Fusing reliability and flexibility for today’s demanding gigging environment, Pearl has developed Modern Utility: a line of no-nonsense, well-appointed snare drums priced with the active working player in mind.

“Being part of the drumming community here in Nashville, we’ve learned most players have heard and seen it all,” confesses Kevin Packard, Pearl’s Combo Marketing Manager.  “With so many playing situations in one town, drummers just want reliable gear that will deliver the goods without a flashy message or promise.  Modern Utility snares let you do that.”

Vital instruments tailored to make the gig great, Modern Utility’s five snare models each feature a 6-ply/5mm all Maple SST shell.  Well-appointed with our CL Bridge Lug and smooth SR700 strainer, each Modern Utility snare is priced to allow the active working player an expanded voice, is flexible enough to add to any set-up, and strong enough to stand up to constant play.

Featuring a choice of Matte Natural (#224) or Black Ice (#234) Lacquer finishes, the Modern Utility line-up contains the following models:

Modern Utility 12”x7”     Snare (MUS1270M)
Modern Utility 13”x5”     Snare (MUS1350M)    
Modern Utility 14”x5.5”  Snare (MUS1455M)    
Modern Utility 14”x6.5”  Snare (MUS1465M)    
Modern Utility 14”x8”     Snare (MUS1480M)
