Competitor Snare Drum shells feature 6-ply Poplar/Kapur shells crafted by Pearl’s Secure 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. Similar to Pearl’s Championship Tenors, Competitor Tenors prominently feature fully rounded bearing edges that provide full head to shell contact, increase kinetic energy transfer to the shell, and create maximum shell resonance. Mahogany shells bring together traditional materials and legendary Pearl craftsmanship to create high quality tenors at a tremendous value.
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.
Pearl Competitor Tenors are available in Trio and Quad configurations:
