The Pearl PHX-1616 is a 16” x 16” PHX Philharmonic snare drum which features a 4-ply African Mahogany shell with 4-ply Maple reinforcement rings. These features produce an incredibly full tonality with a natural low-frequency response that is ideal for concert applications.
This model features 6-ply Natural Maple hoops and 8 chrome Slim-Line Aluminum tube lugs with insulated low profile chrome claw hooks, as well as a special snare combination of Synthetic Gut and Heavy Coated Cables for a dark and full sound reminiscent of rope and field drums.
All PHX snare drums feature fully rounded bearing edges on both top and bottom for a fundamentally focused response and easy tuning with a variety of head styles, including calf. PHX Philharmonic African Mahogany drums are finished in a classy #210 Matte Walnut finish.
