PEARL FREE FLOATING SHELL REPLACEMENTS
We get asked alot "are our shells compatible with Pearl Free Floating Snare Drums?" The answer is YES! all of our shells can be made to fit the Free Floating cradles. We make the shell with a flat base and a bearing edge on top. You can choose any of our constructional woods (Birch, Maple, Mahogany, Oak, Walnut or any combination of these woods). You can also choose an exotic outer ply from our range of finishes. We can Finish your shell for you with our popular High Gloss Glaze or our Satin Oil/Wax Process so all you have to do on receiving your new shell is drop it into the cradle put the top head on and play. We do advise if the Free Floater has triple flanges hoops (like in the picture) then to go for a shell 6mm or thicker as there can be too much resonance on a thin shell with no fittings attached. If your shell has Die Cast hoops then a shell around 4.5-5mm works great as the Die cast hoop on the batter will absorb and choke the shell a little to give you a nice warm but focused sound.
Free Floating shells start at £24 and plus postage
