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 1.2mm spun seamless Aluminum shell for shorter, fat response, and 42-strand Ultra-Sound snares for increased sensitivity. Delivers the ultimate in short, dry snare punch with just the right amount of sizzle to make the backbeat sharp.

Features

1.2mm Aluminum Shell

Seamless, spun Aluminum for quick response at the strike. Its drier tone is perfect for a wide range of tunings and styles.

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. 

Ultra-Sound 42-Strand Snares

Features low mass rust-proof uncoated snare wires that respond to the lightest touch. Low mass, ultra thin .6mm Phosphor Bronze End Plates fit closely to the head for ultra sensitive sound.
