The workhose you didn't know you needed.


The Pearl Utility is the perfect snare drum for the musician consistently doing gigs. You would usually expect them to use a lower grade wood for something like this, but no. The maple offers such a delicious sound and will work with whatever heads you decide to put on it. This also snare has a great tuning range for people who like to change it up on the fly. Both finish selections of natural or matte black can go with almost any kit. Pick. This. Up. Adam Fox - Drum Associate Store 57 - Indianapolis

Great Snare, especially for the price!


I bought this snare to play at my church and for local gigs. I replaced the hoops with heavy duty hoops and this snare is amazing. It tunes really well low or high. I use it as my main snare for everything that I play! Its build is very well and sturdy. I got the black matte finish and I think it has a cool look to it. Overall a really great maple snare for the price
