Pearl CMSX 14x12" Marching Snare Drum High Tension - White - Description

Pearl CMSX 14x12" Marching Snare Drum High Tension - White


The CMSX snare drum offers many of the same features of the FFX Series snares. This includes the legendary free-floating shell technology with an aluminum edge ring that relieves all better head tension from the 6-ply Poplar/Kapur shell. A direct descendent of the Championship Series, you could say competition is in its blood.

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 Superior Shell Technology 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.
