Pick up the Pearl Finalist and get ready to drive your drumline with a hard-hitting marching bass drum built to project and endure season after season.

Project With a High-Quality Birch Shell

The Finalist starts with a sturdy 6-ply, 7.5 mm birch shell providing the ideal thickness and rigidity for a marching bass drum. Birch's balanced tone emphasizes midrange punch and low-end power. Each ply adds resonance while providing rugged durability. When you strike the drum, the shell resonates fully to produce a booming, sustained tone that's highly audible. The rich birch sound carries clearly to the stands during field shows and energizes audiences. It also enables tight unison bass lines with your drumline section in competitions. Whatever your marching application, the Finalist shell projects with authority.

Tune and Play Consistently With Maple Hoops

This bass drum is equipped with 1.5" maple hoops that lend durability for consistent tuning and reliable performance. Maple is dense and rigid, adding sturdiness to withstand your most powerful strokes. The hoops' thickness provides stability to hold tuning over time, even during long rehearsals or all-day competitions. You can tune exactly how you want, confident the Finalist will hold that tension. And the hoops' rigidity gives you a solid playing response. Each stroke resonates crisply and authoritatively. Whether you're pounding out beats in the stadium or executing tricky rudiments on stage, the Finalist's maple hoops keep you sounding your best.
