Features

4 ply 100% Maple Shell

Championship Pipe Band Bass Drums feature 4-ply, 100% Maple shells, providing a rich sonority with supreme strength.

Pearl's shells are created via our Superior Shell Technology, utilizing 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 optimal 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.

1.5" Maple Hoops

1.5"-wide, 6-ply Maple hoops feature excellent strength and durability, allowing for even tension around the head.

45-Degree Bearing Edges

45-degree bearing edges provide optimal head-to-shell contact for a robust yet articulate sound.

3 Air Vents

Acoustically placed to allow for quick air exit for unsurpassed playing response and added projection

Aluminum Alloy Hardware

Championship Pipe Band Bass Drums feature aluminum alloy hardware, designed to easily withstand today's tension requirements yet still be incredibly lightweight.

Over-sized Triple Reinforced Claws

Over-sized to disperse tension around the hoop and to exceed the tension requirements of modern tuning schemes
