This demo Pearl Masters Maple Reserve shell pack was used for one season of indoor marching percussion competition by Independent World group Cap City Percussion.
A classic shell fusion derived from Pearl’s original Masters shell recipe, Masters Maple Reserve drums feature North American Maple plies from our Masterworks Veneer Vault. Delivering a sophisticated balance of tone and power, its 4+4 Maple Shell Recipe yields rich, sustained lows, powerful midrange, and centered, resonant shimmer.
Masters Maple Reserve Shell Hardware offers increased resonance, improved bottom end, and a more nuanced, near field playing experience. Combining the ultra thin 4x4 shell with more efficient shell hardware reduces the overall drum weight by 30%.
