This listing is for a Pearl 14x3.5” Maple Shell free floating snare drum in #103 Gloss Piano Black that’s in absolutely stellar condition.

The "free floating" concept of removing all hardware from the shell is an extremely effective way of increasing the amount of coloration of each shell material to maximize its contribution to the overall sound of the drum. Pearl's Free Floating System also allows you the option to swap shells as easily as changing a batter head. An aircraft-quality aluminum alloy bottom edge ring is machined to provide perfect seating with the shell and is precision cut to offer the most stable, sensitive, responsive snare bed imaginable. All of the drum's hardware is attached to the edge ring (or chassis), including the throw-off, allowing the shell to resonate unrestricted.

The shell is constructed with 6 ply 100% aged premium maple. The Free Floater Maple snare features MasterCast die cast hoops for intense rimshots and incredible focus. It also features precision-fit cast steel tension rods for incredibly smooth and precise tuning, plus marching-style solid steel tension rod receivers for 100% pull-out-proof dependability.
Among the best selling and most widely used snare drums, year after year, for well over a decade.
