Free Floating 14"x8" Mahogany Snare

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 an 8-ply, 10mm African Mahogany shell for shorter decay and increased volume. Presenting the ultimate in throaty, deep snare growl, the darker nature of its color and grain is apparent in its lower-end tones.

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. (shown on the FTAL1480)
