6.5″ x 14″ Maple/Mahogany Snare Drum with Die-cast Hoops – Satin Mahogany
A-Pro Wood Snare for Any Application,This Pearl Free Floater snare drum has everything you expect in a pro snare. The meticulous 8-ply mahogany/maple shell is fat, balanced, and smooth, possessing maple’s top-end bite to cut through a mix and mahogany’s extended low end. Pearl’s Free-floating lug system gives the shell full agency to ring out unhindered by hardware. And a pair of Pearl MasterCast die-cast hoops gives this drum a dry, focused, studio-ready attack and powerful rimshots. Musiekwereld drummers know that players who are particular about snare tension will love Pearl’s Click-Lock Throw Off mechanism, which snaps into place to keep snares from loosening under heavy playing.

Maple has been the gold standard in drum making for years. Its projection and tonal balance make it a solid choice for just about any style of studio or live drumming. By blending in plies of mahogany, Pearl has managed to give this snare a warm, woody tone and smooth midrange that works for virtually any setting.
Free-floating lugs for better tone and shell swapping
Pearl’s Free-floating lug system provides a number of benefits over traditionally mounted lugs. First, keeping the lugs off the shell reduces drilling and prevents heavy hardware from inhibiting shell vibrations. This theoretically provides a purer tone and louder sound. Second, the floating lugs allow for more independent top and bottom tunings – you can crank your bottom head and keep your top head loose for a deep punch without sacrificing snare response. Finally, this system lets you swap in other Free-floating shells in a matter of minutes. This is a cost-effective way to audition other shell sizes and shell compositions for different music styles.
High-mass MasterCast hoops deliver a crisp, dry attack
A pair of MasterCast die-cast hoops give the Free-floating snare a dry attack, good projection and note separation, and powerful rimshots and cross-sticks. As a result, you may find you need less muffling on this drum compared to snares with triple-flanged hoops.
