Next level perfection for the drummer who knows the difference.

Introducing Pearl's most affordable 100% maple snare drum. Maple, known for its warm, rich tone, has long been the choice wood of professional drummers worldwide.

Pearl originally created the now legendary Export Series to deliver quality drums at an affordable price. Export spent the next 20 years as the number one selling drum-set in the world. The lessons learned from this extraordinary success led Pearl to create a new series of drums that far exceeds the standard set by Export. Welcome Pearl's Vision Series, the highest quality drums in their class, period. Incredible-sounding.

Dont buy this

By DrSnaX

See all my reviews

I got this snare with my vision kit. The toms in this kit are great, this snare is NOT great. What the other reviewers say is true, the overtones are incredibly prominent and sound aweful. I dont know how pearl made this snare quite so bad as i've tried several different heads and different tunings and never enjoyed the sound that i got from it.

Somewhat disapoint

By redgretsch18

I know its a low to middle end snare but im disappoint. The overtones are pretty bad and my god it only has two settings high and really high. This drum is only standable with moongels and its still pretty bad

Excellent snare for the money.

By Barry Schiffman

from Ca.

I can't believe people are bitching about the overtones! Use an Evans e-ring or some moon gel and you have a fat sounding snare at an excellent price.

I got this with my new pearl vmx kit, at first I really like the sound. But the overtones and after-ring effect of this drum is enormous. Perhaps its my tuning or head choice, but as of now im not too happy. I will try different heads, but I have already did all tuning methods. Overall, if your looking into this drum, I would go with the pearl sensitone steel snare drum.
