Pearl begins the process of creating a Reference Pure Shell Pack by choosing thinner plies of prized Maple, hand selected Birch and rare African Mahogany. While regular Reference drums use a rotating combination of both 1.6mm and .9mm wood plies in its shell construction, the Reference Pure uses only .9mm thick plies in its construction. The result is a thin, resonant, extremely vibrant yet powerful near-field experience for the player with the accentuation effects of Birch and African Mahogany placed exactly where they are needed most. Pearl's Reference Pure features super low-mass STL Tube Lugs and thin Fat Tone Hoops.
Low Mass STL Tube Lugs: Minimal contact with the shell and a small mass gives the drums the ability to vibrate freely for ultimate resonance. Unlike standard tube lugs that often bind when tension rods are misaligned, STL Lugs feature a swivel nut that keeps the tension rods perfectly aligned.
Fat Tone Hoops: Pearl's new 1.6mm Fat Tone Hoops combine low mass with exclusive hemmed and welded edges. These edges add strength and rigidity at the point of contact for great-sounding rim shots and cross sticks.
