Pearl is proud to introduce the all new Philharmonic Concert Snare Drums, featuring the revolutionary Triad Silent Strainer System. These incredible drums represent state of the art design and craftsmanship, combined with groundbreaking innovation allowing the player unprecedented control over the tone, dynamics and performance of the instrument. A proprietary combination of three unique snare sets, using both graduated and even tensioning, offers seamless timbral overlapping and ultra-smooth dynamic transition, plus a greatly extended dynamic and sensitivity range. The new Triad Silent Strainer provides three individual tension adjusters allowing you to fine tune the optimum tension for each type of snare material, and a single global adjuster is used for overall tension. All snares can be effortlessly changed by simply loosening the adjuster and one drum key rod.

Pearl’s Philharmonic Concert Snare Drums are available in three different shell materials to compliment a wide variety of playing situations, and each offers a 5"X14" and a 6.5"X14" choice in size. And include Die-Cast Hoops, Tube-Lugs, Remo Renaissance Heads, and Vintage-Style snare beds.

The Philharmonic Maple drum (PHM) features a shell painstakingly hand formed from a single, 7.5mm thick ply of fully aged prime Maple.

The Philharmonic Ply Maple drum (PHP) features a 7.5mm thick 6 ply Maple shell.

The Philharmonic Cast Aluminum Shell Snare Drum (PHA) features a 3mm cast shell and offers a warmth and richness similar to wood, but with the increased brightness and attack characteristic of metal shell snare drums.
