Pearl Championship ArticuLite Series

Pearl Drums has released two new drums in its Championship ArticuLite Series that cater to the needs of competitive drum lines.

The newly redesigned FFX1410/A snare drum is one inch smaller in diameter and depth to create a crisp articulation that works for both indoor and outdoor competition. It features a six-ply maple shell, high durability hardware strainer, aluminum alloy edge ring and rims, and is lightweight for increased mobility.

The PSMT Tenor compliments the FFX1410/A snare and features many of the same elements. The redesigned aluminum alloy tension casings have been substantially reduced in weight and provide a sleeker appearance. The shallower shells create a tight sound and allow the player to move quickly. The set is available in six different configurations. Both products come in standard black or white and can be made in custom silver, blue or red. For more information, visit
