The strength and durability of aluminum, and the warm sound of wood.

A precision-milled, cast aluminum snare. At 3mm thick, it's one of the thickest metal snares available, and its soft metal provides a warm, round, full-bodied tone similar to a wood shell snare. Its black lacquer-coated shell, tube lugs, and SuperHoop II rims give it an exciting new look.

Features

  • 3mm thick cast aluminum shell
  • Black lacquer-coated finish
  • SuperHoop II rims

A GREAT SOUNDING SNARE

By Joey Handeland

from Surrey, British Columbia, Canada

Comments about Pearl Ultracast Cast Aluminum Snare Drum:

I own the 5*14 Ultracast snare. To me, it is a pleasure to play this snare. It sounds deep, punchy, woody, metallic, and earthy. I recently had a audition, in which I got the gig. There is only one snare that came with me and it was the Pearl Ultracast!!!

One classy, versatile, quality snare!

By Tony T.

from U.S.A.

Comments about Pearl Ultracast Cast Aluminum Snare Drum:

The Pearl Ultracast Snare Drum is one of the finest snares Pearl has ever made. Like the ad copy says; you get the attack of a metal drum along with the tonal richness and body of a wooden snare. The top and bottom bearing edges are beautifully cut, and the deep-cut snare beds create really crisp snare response. The Remo coated Ambassador is a perfect batter head for this drum. The new snare wires sit flat against the bottom head and that's important if you want precise snare response at all playing dynamics. The new locking strainer and butt-side provide slip-free wire tension, and the strainer is the smoothest yet! I tune the top head to C# and the bottom head a bit tighter up to E and this gives me a crisp and fat sound. Be careful with the bottom head tensioning as the snare beds are quite deep. You can see four "points" where the edges droop down. You need to see this drum for yourself to fully appreciate the craftsmanship! The outside shell has very fine horizontal lines. And, The black rims along with the black tube lugs give this baby a very classy look indeed! The sound of this drum is so clear and the heads tune so well! In my opinion, this is Pearl's finest metal-shell drum. Not cheap, but quality drums like this one are truly worth every penny. I've heard that Pearl may be discontinuing these drums! Don't do it! Please! Drummers, just go out and buy one when you can. I use the 6.5x14 size. Very highly recommended!

Best of Both Worlds

By andyman1970

from Chicago

Comments about Pearl Ultracast Cast Aluminum Snare Drum:

If you want the most versatile snare drum on the market under $400, then this is for you. The aluminum shell allows tuning for very tight crack, or deeper wood-like tones. Beautiful lacquer finish on shell as well. Pictures don't do this one justice.

awesome

By spikeman23

from alton illinois

Comments about Pearl Ultracast Cast Aluminum Snare Drum:

I have owned this snare for almost a year and am still impressed by it's sound. I like my snare drums to ring, and that is not a problem with the ultracast. I was using a Tama pb365 bronze snare as my main, but that went by the wayside once I got my ulracast. In short, killer snare.

Buy this and don't look back

By Matt-T8XVQ

from Austin, Texas

Comments about Pearl Ultracast Cast Aluminum Snare Drum:

This is the best buy in this price range or any other for that matter. I absolutely love this drum. It has the warmth and cut anyone could expect, and the volume is incredible. The pictures don't do it justice, you have to see it in person to get the full picture. Do not hesitate buy this drum you will not be disappointed. This is the best snare drum in my opinion.

The best Snare

By R1200C

from OKC, Oklahoma

Comments about Pearl Ultracast Cast Aluminum Snare Drum:

One of the best snares I have ever seen. You can't see it in the pictures but there are small lines that run around the drums thick shell. What struck me first when I saw it was how military the thing looks. I had compared this and the noble cooley alloy classic and the pearl blew it away. I highly recommend the snare you will not be disappointed.
