This Pearl Free Floater snare drum has everything you expect in a pro snare. The sleek 1.2mm aluminum shell has a sensitive touch and plenty of strong lows, beefy mids, and bite to cut through a mix. Pearl's Free-floating lug system gives the shell full agency to ring out unhindered by hardware. And a pair of Pearl MasterCast die-cast hoops gives this drum a dry, focused, studio-ready attack and powerful rimshots. Drummers know that players who are particular about snare tension will love Pearl's Click Lock Throw Off mechanism, which snaps into place to keep snares from loosening under heavy playing.
