Vector Cast

Pearl is proud to introduce its new line of Hybrid Exotic Snare Drums, featuring three unique “hybrid” shell compositions to provide a new sonority in the snare drum market.

A single tiny strand can make all the difference in the world. Beginning with a composite material filament and resin thread, Pearl’s new VectorCast shell is formed around a mandrel in an X-pattern; creating a thin, high-strength shell that “flexes” with each strike. Its characteristic sound is both lively and fat, and is a vast departure from other synthetics like Acrylic or Carbon Fiber. 

Each Hybrid Exotic drum is 14” in width, and is offered in both a 5” and 6.5” depth, as well as a 8” depth for Kapur/Fiberglass shells.  All Hybrid Exotic Snare Drums are equipped with Pearl’s acclaimed SuperHoop II hoops, STL-100 lugs, SR-1000 strainer, Coated Ambassador batter head, and chrome hardware.

Pearl is proud to introduce its new line of Hybrid Exotic Snare Drums, featuring three unique “hybrid” shell compositions to provide a new sonority in the snare drum market.

Our Aluminum shells are famous for their “wood-like” tone with the cut of metal. We’ve made the shells 3mm thick for added rigidity which provides superb sensitivity and ultra-wide dynamic range from whisper quiet to blastisimo. They’re polished and lightly clear coated to protect the beauty of these fine instruments.Each drum is 14” in width, and is offered in both a 5” and 6.5” depth, as well as a 8” depth for Kapur/Fiberglass shells.

Kapur Fiberglass

Pearl is proud to introduce its new line of Hybrid Exotic Snare Drums, featuring three unique “hybrid” shell compositions to provide a new sonority in the snare drum market.

We pioneered the wood-fiberglass shell in the 1970’s. We’ve recreated these classics by blending Kapur, known for it’s rich low-end frequencies, with an inner layer of reflective fiberglass to give our Kapur/Fiberglass drums sensational warmth with boosted power and high-end cut. These marvelous instruments are finished in glimmering Ebony Lacquer with a Pearl Inlay.

Each drum is 14” in width, and is offered in both a 5” and 6.5” depth, as well as a 8” depth for Kapur/Fiberglass shells. All Hybrid Exotic Snare Drums are equipped with Pearl’s acclaimed SuperHoop II hoops, STL-100 lugs, SR-1000 strainer, Coated Ambassador batter head, and chrome hardware.
