To capture sonic perfection for true professional, Pearl’s latest experiments with different material combinations have yielded new tonal frontiers in our new Hybrid Exotic Series snare drums.
The purest representation of Pearl’s finest craftsmanship, Hybrid Exotic shell choices include spun-composite VectorCast™, dual-step seamless Cast Aluminum, and cross-laminated Kapur and Fiberglass, for the ultimate in power and prestige.
Beginning with an 8mm thick tube of solid, seamless metal, each Hybrid Exotic Cast Aluminum shell is slowly milled to 5mm at both edges (forming “Reinforcement Rings” for strength and added overtone control,) and 3mm at the center for increased resonance.
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.
