Pearl Masterworks Series Acoustic Drum Set

Pearl Drum Set - Masterworks Series Drum Set

Custom Drums. There seems to be quite a few companies making them these days. Most buy shells from the same manufacturer, mount hardware they bought from some place else, and apply a custom paint job. The end result, after a lot of hype, is a custom drum set...or is it?

Masterworks hopes to change the way drummers view a custom set of drums. At Pearl, the word custom holds quite a bit more reverence. It means we made it, not assembled it. It means everything about the kit is made by hand, one piece at a time, by a Pearl master craftsman. From hand selecting the finest woods and painstakingly forming the shell, to die casting and plating the hardware that mounts to it, drums bearing the Masterworks badge are one of a kind ultimate acoustic instruments, hand made to your specifications, with the expertise and quality no other company can match.

Drum Set Features:

Wood Choices

Maple has been a favorite choice of drum manufacturers since the late 1700's. Its grain is a beautiful canvas for transparent finishing techniques, and its tone is ideal for general purpose, all encompassing applications. Our North American Maple, like all of the woods used for Masterworks drums, is hand-selected to meet stringent requirements for proper density, age, and consistency of grain and color. Maple offers a smooth, warm, well rounded tone, with equal amounts of hi-end attack and mid-range body, and an excellent low-end punch.

Birch drums have gained an almost cult following over the years for  their "naturally EQ'ed sound."  Our prime Scandinavian Birch offers a slightly boosted hi-end cut, a smooth, mellow mid range and a deep low end presence. Many popular Birch shell drums have found their way into top recording studios, where they are a favorite of both the player and the engineer.

African Mahogany

Mahogany was the industry standard for drum shell for over fifty years, and one listen tells you why. Our supreme quality African Mahogany is extremely rich in low-end frequencies, with beautifully smooth mids and a slight roll-off in the higher register. Drums made from African Mahogany have warmth and body that sets them apart from all others.  Without question, if your main requirements are "bottom" and punch, African Mahogany should be your wood of choice.

Composite Shell

The beauty of Masterworks is the ability to custom configure a kit down to the wood plies used for the shells. A composite shell, featuring more than one wood, is a great way to blend the characteristics offered by different materials. For instance, you may choose outer plies of Maple or Birch for their ease of finishing, beautiful grain and sound characteristics, and inner plies of African Mahogany to boost bass and low end punch. While this is a very popular Masterworks composite, remember there is no wrong way to configure your shell and each drum in your kit can be different if you so choose.

Carbon Ply

If you desire something more futuristic, we offer the cutting edge of drums with Carbon Fiber. This ultra exotic hybrid features 6 plies of 5.4mm Maple sandwiched between an inner and outer ply of Carbon Fiber. These drums produce a sound that goes beyond description and must be experienced.

Golden Ratio for Air Vents

The Golden Ratio, also known as the Golden Section, Golden Mean, Golden Rectangle, and the Divine Proportion, has fascinated mathematicians since the time of the Pharaohs. It is a mathematical constant (1.61803) that is found repeatedly in nature and has been used by artisans for generations to create art and structure with pleasing proportions.

Stradivarius applied the Golden Ratio to define the location of the  "f-holes" and proportions of his masterwork violins. The exterior dimensions of the Parthenon are said to form a perfect Golden Rectangle. The proportions found in Leonardo da Vinci's "Last Supper" follow the Golden Ratio. Intrigued by this, our engineers asked if the Golden Ratio was applicable to drums and more specifically to the location of the air vents. For every drum depth there is an upper and lower Golden Ratio location, and testing revealed that the upper location noticably improves attack, which is perfect for snare drums, while the lower position improves low frequency response, ideal for toms and bass drums. Pearl's revolutionary new Golden Ratio air vents are so unique they're patent pending. Experience the sound of Golden Ratio air vents, centuries in the making, exclusively on Masterworks and Master's Premium series drums.
