Philharmonic African Mahogany

Philharmonic PHX African Mahogany concert snare drum features a unique shell design and the world-renowned SR500 Triad Strainer Systems. PHX drums are used for a wide range of playing styles and are available in 14” x 5”, 14” x 6.5”, 15” x 8”, and 16” x 16” sizes. PHX brings a Classic and Iconic American Sound to the Philharmonic Series and is as equally beautiful to look at as they are to play.


PHX Philharmonic snare drums feature a 4-ply African Mahogany shell with 4-ply Maple reinforcement rings, producing an incredibly full tonality with a natural low-frequency response that is ideal for concert applications. Both the 1580 and new 1616 models feature 6-ply Natural Maple hoops and 8 chrome Slim-Line Aluminum tube lugs with insulated low profile chrome claw hooks, as well as a special snare combination of Synthetic Gut and Heavy Coated Cables for a dark and full sound reminiscent of rope and field drums.


The 1450 and 1465 models include standard Philharmonic features such as Die-Cast hoops, 10 ClassicTube lugs with stainless steel tension rods, and Vintage cut snare beds. The SR500 strainer system is outfitted on these models with a combination of coated cable, Synthetic gut, stainless steel, and light cable snare materials for a whisper-soft response, and a warm projecting tone that will be heard in the largest venues.  


All PHX snare drums feature fully rounded bearing edges on both top and bottom for a fundamentally focused response and easy tuning with a variety of head styles. PHX Philharmonic African Mahogany drums are finished in a classy #210 Matte Walnut finish and backed by Pearl’s industry-leading Lifetime Warranty.
