Championship CarbonPly Bass Shells bring an exciting new edge to the low frequencies that drive your corps. Pearl’s Superior Shell Technology is used to make a 6-ply shell out of maple, the drum industry’s premium for dynamic range, sensitivity, and unsurpassed projection. This Maple shell, already exceptionally strong and stable, is then encapsulated by two layers of a unique Carbon Fiber wrap. Pearl’s 45 degree bearing edge maximizes the volume of these thunderous air chambers..
To compliment these shells, 2” wide, 6-ply, high gloss black maple hoops are secured by extra wide claws to provide evenly dispersed grip and consistent tuning. This new sonic combination provides the unique, next generation bass sound, all made possible by Pearl craftsmanship.
Pearl’s Superior Shell Technology utilizes a proprietary technique for achieving the ultimate air chamber. It begins with select woods chosen for their unique acoustic attributes, milled to precise thickness with overlapping scarf joint seams, for a perfect air-tight fit. The wood plies are saturated with Pearl’s proprietary “AcoustiGlue” that permeates every pore and dries to the exact consistency of the wood for optimum resonance. Finally, the plies are formed in high-temperature molds with 1000 PSI of hydraulic pressure to produce perfect drum shells that exhibit superior tone, optimal resonance and extreme strength.
