Unique Tonal Quality
Featuring a lining of hand-applied and lacquered fibreglass, the drums' 7-ply Poplar/Kapur shells deliver a sound distinct from that of any other kit. The Kapur wood produces a soft, dark tone with plenty of low end warmth, which is complimented by the brighter, crisper sound of the Poplar outer layers. Combined with the inner layer of fibreglass, the result is a drum with a balanced, full-bodied tone and excellent attack and projection.
The bass drum features a fully rounded bearing edge, which maximises head-to-shell contact to provide the greatest boost in mid to low range frequencies, while the toms are cut with a sharp 45-degree bearing edge for a bright, resonant tone with strong high end attack. The toms are also mounted on Pearl's OptiMount Suspension System, a low-contact mounting which increases resonance and sustain, allowing the drums to ring out as much as possible.
Classic 70s Design
Pearl first pioneered its wood/fibreglass drum shells in the late 60s, with the design gaining popularity throughout the 70s. This limited production run of modern wood/fibreglass sets pays homage to the classic design, available only as ''Traditional''-sized 3 piece shell packs, and with a choice of four lacquer finishes specially chosen to echo the style of the original 1970 offering.
The most compact set in the series, the FW903XP is balanced and versatile, featuring a 20x14 bass drum, 12x8 rack tom and a 14x14 floor tom. The kit comes complete with chrome hardware and a stylish Platinum Mist finish, ensuring it looks every bit as impressive as it sounds.
