Championship Medalist Snare Drums combine the ultimate in build-quality, tunability, and appearance. The 4-ply 100% Birch free-floating birch shells of Championship Medalist Pipe Snare Drums deliver the crack and snap that makes your tunes groove, while also providing the most expressive canvas for low-dynamic playing.
Weighing in at just 13.8lbs, the Medalist is one of the lightest on the market. The weight reduction has been reached by looking into every detail of the drum, from it's 5.0mm even-ply shell, to the innovative top and bottom snare strainers featuring Pearl's Quick-Release Snare System.
The top snare mechanism features a 28-strand chrome-plated carbon steel snare which is simply adjusted via a standard drum key.
