Whether you’re seeking a matching snare for your Masters Maple Gum shell pack, looking for a solid auxiliary option, or in need of an articulate and full-bodied main snare, the Masters Maple Gum series by Pearl is a champion choice. The shell of this snare boasts Pearl's EvenPly-Six formula of four plies of North American maple and two plies of gumwood, unleashing a timelessly warm tonality that's articulate and dense enough to leave an undeniable impact. Cut with shallower 60° bearing edges, this Masters Maple Gum snare drum elicits greater power and a bite that makes for a legendary attack with every strike. Backed by the perfect balance of low-end support, Sweetwater drummers are hard-pressed to find another snare ripe for flawless studio work! Outfitted with Pearl’s proprietary Mastercast die-cast hoops, you can expect a full-bodied sound with fantastic contact intensity and hard-cutting rimshots and cross-sticks when recording and while on the road.
