An Introduction to Pearl Sensitone Elite Snare Drums

Updated on November 11, 2010

Of the several varieties of snare drums in the Pearl catalog, one has earned particular fame over the years for its finesse and niche appeal.

Pearl Sensitone Snare Drums are a unique series in the Pearl catalog, and are advertised as “for the discerning drummer”.

With their brilliant sound and state-of-the-art components, these instruments have been hailed as some of the best Pearl Snare Drums made-to-date.

Sensitone Elite Snare Drums offer a focused and sensitive dynamic range and come in a variety of shell materials for you to customize your sound. with each being tailored towards a specific style of music and sound quality.

The Brass, Aluminum, Steel, Stainless Steel, and Phosphor Bronze models are each tailored toward a specific style of music and sound quality.

Sensitone Snare Choices

With its bright response and cutting attack, the Brass Pearl Sensitone Snare Drum is perfect for projecting in the stadium or arena.

The “Naturally EQ'ed” tone of the Aluminum Pearl Sensitone Snare will have you sounding great on recordings.

Do you want to sound like the great drummers of classic rock? Then unlock the power of the Steel Pearl Sensitone Snare.

The Stainless Steel Pearl Sensitone Snare Drum is designed specifically for metal music and offers cutting attack and an edgy tone.

And my favorite, the Phosphor Bronze Sensitone Snare Drum is a crisp sounding drum ideal for jazz and intimate musical settings.

Sensitone Snare Hardware

Every physical component of a Pearl Sensitone Snare Drum is engineered to have a positive impact on its resonance and tone.

And more often than not, it seems that many drummers don't realize how important quality engineering and construction are to the actual sound of a snare drum.

When a snare drum is struck, its shape, density and material characteristics what is responsible for its tonal properties. The drum also needs to be able to "breathe", or resonate fully. With poorly designed hardware, the sound of a snare drum will suffer.

Pearl Sensitone Snare Drums are constructed by professional craftspeople and feature the best hardware in the business.

Sensitone Snare Value

Besides the first-rate sound you get out of them, Pearl Sensitone Snare Drums feature quality components, and are a great value. Never before have I seen a professional snare drum listed for so little- ranging from $359-$559 for their different materials and sizes.

But more importantly, each Pearl Sensitone Snare Drum is built to last.They are individually constructed with Pearl's "Superior Shell Technology"- a meticulous drum design method which ensures the highest degree of durability. But if that isn't good enough, Pearl offers a full-coverage, lifetime warrantee on all of these drums!
