Made in the USA with time-honored precision, Pearl's Music City Custom Solid Shell Snare Drums are uniquely refined percussion instruments that are painstakingly crafted to bring new life to your drumming voice.
Crafted by a singular artisan with time-refined precision, Pearl Music City Custom Solid Shell Snare Drums are uniquely-refined percussion instruments crafted to elevate your entire approach to drums and drumming.
Beginning with a steam-treated plank of premium North American maple, this Music City Custom solid shell is shaped using an old-world crafting technique derived from ship-building.
Hand-milled to a smooth, uniform 8mm thickness and combined with Solid Maple reinforcement rings, each shell is CNC drilled, hand-finished, and assembled at Pearl's Music City Custom Shop in Nashville, TN.
Finally, each snare is adorned with our elegant single STL swivel lugs, Stainless Steel rods, and SuperHoop II triple-flanged hoops for precise tuning and playability.
The distinctive tonal nature of these one-of-a kind instruments makes each Music City Custom Solid Shell snare drum truly unique, and a true an investment in the ultimate drumming voice.
This is Pearl's top-of-the-line snare drum, and while very expensive, this could very well be your desert island snare. Crisp highs, a fat midrange, and bottomless sensitivity are just the tip of the iceberg when discussing the way this snare drum sounds. It feels amazing under stick and sounds incredible at all tuning ranges. A spectacular maple snare!
We have a few other MCC Solid Shell snares in stock, and they all sound slightly different. We recommend you listen to all of them!
