PEARL DRUMS MP4 SERIES MASTERS MAPLE PURE
THE MASTERS YOU REMEMBER, A SOUND YOU’LL NEVER FORGET.
In celebration of three decades of Masters quality and excellence, Pearl fuses new appointments, refreshed finish and hardware choices, and the ground-breaking resonance of the R2 Air Tom Suspension System with the original Masters MMX 4-ply, 5mm shell with 4-ply Re-Rings.
Bridging the Gap Between Studio and Stage.
Classic Maple Drum Tone.
Since their introduction in 1993, Masters Series drums have been a professional standard for premium tone. Originating with the 4-ply MMX Shell Recipe, Pearl’s combination of hand-curated North American Maple veneers with precision hardware appointments has found a performance home with countless drummers from the recording studio to the concert stage.
Masterworks Quality. Masters Value.
Now, Pearl reimagines the MMX shell recipe with Masters Maple Pure. Featuring hand-curated premium shell plies from Pearl’s Masterworks Veneer Vault formed with our Superior Shell Technology process, each 4-ply Maple shell is fitted with 4-ply reinforcement rings. This creates a sonic balance of powerful midrange and smooth resonant attack.

The 4+4 Masters Shell
4-ply (5mm) Maple shell with 4-ply Maple Re-Rings
Warm, Focused Maple Tone.
Sings with Maple warmth and focused punch.
45° Bearing Edge
Precise, low contact edge adds resonance and tonal focus.
Using the world’s first high temperature hydraulic curing system, Pearl’s SST method was developed to craft a multi-ply, bonded drum shell with single-ply resonance and strength. This proprietary technique begins with hand-selected premium hardwoods chosen for their unique acoustic attributes. Each layer is milled to precise thickness and bonded into 2-ply panels. Our trademark overlapping scarf joint seams are added to ensure a perfect air-tight fit. The wood plies are saturated with Pearl’s exclusive “AcoustiGlue”, which 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, producing the ultimate air chamber for optimal resonance, extreme strength, and superior tone. All shells are tested for flatness and roundness before drilling and assembly to assure supreme head-seating and tuning.

R2 AIR TOM SUSPENSION SYSTEM & GYROLOCK-L TOM HOLDER.
A giant leap in drum resonance physics, the R2 Air Tom Suspension System improves overall tone by delivering true, uncolored sound from each rack tom, creating a transitional bridge to floor toms.
