PEARL – DRUMSETS – REFERENCE SERIES
(Please note : Snare Drum, Hardware is additional)
Reference Series Drums are the product of what became a two and a half year search for harmonic perfection. Like keys on a piano, each drum in a kit should combine to create a singular instrument without losing its own sonic signature. With this concept in mind, Pearl explored the many options in the Masterworks crafting process to fInd the perfect combination of shell material, thickness, and edge profile for each individual size and type of drum. The result is a collective of individually-engineered drums dialed-in to the best sonic character for that drum’s intended voice.
Truly, the reference standard for quality and sound performance. REFERENCE SERIES: THE STANDARD TO WHICH ALL DRUMS ARE JUDGED.
Bridge style lugs and for tom leg brackets provide maximum resonance with minimal shell contact. Pearl’s revolutionary BRL lugs assure the ultimate in head seating and tuning integrity. The unique swivel function assures maximum resonance and sustain. Our telescoping bass drum spurs feature a high-grip rubber tip.
All Reference snare drums feature Pearl’s SR1000 Glide-Lock Strainer, which includes a locking throw of lever and tension knob that won’t loosen no matter how hard you play. Low friction technology permits smooth gliding action for ultra quiet, super precise motion.
What if each drum in your drum set was engineered as an instrument unto itself? What if each tom was designed to respond perfectly within the confines of its respective frequency without compromise over any other areas of your kit? This is the mission behind Reference Series: A complete set of individually engineered, incredible sounding drums. So forget what you think you know about drums and take a look at Reference Series, the most acoustically advanced drums in the world.
To fully understand these drums you must accept that the desired tonal characteristics of a rack tom are completely different than that of a bass drum, and to make these drums with the same composition would result in a compromise.
This is the mission behind Reference Series and Reference Pure: To create a perfect sounding drum set where every drum is optimally engineered to produce the best sound possible within its respective tonal range and diameter… drum by drum by drum.
