Pearl's 14" x 5" Hybrid Exotic Cast Aluminum Snare Drum has a very woody tone and cuts through loud music like any other metal drum. Since the 3mm shell is made from a casting, rather than bending a sheet of aluminum, it's much drier than you would expect and has few overtones.
2mm reinforcement rings keep the shell truly in round despite the intense pressure caused by a tightly tuned head. A shell this thick also allows it to speak easily across a wide range of dynamic levels!
It's equipped with Spin-Tight Tension Rods, which require the use of the special K-180 drum key (included). Each rod is fitted with a hex screw that, when tightened separately from the rod, will lock the rod in place. It is guaranteed to stay put no matter how hard you play.
This drum also got an SR-1000 Glide-Lock Throw-Off, SuperHoop II hoops that make tuning easy, and a Remo Coated Ambassador batter head.
The shell has been polished and lightly clear-coated to give it a sheen that will last for years and years.
