Pearl are one of the largest drum brands in the world. They have maintained a solid reputation for decades, providing high-quality drums and percussion to musicians looking for incredible-sounding gear that will last. With a huge amount of renowned players using their products, you know that they mean business.
Despite their affordable price-point, the Modern Utility snare drums still pack a punch and provide you with a great tone.
Woods and Construction:
The 6-ply, 5.4mm maple shell delivers a resonant and pronounced low-end, with a punchy mid-range that will cut through a busy mix. The 8”depth keeps it sounding focussed and responsive, so you don’t lose any snap when playing hard. You can therefore use this versatile snare for a variety of genres and scenarios.
A timeless satin black finish means this snare won’t look out of place in any setup, with the chrome-coloured hardware giving a classy look.
The SR700 strainer offers you a smooth action when changing the snare wires in on or off position. The tension adjuster firmly locks into place, so that you won’t have to worry about it undoing even if you play super-hard!
