Series match the type of wood used and the shell thickness to create a more natural sound for the diameter of the drum. This creates a naturally higher and sharper tone with slightly less decay. This creates a nautrally lower fundamental note and longer sustain. The 20" bass drum shell is the same 6ply with 4.8mm shellcoupled with 6ply Maple SoundRing to fatten teh bearing edge and create a low Punch. With close to 40 years of drum manufacturing experience, we understand how different woods present different tonal characteristics. With this in mind, there is not one wood type that is best at serving the purpose of every drum within the drum set.
ParaSonic combines hand-selected sheets of two of the most popular woods used for manufacturing high-end drums: maple and birch. We use the natural characteristics of each wood to create a tailored sound for each drum and its purpose within the set. That being said, maple has a naturally warm, well-rounded tone, with a balanced mix of bottom end punch, lower mid-range warmth, and hi-end attack. Birch, on the other hand, has naturally brighter tone, with accentuated highs resulting in increased attack and presence. ParaSonic's rack toms utilize a blend of maple and birch with a thicker shell to produce brighter tone, increased attack, and shorter sustain. Floor toms utilized with a thinner shell resulting in deeper tone and increased sustain.
