Marching drums that changed the face of marching competition.
Used by today's top DCI corps, Pearl FFX Championship Series snare drums have won more than their share of High Percussion Awards. The combination of six plies of 100% maple free-floating in a super lightweight aircraft aluminum frame creates a force to be reckoned with.
The Championship Maple Snare shells natural balance of mid-to-high frequencies brings the FFX the voice that set an industry standard and changed the face of corps competition. Pearls Superior Shell Technology is used to make a 6-ply, free-floating shell out of maple, the drum industrys premium for dynamic range, sensitivity, and unsurpassed projection. Because of the maple shells strength and reliability, your corps or band can compete in all climate conditions.
The FFX Aluminum Frame supports an aluminum-alloy edge ring, providing you with a top bearing edge that can take all of the pressure necessary for todays high tension heads. Two-ply reinforcement rings and a 45-degree bottom bearing edge provide shell stability and shape integrity while focusing the drums maximum sensitivity and volume.
Pearls Superior Shell Technology utilizes a proprietary technique for achieving the ultimate air chamber. It begins with select woods chosen for their unique acoustic attributes, milled to precise thickness with overlapping scarf joint seams, for a perfect air-tight fit. The wood plies are saturated with Pearls proprietary œAcoustiGlue that permeates every pore and dries to the exact consistency of the wood for optimum resonance. Finally, the plies are formed in high-temperature molds with 1000 PSI of hydraulic pressure to produce perfect drum shells that exhibit superior tone, optimal resonance and extreme strength.
