chrome on brass to cut with the funk and rock as the night goes on. Versatility is a must for me for changing volume and musical conditions.

        I have owned this snare now for over six months and it is one of maybe six snares of all kinds that I use, but the only 6 1/2 inch depth that I have. I could not stop smiling as I played because this snare sounds sooo great! The sound is full and rich. It does not require a heavy hand to make it project. In a low volume gig like last night , the snare projects beautifully with very little effort. In a louder setting it really cuts with authority and again with out having to beat the crap out of it to pull the sound out. Originally bought for my blues gigs,( tuned lower), this snare is now my favorite for my regular gigs, tuned up. It is very well made , looks great, nice rims , well worth the price. But the sound....wow!
        Worth the money.
