Well? Will there? Almost seems like a shame not to have a matching snare. Plus I bet the acrylic would sound good in a snare drum context.

They have shells for the FF snare, do they not?

Every picture I've seen of the Crystal Beat from NAMM has a matching acrylic snare.

Thank goodness your talking about Crystal Beats. At first look, I. Was afraid you were talking about CB700 drums. :)

They're all Free Floaters, though. The spec sheet on Pearl's site seems like they're selling the shell only, rather than making a complete FF acrylic drum available at this time. But the good news is that they are avaiable in four sizes.

Im thinking that I may just get the shell and Have edges and snare beds cut and Just add lugs for a non FF snare to match my Kit

Maybe their in-house acrylic shells can't withstand the higher loads exerted by snare drum tensions, causing them to crack around lug holes.

Not too unlike the Ref-lug incident.

I think Pearl really Missed the boat by not offering a snare for these, everyone doesnt care for the FF

Pearl won't even make a pretend CB snare, they're not going to make a real one:

What do you mean by "pretend" CB snare?

That is a picture of Eric Singer's custom Crystal Beat set, and as evidenced in another thread (http://www.pearldrummersforum.com/showthread.php?275331-The-Making-of-Eric-Singer-s-KISS-Las-Vegas-Residency-Kit), opus138 disputes that set being an actual Crystal beat set. Whether or not Eric Singer ever requested a clear-shelled snare drum, or simply opted for the one shown in the picture, is anyone's guess.

I dislike the FF drums. I might get a snare with hardware like the kit. I only have a 14x5 acrylic Sonor snare. I'd like a deeper snare as well.

I am looking to order a clear shell for a 5x14 Free Floater (part CRB 1450SO-730)

For those who have ordered a Crystal beat (shell only), where did you order it from...what was the price?

Thanks!
