Each Pearl Free Floating snare model's Task-Specific shell recipe is tailored for a unique tonal voice and application. Like the ringing call of a sounding bell, the Brass 14"x5" drum delivers clarion mid-to-high range projection with bright, breathy overtones.

Free Floating 14"x5" Brass Snare Drum

Model Number

FTBR1450

Just as each player has an individual voice, shell materials -particularly on snare drums- react differently to the drummer's unique approach. This is why Pearl's Free Floating snares have been custom-tailored to fit a specific task by model.

Pearl's revolutionary die-cast Free Floating chassis allows each shell to speak with a voice that is uninhibited by shell hardware, for true tonal purity. Individually chosen by size, shell type, and application, each drum is true to the Free Floating concept, and gives the player an unrestrained voice within the tonal spectrum.

Features a 1mm polished Brass shell that delivers crisp full-spectrum sound, both bright in smacking punch and warm in overtone.

Features

1mm Brass Shell

A thin rolled shell that sings with sharp, inspiring power and sustained overtone.

Mastercast Die-Cast Hoops

Engineered to enhance the overall weight and volume of each shell and stay true under constant play.

Click-Lock Strainer

(US Patent #9082376) The revolutionary SR160F features an inner "C"-shaped nylon clip that attaches the throw off arm to the tension dial, preventing the lever from disengaging and the tension dial from loosening, even when the tension is very low.

Free-Floating Chassis

Pearl's revolutionary snare system suspends the shell in a die-cast chassis with only the batter head contacting the edge; allowing uninhibited tonal body, resonance, and volume.

Task-Specific Sound and Performance

One of eight Task-Specific snare models, each one offers a unique voice engineered to fit a specific task by size and shell density for any sonic situation.
