Free Floating 14"x5" Maple Snare Drum

Model Number

FTMM1450

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 6-ply (7.5mm) SST North American Maple Shell for fat, centered tonality and open resonance. Included Mastercast hoops, combined with the Free Floating frame, increase total weight for higher volume and brighter impact strike.

Features

6-ply (7.5mm) SST North American Maple Shell

Widely accepted as the prime material for purely centered tone, its fat timbre, combined with the Free Floating frame, increase total weight for higher volume and brighter impact strike.

Mastercast Die-Cast Hoops

For superior strength, rigid tuning stability, and added volume and attack.

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.
