Pearl Superior Shell Technology
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.
The shells that have been manufactured using the SST are of Export Series (EXX) and all the other drum kits above that range. This also includes the brad new Decade Maple series. The kits that do not have the shells made with SST are the Roadshow as it is the beginner series, the Compact Traveler as there is hardly any shell on it and the Crystal Beat as it is made of an acrylic sheet and not wood. Pearl is so confident about the kits made with SST that the shells come with a Lifetime Warranty.
