Pearl and legendary drummer Dennis Chambers create new “10-over 8” Signature Snare

today14 June, 2023


To be truly great, one must evolve over time. Drumming legend Dennis Chambers took this to heart when considering the transformation of his snare drum sound. Designed for sonic evolution, the new Pearl Dennis Chambers Signature Snare drum employs the multi-lug design of his previous Signature model, with ten STL100 single swivel tuning lugs on the batter side, and eight on the snare side for top-end tonal focus.

The real difference comes with its SR300 Multi-Timbre Strainer that features three individually tunable 6-strand snappy wire snares. Each can be engaged or disengaged to further sculpt the sound of the drum. Pearl’s durable Mastercast Die-Cast Hoops also add weight for increased projection.

“I got this idea from the Pearl Symphonic series snare drum,” Dennis admits. “I fell in love with the idea of having three different snare settings on one drum.”

Features include the 4-ply Maple with 4-ply Re-Ring shell of his original Signature model, Evans G12 batter and snare heads, and a Matte Black lacquer finish for visual versatility. The Dennis Chambers Signature Snare delivers a solid, searing, and articulate sound that fits well in any playing field.
