For years, different types of wood are made for making drums, also in different combinations. But for the Reference Series Pearl is gone one step further with the technique. As a basis, use was made of maple, but added in small boilers birch and large boilers African mahogany. Thus every boiler receives optimum sound. This Pearl RF924XFP / C103 is a four-part Shellset consisting of a 22 x 18 bass drum, 10 x 8 and 12 x 9 inch toms and a 14 x 14 inch floor tom. The whole is finished with the color piano black and chrome shell hardware. Special building boilers As mentioned different types of wood are used. The base is maple wood which naturally has a wide dynamic range.
With a solid layer and good distribution between mid and treble, it has been used for years in building drums. The 12 inch tom is entirely made of maple (6 layers). For smaller sizes, such as 10-inch tom are two layers of maple replaced by two layers of birch wood. Birch boosts the treble and retains the mid and bass. In floortom added just two layers of mahogany to maple, to bring out the bass even stronger.
Therefore, the bass drum also has six layers of mahogany, with two layers of maple wood around it. All layers of the boilers with Pearl's proprietary Superior Shell Technology glued together, with only the best quality wood is used.
