Pearl 6.5x14 Brass Reference Snare info


Senior Member
Hey guys, I'm curious if any of you know the type of bearing edges that Pearl uses on these snares (Reference Brass 6.5x14 with 3mm shell). Are they rounded or 45 degrees or what? I'd like to know and I can't find much info on the bearing edges. The snare I'm talking about is the one utilized by Alex Rudinger and Travis Orbin.

The wood snares have single-45 edges, and Drum Center of Portsmouth lists the metal models as having 45 degree edges, so the one you mentioned most likely has single-45 degree bearing edges.

Gee, I once owned that drum so you think I'd remember (sold it in favor of a Joyful Noise TKO brass). I'm almost certain the edges weren't rounded.
