Pearl's all new Reference Pure proudly builds upon the legacy started by Pearl's original Reference Series Drums by using the exact shell composition formula, the same targeted task specific bearing edges to create a thin shell, highly resonant, lower mass version of the original.
Reference Pure toms feature 6 ply shells that are 5.4mm thick and 8 ply floor toms and bass drums 7.2mm thick. 8" and 10" toms blend Maple and Birch while 12" toms are 100% Maple. Floor toms and bass drums blend Maple and African Mahogany.
Reference Pure Series drums use a combination of task specific bearing edges and 3 time proven woods: Birch, Maple, and African Mahogany. Using Maple as a sole material has long been the traditional choice for shells and for good reason. Maple provides smooth, well balanced tone that is perfect for a 12" tom. Subsequently, all Reference Series 12" toms are composed of 6 thin plies of Maple. The only single wood shell in the series. Our 10" and 8" toms receive 4 thin plies of Maple with 2 inner thin plies of Birch for cut and attack. And for maximum response, all 13" and smaller toms have a rounded 45° bearing edge.
