Marching drums that changed the face of marching competition.
The FFXCC Championship CarbonCore Snare features a hybrid 6-ply maple shell enhanced with an inner ply of ultra-light Carbon Fiber. The maple helps maintain warmth of sound, while the Carbon Fiber boosts articulation and projection. Expressive, clear, and articulate throughout the entire dynamic range the magic is inside.
The Championship CarbonCore Snare shell produces a smooth, warm, well-rounded tone. This ultra-lightweight material boosts desirable high frequencies in the drum's sound. In combination with the 6-ply maple shell, this inner carbon ply gives boosted projection with a more pronounced, more expressive articulation.
Polished aluminium hardware will shine under stadium lights in an effect similar to chrome, without the cost of chrome-plated hardware that users would normally bear. Aluminum alloy edge ring and rims easily withstands today's super-high tensioning, while a 16-strand snare system provides unparalleled tuning capability with minimal effort. The shell is totally free-floating for unrestricted resonance and optimum projection.
Pearl's 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 Pearl's proprietary AcoustiGlue 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.
