Pearl’s Sonic-Select Shell Recipes Bring the Full Spectrum of Masterworks Choice into Focus
Pearl’s marquis-level Masterworks drums offer more custom choices for the pro drummer than any other drum company. Every element of the kit’s sound, look, and feel is player-selected and hand-crafted to heirloom perfection for the ultimate custom drum statement.
Drawing from two years of research and artist testing, Pearl presents Sonic-Select Shell Recipes: five distinct, studio-tested drum formulas each fine-tuned for their given performance application. “The Masterworks spectrum has a nearly-endless array of custom options,” states Glen Caruba, Pearl Corporation’s VP of Sales. “Filtering all that choice down to specific shell, edge, and hardware fusions is kind of like making a cake; different ingredients make different flavors that will appeal to different connoisseurs.”
The STUDIO Recipe features a thin Maple/Gumwood combination with Mastercast hoops; crafted to fully capture every nuance of the drummer’s performance with tonal clarity.
The HERITAGE Recipe recalls a classic age in drum-making by balancing the power of Maple with the warmth of Mahogany for enhanced lows and fat top-end slap.
The URBAN Recipe features a totally unique thin-shell combination of Birch, Gumwood, and Maple to sculpt a vibrant, powerful voice for the metropolitan drummer.
The STADIUM Recipe brings the classic elements of Pearl’s thick Custom Z Maple shell into the modern playing field, focusing on volume and power for the touring stage
Finally, the MODERN DRY Recipe represents new ground with a Maple/Gumwood/Mahogany shell blend for quick, top-heavy articulation with controlled low-end for today’s multifaceted beat creator
Each Masterworks Sonic-Select Shell Recipe kit creates a truly unique sonic signature, and is custom configurable in a choice of shell and hardware finishes to clearly define the custom drum experience for the discerning professional. Prices vary by size, with optional Artisan Exotic finish veneer available at a 10% premium. For more information on the Masterworks Series Drums, please visit www.pearldrums.com
