This stunning Music City Custom Solid Shell Snare Drum features a center inlay of premium Ebony wood. Honed by a singular artisan with time-honored precision, each Pearl's Music City Custom Solid Shell Snare Drum is a uniquely refined, American-made percussion instrument. Beginning with a steam-treated plank of premium North American Walnut, each Music City Custom solid shell is shaped using an old-world crafting technique derived from ship-building. Hand-milled to a smooth, uniform 8mm thickness and combined with Solid Maple reinforcement rings, each shell is CNC drilled, hand-finished, and assembled at Pearl's Music City Custom Shop in Nashville, TN. Pearl's single STL swivel lugs, Stainless Steel tuning rods, and SuperHoop II triple-flanged hoops complete the drum, making this one-of-a kind percussion instrument an investment in the ultimate drumming voice.
