The Stadium Sonic Select Recipe
The shells are all maple 8 ply snares and toms with the floor toms and bass drums being 10 ply. The bearing edges are 60 degree outer cut to increase brightness and limited overtones. The hoops are the 2.3mm super hoop II on all the drums apart from the snare which have MasterCast die cast hoops to help give your rim shot that extra kick. The lugs are the very functional BRL lugs which swivel and help head seating and tuning.
What do these specs mean?
The sound that this design will deliver is full bodied with great attack neutral midrange with great low. This recipe has taken some influences from the MMX and CZX from Pearl Past so has designed to be heavier thicker drums to give a powerful centred sonic presence. As the name says this design focused on use for stage and touring performance where power and volume is important. The drums are powerful and bright but are not to uncontrollable and perfect for big performances.
