Shells

Championship Maple Shells

The Championship Maple Snare shell’s natural balance of mid to high frequencies brings the FFX the voice that set the industry standard and changed the face of corps competition. Pearl’s Superior Shell Technology is used to make a six ply, free floating shell out of maple, the drum industry’s premium for dynamic range, sensitivity, and unsurpassed projection. Because of the maple shell’s strength and reliability, your corps can compete in all climate conditions.

The FFX 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.

Championship Maple Shells

Championship Maple Tenor Shells have a natural balance of mid to high frequencies that set the industry standard and changed the face of corps competition. Pearl’s Superior Shell Technology is used to make a six ply shell out of maple, the drum industry’s premium for dynamic range, sensitivity, and unsurpassed projection.

These six plies are then enhanced with two ply support rings to add tremendous shell stability and shape integrity. Fully rounded bearing edges provide full head to shell contact, increase kinetic energy transfer to the shell, and create maximum shell resonance. In addition, Pearl’s tenors are scientifically proportioned from diameter to depth, allowing optimum shell vibration. All of these details create Pearl’s extraordinary tenor sound.

Bass Drum - PBD

The Championship Bass Drums were designed with the same formula used to design the FFX snare drum and Championship tenors. 6 plies of 100% Maple shells offer maximum resonance and huge sub-frequency projection. To compliment the Maple shells, 2" wide 6 ply Maple hoops are secured by extra wide claws for an evenly dispersed pressure for consistent tuning. Lightweight one-piece high strength aluminium castings and 6mm case-hardened tension bolts provide uncompromising strength and durability for years of high performance use.
