To elevate the playing field for today’s advancing drummer, Pearl has drawn on 70 years of award-winning drum craftsmanship to create new Decade Maple series drums. As the first all Maple lacquered drums, Pearl Decade kit is built to push the boundaries of performance and value and project your drumming voice with authority.
Decade’s 6-ply/5.4mm all Maple drum shell is what sets it apart from the other players in the field. The final product of ten years of process and material refinement, each cross-laminated ply incorporates Pearl’s proprietary Superior Shell Technology. The resulting thin (but powerfully strong) shell reacts quickly to the stroke, producing beautifully resonant highs and thundering lows.
Pearl’s Superior Shell Technology utilizes a proprietary technique for achieving the ultimate air chamber.
Decade’s low-mass/low-contact shell hardware assures optimum shell performance and rock-solid durability. Features include Uni-Lock gearless tom arms, insulated die-cast claw hooks, R40 Air Suspension Floor Tom feet, and a newly-designed mini lug.
