Competitor CMSX Snare Drum shells feature 8-ply Mahogany shells crafted by Pearl’s Secure Shell Technology. 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.
SST 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.
Wood marching shells are guaranteed against material failure or going out of round for a period of three (3) years from the date of the original purchase. Metal hoops are guaranteed against material failure or going out of round for a period of one (1) year from the date of the original purchase. Drum hardware such as lugs, claws, tension rods, swivel nuts, strainers, and nuts and bolts are guaranteed against material failure and manufacturing defects for a period of one (1) year from the date of the original purchase.
