Having pioneered the fusion of Fibreglass material to wood drum shells in the late 60’s, Pearl is proud to announce the return of Wood/Fibreglass Series drums as a limited production offering in 2015.
True to the legacy set by their innovative forefathers, new Wood/Fibreglass drums’ 7-ply Kapur-blended shell features an inner layer of Fibreglass that is hand-applied and lacquered through a painstakingly precise process. To further sculpt the tone of these unique drums, a sharp 45-degree edge is cut on the toms of each kit, while the bass drums feature a fully-rounded bearing edge.
Pearl’s limited production run of new Wood/Fibreglass drums will include traditionally-sized 3-piece and one 4 piece shell packs. Three customised lacquer finishes have been selected from the Reference Series palette including #151 Platinum Mist, #327 Satin Cocoa Burst and #400 White Marine Pearl, each in homage to the classic colours of the original wood/fibreglass kits.

True to the legacy set by their innovative forefathers, new Wood/Fibreglass drums’ 7-ply Poplar/Kapur shell features an inner layer of Fibreglass that is hand-applied and lacquered through a painstakingly precise process. To further sculpt the tone of these unique drums, a sharp 45-degree edge is cut on the toms of each kit, while the bass drums feature a fully-rounded bearing edge. This brings focus to Kapur wood’s darker tonal qualities and accentuates the sonic cut of Fibreglass; delivering a unique combination of warmth, projection and focused decay.
Wood/Fibreglass toms include the Opti-Mount suspension system to remove undue shell pressure and increase sustain. Pearl’s 2mm triple-flanged Superhoops add to the attack without sacrificing tonal body.
To best capture the essence of the Wood/Fibreglass sound, this limited production run of sets will be available as in two 4pc. Shell packs and one 3-pc. Shell pack. Each in “Traditional” sizes and depths.
