With over 500 albums to his recording credit, master groovesmith Omar Hakim’s drumming voice is saught after and respected. As 2017 marks 30 years of Pearl Drums being part of that voice, Omar’s new 30th Anniversary Limited Edition Signature Snare celebrates the back-story while looking to the future with bold new purpose.
“Part of the magic of the recording environment is knowing what elements to bring to the table to craft something great,” Omar states. “This new snare represents a similar approach: combining familiar elements together for a totally fresh result.”
A radical departure from Omar’s existing Mahogany-blend Signature drum, the new 30th Anniversary snare begins with a beaded 1mm 14”x6.5” Steel shell. A radical process called Physical Vapor Deposition adds a unique layer of Titanium Nitride to the exterior; transforming the shell material to a harder surface and giving it a shifting, iridescent purple hue.
“As one that has played a fair amount of Pearl drums in the past three decades,” Omar adds, “I’m honored to add this one to my tonal palette.”
