    Default New member here! I acquired a cool Pearl President snare drum...help ID地g it!

Size:  57.8 KBHello everyone,

    I bought a cool snare drum a few weeks ago and would love some info on it. So here are the details.
    It痴 a metal 5x14 10 lug drum with the parallel throw off, and looks like a Jupiter, but the badge reads Pearl President Japan. Is this a Jupiter drum, but they hadn稚 changed the badges yet? I don稚 see this exact drum in any catalog.
    What year is this, and what is the shell made out of? A magnet does not stick to it, but heard there痴 a coating on the shell....true or not? Are replacement wires available? Puresound used to make them I see...
    Any help would be greatly appreciated!

    Neil

    Welcome to the Forum. I am not the expert but that snare
    is a keeper. Probably a brass shell. Late 60’s to early 70’s
    would be my guess. Someone who knows more will chime
    in. Looks to be in really great condition too.

    22"x18",10"x8",12"x9",16"x16". Ian Paice Snare. Why not ...

    Hi Eric! Thank you, I really dig it and it’s definitely a player drum, but it cleaned up pretty well. It sounds great! I was figuring it would be early 70’s from the badge but wasn’t sure.
    Thank you for the reply!

    From Pearl:

    “Neil,

    Thank you for the photos. I've been able to narrow this down to a time period of 1975-1976, when the President series was available in Japan. I believe this is a steel shell drum.

    I am going to forward a picture to my Japanese contacts, and see if they can give more definitive information.”

    Any thoughts?!

    74-75 .. if magnet doesn't stick then it is chrome over brass .. Pearl offered COB and COS snares. This snare is a Jupiter with President series badge. The japanese catalogs has this snare listed as "Professional model" and the Pearl President series of drums came with either a 14x5 or 14x6.5 snare depending on which outfit you got.

    IF your snare is anything like a Jupiter, this might help.

    That’s exactly what my drum looks like apart from the badge.
