Pearl.... The Beginning, The Heritage, The Vision
The success that Pearl Percussion Products experience today can be traced back to a heritage of dedication to quality and value for over 63 years. Founded on April 2, 1946, in a small shack in Tokyo, Katsumi Yanagisawa began a music stand manufacturing business with an ultimate goal …” to be a major manufacture of all percussion products.”
The Pearl History - A Tradition of Excellence
Since 1945, Pearl's mission has been to be the absolute best: to have the best quality, the best functionality, the best durability, and the best sound. Research is constant and development is uncompromising in the pursuit of being the best, and when it comes to sound, Pearl determination to explore new and innovative shell materials and develop innovative new shell-making techniques (such as our Superior Shell Technology) is relentless. Pearl commitment to quality, innovation, and sound has set the direction of the drum set industry of today and will surely dictate where the industry goes in the future
Over 40 Years of Innovation!
Pearl Superior Shell Technolgoy utilizes a proprietary technique for achieving the ultimate air chamber. It begins with select woods choses for their unique acoustic attributes, milled to precise thickness with overlapping scarf joint seams for perfect air-tight fit. The wood plies are saturated with Pearl's proprietary "AcoustiGlue" that permeates every pore and dries to the exact consistency as the wood for optimum resonance. Finally the plies are formed in high-temparature molds with 1000PSI of hydraulic pressure to produce perfect drum shells that exhibit superior tone, optimal resonance and extreme strength.
