Competitor CMSX Snare Drum shells feature 6-ply Poplar/Kapur shells crafted by Pearl’s Superior Shell Technology. Mahogany’s excellent response in mid to low registers, fostered by the wood’s loosely packed cellulose structure, quickly established it as a standard in the drum making industry during the early 20th century. Pearl Competitor Mahogany CMSX shells bring reliability and fine craftsmanship to a light, mobile, and affordable high tension drum.
The CMSX Frame supports an aluminum alloy edge ring and Pearl Superhoops, providing you with a winning combination that can support today’s long lasting batter heads without ultra high tension. Pearl’s standard 45 degree bearing edge focuses the drum’s maximum sensitivity and volume.
Pearl’s 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.
