These Pearl Masterworks drum shells are constructed with Pearl's supreme quality African Mahogany with Maple reinforcement rings. Mahogany was the industry standard for drum shells for over fifty years. The drums are extremely rich in low-end frequencies, with beautifully smooth mids and a slight roll-off in the higher register.
This 4-piece pack of Pearl drums features thin 4-ply shells with 45-degree bearing edges. The thin shells enable relatively easy energy transfer from the heads to the shell, thus causing the shell to fully vibrate. This vibration imparts a very rich, warm "wood" tone to the overall sound that can be most appreciated close to the kit while it's played. This effect is also great for recording where miking techniques can capitalize on the warmth and natural tone of the percussion instrument.
This shell pack includes a 22" x 18" bass drum, 10" x 8" and 12" x 9" rack toms, and a 16" x 16" floor tom. All three toms feature Chrome Super Hoops and Aluminum OptiMounts and Remo Clear Ambassador heads.
Completely custom, totally handmade Pearl drums
Masterworks hopes to change the way drummers view a custom set of drums. At Pearl, the word custom holds quite a bit more reverence. It means they made it, not assembled it. It means everything about the drum is made by hand, one piece at a time, by a Pearl master craftsman. From hand-selecting the finest woods and painstakingly forming the shell, to die casting and plating the hardware that mounts to it, drums bearing the Masterworks badge are one of a kind ultimate acoustic instruments, hand made to your specifications, with the expertise and quality Pearl is known for.
Cymbals and hardware not included.
