Elegantly Simple. Incredible Solid. These are the words that best describe the new CX AIRFRAME and MX T-FRAME Carriers from Pearl, which combine a lightweight, simplistic design with rugged durability. Field tested by the Santa Clara Vanguard and Blue Knights Drum and Bugle Corps, this revolutionary breakthrough in Carrier design is highly adjustable with minimal moving parts, making this the perfect Carrier for players of all sizes and skill levels. The CX AIRFRAME Carriers feature a solid rod, form-fitting upper shoulder frame attached to a thin aluminum belly plate with extreme range of motion. The ACS (Agility Control System) Belt unites the player to their instrument for optimal stability in today's modern use of body movement. The shoulder and belly pads are removable for cleaning and are built with a "Stealth" design; the Carriers practically disappear under the uniform. The new CXBB-1 Tenor back bar provides absolute level positioning of all of the toms and features a lightweight aluminum construction. For the first time, the customer will have the option to have and 6" AND 8" tom in their sextuplet configuration. The MX T-FRAME Carriers are super-light frames that provide a sleek look and superior comfort with a wide range of adjustability to fit every size of player. Straight forward adjustments with minimal hardware makes these carriers the clear choice for any band.
