Acrylic shells might not seem like the obvious or traditional choice, but there's a reason Pearl have been making them since 1973. Not only do they look stunning, but the shells give huge attack and amazing sustain.
As a result this a snare drum crack that will cut through any mix. The Crystal Beat is the perfect choice for live work.
History of Pearl
Pearl have been making musical equipment in Japan since 1946. In 1950 founder Katsumi Yanagisawa refocused the company's efforts towards drums before adding Latin percussion, Timpani and marching drums a few years later.
Since then Pearl have gone from strength to strength. A favourite with professional players all over the world including Dennis Chambers, Ian Paice and Joey Jordison to name a few, Pearl have created a reputation as solid as their hardware.
Here's what Pearl say about the Crystal Beat
The Original Seamless Acrylic Drum Set. Not just another transparent trap kit for the hipster set, Crystal Beat's original seamless shell is back, upgraded, and fortified for today's power player.
In 1973, Pearl set a benchmark in the drumming world with the introduction of Crystal Beat. A stunning combination of visual appeal and powerful sonic attack, Crystal Beat's revolutionary seamless construction was molded -not rolled- creating a strong acrylic drum system that could stand up to the rigors of touring.
Crystal Beat's toms include the Opti-Mount suspension system to remove undue shell pressure and increase sustain. 1.6mm triple-flanged hoops offer just the right amount of attack without sacrificing tonal body.
