WOOD FIBERGLASS

Having pioneered the fusion of Fiberglass material to wood drum shells in the late 60’s, Pearl is proud to announce the return of Wood Fiberglass Series drums as a limited production offering in 2015.

FEATURES

Wood Fiberglass

True to the legacy set by their innovative forefathers, new Wood/Fiberglass drums’ 7-ply Kapur-blended shell features an inner layer of Fiberglass that is hand-applied and lacquered through a painstakingly precise process. To further sculpt the tone of these unique drums, a sharp 45-degree edge is cut on the toms of each kit, while the bass drums feature a fully-rounded bearing edge.

Pearl’s limited production run of new Wood Fiberglass drums will include three traditionally-sized 3-piece shell packs.

SHELL COMPOSITION

“This is a truly exciting moment in Pearl’s 74-year history,” states Pearl’s Director of Product Development, Raymond Massey. “Pearl was first-to-market with a synthetic-fused organic drum shell, and produced a tone that would define the sound of the recordings of that era.” True to the legacy set by their innovative forefathers, new Wood Fiberglass drums’ Kapur-blended shell features an inner layer of Fiberglass that is hand-applied and lacquered through a painstakingly precise process.

To further sculpt the tone of these unique drums, a sharp 45-degree edge is cut on the toms of each kit, while the bass drums feature a fully-rounded bearing edge. This brings focus to the Kapur wood’s darker tonal qualities and accentuates the sonic cut of Fiberglass; delivering a unique combination of warmth, projection, and focused decay.

 

DRUM HARDWARE

Wood Fiberglass toms include the Opti-Mount suspension system to remove undue shell pressure and increase sustain.
