If you are looking for a well rounded snare for a variety of musical styles, you can't go wrong with a Pearl Sensitone! The Pearl 6.5x14 SensiTone Beaded Brass snare drum has a thin 1mm black nickel over brass shell that projects a warm, vintage style tone. This shell is able to sustain its tone thanks to classic tube lug design, which make minimal contact with the shell. The Pearl SuperHoop II Hoops also give the shell a little extra room to breathe. The STA1465BR also comes equipped with a Gladstone-style throw off that is durable and highly adjustable.
In honor of Drum Center of Portsmouth's 10th anniversary, the good folks at Pearl designed a limited edition version of the Beaded Brass Sensitone that features gold-plated lugs, hoops, throw off, and butt. There are a small number of these available, and we don't expect they'll last long, so make sure to get your hands on this limited piece before it's too late!
