Decade’s 6-ply/5.4mm all Maple shell is what sets it apart from the other players in the field. The final product of ten years of process and material refinement, each cross-laminated ply incorporates Pearl’s proprietary Superior Shell Technology. The resulting thin (but powerfully strong) shell reacts quickly to the stroke, producing beautifully resonant highs and thundering lows
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.

Any Pearl Tom Holder or accessory (like a UX-80 Universal Adapter) with a 7/8 post can be used to mount the drum. Available in 5 high gloss and satin lacquer finishes, fit with a Remo Powerstroke Head, and comes with the legendary Pearl Lifetime Warranty.
Gong Drums are exceptionally perfect for live and in the studio when you need the next dimension of low end after your floor toms. Split intricate patterns between the bass drum and gong drum or use it sparingly for that massive explosion at the end of a musical phrase.
