Pearl is just killin’ it for 2016 with dazzling dual-dimensional visual effect finishes on all their maple shell packs! They are back at it again with three exclusive “Galaxy Flake” options which include “Ocean Galaxy Flake,” “Crimson Galaxy Flake” and “Slate Galaxy Flake” wraps made exclusively for Pearl by Delmar USA.

Introduced at NAMM 2016 in celebration of Pearl’s 70th Anniversary, Decade Maple drums’ remarkable quality is the final product of ten years of process and material refinement. Decade’s cross-laminated 6-ply SST all Maple shell projects with authority, reacting quickly to the stroke with beautifully resonant highs and thundering lows.

We are proud to be able to offer these 5-pc. shell packs at the same $699 Street Price as the original lacquer version, as well as back them up with our Industry-leading Lifetime Warranty.”
