Pearl DUX1450BR DuoLuxe Chrome over Brass 14x5in Snare

Deluxe is the world’s first inlaid metal shell snare drum; combining Pearl’s classic dual-beaded Chrome/Brass Jupiter snare alloy with two finish bands of Nicotine White Marine Pearl, for a singular look and sound.

In celebration of three-quarters of a century of iconic drumming sounds and sciences, Pearl presents Duoluxe: a modern take on a legendary, “inter-planetary” snare drum sound.

With the look and rigidity of our trademark dual inverted shell beads, Pearl takes the chrome-over-brass alloy shell of our classic Jupiter snare and inlays it with two finish bands of Nicotine White Marine Pearl. This gives the shell a singular look and adds tonal control to its unbridled sound.

Our “Battleship” Lugs, smooth SR017 Strainer, and solid 2.3mm SuperHoop II triple-flanged hoops balance out the package, for classically graceful drumming charisma.

A classic Pearl formula for the exceptional snare drum sound. Experience the Jupiter sound with a dynamic new look.

The Return of the Jupiter Sound

Originally launched in 1974, Pearl’s Jupiter snare drum quickly became a player favourite because of its pristine Chrome-Over-Brass shell, three bead design, and Parallel Action Strainer for superb sensitivity. Through the years models varied from three to two inner shell beads to both Parallel Action and Standard Strainers, but all had a lively, stunning sound. The universally desired, fully-rounded midrange snare shout of Black Nickel Over brass drums is here, but with a slightly higher fundamental pitch.

Nicotine White Marine Pearl Shell Inlays

Another Pearl first, Duoluxe features the only inlaid metal shell in the snare drum world. Our inverted two-bead shell design made famous on vintage Jupiter models is painstakingly filled with hand-cut strips of Nicotine White Marine Pearl (#405). This not only delivers a slightly tempered shell overtone but showcases a unique and instantly noticeable look.

2.3mm SuperHoop II

Our strong triple-flanged hoop is made for tuning integrity and maximum shell resonance in play.

SR017 Snare Throw Off

This quick, simple strainer delivers effortless switching and optimum sensitivity control.

Ultra-Sound Snare Wires

Ultra-Sound Wires feature a unique 6mm Phosphor Bronze mounting plate with three different mounting options (Channel Chord Receivers, Standard Chord Receivers, and Strap Receiver,) and “I”-Type Graduated Tension Mounting for even tension in general purpose applications.
