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.
Beginning with our 13" tom and larger, Mahogany is added to the inner plies to increase the lower frequencies and accentuate the warmth of the Maple. The 14" toms and larger begin using our fully rounded bearing edge for even more shell contact. Our 18" and 20" bass drums use 4 inner thin plies of Mahogany with 2 outer thin plies of Maple. As the size of the bass drums increase, so does the amount of Mahogany. Our 22" and 24" bass drums incorporate an amazing 6 inner thin plies of Mahogany surrounded by 2 outer thin plies of Maple for the ultimate in solid responsive bass frequencies.
