Bass Drum Assembly

The bass drum is shipped unassembled. Please follow the assembly instructions below.

1. Place the shell with the Spur Bracket facing upward on a clean, solid surface. Put the Pearl logo head on the shell, followed by the hoop, and position the hoop inlay seam between the bottom two lugs (Fig.1).

2. Insert a tension rod through the claw, place it on the hoop, and insert it into the lug nut of the lug. Then finger tighten and repeat on each lug until this side is complete.

3. Turn the drum over and attach the other head and hoop using the remaining tension rods/claws.

4. Position the drum upright and install the bass drum spurs as shown with the front of the drum about an inch off the floor. Check to ensure the spur stop locks are positioned correctly into the corresponding bracket and tighten to secure. Double-check that all wing nuts are tight, then tune to the desired pitch (Fig.2).

Tom Tom Assembly

1. Insert the two tom holders into the bracket on the bass drum with wing nuts facing outward as shown. Each tom holder is equipped with a stop lock that fits into the bass drum and tom brackets. The stop locks keep the drums from rotating while in use and memorize position settings for quick and repeatable set-ups (Fig.4).

2. Next, attach the toms to the tom holders and position the height and angles to your preference. When satisfied, set the stop lock into the slots in the tom holder brackets and tighten using the supplied tuning key to retain these settings (refer to the Set-Up

Example illustration on the first page of this manual)

Basic Tuning

Here is the basic tuning method using the snare drum as an example. Gradually tighten the tension bolts diagonally as shown to raise the overall pitch of the head. Tap the head at each tension rod near the rim as shown below and listen to the pitches.

Adjust the tuning as needed to achieve uniform pitch all around the head. Most drummers tune the bottom head of the snare drum slightly highter than the top.

Basically, the tom toms and bass drum are tuned the same way as the snare drum. However, there are three ways to tune the top and bottom heads: tune both heads to the same pitch, tune the bottom head tighter than the top, or tune the bottom head looser than the top.

Experiment to find the tuning method that works best for you (Fig.22).
