The Pearl 20th Anniversary Philharmonic 14x5" Cast Bronze Snare Drum celebrates the 20 years of legendary performance of the Philharmonic snare drum series.
20 Years ago, Pearl launched the Philharmonic Series of professional quality concert snare drums and ushered in a new era of Legendary Performance. Prior to the Philharmonic Series, concert drums were largely modified and customized drumset drums - but the Philharmonic Series changed all that. Pearl Philharmonic drums delivered a powerful, dark, full tonal response right out of the box and quickly became the preferred sound of orchestras and artists around the world. From the lightest touch to the thickest roll - Philharmonic drums are right for the job.
During the development of the Philharmonic Series, Mr. Tom Freer, Pearl Performing Artist, and Percussionist with the Cleveland Orchestra was a guiding force behind the superb musicality and practicality of the world-famous SR500 Triad Silent Strainer design. In recognition of Mr. Freer's continuing contributions to the world's most successful concert snare drum line in history, Pearl is commemorating the Philharmonic Series 20th Anniversary with the release of the Tom Freer Ltd Edition 5mm Cast Bronze snare drum.
The 14x5.0 5mm thick cast bronze shell is plated in Black Nickel and hand engraved with a vintage floral pattern design and includes Mr. Freer's Signature around the badge. A newly refined and improved SR505 Triad Silent Strainer redefines convenience and performance with more precise fittings and operation including a quick release assembly plate that maintains snare adjustment positions while making head changes. Contemporary gold plated STL lugs are an update to the traditional tube lug and offer true swivel nut performance for effortless head seating and tuning. Gold plated die-cast hoops, Stainless steel tension rods and a custom snare assembly combination of individually adjustable coated cable, stainless steel cable, and wrap around guitar wire snares finish off this unique and powerful sounding instrument.
