Task-Specific Innovation Just as each player has an individual voice, snare drums speak differently depending on shell type, size, weight, and application. With the latest Free Floating snare models, Pearl’s engineers crafted each to fit a specific task by model.
The 14”x8” Free Floater features a 1.2mm Seamless Aluminum shell with strong lows, smooth mids and sweet highs. It’s the perfect shell for this size and depth.
All Task-Specific Free Floating Snare Drums are equipped with Die-Cast hoops, free floating lugs, chrome hardware, Coated Ambassador batter head and Pearl’s new SR-160F strainer, featuring Pearl’s exclusive Click-Lock system which simultaneously “locks” the snare lever and the tension adjuster to your exact liking. The metal shell drums have a classy brushed finish, while the wood shell drums are finished in Pearl’s exclusive Satin Lacquer natural wood finishes.
