Premium Drums with Individualized Shell Compositions

Pearl voiced every drum in its lightweight Reference Pure shell pack with a custom blend of maple and African mahogany plies for optimal tone, crack, and sustain at every size, with custom bearing edges in each size class to provide just the right amount of bite and volume. The result is a pre-mixed sound that will inspire creativity every time you sit down to play. Low-contact STL swivel tube lugs and 1.6mm Fat Tone hoops bring out the full resonance of the drums and give the Reference Pure series a sleek modern look, complemented by a premium Pearl wrap that'll turn heads onstage or in the studio. Get ready to experience a new level of drumming satisfaction with the Pearl Reference Pure series 4-piece shell pack.

Pearl Reference Pure Classic 4-piece Shell Pack at a Glance:
  • Optimized wood composition gives each drum a custom voicing
  • Superior Shell Technology produces optimal tone, resonance, and strength
  • Premium low-mass drum hardware provides enhanced attack and sustain
Optimized wood composition gives each drum a custom voicing

Each drum on a kit serves a different purpose. That's why every drum size in this Reference Pure shell pack is built from a custom blend of woods for the best tone and performance: an all-maple 12" tom for warmth and balance; a 13" tom and 16" floor tom with added mahogany inner plies for powerful, controlled thump; and a 6-ply mahogany/2-ply maple 22" kick drum for punch and thunderous low end to fill a room. Sweetwater drummers find that recording and performing with the Reference Pure series shell kit takes less EQ to get the drums to sit in a mix.

Superior Shell Technology produces optimal tone, resonance, and strength

Drummers here at Sweetwater swear by Pearl's Superior Shell Technology, a proprietary technique that gives its Reference Pure shell pack the ultimate air chamber. Select woods are chosen based on their unique acoustic properties and are milled to optimal thickness with overlapping scarf joint seams for an airtight fit. Then the wood plies are saturated with Pearl's special AcoustiGlue, which permeates every pore and dries to the exact consistency of the wood for phenomenal resonance. Lastly, the plies are formed in high-temperature molds with 1000 PSI of hydraulic pressure to create drum shells with remarkable tone, vibrancy, and strength.

Premium low-mass drum hardware provides enhanced attack and sustain

Pearl quality doesn't stop at its unique shell compositions. Even the hardware used in the Reference Pure shell pack is designed to maximize the sound of the drums. Lightweight STL tube lugs allow shells to vibrate freely for sweet, singing sustain. Low-mass 1.6mm Fat Tone Hoops with hemmed and welded edges have strength and rigidity at the point of contact for a powerful attack. The Reference Pure shell pack features some of the highest quality drums in Pearl's catalog, with premium hardware to match its exquisite shell woods.

Pearl Reference Pure Classic 4-piece Shell Pack Features:
  • Custom shell composition for each drum provides optimal tone and response
  • Superior Shell Technology delivers vibrancy, resonance, and strength
  • STL swivel tube lugs allow your drums to vibrate freely for enhanced resonance
  • 1.6mm Fat Tone Hoops provide a powerful attack
  • Air Suspension Rubber Tips keep the floor tom perfectly positioned and increase low end
  • Stainless-steel tension screws for smooth, precise tensioning with absolutely no play
  • Bass drum claw hook with rubber hoop isolators prevents hoop scratches
  • Bass drum spurs with rubber or spike tips provide no-slip traction
  • NOTE: OptiMount tom-mounting system requires tom holders (sold separately)
