Pearl Reimagines A Premium Maple Favourite With Masters Maple Pure

today31 May, 2023


Since 1993, Pearl’s Masters Series has set a standard for the very best in performance-centered instruments for the pro drummer. In celebration of three decades of Masters quality and excellence, Pearl reimagines the original 5mm MMX shell with Masters Maple Pure.

Blending four layers of hand-curated North American Maple with 4-ply Reinforcement-Rings from our Masterworks Veneer Vault, this premium Masters shell formula delivers a sonic fusion that is equally at home on stage as it is in the studio. A precise 45-degree Bearing Edge completes the recipe for near-field resonance and sharp top-end attack fit for varied pro environments.

“When you hit these drums, you get that initial tonality that shapes what you’d normally associate with the original Masters sound,” says Nashville Session legend Shannon Forrest. “But now there’s all this back-end sustain on the drums. Sustain that you could never get out of drums from that era.”

Professional Pearl standards like Mastercast Die-Cast Hoops, CL Bridge Lugs, and revamped bass drum spurs and floor tom brackets assure optimum performance. At the same time, the ground-breaking R2 Air Tom Suspension system’s four-point mounting platform delivers optimum tone and resonance at any angle.

With a dizzying array of Premium and Custom finishes from which to choose, each Masters Maple Pure Series drum set reaches new levels of sonic purity, fit for the most discerning professional player.
