The FFXCC Championship CarbonCore Snare

The FFXCC Championship CarbonCore Snare features a hybrid 6-ply Maple shell enhanced with an inner ply of ultra-light Carbon Fiber. The Maple helps maintain warmth of sound, while the Carbon Fiber boosts articulation and projection. Expressive, clear, and articulate throughout the entire dynamic range ...the magic is inside.

Features

6 PLY MAPLE SHELL 

Smooth, Warm, well-rounded tone. It's grain is the optimal choice for transparent finishing techniques.

INNER PLY OF CARBON FIBER

The Magic's Inside. This ultra-light weight material boosts desirable high frequencies in the drum's sound. In combination with the 6 ply Maple shell, this inner Carbon ply gives boosted projection with a more pronounced, more expressive articulation.

POLISHED ALUMiNIUM HARDWARE IS STANDARD

NEW Hardware option from Pearl- will shine under Stadium lights in an effect similar to chrome, without the cost of chrome-plated hardware that users would normally bear.

TOTALLY FREE-FLOATING SHELL

Unrestricted resonance and optimum projection

ALUMINUM ALLOY EDGE RING AND RIMS

Easily withstands today's super-high tensioning

6 ACOUSTICALLY LOCATED AIR VENTS

Enhanced snare sensitivity and stick response

16 STRAND SNARE SYSTEM

Unparalleled tuning capability with minimal effort

2 STRATEGICALLY PLACED SNARE GUARDS

Protects the hoop when set on the ground and also protects the snare system if accidentally dropped

Shell

CarbonCore FFXCC Snare Drum shells offer the most expressive and complete sound ever available on the field. The Hybrid shells consist of 6 plies of Maple with an added inner ply of ultra-light Carbon Fiber. The inner ply of Carbon Fiber improves pronuciation and boosts projection across the full dynamic spectrum, while the 6 plies of Maple maintain the great tone and warmth characteristic of Pearl Championship Series.

The FFXCC Aluminum Frame supports an aluminum alloy edge ring, providing you with a top bearing edge that can take all of the pressure necessary for today’s high tension heads. 2-ply reinforcement rings and a 45 degree bottom bearing edge provide shell stability and shape integrity while focusing the drum’s maximum sensitivity and volume.

Pearl’s Superior Shell Technology utilizes a proprietary technique for achieving the ultimate air chamber. It begins with select woods chosen for their unique acoustic attributes, milled to precise thickness with overlapping scarf joint seams, for a perfect air-tight fit. The wood plies are saturated with Pearl’s proprietary “AcoustiGlue” that permeates every pore and dries to the exact consistency of the wood for optimum resonance. Finally, the plies are formed in high-temperature molds with 1000 PSI of hydraulic pressure to produce perfect drum shells that exhibit superior tone, optimal resonance and extreme strength.
