Marching drums that changed the face of marching competition.
There is no other sound in the world of Marching Arts like the Pearl Championship Tenors. Designed with today's most renowned Drum & Bugle Corps, the Pearl Championship Tenors offer a 6-ply 100% maple shell. This drum is the perfect compliment to Pearl's FFX snare drums. 2.3mm Steel SuperHoop II rims are anchored in place by high-strength 6mm case-hardened tension bolts. Lightweight aluminum lug casings provide extreme strength and evenly disperse head pressure when aggressively tuned.
Championship Maple Tenor Shells have a natural balance of mid-to-high frequencies that set the industry standard and changed the face of corps competition. Pearls Superior Shell Technology is used to make a 6-ply shell out of maple, the drum industrys premium for dynamic range, sensitivity, and unsurpassed projection.
These six plies are then enhanced with 2-ply support rings to add tremendous shell stability and shape integrity. Fully rounded bearing edges provide full head-to-shell contact, increase kinetic energy transfer to the shell, and create maximum shell resonance. In addition, Pearls tenors are scientifically proportioned from diameter to depth, allowing optimum shell vibration. All of these details create Pearls extraordinary tenor sound.
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.
