Pearl MCX1455S/C Masters Custom Maple Snare at a Glance:
  • Why choose maple?
  • Advantages of using die-cast hoops
  • World-class drum products for a wide spectrum of world-class players

Why choose maple?
The beauty of the maple snare shell is twofold: you get the snap and projection you need to really cut through a live or studio mix, while getting enough tonal balance to achieve a full sound. The 5.5" x 14" 6-ply MCX 1455S/C Masters Custom Maple Snare provides the kind of classic sound you want, but still lets you make yourself heard in the midst of a loud band.

Advantages of using die-cast hoops
While it's important that your hoops are strong and resilient enough to stay true and tune properly, their contribution to a drum's sound shouldn't be overlooked. Die-cast hoops keep their shape more consistently than do flanged hoops, since die-cast hoops are "born" round. What's more, the tension rods make just the right contact with a die-cast hoop for more precise tuning. You'll get better resonance, a cleaner attack, and bigger-sounding rim shots with die-cast hoops, too.

World-class drum products for a wide spectrum of world-class players
From rock to funk, country to punk, Latin, world music, and beyond, Pearl drum products are played by the best. Artists such as Omar Hakim, Frank Vilardi, Chad Smith, Tico Torres, Stanley Randolph, Billy Thomas, and many, many more choose Pearl drums to showcase their world-class talents. Whether you're a touring pro or a beginning player, Pearl has drums to suit you. Call your Sweetwater Sales Engineer and find out more about the Pearl products we carry.
