Features of Pearl Drum
Pearl Drum became famous for developing the world’s first fiber shell. In the 1970s, fiberglass shells were developed, and in the 1980s, the drum information magazine “Fill In”, which doubles as a product advertisement, was published and became recognized by many amateur players. The Pearl Drum is an environmentally independent instrument with a groundbreaking structure that is not adversely affected by humid climatic conditions. The sound of Pearl is a hard tone with a core, and the attack feeling is very impressive. Pearl Drum is probably the most recommended drum in the world in terms of ease of listening and the ability of the microphone to pick up sound efficiently.
