Masters Maple Reserve

A Classic Formula For Sonic Greatness

Masters Maple Reserve drums deliver a balanced tonal combination of powerful midrange and smooth resonant shimmer. Featuring our original Masters Series Maple drum shell formula, Pearl uses only North American Maple veneers from our Masterworks supply vault to give Masters Maple Reserve a sophisticated, vintage flavor. All Masters drums use Pearl's proprietary 38-step lacquering process for refined looks and a singular, distinctive player experience. Special colour options are available for the professional drummer who needs an extra touch.

New 2020 Finishes: Light Amber #842 and Red Burst Triband #839.

"MRV shell gives a sound which has elements of old and new. There’s the warm, reverberant timbre of the thin-shelled maple, the focusing of the re-rings, plus the accurate tuning and snappy assault enabled by the precise edges."
