Pearl Matt Halpern Signature Snare Drum Review

today10 January, 2022


Here’s a review of a 14″ x 6″ Pearl Matt Halpern Signature snare drum, from sister site Drummer’s review featuring…

  • 1.5mm Brass shell with black powder coated finish,
  • 3 x die cast air vents strategically placed around the shell,
  • powder-coated gloss black Pearl Mastercast hoops,
  • Evans Heavyweight Dry batter head coupled with Hazy 300 snare-side head,
  • 10 x swivel tube lugs (STL) with brass inserts,
  • oval-shaped badge with striking yellow rubber gasket,
  • Pearl SR150 snare strainer.

Pearl says…“Pearl Artist Matt Halpern designed each element of his Signature Snare Drum to complement -as well as contrast- the complex nature of his playing. Subtle touches, like black powder-coating and three shell vents help to temper the lively tone of its 1.5mm Brass shell. MasterCast die-cast hoops boost projection but Evans Heavyweight Dry heads deliver a controlled attack. Its SR150 Click-Lock strainer delivers increased sensitivity, while visual touches like black/brass STL Swivel Tube Lugs and striking yellow gaskets, serve to inspire the ideal performance. The end result is a snare drum with cutting, dry, versatility that responds quickly for aggressive play, and serves a variety of styles with an expanded tuning range.”
