Pearl is a drum company that was founded by Katsumi Yanagisawa in 1946. In 1953, they changed the name to Pearl Musical Instrument Company. They started manufacturing drum kits, marching drums, timpanis, Latin percussion instruments, cymbals, stands, and accessories. Katsumi's eldest son joined Pearl in 1957 and began to export Pearl worldwide. In the early 1970s, Pearl was exported by Norlin, who owned Gibson Guitars at the time. So far, Pearl has made drum shells for over 30 companies. They make the shells with Superior Shell Technology.
