Pearl is proud to introduce a One Piece Maple Solid Snare Drum in 14" x 6.5" size.

Since 1989 Pearl makes one-ply steam-bent maple shells. With its distinctive and highly desirable warmth, depth and smooth sensitivity, these one-ply Maple drums give drummers a true timeless tone.

As it is made from a single piece, premium-grade Maple into a strong and beautiful sounding drum, this superb snare is a true piece of craftsmanship.
