Now about that FREE Sensitone Snare Drum! Professional drummers have long known that the most versatile snare drum is a good and rugged metal shell snare. The most widely-used and most-recorded snare drums in history are of this type and the PEARL Sensitone 5”x14” Steel Shell Snare continues the tradition.
The chrome-plated, beaded 1mm steel shell of the Sensitone snare drum in the most widely used size 5”x14”, provides strong highs, excellent projection and a very bright but solid tone. It also features a 10-lug design using the CL-55 Bridge Lugs, the dependable SR-017 snare strainer and the strong but sensitive PEARL steel snares. The Sensitone snare drums use SuperHoop II drum hoops, well known to be strong and solid. They can easily handle your heaviest rimshots and hold your tuning, too. All of these features describe a snare drum that is FREE with the purchase of this drum set!
As mentioned, this shell set does not include tom mounting stands or hardware. The most typical mounting of the two toms would be to use two tom arms and 2 clamps, such as the Pearl TH900S short tom arm and two Pearl AX20 clamps, to attach the toms from cymbal stands, which should be of a heavy duty and double-braced type for stability. The toms could also be mounted on a double tom stand such as the Pearl T890 or on two of the TC890 or TC2000 cymbal boom/single tom stands.
Many drummers are using a drum rack these days! For this drum set, we recommend the PEARL Icon DR-501 straight drum rack or the DR-501C curved front bar drum rack. For help with mounting options, please call a drums expert at Sam Ash Direct, 1 800 4SAMASH.
