Once exclusively for artists, these drums now can be yours. Introducing Music City Custom. The artist experience for every drummer.
INTRODUCING MUSIC CITY CUSTOM
For over 40 years, Pearl’s exclusive USA Artist Custom shop has been collaborating with some of the most illustrious names in drumming to handcraft personal touring kits; featured on the largest live show stages across the world. Pearl's new Music City Custom Series now allows you to experience the same level of service and pride, by owning an exclusive kit precision CNC drilled and fully assembled here at Pearl's custom shop facility within Pearl’s USA corporate headquarters in Nashville, TN.
MUSIC CITY CUSTOM STARTS WITH REFERENCE
Pearl is known to produce some of the finest drum shells available today, and Pearl's top of the line Masterworks and Reference shells are truly without equal. Pearl's exclusive SST shell forming process is often copied, but never duplicated. Music City Custom drums features pristine shells of the finest wood plies, manufactured in Pearl’s renowned overseas Masterworks facility, and available in your choice of either Reference (RF), Reference Pure (RFP), or Masters Maple Reserve (MRV) shell specifications.
EXCITING NEW FINISHES AND DIECAST HOOPS
Choose from 36 beautiful covered finishes, and either RF, RFP, MRV shell specifications to experience what Pearl's top endorsees have enjoyed for years. Music City Custom RFP Series has 1.6mm FatTone Hoops offering increased strength and articulation. The Music City Custom RF Series MasterCast Hoop system prevents binding and allows the shell to resonate to its absolute fullest potential.
From hand-covering each and every shell, to precision CNC drilling, hand assembly and on to a final painstaking inspection process of every detail of each kit’s manufacture, Music City Custom provides everyone the true artist experience and a drum set like no other.
MRV SHELL COMPOSITION
Featuring 4-ply Maple reinforcement rings, Masters Maple Reserve is a natural choice for the most discerning musical pallet. This classic integration increases shell stability and tonal control, delivering rich, sustained lows and lively sonic punch. The MRV Series uses Premium North American Maple veneers from our exclusive Masterworks supply vault, the thin, 4-ply shell configuration (with reinforcement rings).
Pearl’s Superior Shell Technology utilizes a proprietary technique for achieving the ultimate air chamber. It begins with select woods chosen for their unique acoustic attributes, milled to precise thickness with overlapping scarf joint seams, for a perfect air-tight fit. The wood plies are saturated with Pearl’s proprietary “AcoustiGlue” that permeates every pore and dries to the exact consistency of the wood for optimum resonance. Finally, the plies are formed in high-temperature molds with 1000 PSI of hydraulic pressure to produce perfect drum shells that exhibit superior tone, optimal resonance and extreme strength.
