Pearl Turns Up The Volume For The Touring Drummer With Masters Maple Series

today16 June, 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 history-making 7.5mm Masters Maple shell with a host of massive upgrades.

Blending six layers of hand-curated North American Maple from our Masterworks Veneer Vault, Pearl’s Superior Shell Technology process cures this premium ply selection for increased projection, improved sustain, and better sonic output than ever before. A precise 45-degree Bearing Edge completes the recipe to deliver power in the touring and stage environment.

“They’re really loud and very aggressive sounding drums,” says Nashville Session legend Shannon Forrest. “You could feel them through the walls in the room; you could feel the difference in volume coming off the kit!”

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 Series drum set reaches new levels of volume, fit for the world’s most prominent stages.
