6 inner plies of Birch unite with 14 outer plies of Maple for a staggeringly thick 20 ply shell. The 45 degree bearing edge brings all 20 plies to the party in a highly focused sweet spot. This projects the volume that you would expect from such a thick shell without losing sensitivity or articulation. The state-of-the-art in modern hardware adorns these snares to maximize every nuance of the shell construction. Available in 3 sizes to perfectly suite your personal desires.
All Reference Snare Drums feature Pearl’s SR-1000 Glide-Lock Strainer, which includes a locking throwoff lever and tension knob that won’t loosen no matter how hard you play. Low-friction technology permits smooth gliding action for ultra quiet, super precise motion.
