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.
