Pearl puts sound at the forefront with new Masters Maple/Gum Series Drums

23-01-2019 - Available in a pre-selected offering of hand-lacquered and wrapped finishes, each will feature a vault-cured EvenPly-Six layered premium North American Maple and Gum wood shell with 60-degree edges, Mastercast Die-Cast hoops, and Pearl’s CL bridge lugs.

Introduced in 2017, Pearl’s Sonic Select Shell Recipes gave a performance-formula focus to the boutique-level Masterworks series. Though each sonically-tested option represents the very best in form and function, the Studio Recipe won the favor of many Pearl Artists due to its explosive midrange warmth and extended low-end power.

Starting in 2019, the Studio Recipe will be available for a limited time as Masters Maple/Gum series drums. Available in a pre-selected offering of hand-lacquered and wrapped finishes, each will feature a vault-cured EvenPly-Six layered premium North American Maple and Gum wood shell with 60-degree edges, Mastercast Die-Cast hoops, and Pearl’s CL bridge lugs.

Make no mistake about it, Masters Maple/Gum is a Masterworks drum set,” states Pearl R&D Director Raymond Massey. “The only thing missing is the level of finish and hardware customization that comes with the Masterworks program. We’ve spent the last year sound-testing these drums to assure that the right combination of shell woods, hoops, and lugs was in the mix for an elite playing experience; and we couldn’t be prouder of the results!

Available in Hand-Rubbed Satin Natural Maple (#189) Black Diamond Pearl (#421,) Matte White Marine (#422,) and Platinum Gold Oyster (#453,) Masters Maple Gum will be offered in two shell packs with a limited selection of component add-on drums.
