  • Item Details

    The Pearl 30" x 16" PBDM Championship Maple Marching Bass Drum is made with 6 plies of 100% maple, providing you with a rich low sound, a focused fundamental, and plenty of strength to handle high tensions and the rigors of the road.

    Angle-cut bearing edges enhance the amount of resonance the head and drum can produce, giving you longer and fuller sounds out of the bass line.

    2" wide, 6-ply maple hoops (with a high gloss finish) are absolutely strong enough to handle the high tensions found on a marching bass drum, supplemented with oversized triple-reinforced claws that can be cranked higher than any drum corps requires.

    Lightweight single-piece aluminum lug casings keep the weight of the drum low, while 6mm case-hardened tension bolts apply a huge amount of pressure without slipping or breaking.

    Six air vents have been acoustically located along the shell to allow air to escape with each hit, creating a great amount of response and low, punchy projection.

    Pearl provides you with a 3-year warranty on the shells, giving you multiple marching seasons without worrying about your equipment.

    This model is available in two stock wrap finishes: Pure White and Midnight Black. These same drums are also available in a stock Silver Sparkle Lacquer finish.

    Pearl offers a wide selection of custom lacquer finishes as well as school-colored, school-budget-conscious Varsity Series Lacquer Finishes. If you wish to order drums with custom or Varsity finishes, please call us at 1-866-792-0143.
